We played a very efficient game. Cut out a lot of negative stuff and kept going with what we do best. The shots were falling for us too. Defensively, i thought Garcia did really nice job on Durant. Cant wait the next one.

Parsons quote! LOVE IT! Harden was A BALLER TONIGHT! Ya know Clutch it would have been horrible if we had got swept bc outside of game 2 we've been in every game.

Funny quote, and reaction that was had between the Thunder fan and you. I think ever since game 2, and really even game 3 the Thunder have that KILLER mentality, but I think they are starting to question it. It can be seen in their body language like I said since at least game 2.

Thanks again Clutch. Know you're on overdrive right now. So to take the time for that this early Thanks!

We're going back home baby!

Nothing’s “done” here. The Rockets are a long ways away from winning this series as they are still pretty big underdogs, but they’ve made real progress on a big stage here, and for a young team like this, that’s everything. After Game 3, there wasn’t much to build on, especially with how the series had gone for Harden and the injured Jeremy Lin. No one wanted to say it, but a sweep would have been a waste, a lost opportunity. Now we’ve got something: A superstar effort from Parsons. Another from Harden. Role players are making key contributions. There are notches on their belt now, valuable experience being gained.

They can see it, we can see it and, more importantly, Dwight Howard and other free agents can see it. There’s a lot of fight left in the Rockets still, but it was never about this season — it’s about the future — and right now, that is being set up quite nicely.



Great end to a terrific read, Clutch!

I made the drive up this morning to Oklahoma City and am thankful I did — it was en exhilarating experience to be here live. I’ve been to numerous Rocket games in my life that have been just tremendous to witness in person, but there’s something uniquely thrilling about watching your favorite team on the road in front of 18K+ fans that want to rip them to shreds. Because of that atmosphere and the do-or-die stakes, that had to be one of the best experiences I’ve ever had watching the Rockets live.

__________________________
I bet. That's quite the journey and glad you did it!
__________________________

Patrick Beverley is all-out, all the time. Gutsy, energetic, battle-tested… this guy is not playing like any rookie I know. I thought he played very well despite a chorus of boos every time he touched the ball. He logged 39 minutes, finishing with 14 points and 8 boards, and knocked down a couple of big threes. I think Jason Friedman of Rockets.com made a great point when he tweeted, “With teams like Utah, Dallas and others so desperate for a point guard all year, the Rockets signed a readily available Beverley.” There are a number of teams with lousy backup point guards (and a few starting point guards) and the Rockets scooped one up from Russia who has stepped right in to start and is playing well enough to be a podium invite after playoff games. This is a major credit to Daryl Morey and staff… and it’s worth another reminder that he’s signed for two more years at a bargain price.

__________________________
How quickly you've forgotten about Sam Cassell! The boos are unique, but Sam was an outstanding rookie pg in the playoffs.

Hung on every word. Great work and thank you.

Clutch, the "trained" atmosphere you spoke about in OKC is no coincidence. Their Game Operations Manager came from the Rockets. John Leach was with the Rockets during the championship years and in the beginning of Toyota Center before taking the job with the Thunder. They put on quite a presentation with their fans don't they?

It was freaky just how much those T-Shirts they handed out to the crowd matched the team colors on the court. I'm not sure if I've ever seen it done better. I can only imagine what it must have been like for you lucky devils that went up there for the game. Sorta like a sci-fi flick wth drama, danger, near disaster, and at last a happy ending. Martin and Fish certainly look like aliens. Hell, Fisher looks like a weasel.




Rotten Fish Fisher, the Weasel. Already looking for his next team.

okc fans do a good job of showing up on time and participating, they remind me of jazz fans. as great as jazz fans were for the hometeam, the ESA has been dead the past couple of seasons.. okc fans are a kid with a new toy, thats whats really going on here.. i still think that franchise is destined to become another cleveland, charlotte, portland, sacramento type nba city. small market anti-free agent destination. well see if they continue being the "best fans in the nba" once this window closes..
