    Don't get too happy about escaping Game 3 and Ken "The Mortician" Mauer. We still haven't faced Scott Foster or Tony Brothers yet.

    Will we get them in Game 4 or are they being rested for 2nd Round vs Golden State?

    I think Game 6 will be the trap game.

    Harden’s gonna be out for blood after tonight’s game. Game 3 was their only chance to make it a series. Zdog is going to have to take James hostage ala Celtic pride for this not to be a sweep.

    I thought that Game 3 was the trap game.

    How many traps are there?

    I think we will play complacent and and win it in 5 at Toyota center.

    Ken Mauer is not a mortician. He's a walking corpse, and Adam Silver is the necromancer that controls him.

    Gam 3, they trapped Harden. This game is like a road bump for the Rockets on their way to the 16th playoffs win this season.

    Now that we have 3-0, as long as nobody gets hurt, I'd welcome one or two more so–called trap games to test the Rockets "character" as Harden put it after the game at the courtside interview.

    This is too simplified. You could see that Chris Paul took him to the side and talk him through not fouling out. This was very obvious.

    I wish to see some character from all of the guys, PJ was hustling like a wild man out there, and some guys are there just turning it over, being sloppy or losing their man.

    I really just see most of the character from guys like Tucker and CP3 in these situations.

    You know some inexperienced guy like Faried or House would just lose the ball in important situations.

    I suggest to swap Jazz. We need full power to beat worriers

    I am very nervous about this series. Barkley was predicting Jazz in 6. This is definitely a trap.

    Faried is a valuable part of the playoff rotation, but defense isn't part of that, except for the occasional block, in my opinion, unless you include defensive rebounds, where he's a madman. House? He's a kid who can't believe he's getting significant minutes, or any minutes, on a contender. I'm hoping he'll settle down. I don't think Faried can spell "settle down," much less manage to do it. Not in his DNA. ;-)

    Scott Foster was running his scam at the Spurs game tonight, got a ball thrown at him by Derozan, likely $50K fine to end the game.

    Rockets might lose. 3-1 is the reflection of 13

    Harden wears 13. But we will see
