    I know they're not defensive studs, but I really love the energy of this Bev-Brooks combo. Penetration, making shots, getting rebounds, etc. good stuff. I'll take only our 2nd 1st quarter lead of the series... and the last game we won. rock.

    AB is looking more like we remember him from the Laker series. I'll take that Brooks any day of the week. Looks like yet another solid pickup by Morey.

    DaDakota must be on cloud nine!

    Why does seem like Smith does not use his weight to push people around. Collison just took to rim without much resistance.

    Durant with 5 FTs already. 9 points on 2-4. Incredible. Durant on pace to have the exact same stat line as Game 4. Only 1 Rockets TO was the key to that quarter. Keep it up.

    I don't see enough Harden hate for this to truly be a game thread.

    Hopefully Lin is out for the rest of the playoffs. Thread is slow because LOFs aren't even watching the game cause they don't care about it.

    Who could've thought Brooks would be bringing 'veteran play' to this team when we signed him?

    1Q and we have the lead with Harden off to a good start, gotta keep this up with no lapses in defense.

    Gritty, we can play even better. Let's get Parsons going. How about Delfino raining some threes? Good defense for the most part.

    As usual, if we keep on hitting 42% of our 3s we win, anything less we lose...

    Good start to the game...just wish the refs would stop calling fouls for every KD drive. Hope they keep shooting as hot and very good Harden not too selfish but enough shots.

    I think Brooks will be huge for us next year no matter what happens. Always feel that his signing was more about next season than this one.

    its always a solid quarter when we play TEAMBALL...we must secure the win before the stretch otherwise isobeardball will burry us into the ground...
    God aint harden the most efficient when hes playing off the catch , playing like a team player waiting for game to come to him? THIS IS TRUE LEADERSHIP...NOT ISO****
