    They could have won both games easily in Portland. Decided to make the first one harder than it needed to be... and completely blew the second one.

    Sure, Portland can certainly play better than they did tonight... especially LMA... but I don't think the Rockets have any "fear" of playing in Portland.

    Frankly, besides tonight's 4th quarter, they've looked far better there.

    I would actually slightly favor them to win game 6 over a game 7 (mainly because it is just damn hard to win 3 in a row vs. any team).

    It just stings that this series should either be over in our favor, or we should be up 3-2.

    At least this night gives hope since Harden already quit, we didn't execute well, didn't shoot our threes well, referees were against us, we played too much iso and hero ball and Daniels was not involved. Pressure is on them!!

    We protect our lead, we hold on to our possessions and go through Howard in the post, we use shot clock down stretch. We win.

    Howard did look like he was going to cry. He deserves it. I wanted to slap Aldridge when he was looking for a call the post. Don't you guys have enough already?

    Somebody needs to check the TNT statistician. First, they referred to the 94-95 team as Clutch City, then Ernie says first game of the series the road team lost. Rockets 93-94 team was Clutch City and Rockets lost game 4 Portland. Hey TNT, are you hiring?

    Yup gotta give Lin his props. We need him to be aggressive game 6. When he attacks the basket without hesitation this team is hard to beat.

    I think Howard and Harden are feuding...im not sure for what tho? Maybe he doesnt like that McHale is going to him a lot? Maybe Howard is defending McHale behind close doors and James is blaming McHale for everything going wrong in the series? They look disconnected out there.
