  2. It's officially NBA Draft Week! Dave Hardisty and David Weiner discuss the options before the Houston Rockets as they approach the June 26th NBA Draft, holding the #3 pick and the #44 pick. Is it really down to Donovan Clingan and Reed Sheppard? The pair also discuss trade-down possibilities and whether Devin Carter could be intriguing to Ime Udoka. And are the Rockets a darkhorse for a Paul George trade?

How worried are you that Chris Paul is a choker

    ANYBODY STILL HAVE BOBBY BROWN'S NUMBER?

    But seriously folks, this thread - I mean, i have not seen more pearl clutching and fainting couch use since Eufemia Gray left polymath art critic John Ruskin for his protege, painter John Edward Millais in 1854.

    Starting drinking too early today, thought it said "

    Most important thing he provides he allows harden to be fresh in the 4th quarters to bring it home

    Not worried at all, OP. When Chris has a better game than Harden, someone will post the same goofy thing about James, ignoring his performance in game one.

    CP3 probably thought it was the 2nd round.

    Now that you mention it, that is a concern. I mean...all those ad campaigns.

    These Warriors even without Curry are a handful man. Their defensive intensity and their surefire shooting..

    Chris absolutely has to play his best ball in a series against them because it can't just be Harden.

    Exactly, Warriors are a young super team, quicker and better each day.

    incredible speed

    Absolute raising their bar in postseason, they know what's up.......last time Lebron beat them, he has absolutely dominated on both ends. I think that was without Beta Durant.

    Rockets are built to beat them but the Rox haven't been together this long and winning so much in postseason to claim they have a distinct advantage.
    They have a shot....that's the best you can hope for.

    If CP doesn't show up soon, he won't have the chance to play his best ball against the Warriors.

    YA THINK?!?!?!!

    Led by swyyguy and his mor---er, minions, no doubt: "I love the Rockets. Mostly. Kind of. But I do so very much hate James Harden. Is that wrong?"

    I trust Chris Paul but I am worried about a potential turnover in the backcourt in the clutch. We gotta be smart.

    He need to shoot his midrange and stop trying to feed Ariza for a 3.

    TMac with 27-7-7 and a block and an assist per game as a Rocket in the playoffs, and a 7:3 turnover ratio. Paul with 14-3-4 and a 4:6 ratio. Not good.

    Game 7 loss to Dallas in 05 TMac at 27-7-7, and 7:3.
    Next best player outside Yao: 7 points
    Bench points: 6

    Game 7 loss to Utah in 07, 29-5-13 and 3 blocks. 13:2.
    Next best player outside of Yao: 16 points
    Bench points: 10

    Game 6 loss to Utah in 08, 40-10-5, 5:1.
    Yao did not play; next best players: Scola (15) and Novak (8)
    Bench points: 21

    #mythbusters

    Tmac wasn't a choker.

    Paul has only played one game.

    Do better Clutchfans.

    No doubt. Chris needs help with either one, but he is a good defender.
    He should use his smarts and try to slow them down. If that's too hard, try and force them into foul trouble.
