    Rockets played a 2:30 game on ABC against the Clips on March 15 . . . and won. The Beard had 34 points. Just need to do it again.

    I'm just glad that if the Rockets lose, I won't have to be exhausted staying up late in addition to emotionally spent.

    Basketball Reference's model has it at exactly 50%/50%.

    Coin flip, but what was the chance we'd win the series after game 4? 5% :grin:

    Rockets are undefeated on abc afternoon games this year (4 games)

    Harden loves playing Sunday afternoons, averaging 30(.44)/6/6/2/1. I expect a big game from Harden this Sunday. He's rested and healed up.

    Smith and Brewer finally got their rhythm and are rolling now.

    Jones playing with incredible effort. Found his shooting stroke and finally hitting his free throws too.

    Howard found his groove against LA bigs and is beasting on the boards. Out-rebounding DeAndre 36-20 the past two games.

    I'm feeling good about this game. However, the Rockets have been an enigma and anything can happen. Just hoping the Rockets of the last 2 games show up.

    How interesting when 6 days ago, before game 4, ESPN BPI had this:
    [​IMG]

    So we went from a 16% chance to a 53% chance to advance to the WCF.
    Also interesting, maybe, is that ESPN BPI from last Sunday...if Rockets can pull this out tomorrow, ESPN would have been 100% wrong about EVERYTHING! They had Bulls, Grizz, Wizards, Clippers.

    We have to keep this momentum rolling!

    I'm feeling it and I'm sure the team is feeling it but they can't take this game for granted. The Clippers will have had 2.5 days to regroup and Doc Rivers is a good tough coach who led the Celtics through a very hard slog to win it all in 2008.

    I don't think the Clippers are going to lay down for the Rockets. As much as the McHale was talking to the Rockets about pride before game 5 Rivers is telling the Clippers that. They have the chance to make team history by going to their first WCF and were humiliated like the 1992 Oilers in game 6. That's gotta sting for Rivers, Paul and Griffin.

    Rockets can't take this for granted.

    If Rockets can pull off the 3-1 comeback then you would have to imagine Morey is bringing all these guys back next year.

    I think another year might propel them to GSW levels.

    Team belongs in the elite category.

    I would look at moving Jones/DMo and some first rounders for an upgrade at PF/PG.

    Think this team is set with the headband brigade off the bench.

    Terry saved up his mojo for the playoffs.

    He has been a plus with us and you could argue that this team wouldn't have been in game 7 without him.

    I think we will see a game 5 repeat.

    Rockets are confident and you know the doubt has crept in the Clippers.

    They have a history of this, and once teams start getting physical with them, they falter.

    Rockets need to bring the "Nasty" as Pop would say. Clippers are still a soft team. Beat them down in the paint!

    This team has so much heart. Harden is gonna have a lot of energy for this one.

    Am I the only 1 watching the Miracle Speech on repeat?

    The Clippers time is done...IT'S OVER! I'm sick and tired of hearing about what a great basketball team LA has. SCREW THEM! THIS IS OUR TIME!
