    I believe but I also believe we could get more help for Ryan Anderson's contract. That is truth.

    The thing is the Warriors have players that play as a team on Defense and Offense.

    We have 2 way players in our stars (well, mostly) but a big chunk of the role players are just good enough for one side of the ball consistently.

    The heart says Houston, the Head and Brain says Houston has to make a pact with the devil to pull thru.

    I prefer Shaq over Barkley. That is the least of the Evil and a petty choice. (Mumbling, Belittling, Shutting down Chuck)

    I always have and always will believe in the Rox, they’re the only professional sports team I’ve ever truly followed.

    That’s why, even if they were down 3-0 I would still believe in a historic comeback, though thankfully they’re only down 1-0 and have more than a punchers chance of getting back in this.

    F*ck the fair-weathers, band-wagoners, and chicken littlers. F*ck the warriors, smug-ass Stevie Kerr and his frontrunning, deck-stacking, media-darling team.

    GO ROCKETS!!!

    I believed before last night but the whole team doesn’t appear good enough to beat the Warriors unfortunately especially the role players. I feared the role players would get exposed this series and they were last night. On top of that MDA was out coached as well.

    It's just one game. Doesn't change anything much.

    Rockets should bounce back and win G2.

    Wouldn't surprise me if Rockets win both G3 and G4. And wouldn't surprise me if the Rockets lose both G3 and G4.

    I believe. But sometimes you just need to be realistic. No team can beat the Warriors. They just out talent you. Simple as that.

    always have, although I’m not gonna lie, I would’ve called the series a wrap if they had lost game 2

    I expected us to split the 1st 2 games at home and split the 2 road games at Oracle...Rockets in 7 is my prediction

    It would surprise me if Rockets win both G3 and G4.

    I feel like the refs and the league wouldn't allow any team winning twice in a row in Oracle. Conspiracy talk.

    I'm deluded enough to be devastated if they lose the next two games. Rockets have been more focused closing on the road.

    Next two games. They said they did what they were supposed to do by winning one game here. Ok, now the pressure is on them. Of course, believe, let's steal game 3.

    At this point in the series nothing surprises me no more.

    The team wins with most players scoring.

    You don't believe. You believe we can't beat them. This is discussion about believing we will win it all! There's no room for doubt in here.

    Did this one change your mind if you didn’t believe before?

    My resolve: strengthened
