    It’s genius really. OKC will expect their 3-pt shooting to bail them out of any deficit in the playoffs. Joke’s on you, Thunderboo.

    It’s a bad loss, and I definitely scared some people in my building with my cries of anguish following the PG 3 and Harden’s miss(es). At the end of the day though, it was a lack of late game focus. They let go of the rope and it was crystal clear in the 4th. It’s a costly lesson in the importance of focus given the seeding ramifications, but better now than in the playoffs. Counterpoint is that the Rockets have been spectacular at blowing leads so this is a cause for concern.

    Final counterpoint to the counterpoint is that they’ve tightened that up dramatically in the last portion of the season. Here’s hoping that the playoffs show the Rockets at their best. I’m all in! Let’s go!!

    I believe they were holding back too. If playoff game, MDA would have been on the sidelines and he would have made a difference with the lack of offensive adjustments in 4th Q.
