    The Rockets playing defense is just a step below sex on the enjoyment scale

    Eric Gordon +23 Leads the Rockets.

    Chris Paul -36 Leads the Thunder.

    Player of the game has to be House. He led that sequence with his defense and offense, even creating for others. Score went from 80-80 to 94-80.

    Also, credit for a solid game for Eric Gordon. Missed all his 3's, but great contributions on defense and offense.

    Damn Chris Paul really is washed.

    glad we didn’t get fooled by his regular season play.

    Gordon + Harden = 2-21 from 3. And we still won by 13?

    You love to see it. Normally, when Harden has a bad game, the Rockets lose.

    Probably the best Undersized rebounding game ive seen.

    We fought so hard on the glass and that was a huge key.

    I love it when a close game turns into a boring win. This team is locked in. Go Rockets!

    I ignore @Reeko's prognostications. It's better for my sanity and cuts down on my post count.

    Pround of the bench that made that early 4th quarter run! One of the greatest stretches in playoffs.
