    Games 1 and 2 2015 WCF
    Game 5 2016 1st round (squad ex. Harden went 0% from the field for 1 point in the 1st)
    Game 1 2018 WCF

    Sigh.

    Told ya Sam.

    Rockets better win the next game or else it is going to a sweep.

    I gave Rockets a chance to win one or at most two games.

    Too much star power on the Warriors and we have a 20M player in Ryan Anderson giving us nothing.

    Harden was pretty much All-World.

    Rockets played pretty decent overall... Warriors are just too good.

    This is why you need a Zaza on your team.

    So he can play dirty and start injuring players otherwise it's a wrap!

    Luc hasn’t been the same since the injury.

    How is this his fault? We’ve been playing this way all year.

    He really did.

    The Warriors shooting is insane.

    Nothing you can do on KD other than hope he’s off.

    This game played out just like our other losses in these playoffs besides the big game from harden. We just need to hit more open shots. This game really doesn’t have me shook. I think we’ll bounce back and I don’t see any reason we can’t take one in GS either. I still think this one is going the distance.

    I don't know what people were expecting. This was a respectable showing by the Rockets. Harden, Paul, Capela and Gordon all had decent games. The rest of the team was crap, but you got acceptable contributions from the 4 main guys.

    KD is just ridiculously good, and the other guys were already great before. It's infuriating, but I don't think any "poor officiating" or dirty play can take anything away from the fact that Warriors are just very, very talented.

    The Rockets are going to need perfection to win against them.

    Pretty much. Lowe had David Thorpe on his podcast and they identified KD as the X factor (which they admitted sounds silly) because if he's on, there's nothing we can do.

    I was in awe two times from Durant.

    The two j’s over Capela and Luc.

    Incredible shooting.

    Harden will give us games like this until the wheels come off, say, in Game 4 or 5. And then all the trolls will come out and say what a choker he is.

    Considering harden and Durant are by far the best two players in this series but after that it goes.
    Curry
    Klay
    Paul
    Green.

    That tells you why we got very little shot
