    GS doesn't have "trap" games. Their mentality and approach is special. It's why they are going to break the bulls record.

    The Rockets are going to hang with them early - hitting some 3s, which they can't sustain because of the way the roster was built with inconsistent players....GS will start to pull away in the 2nd quarter, and by the middle of the 3rd, it will be a blowout for the Warriors.

    A win against a full strength GSW would buoy this team till the start of the playoffs

    A loss wouldn't affect anything about the group or season



    The team will come out trying I think, but won't amount to much

    Excited to see how we get shutdown on defense but I hope Monstatrezz gets a chance vs Draymond. Hes a good matchup and can earn some minutes from Jones

    everyone assumes that we get blown out by GSW bc they just beat us from deep...ACTUALLY its because we give a crap ton of layups at the rim...and are extremely poor helping Dwight. We get destroyed in the paint...on a team with Dwight, that really should NOT happen.

    If the Rockets are hitting their shots, they have a chance to keep up...If not a 20-30 point smashing is more than likely.

    I just want to see these guys play elite level defense...JUST ONCE. The Rockets have the length and talent to be able to compete on that side of the ball, but they have not really done it for a complete game this entire season.

    Rooting for our boys, but GSW is on another level. Take comfort in knowing that only 4 teams have beat them this year. Oh and they are undefeated at home for more than a year.
