    In sum: Rockets stayed calm, and are now enjoying it while they can.

    This is the key to beating the Warriors. Advantage: Rockets.

    Rockets just faced 3 straight elimination games and went 3-0 - via a reservoir of calm.

    It's inspirational when you look at it. Turns out it didn't matter if the Jazz beat the Mavs or Mavs beat the Jazz. Rockets .500 finish gets in regardless.

    Amazing how calm they were...and fans like you and Os Trigonum, too.

    Rockets revenge their WCF lost last year and beat the Warriors, face Clippers in the 2nd Round.

    Then the Clippers revenge their 2nd Round lost last year to the Rockets, face the Spurs in the WCF.

    Then the Spurs revenge their 1st Round lost last year to the Clippers, face LBJ and the Cavs in the Finals.

    LBJ gets his revenge on the Spurs for the 2014 Finals and wins the championship, returns to Miami in the offseason.

    Underappreciated pointless stat: The Rockets extend their streak for consecutive non-losing seasons to 10. The Hakeem teams got 15.

    However, the franchise-high 9 straight winning seasons (Hakeem suffered 41-41 twice) streak is over.

    The beard is nothing if not calm. In fact, just about everyone but Beverly and Montrez are calm. No minutes for those two.

    "Hope is not a strategy".

    Unless it's the mantra for a political campaign. But I digress.

    They stayed calm, continued not to play any defense and the plan worked...playoffs!

    Thanks - but we could not have done it without balance.

    Much like the Rockets perfectly balanced 41-41 season, their prolific offense and profoundly awful defense, the high-rebound rating C's on the worst rebounding team in the league...every yin needs a yang.

    There needed to be an angry mob to counterbalance the placidity.

    Clutchfans provided this in spades. It was a true team effort. #pursuit.
