    It is kind of easy saying this, but if the Rockets made their layups in game 3, they probably would have won going away.

    It put the Warriors in transition. The defense in the half court was good. Transition is the problem. They just need to make layups and they can win this series.

    People can focus on Curry going off in the third all they want, but when the game was close, he was not a factor.

    But does that hex only work if the player actually watches the video? Sort of like The Ring?

    If we play our own game, we can win. I like to see some adjustments by MDA, try to throw something at the Warriors you haven’t done before. I believe we can do things differently, but not sure we will.

    What we definitely cannot do is go at Steph at all costs, let our shots dictate our defense, look for fouls, get sloppy and turn it over, play soft and miss layups. We need Harden and CP3 to lead, it’s their time to show they are great.

    I believe there’s a chance, as long as we keep the game close for most of it I’m happy though. Warriors are just better, we know it, Rockets know it and Warriors know it. We have to play great defense to have a chance but need Harden’s 2015 playoffs Oakland version.

    We haven’t seen that Harden yet against this version of the Warriors and we need that guy! That’s why I’m hopeful. We also need a good fight and close game, this year it just does not feel competitive with all these blowouts.

    One last thing, does everybody feel MDA might not have it in him to make the adjustments or at least push the right buttons to get these guys back on track?

    Capela needs to be a factor.

    We cannot continue to have CP as our leading rebounder while draymond is out there getting 17 boards

    We should be focused and ready:
    Egawd going off like the 6th man of the year, CP3 in pointGawd mode, Beard MVP, and Capela holding it down!
