    Gordon fills in as starter (and kicks it up a notch).....Luc and Gerald Green get to kick it up a few notches.

    Hope it’s just a cramp. His walk looked normal when he headed to the locker room.

    It’s going to have to be a combination of the three. This insane we’re talking about this. I can’t believe we’re up 3-2 on this team. It’s just amazing. We also don’t know how bad cp’s Injury is yet. Hopefully it just tightened up.

    I feel like he could make his walk look normal even if he was shot in the leg in that atmosphere. Cp is a straight gamer.

    Remember last year Lenard injured and Spurs dominated us at our home. Sometimes lineup changes can catch opponents off guard.

    Hopefully. I’ve gone thru plenty of hamstring injuries.....hard not to limp when walking. I’m a gamer too!

    I love pain.

    i think if CP3 can't go we will look at a rotation of:

    capela (30)
    tucker (42) - luc (20)
    ariza (42)
    gordon (40) - gg (26)
    harden (40)

    If CP3 is out you're going to need 60 combined points between Gordon and Harden in order to win. Fortunately that's very possible.

    Has to be LMM. Even if his offense is suffering he’s a better defender than CP3. Have to hope Gordon can pick up the slack for LMM offensive limitations and harden can facilitate more to cover CP3’s responsibilities.

    Luc is the only real option IMO.

    I believe that all hands on deck for Saturday. MDA needs to play as many as possible. Harden will need to be substituted in order to be able to have the energy to play all of the 4th.

    Unleash ROAD RYNO!!!

    Also, running the O for 5 min a half through Iso Joe on the block might not be a bad idea. We're trying to slow the game down and muck it up anyway so why not run some playmaking from the block with Iso Joe?! Might be able to get Iso Joe his favorite looks but more importantly could get some wide open looks from the perimeter on kick outs.

    Ryan Anderson is a no-go

    GS will simply isolate on him and score at will every time.

    We can win Game 6. That team over there is still underestimating the Rockets. Kerr was grinning down the stretch, Curry was laughing during the game, and they think CP3 is done for the series. Punch them in the mouth during the first quarter, hang on until late, D up, watch them get tight, and take it.

    Need some solid D minutes from Luc, need to steal a few minutes with Ryno when Looney/Bell are out there, GG needs to play under control, and Harden and EGO need to ball out.

    What's the one thing you should never do to the Houston Rockets?
