    The bench makes their open 3s and we are in it in the 4th. It was always going to be an uphill battle but we really need gordan and luc to be positives or else we dont even have a shot at pusing it to 6.

    The entire difference is on missed layups and FTs, so yes.

    Good thing, Rockets rarely ever lose back to back games, usually, the role players step up big time in rebound games.

    It's not about the team losing, it's about the response to them losing.

    People underestimate the perimeter defense GSW has.

    Too many turnovers and not enough defense.

    Welcome to Houston Lebron James.

    Jesus if that’s the narrative y’all are gonna run with have at it but that sure as F@CK isn’t the reason we lost this game. GSW is better than us, that’s why they’re favored to win the series. We need a much MUCH stronger performance from every player not named Harden if we’re gonna have any chance at all.

    That Adelman offense wasn’t as good as this one and we had great passers on that team. Scola, Hayes, Battier, Dragic. All good passers

    When I saw the Tony Brothers assignment and when I couldn't find the game to record on the TNT uverse schedule, it was just all a bad sign..

    James Harden was the only player to show up. We need more from Cp3 and the role players. Capela needs to get involved. Heavy Iso won't work, its cool to do it sometimes. But spamming it every offensive trip isn't smart. Move around, set off ball screens or something.

    Need to take your Homer goggles off man. The refs were favoring us much of this game. Sure they missed some calls, but we got a lot of calls too. We didn’t lose this cuz of the refs.

    Our problem was Durant is literally unstoppable. He made the most impossible shots.

    Do the Warriors & NBA really enjoy having no competition in the league? The next 3 years should be a snoozefest.
