    Tucker, Ariza, and Gordon all went off tonight, we're going to need their offense for the rest of the series. I think Tuck can reliably knock down those corner threes for the remainder of the series but I don't expect him to be a consistent double figure scorer, Ariza will be hot and cold but he needs to maintain this aggressiveness, and Gordon has to continue to this level of play-- we need him to be a 20 PPG scorer to win this series.

    The only disappointing player tonight was Clint Capela. They didn't involve him but he missed several free throws which is unacceptable. Concentrate big fella. Come to think of it, Moute was awful again. Welcome to the playoffs Eric Gordon.

    What a game man, loved the quick passes & movement by the whole team. Also I can say with absolute confidence no one in the league gets away from more cheap shots & b****ing to refs than Draymond Green's ol swamp troll lookin ass

    Cp3 needs to run the offense, I love harden but the iso won't work against those ****ers and he showed his ability of playing off the ball

    The main reason this game excited me was because I can see the Rockets playing like this going forward.

    It wasn't only a big win because people were hitting impossible shots (though EGo had one of those, too)

    This type of defensive intensity and focus is something the Rockets are consistently capable of doing, and if they play like this for the next couple of games, I know for a fact that they'll be in a good position this series.

    I see the Warriors acting nonchalant on the bench, but that's just an act. They want to seem like this loss is no big deal, and that they only got blown out because "they didn't care enough", and certain broadcasters who shall not be named also push this narrative. But if I were a Warriors fan, this would have shook me a little bit.

    This win wasn't out of character for the Rox, it's just how they respond to adversity...and the Warriors better be ready for the red avalanche

    Glad to hear that. Did the WORRIERS look like they wanted to win game 2?

    Also I’m really hoping Capela can be effective against them

    He keeps resorting to the McHale crap. I think he will come back in game 3 and do that crap.

    I am going to hang the Rockets flag around Ireland for Game 3, to keep the Luck of the Irish spirit!! The sun is about to rise soon, but the time difference was worth it, even if it was just watching play by play stats!!
    Go Rockets!!
