    First!!!!!

    YEAH Buddy!!

    Rockets start off slow and only lead after one 33-21. We turn it on in the 2nd quarter and lead at the half 62-48. Warriors with their patented 3rd quarter run and close the gap, only down 11 at the end of the third 86-75. We blow the doors off in the 4th, Durant attempts a trade mid-game even going so far as to steal a fan's Thorpe jersey and attempt to sit on the Rocket's bench. Final

    Going to need to come out focus and have the fans engaged early, maybe play luc a few min to give some of our guys more rest.

    Come out with a 3-2 series lead.

    The Rockets are six games away from a championship. The closest they've been since 1997.

    1st page!!!

    I expect a hard fought game, but really hope they dont come out flat and try to inch and claw their way back. Attack on offense early and limit turnovers. On defense, play hard, smart, physical, disciplined on defense, and no 2nd chance points.

    Hopefully this is one of those games where we click offensively. Gonna need to bring the same type of defensive intensity we brought in Game 4, as hard as that will be. Warriors are gonna give us a good shot and come out like they did in Game 1, have to be ready.

    Hopefully there's an opportunity for Moute or even Anderson out there, I don't feel confident going with just 7 guys the rest of the series.

    This series has been dictated by how much effort the Rockets give.

    I just hope the Rockets come out guns blazing.

    You can really create GSW doubt if you hit them hard from the start.

    Must win game. We can't keep up this "win every other game" thing because we lost the first game and there aren't enough games.

    The winner of this game wins the series. The Rockets haven't lost 2 in a row in over 4 1/2 months, so I don't see the Warriors winning both Games 6 and 7 if the Rockets hold serve tomorrow night.

    Silver and the league sure as hell better not send the Foster Brothers (s)crew to ref this game!

    They respond well after losses but come out, be the aggressor, no bullshittin' around, protect home court, get the W.

    Take it seriously, play hard, play with force, get up into them, all the cliche stuff you say after a loss that you didn't do,... Come out and do it instead of telling us after the loss.
