    I had the game on, but barely watched it. Harden will NEVER win a ship. CP3 will NEVER win a ship. MDA will NEVER win a ship.

    James Harden is a 3rd option in the playoffs, he does not have killer instinct to kill the defenders.

    Paul was the only one who came to play consistently. The ironic thing is that this Warriors team will break up over the summer and the Rockets will win the title and there will a stupid asterisk next to it. You take the title if it comes but man. This is how a superstar steps up when their fellow superstar goes down.

    0 in the first have 33 in the second steph has his flaws but damn he know how to close. Harden is great and we wouldn’t be here without him BUT he not closing a damn thang in the playoffs. Steph hit threes and layups harden would have kept shooting threes

    Think this game turned on that 3v1 where Green inexplicably drove for a weird off balance mid range shot. Had a chance up 5 to get a good look and really create some space, and dumbass Green f’d it up. To put this on Harden is bananas, dude played some of the best defense I’ve seen - Harden/CP & Klay/Curry even, but the role players for the Warriors just killed us all night.

    For all the talk of depth, we couldn’t play House, Green, Faried, or really Capela all series. Weak.

    This game was lost in the very first few minutes of the game. The Warriors looked lackadaisical and like they weren't expecting to win and the Rockets let them hang around with careless turnovers and nonexistent rebounding. It's the basketball definition of playing with fire - you let a team like the Warriors hang around, they will punish you for it in the end. Play to win, don't expect the other team to roll over for you.

    This team has been choking all year. That’s the reason they were in this position. This was just a continuation. The team constructed as is will not win a championship.

    33-17 in bench points. That's the game.

    MDA's short rotations do not work.

    I'm gobsmacked that he stuck with that and gobsmacked that he was allowed to do it again. Has it ever been successful for him?

    **** Mike D’Antoni!?!?

    Did Shumpert even play in the 4th quarter? Curry going nuts and our defender with the most experience guarding him is on the pine


    F.U.C.K D’ANTONI!!!!

    No Cousins - No Durant and yet GS eliminates Houston. This was their best shot at getting to the WCF and now it's gone. Expect more of the same next year as Morey and MDA won't change what they are doing.

    That's a closer. Harden called himself a closer earlier in the playoffs but when the chips were down Curry closed out the last two games and Harden completely disappeared.

    If MDA were on the hot seat before, his ass must be on fire right now. He was plain out-coached.

    This is what they are and now with the money tied up in 3 players we have no cap room to get better.

    Unreal. They were monsters in the regular season and D'Antoni would not play them. Meanwhile Kerr emptied his bench and it paid dividends.

    At this point trade Capela and whoever else for AD and go with that, I love you Rockets but we have to blow this team up and figure something out.
