    Y'all stop hating on Curry. He's friggin an amazing shooter. Harden is a better scorer. The Warriors are friggin good. I think we can still win this series and if we do, it will probably be the most hard fought series the Rockets have ever won.

    Back in the day, Clyde would have elbowed Steph in the t*** a few times per game. Try shooting 3's with a bruised breast.

    Here is the truth....the officiating is NOT going to change in Houston. More of the same.I would respect McHale more if he said the truth during post game press conference....we can't compete with a 5 on 8 scenario.

    That simple and easy over the back call the refs missed on Green with 1:40 left was HUGE. It gave Warriors 2 points instead of Jones going to the FT line. HUGE missed call in a tight and close game that should not happen.

    agreed.

    not hating on curry. he's very talented and works hard. its just the culture of the game has changed.

    and yes, we still have a fair chance. if we can get our defense to do better, that chance gets bigger. i dont see many tricks left in kerr's pockets.

    According to sportscenter only 4 teams have ever come back from 0-2 to win a conference finals. The rockets actually have a statistically more challenging thing to do now than last series (well maybe close since a lot less conference finals than all other 7 game series where a team could be down 3-1... But still a really hard thing to do).

    So so so so so want this to happen.

    Can anyone else step up. They are getting open looks.

    No, I meant to post it earlier but my phone went whack on me. I guess I did pist it after all. Sorry for the DP but I stand by it. I am eagerly awaiting the copy of this game to see all the free points they received and the points/possessions we lost because of the zebras. This game was played super close despite all of the calls that swung the momentum into their favor. We are the superior team. We just have to be exceptional to be able to overcome such obstacles. The Warriors are a heck of a team but we are better. We need to be better than them and the zebras and this might be Clutch City's tallest task since the free handchecks and Knicks of the '94 Finals. I believe our Rox can do it.

    Clutch City lives on.

    Well technically they can't. They'll have to go into heavy luxury tax territory to match whatever deal Green gets this offseason unless they find a team to take Lee off their hands and possibly another high-paid player(Iggy, maybe?).

    Then they have to re-sign Barnes in 2016. The cap does go up, so they'll be able to do that. But then they have to re-sign Curry, Bogut, and Iggy(assuming he isn't traded before then) in 2017.

    They're in a similar situation to the Thunder back in 2012. They can keep this core together if they want. But they'll have to pay an insane amount of money to do so.

    yup. as much as i dont like to blame a loss on the refs, that one was huge. in a way one can say that one cost us a game. but even there, it's not the first time.

    Livingston again shooting like he's the next Michael Jordan. Does this guy ever miss? He was 4-4 again in this game. One miss and we win.

    Livingston is the difference in both games. Give him credit for his performance.
