    We wasted one of the best half by Harden by leaving them wide open

    Capela is unbelievable defensively. There’s probably less than 5 players who could have recovered like that on Curry and gotten the block. And then picked his pocket a minute later. Clint keeps getting better.

    I hope he gets help, but he did everything he could to get the Rockets back in the game.

    If Rockets win the game it will be because Harden won the game..

    Other than few brain farts, this is the best defense I have seen anyone play against GSW.

    Defensive game plan is outstanding

    Tough half is ahead .Third quarter is critical and we can't come out flat and need a lot of energy.

    I got a blood pressure monitor here, and water, and this lavender oil mist to chill me out. Been eating a lot of vegetables lately too.

    You can do it. I believe in you.

    Warriors strategy of letting James score and not pass is paying off.

    If GSW comes back to earth then Hou is winning this game.

    It wasn't a waste. Harden's efforts tied this game.

    Nick young is killing us once again. How does he keep playing the best ball of his life against the rockets man...

    All of our shots are difficult and guarded; all of their shots (minus KD'S isos) are easy and wide open. This is not sustainable. We have to move the ball and stop iso ball and 24 second shot clock violations. grrrrr.
