    Through 5 games, the Gordon Wagon line up (Harden/Gordon/Ariza/Tucker/Capela) is destroying the Warriors, with a ridiculous 155.8 offensive rating, 70.5 defensive rating, and a +85.3 net rating!

    The Gordon Wagon B line up(Harden/Gordon/Ariza/Tucker/Green) is not too shabby either, with a 123.6 offensive rating, 68.3 defensive rating, and +55.3 net rating.

    Paul is flying with the team because he definitely does not want to miss the champagne shower!

    So you’re telling me the Rockets top two 5 man lineups don’t include CP3 but do include Gordon? 6 man rotation confirmed.

    This is what I saw re-watching game 5. As much as everyone keeps saying Harden is playing terribly, his +/- when he is on the floor with GG/Tuck/Ariza/EG/Capela is really good. The defense is really good.

    CP is great and he brought the Rockets back from the brink in game 5, but he was the only guy in the negative, lol.

    Rockets can do this..

    Gordon plays very well when he started for CP3 when he got injured early in the season, I have confidence the rockets can win game 6

    In Houston we circle the wagons to create an impregnable voltron of defense!

    I don't like coming into these threads because then I get a sense of hope, and I'm going to lose a life-long friend if we win Game 6 since I'll be missing it live for a baptism.

    Posted this in the game thread. Pretty amazing that Ariza, Tucker and Harden are #1, #2 and #3 in plus/minus for the playoffs. This reinforces what you posted above.

    Plus / Minus for 2018 Playoffs, starting 5 for Game 6:

    Houston +441
    #1 Ariza +113
    #2 Tucker +110
    #3 Harden +106
    #8 Capela +82
    #33 Gordon +30

    Warriors +370
    #4 Green +102
    #5 Durant +98
    #10 Thompson +62
    #13 Curry +54
    #13 Looney +54

    We can always count on you bro! Lol

    Also... Hampton 5 is the best starting 5 lineup of all time and GSW with a gentleman's sweep in 5.

    If we didnt fumble in that first game against them we would be chilling right now. Hehe. But i guess if PAUL is destined to really not play in the finals with our team then the Gordon wagon line up needs to be tested against the champ.

    just for perspective those lineups are usually when the warriors go to their bench which is much weaker than ours. the cp3 lineups are usually against the 4 all stars which is why we don't outscore them by as much.

    still we will probably see that first lineup for the first and last 6 minutes of each half. so that's 24 minutes of an effective against the warriors. we will probably see the green lineup to finish the 1st and begin the 4th quarters. so that's 36 minutes of our top 2 lineups. the question is those other 12 minutes (to begin the 2nd, and finish the 3rd quarters) when we have luc out there.

    i believe our defense will be ok, but can we produce enough offense? we might hold them to 100. but can we score 105 without cp3 and with harden probably out of gas by the 4th. remember they will go at him every time now. they know he can't take any plays off on offense, so they won't give him any off on defense tonight.
