    Either LeBron or AD is going to get injured. Russ and Gordon are going to destroy them. I predict that this will be the greatest playoff series of Gordon’s career and he will forever be engrafted into houston rocket history.

    Lakers are going to struggle to score this series.

    their top 3 iso guys in points per possession

    Lebron .9
    AD .96
    Kuzma .65

    OKC’s top 3
    Paul .99
    Schroeder 1.02
    Shai 1.0

    Nobody is talking about this, but it’s going to be a problem!

    Harden and Westbrook will destroy Lakers guards.

    Tucker and Covington can guard LeBron and Davis.

    Lakers will be rusty.

    Game 1 Rockets win.

    Put Tucker on Lebron and make him be the scorer.

    Shut the passing lanes to everyone else.

    No one picks us to win the series, so no pressure. Deep inside we know Harden and Russ are capable of putting up 60+ points a game to match if not out play AD and LeBron. It's the role players. They need to step up big time.

    Honestly believe this is one of the teams our system can beat mathematically. Like our chances. They don't have a defensive beast for Harden. We should thrive. Davis is very good, but he's a turn around shooter which should keep us out of foul trouble. As long as we don't give them open 3's we should win a mathematical equation.
