    We played much better offensively to end the half. I loved it.

    Just got to keep forcing them to take long contested two's.

    Rockets need to start Nene in the 2nd half. Capela isn't doing anything.

    Flip it to Root Sports so you don't have to hear Jalen sound like she struggling to read a TelePrompTer

    Harden still gots ways to go to catch up to Russ and Kawhi. Hope he comes through in the 2nd half.

    Well looked like crap mostly but only down 4. Need to play defense eventually.

    "Thunder played the game of their lives, they'll never play like that again all series!"

    Flashbacks to that dreadful Blazers series in 2014. Ugh.

    Just got to win this one and we get breathing room only having to win 1 of the next 3, two of the games at home.

    We can't defend and we can't shoot threes. Have to do one of those really well to win in the playoffs.

    westbrook, 3 straight tough jumpers with a hand in his face. serouisly, how many times has he done that all season? this feels like that portland series from 3 years ago. portland with one of the luckiest, can't miss a damn tough shot series i've ever seen. lillard was 50% on 3's that series, aldridge had howard and asik right in his face for 6 games and rarely got in the paint but couldn't miss anything. next series he shoots like 30%.

    this feels like that. 6/23 westbrook is normal in the playoffs. making 20 footers at will isn't westbrook. if it was he'd have a 50 point career playoff average because everyone has to concede that shot. just unbelievable hot shooting.

    What happened to the rockets? Died in the ass in the playoffs. Ryno has been very disappointing.

    We have no answer for this team on defense. None. Zero. Nada.

    Please start strong with energy in the 2nd half and stop turning the ball over. Go Rockets!

    That's 6 straight quarters of unsustainable shooting.

    How long are we going to keep saying this? Westbrook is on fire from midrange this game and he's probably going to keep making most of his attempts

    Tell me again why WB has to hit EVERY contested 20-footer?
