    I’m so proud of our Houston Rockets. This win will give a huge impetus to go forward.
    We’re playing like a real contender.

    Go Houston Rockets!

    On the one hand, yeah, this whole Giannis-Beard "feud" is kind of overhyped and ridiculous. On the other hand, I kind of love that ESPN is stoking it with that article, and with reporters asking all these Harden/Giannis questions after the game -- the more we see of this Bucks-Rockets "feud" narrative, the more likely the NBA will see it as an acceptable Finals alternative (and the refs will follow along). I'm not saying the NBA would prefer us in the Finals over the Lakers or Clippers, but surely we're a much more attractive option for the NBA than anyone else in the West, right?

    I'm not normally the conspiratorial type, but the refs' calls -- and non-calls -- in key situations in the 2018 WCF (and the 2002 WCF for that matter) make me think that it's at least a factor in playoff officiating.

    That was awesome and Giannis travelled, but it's okay. I really wonder how Giannis would do - just like with Harden - in the hand check era where physicality wasn't punished like this. I am impressed by his speed, but other than that I don't really see a clear MVP in Giannis his game.

    Reporter: How difficult it was to defend Giannis Antetokoumpo?

    Harden: Next question

    That is the only thing to say, because it’s the truth.

    He is a Houston Rockets hater and an amateur reporter/ “ analyst “. He probably gets cigars from Mark Cuban.
