    this is all on dantoni.

    We need to counter their small ball lineup. Other than risk russ getting past rondo without turning the ball over and shoot.

    i've actually started a new routine regimen just trying to get as much other stuff done until an hour after the game before trying to post. i took inspiration from morey's math & efficiency models (3min is greater than .2sec when posting)

    We took a Haymaker in the first half of the game and actually got up an fought back. I believe in Russ, an I believe they will come up with a game plan to get the dub. Go Rockets

    I hope they limit the Parsons pump faking in Game 3. Too much reticence from the three point line in Game 2.

    Rockets win the next two games. Lose game 5 then win game 6. I'm in prediction mode. Threes will be dropping this game.

    Lakers Gameplan
    Full Court Press on James Harden
    Pack the paint
    Make Russell Westbrook shoot open 3s
    Markieff Morris now is in the Rotation shooting 3s

    Rockets Gameplan
    Push the the Tempo, Make LeBron James Run and Tire Out he is saying he is getting Treatment (Steroids) after every game. Having Ice Packs on your knees is not a good sign.

    Russell still needs to attack and kick out. Don't shoot 3s and push the tempo on fast breaks.

    Eric Gordon, Robert Covington, P. J Tucker keep playing healthy and consistent.

    Mike Dantoni needs to include Jeff Green, Danuel House more on offense.

    Can Ben McLemore be in the rotation, the Rockets more than 7 players in the rotation. Austin Rivers cant play with Russell two bad 3 point shooters at once.

    I think it's time to let Ben play, he was really bad on defense in the OKC series so I get that but now is the time to play him. Ben doesnt have to have super amazing defense. If Lebron attacks him it is what it is. We need more shooting on the floor with Russ.

    Russell Westbrook needs to guard LeBron James more if Ben McLemore is on the floor. I want Ben to guard Rajon Rondo, Danny Green, KCP those players are not quick to get by guards. They cant dribble and drive quickly. Put Ben with certain players.

    Markieff should be guarded by Covington, Covington has long arms to contest 3s Markieff is not quick, Covington isnt quick either so Covington can guard the perimeter as a Power Forward.

    Danuel House, Eric Gordon is a huge Wild Card if the Rockets want to Win this Series.

    Russell, Harden, Tucker should guard Lebron or Anthony Davis.

    I thought this would stop the onslaught of garbage posts / threads during and after the game, because you'd think people would have time to think about their thoughts before typing them out.

    Nope. Shouldn't put that much faith in humanity.

    Game turned when Russ has 5 fouls and Lebron kept attacking him on top of Russ turning the ball over and missing shots.

    hate to say it, but this years CP3 and the Rockets would be up 2-0
