    When Harden or Paul get a switch and Curry is guarding them at the perimeter they should look to drive. They should try and orchestrate that play. They should be able to get by Curry well. Someone else will have to step in to help and that will open Capela, or someone at the 3 pt line for a shot. They have to shoot better and We have to box out and rebound better.

    Rockets going againSt a super team so they need to get lucky.

    The best chance rockets have of not getting blown out by the warriors is arguing with the refs and playing physical the entire game.

    I thought he did well too but I can guarantee you that the Warriors are gonna exploit him on PNRs every single time.

    I really thought we lost the series already. We played unbelievably well on defense plus them missing easy shots and we still choked. This series is a wrap.

    It’s not “can’t blame the refs” it’s “the situation has been the same for years, and will not change, so stop whining about it. “

    Stop bs'ing and get the job done by any means necessary. Don't go out there timid and clumsy. Attack this team with precision and consistency. While all this is going on F the refs.

    Overall I thought our defense was really good. We forced a bunch of turnovers and stripping their players. Just have to keep it up

    Shot clock awareness, definitely...

    Drive at the rim relentlessly, use it for driving and kicking.

    P&R with Capela more often instead of having him pinned on the baseline during an ISO.

    Try Faried when the team is flat and needs a spark, and especially if Green isn't hitting.

    Defensive side was good today. Watch the passing lanes on backdoor cuts.

    Work on those box outs that enabled the Warriors to get critical 2nd half offensive boards.

    Rivers for Shumpert will be a significant upgrade in IQ and positioning that will resolve multiple issues.

    He also let Curry and Thompson shoot some easy threes during the mismatch.

    My take. Hit open 3s...dont play house. Frfr.

    As good ass nene gave it really that's an embarrassment on clint.
    Clint is the nber 1 guy that has to step up. No way nene could make himself 10 years younger then able to guard the switch...thata what Clint freaking is for. He needs to put on his big boy pants

    CP3 needs to play like he our 2nd best player

    Mda play Faried u idiot

    Tucker I dont care bro how good of d u play...hit freaking wide open 3s...hell score a point

    Austin rivers dont be sick
