The disheartening thing about the loss in Game 1 was how the Dubs didn't even break a sweat.

    I say that the guy in iso (Harden/Paul) are the ones who suffer fatigue more, and we need those guys somewhat fresh for crunch time.

    Taking on a team by yourself .. driving, juking, spinning, contact near rim .. all that will wear you down fast if it's the same thing over and over.

    Predictable.

    I don't think it has anything to do with the mental impact on the other team.

    Draymond does it to fire himself and his own team up. And it works.

    What i'm shocked about is that the refs embrace that Draymond attitude and even seem to encourage it sometimes. If I'm a ref that dude is getting ejected the moment his hands touch anyone, or the first time his rotting, fetid mouthbreathing stench comes near me after a legitimate foul call.

    I wish this team just had prancing, dancing princess Curry, or just gutless sell-out Kevin Durant, or just Satan's excrement, Draymond Green. Even two out of three. All three is just too much hatred for one team.

    It took a while after the mid-fourth quarter last night for me to get rid of my seething malice.

    Like others have said, I'm not sure why I watch when I know exactly what to expect. Love for my home team dies hard.

    Changing the offensive gameplan will help. Iso worked for one half. Won’t work for a whole game. Roleplayers need to step up. Mike needs to show us that he is that „offensive genius“ and create great plays to get easy baskets. If we’re doing the same in game 2, it could get even uglier, considering how well james had it going.

    This isnt an issue of the Rockets not being good enough. The problem is that the Warriors have four All-NBAers whom are all at the apex of their careers. 2 of those 4 are top 5 players amd 3 of the 4 are top 10 to 15 defenders inlcuding one of which maybe the best in the league. The Rockets have had a historically great year and if it wasnt for such a team like the Warriors, would win a championship with ease. It’s frustrating to know this but at least we know that with today’s rules, no team in NBA history would have a shot against them either...

    Yup, the Rockets this year are probably close to what the warriors were pre-durant, meaning they may have had a very competitive series against the 73-9 warriors and possibly beat them. You add durant to that mix now it's just unfair. Screw Durant for that pussy ass move. He thinks winning championship makes it all worth it but people will always remember that his mentally soft ass joined the 73 win team that beat him in order to win a ring.

    See you in 5 years then...

    Look, it sucks that there is only 1 team in the league that is a clear favorite and everyone else is fighting for second best.

    But I've stuck with this team for many years when we didn't even have a shot at the western conference finals. So I'm enjoying it no matter what. I got to celebrste the 2 championships but i also had to endure the Barkley, Pippen, Francis, Yao, Tmac, Kevin Martin years.

    So I'll take 65 wins and the western conference finals every year vs the last 20 years of scraping by with 50 wins and a first round exit. It could be much much worse.

    Maybe we will get lucky and sneak in a championship one year if GS suffers injuries at the right time. Just keep this group together but replace Ryno and EG. Stay ready to take it if the opportunity presents itself because the only thing that will beat GS is injuries.

    Durant is a clown man. He doesn't realize that no one will ever take his success with the Warriors serious.

    What killed them against Cleveland was Green getting suspended and then getting injuries after the series got extended. That’s what it takes to beat a team full of allstars.

    OP, get serious.
    Didn't break a sweat?
    Like they were just toying with us in the first half? IT WAS A TIE GAME AT THE HALF!
    If they were capable of toying with us they would have had a 30 pt spread.
    Even the second half was within 7-10 pts most of the way. That's no blowout.

    Believe me, IF THEY COULD HAVE, they would have liked to have blown us out by 30 just to demoralize us.
    If a few of those Moute layups go in, this would have been an extremely close game.
    But, one was coasting and the other was desperate? You're so funny you should take that act on the road.

    So, if the Rockets win by 5 or 10 you will consider us, 'not breaking a sweat' or just lucky?

    Did someone use "break" and "sweat" in the same sentence?

    You missed the fact that Stephanie was doing that on purpose. I can read his lips:
    -I dare you to shoot while I play dead. I bet you will miss.
    *CP3 misses*
    -Told ya
