    We really do have bad luck when playoffs come. Hopefully he's back and ready soon. We need our Dynamic Duo lighting up the scoreboard.

    I know we don't know the full extent of his injury, but this is some sad news. Every year, something bad always has to happen to us.

    Man, not good.

    All the role players have to step up and have a consistent, maintainable rhythm during the series to pull out wins.

    We need one or two different guys to have big games offensively and key defensive plays each game.

    Bad News: His injury is more severe than Rockets are letting on. If they bring him on early it can result in a tear.

    Good News: Dun care. Not even real playoffs. Asterix playoffs.

    The terrifying thing to me is if we lose in the first round because Russ's injury cost us games, how fed up with us will James be? Seriously, that's all I could think about this morning. [​IMG]

    And this is why so many people weren’t really that interested in hearing the pro Westbrook side in the trade debate saying we got younger and have less injury risk to worry about.

    Why Fertitta? Why?

    Half-speed Russ is worse than no Russ. Let him heal.

    We have Harden, Gordon, and Rivers who can handle the ball and drive to the cup. Let’s just hope Gordon is good to go. We need that secondary creator.

    Good thing CP3 is a well known choker in the playoffs.

    Harden has such bad luck. It's like historic numbers during games don't matter such as last night. No one gets double teamed like he does and if he has a 25/7/6 game it's like he is an end of the bench scrub in the eyes of the public and media. Never seen a double standard as extreme like his in NBA history.
