    Rockets have embarrassed the Warriors' so called 'Hampton 5' line up. In fact, it is the worst 5-man line up against the Rockets through 2 games, with a plus/minus of -8.0!:eek:

    The Rockets played great! As a Warriors fan, this is what I expected and I was more surprised by Game 1 than Game 2.

    As a team, the Rockets are more than the sum of their parts because they work so well together. Morey has done a fantastic job of getting complimentary pieces. I think the Rockets have dispelled the notion that Durant "broke" the NBA by going to the Warriors. Without Durant, the Warriors would likely be crushed in 4 or 5 games. With him, they have a chance. Every year, teams are constantly trying to improve. Houston has done a terrific job and, while I will be sad if my team loses the series, at least they will have lost to the best team in the NBA!

    With Durant, they not only have a chance, but they are favorites as well.

    I hope Rockets can continue defending Thompson and Curry well. As long as those two don't go off, we have a chance to win the game. It's tough to guard them though with how much they move.

    Thx for looking that up @Shaq2Yao (btw: when are you going to choose an avatar? or do news bots like J.R. not have code to do so)

    Here's the advanced data for Total minutes. I only include lineups that were used in both games.

    NetRtg of -15 playing nearly 45% of the games

    Curry has been pretty terrible both games.

    Losing game 1 such a gut punch.

    Iggy is washed and the more he plays the better it is for us.

    we have our own death lineup, CP3, Harden, Ariza, PJ and EG, which is more than enough to battle their so called Hampton 5 lineup, the key here we need Clint, Luc, Green all the other guys to contribute more! we not still the underdog, until we beat them 4 times, there is nothing to brag about

    The only lineups that work for the Worriers have Tony Brothers in them.
