    I'll be here too but this is a joke of a product and they are powerless to fix it

    Blazers would have beat us, too.

    Classic rockets. Blow it up, tired of watching the same ending over and over

    The Clippers will absolutely destroy the Lakers. The Lakers will never shoot that well from the 3pt line ever again.

    It was a nice distraction and although I'm pissed tonight back in March I didn't think I would see NBA basketball until the next season.

    All that said I don't think I'm going to watch the rest of the playoffs.

    Nah I was at game 6 and I’m a harden Stan. That was crushing to watch him flop like that. At least he played well tonight. At least we don’t have to hear that **** again. The blame will be on russ and MDA.

    Harden in the post is an adjustment. Constant bricking of layups is on the players.

    AD is still much better, more consistent than PG13 as the second dude.

    At least this year.

    We weren't beating the Laker's but it's impossible to overstate what giving away Game 2 meant. Hey, could have been worse...we were fortunate to get past OKC.

    They have better players from top to bottom than the Lakers.

    Only Harden and McLemore weren't wastes of space.

    Man, someone got to explain how the wheels just fell off even without D. House we should not be getting blown out.

    Which they didn't show.

    Luka scared them without Porzingis.

    Now tired Denver will try that too.

    The refs would still prefer LBJ's team.

    Yeah, the players could always play better, no one denies that...but it would be nice if they tried different things.

    I like Dantoni. It was a good hire at the time, and he's done some nice things for us and Harden, but he isn't the coach you want to win it all. I don't remember when it was, but he says stupid things like (when being asked about defense) "well we are gonna play defense, but you have to outscore us hardee har harr..."

    Roster needs legit reshaping and we need guys that can actually shoot the 3 efficiently, not just guys that take a bunch of 3's.
