    I think it’s the exact opposite. He’s a very capable defender, he doesn’t try.... and that end of the half where he didn’t switch??? Wtf is he doing

    Harden, Paul and Capela are looking great. Everyone else? D-. Someone else is going to have to start hitting shots and making plays tonight if they're going to win this game.

    We're shooting 47%. They're shooting 55%. If the Warriors cool off just a little bit, we can pull this one out.

    Green starting the 2nd half with 3 fouls one being a tech. Attack Dray.

    Barkley is right. Warriors score easy and the Rockets score difficult.

    Win the turnover battle and someone find the real Eric Gordon please!!!!

    --- we've been taking way too long to start the offense in the halfcourt
    --- green and ryno were atrocious on D
    --- luc being scared to dunk cost us 2 easy buckets
    --- luc needs to stay the F in front of KD and make him shoot from farther out
    --- harden is not getting the calls on his drives as we expected with tony brothers in the house
    --- pringles needs to get up off that chair and call plays and work the refs
    --- ego is getting traded this summer for sure if he doesn't get out of this funk

    Charles is right this time. James needs to go to his moves quicker.

    He also played KD well for one possession..

    Someone made a thread about Capela being the only hope against KD.. I'm starting to believe.

    We should've have at least a 5 point lead by now.

    Shaq: I've never seen that before.

    Clearly you haven't watched the Rockets all season long.

    Whats insane about Clint is that he moves his feet like a guard and has the length of a center. Incredible tools to be an elite defender and he’s well on his way!

    Cp3 needs to throw the lob to Capela. I don't understand why he doesn't do it when he was a lob city maestro with the Clippers. He's been playing real timid on offense so far.

    It's a tie game and Rockets bench being outscored by 8. That's the difference. Our bench should be killing them. When we had CP3 + the bench in, I counted 3 or 4 blown layups. Atmosphere is crazy in here, at least.

    The TNT guys are hilarious right now with the Rocket hate.

    You’d think we are down 20 based off this half time show

    Are they seriously acting like Golden State wasn't just giving it to Durant every time down? Why are they acting like it's just mind blowingly different?
