    Meh, that was pretty good effort. OKC blows out any team playing like that. We fought. I like it.

    Westbrick tried so hard to mail the game to Rox and Harden refused to take it. That were your two MVPs. LOL

    Hopefully they learn their lesson that you cant come out half assed in playoffs. Now its a series because they were lazy.

    It took taj going crazy and Roberson and grant making 3's to win. It's not going to happen again

    The Rockets need to stop giving up 60+ points to OKC in the 1st half. That just can't be happening in a playoff game.

    Also, can our shooters please show up just once??

    It's ok. They gave us their best , 55% and 47% from 3 and yet we were inches away from the win. I'll take it.

    Welll played Rockets. Good game.

    2 schools of thought. Ice the game from 3 or play for the draw and hope momentum carries you in overtime?

    I'm okay with this. I was actually expecting for us to get blown out tonight especially after that first quarter. On to the next one, boys!

    On one hand it's our identity to shoot the three but I felt like James could have gotten a better percentage shot by driving it in.

    I don't like Harden taking those last two 3's. That's not your game. Drive to the basket.

    Good no timeout call, but Harden could have gotten closer and the Rockets were just standing around.
