    Good point, I wonder how many millions of dollars are lost because of sweeps? 4 vs. 7 games, it has to be quite substantial. Especially with this match up.

    $2.5-3.5 million per game for the home team is the number I've seen.


    These games might even be pushing into $4M with this level of hype.

    have a pretty good feeling Green or Gordon are going to go off in this game and also Tucker is finally going to hit his threes.

    With near-record viewership for Game 1, you would think they would want to
    prolong it as long as possible, right?

    Rockets win by Double digits, Capela has double double, Harden will score under 30 pts, but will get everybody else involved. Warriors will go back to Oakland shook.

    Harden <30 and us winning by double digits vs the GSW will never happen.

    Not even close to as hyped for this game as game 1 and I imagine the same is true for most of the people who tuned into game 1. Even if the Rockets win this one the series is still the Warriors to lose. I guess there could be some bizarre situation that could play out and give the Rockets a chance, but it wouldn't be the same to have a thing like that happen and advance. Either way, I'll be far more relaxed watching tonight.

    The Rockets will squeak by tonight for their only series win. I expect us to get smoked each game at GS.

    Can't say you're being farfetched.

    Will Game 5 be close ?

    You never want to bet against Vegas. That’s where the referee comes to work.
