    The Rockets are currently looking like an inconsistent borderline playoff team. This is all strategy and theatrics. Truth is we haven't seen the real Rockets yet. The real team is waiting to show out in the bright lights of the playoffs. In a couple of weeks, the Rockets will flip the secret switch that only true fans know they have and become the Clutch City Playoff Rockets. They will confuse and demoralize unsuspecting and underestimating opponents.

    Nobody wants to see the Rockets in the playoffs. The Playoff Rockets are disciplined, focused, consistent, efficient, sharp-shooting, ball-moving juggernauts. Playoff Rockets move without the ball, play hard at all times, score effortlessly, and make plays for each other on offense and defense. Playoff Harden is relentless on defense, takes care of the ball and doesn’t throw bounce passes in traffic. He is itching to show Curry and the world who the real MVP is in a run that matches Hakeem in ‘95 destroying Curry, Durant/Westbrook, Duncan/Kahwi, and Lebron with no mercy. Playoff Dwight rebounds ferociously, rotates on defense, sets picks without fouling, and gets position in the paint and gets fed an endless supply of easy dunks and alley-oops. Playoffs JB has hundreds of unstoppable plays that he is saving for the playoffs and keeps the team fired up and motivated for the entire game. Playoff Bench hits shots all around the court and creates countless matchup problems. Playoff Rockets can out shoot Golden State, and out roleplay the Spurs. They are itching to destroy both of them.

    Time for the fans to get ready for the playoffs and the Playoff Rockets. Who’s ready? #Pursuit #ClutchCity

    Funny, I was thinking this today. What if this is a scheme for the Rockets to face the warriors in t he 1st round to get revenge. Yup, it's all by design from Morey, Genius!!

    anyone that thinks the rockets wont win a championship these playoffs is an idiot. little do they know, is that the rockets will turn the corner come playoff time. jb's rotation and gameplan will make much more sense. and harden will show everyone what a real mvp look like.

    I counted at least 20 major fallacies in your argument, and there are probably more. I've bolded a few of them here for you. :grin:

    Yup, we're playing the long con here. We might even finish in the 9th seed, and not make the playoffs. That's when we'll strike.....when everybody least expects it!

    If a Rockets team suddenly shows up in the playoffs, but no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?

    I think the OP is a post by the new, more-friendly and positive Microsoft AI Bot...who Microsoft apparently aimed at positive tags like #Pursuit on twitter this time...then he trended to the #IBelieve and #ClutchCity tag from there...and found a URL to this site.

    My statistical analysis reveals an 83.78 percent chance of making it to the finals and a 93.26 percent chance of winning.

    the graphs can be found here, I think JC had some typos.

    http://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2016-nba-picks/

    90% chance of making it to the first round and a less than 1% chance of winning the title.

    Those are easy keystrokes to mess up. ;)
