    Second! I made sure not to post first since the last time I did we lost the game. That being said, get ready for the Rockets to be up to 2-0!

    My concern LA adjusts just like OKC did and again MDA doesn’t adjust to their adjustment and continues with plan A.

    As predicted the Rockets defense put the clamps down on the Lakers offense. It will continue to happen unless they find someone who can beat a defender off the dribble.

    Is OKC or Hou playing in the second round? He didn’t need to adjust. You won game 2 easy and choked game 3.

    Great game 1! Let’s keep that magic for game 2. Lakers will make adjustments an come out like gang busters. But we weather the storm an impose our will on them. Let’s get game 2

    I think the Lakers are going to get to the free throw line a lot this game. This was the first game in the playoffs where I didn't feel the Rockets were constantly in the bonus early.

    I think if the Rockets can withstand the early push and hit timely shots they should be able to keep it close and hopefully Harden and Westbrook will be able to close it out.

    Thunder defense was better than Laker defense at least in game 1. Besides Lebron and AD that team doesn’t have much else. If you can contain one of the two you will win.

    groundbreaking analysis huh youz guys!?

    i hope those Jonah ass Danny Downers and their miserable energy stays away!! Keep winning ROX for the sake of 5 star threads everywhere!

    oh yeah .. 13th!!!

    I think the Laker will look at the tape and figure out AD cannot be just a Galrinari, and Kuzma will probably play better. But their glaring weakness is their defense. Let's go.

    Laker's defense is not equipped to shut off Harden and having hard time keeping Westbrook and Gordon off the paint. I don't see they can fix that.

    Gotta come out with even more urgency than game 1. Keep them on their heels.
