    I’m not sure what I was expecting, but a 30 point blowout wasn’t it. What a great way to start off a day in the Far East!!

    One. More. Game.

    He let harden rest. 7 assists and no turnovers. More than enough to dust off the thunder

    Great win but jobs not done. Harden is by far the best player in this series and tonight he showed why. If Eric and Covington play like this from here on the world is this teams oyster

    I felt every game in the series should be like this game. Let's focus and close them out.

    Incredible bounce back performance by James. Thrilled to see Covington getting his shot back, hopefully. Fantastic adjustments by the coaching staff, too. OKC didn't know what to do tonight.

    I can’t remember either. Not by 34 points. That’s a BIG blowout. It should have closed the series, but that’s crying over spilled milk. Now we have to beat them one more time. Beat them the next game and put them in the rearview mirror until next season.

    @Reeko you know what to do! I don't want to see you in another game thread for the rest of the playoffs. No reeko posts and Rockets have the biggest playoff margin of victory, Harden destroys Dort's defense, Roco best game of the playoffs, EG becomes a huge bully.

    do it for the culture.

    Lockdown defense in 3 of the 4 quarters.

    Kept them under 20 points each quarter except for 2nd.

    And Harden doing Harden things.

    RoCo 2nd leading scorer with 22. Dropped 5 treys tonight.

    EGo driving to rim at will, 20 points.

    39% from 3.

    12 steals.

    Good day to be a Rockets fan.

    2 is greater than 3

    here are couple of golden rules for mda harden morey and gordon

    1. only when you have tried driving several times during a possession you should go for an open 3

    2. if the team is cold from 3(say they miss 3 times in a row) you dont shoot another 3 before first scoring 3 times on layups
