    Have to get Howard going. Please drop it inside whenever we can't get a shot off and don't let Brewer and Ariza drive.

    Rockets need to slow the pace down to have chance.

    Maybe get the Dwight who had 10 straight double doubles before the ankle injury.

    This decision to run and gun against the warriors will do nothing but get them blown out again.

    And besides, at the rate the rockets miss 3s they just help jump start the warrios fast breaks

    Slow it down and make the extra pass

    That 2 on 1 should have been a layup not a 3 by ariza

    Put Harden in Post so he doesnt have to go 1 on 1 from the top of the key.

    When Howard has Harrison barnes pinned pass it to him. Dont stare and jack up 3.

    OK. Have to keep it cheap though because I'm cheap. $20 for the 20 points over/under.

    I must confess that I was not at all optimistic about this team's chances and here's why: this team is built around two (so-called) star players Harden & Howard. By all accounts, they (a) don't like each other and (b) don't want to play with each other. That being so, then how can anyone expect a team with that level of dysfunction to go out and compete (much less beat) a team the caliber of the Warriors? A team that finished 32 games ahead of the Rockets - a team that won 24 straight games and broke the single season record for wins. It doesn't take a fortune teller to realize that this incarnation of the Rockets is hopelessly out of its depth in this series even in the best of circumstances. And it's not just the Rockets - look at the results of the other games involving the 5th, 6th an 7th seeds and you will find losses of 32 points (Grizzlies), 20 points (Trailblazers) and 38 points (Dallas). The gap between the top and bottom teams in the West is that big.

    Keep Bev on Curry. He was doing a good job on him then JB took him out & put Terry on Curry smh. If I'm JB I'm playing Bev every time he steps in the game. I don't care if Bev is 0-25. No way I'm letting Steph Curry beat me

    If Curry doesn't play, then it would be nice if we could beat the rest of their team.

    And, then, go rub it in the GS fan faces to stymie some of their ridiculous obnoxiousness and arrogance.

    We'll still lose, but at least Brew will come off the bench as he should.
