    Dwight came back and told him, "It's okay." on the next play or something.

    It was subtle but I think the small things like that make a big difference. Dat leadership.

    Also, I have Steve Ballmer's clothes from yesterday's game. I'm gonna go as Ballmer to Game 7. Be on the lookout.

    My favorite moment was Blake hitting that 360 layup or whatever it was. Clippers just stopped playing right after that moment.

    it's almost like the Rockets took offense to that and they should have.....it's sparked that run.

    I think in the heat of the moment I said "Damn it, Jones! Make a ****ing lay-up! Always missing lay-ups! C'mon, you're 6'9", put the ball in the basket! ****!"

    That was coincidently the moment that I felt like punching a hole through the wall but instead opted for shutting off the tv. Shoulda just punched the wall and kept the TV on.

    Did Dwight take him out in the following play or was that later?

    I almost felt like that. Then, I remembered that in basketball, you can't be perfect, only consistent in effort and focus. The great teams knew this. We'll be more resilient from this. Harden will be the last on the team to learn it, ironically.

    Yep early on Jones missed a giveme...and I wondered if it was an omen of another bad Jones game.

    My favorite moment(s) watching Clipper reaction to Josh Smith bombing them crazy...priceless, you could see the fear in their eyes and the hearts of the Rockets soar with each bomb. One of those great Rockets memories.

    This is hilarious!

    Please have courtside tickets. And cheer uncontrollably, do funny things with your hands, and contort your mouth in funny angles

    My favorite moment was when terry hit the last shot and there was a pause after he said his name
    It was like the shock was sinking lower and lower until you finally realise this was the greatest comeback of the season (so far)
    I still cant believe it

    In all fairness, that was an amazing (-ly lucky) shot.

    My favorite part of the comeback was watching Rivers get more and more upset.

    Upper bowl? Just being able to go to game 7 at all will be amazing!

    I love your idea of dressing up like Ballmer!

    Didn't see that Dwight told him something. Maybe I was just upset that Jones didn't convert on that 3 on 1 fastbreak.

    Did anyone else think OP was at the game and Balmer threw his shirt off and OP got it?

    Can totally see Balmer doing that.

    Which reminds me. I was at Game 1 in '95 vs the Spurs, and after the game I found David Robinson's jock strap on the floor under our basket and grabbed it. I guess his somehow lost it while trying to cover Dream. I still can't sell it on eBay though.
