    Those three former rockets. We knew they were good, but you gotta give Doc Rivers ton of credits to elevate them into a system that has achieved quite a feat without an all star.

    This was so satisfying to watch. Make them go to 7 games...at least try.

    The Clippers have been the biggest surprise of the season.

    I give credit to Doc for just throwing away the leash. Houston was so afraid to unlesah Bev and Montrezl because they were so undisciplined and would get fouls and techs. How many times were the Rockets trying to calm Bev down when he was going at Russ? There aren't thriving because of system.

    I'm just glad for any added time for Capela to rest and get over his URI illness. I want this team as close to 100% as possible when facing the Worriers.

    Not sure this game actually bought us time. If it goes to 7 then yes.

    Less time for them in between series is also good for us.

    He did a great job. But he does have a team full of Rockets legends.

    Not at a skill level. I'm talking about their personality. Houston thought if Bev became too rabid it was a detriment to the team. Rockets maybe should have just let him go crazy.

    The Clippers are okay, but don't overrate them. Remember how we demolished them on their home court at the end of the season.

    Instead, the Warriors are making them look better than they are. I've been saying it for months now, this version of the Warriors has some serious issues. Same great shooters, but there are chemistry issues that greatly affect their play. Previous Warriors teams would never have allowed the comeback OR this game, both at home. This would've been a sweep in any of the last few years.

    Agreed it's good for us if they get less rest, but I guess it was in the context of giving Clint more time to get healthy.

    Where are you going with this? Lol

    There was a comment made about Clint getting more time to recover and I said the game won by Clips doesn't give us more rest.

    Really I don't know if you're debating, making a point or what.

    Calm down. I am not contradicting you. Just saying 2 day extra rest probably doesn’t make a big difference.
