    sigh, welp we knew this was happening. Rockets have all the pressure to win this one. Everybody going to be rooting against the Rockets. I hope the Rockets come out with pride and stomp the sh-t out of CP3 and the Thunder.

    Thunder havent played against the micro ball Rockets yet so we have that going for us.

    This sh-t about to be nerve-wracking.

    Well, if we are championship material we should probably not jitter about whomever we are playing first round

    If we lose, we prob deserve all the criticism anyways.

    This shall be one fun series to watch. How fitting of a matchup. I can’t wait

    I have the rockets in 7 but depending on how long Wb is out that can change things. Harden won’t be able to beat this okc team alone, especially when the lineup is drastically different

    2nd worst possible matchup imo. Russ and gordon's health is still a concern. Our shooters haven't been making their 3's. People are in OKC's back because of CP3 revenge game against us.This is gonna be hard to watch boys.

    CP3 will go off for 50 in game 1 and will pull a hammy with 2 minutes left in Q4

    bring it on

    Probably not the best thing to say when Wb has a confirmed strained quad.

    Pretty much worst case scenario. Terrible matchup and the highest embarrassment potential.

    I am aware of WB’s injury. I am aware of Paul’s grudge and his capability to step up when angry. And I’m aware of his proclivity for injuries in big moments.

    All the pressure on us. None on OKC. Hate that.

    Russ will miss a lot of shots but he will get all the rebounds from the misses

    Why do you think "OKC is starting to fall apart"? They seem stronger than ever.

    Cool. You should probably be aware a strained quad is susceptible to a tear, especially when it isn’t fully healed. That would instantly be game over for the rest of the season
