    Clutchfans haters, whiners, and crybabies are out in full swing tonight. This is the most bipolar fan base in all of the NBA.

    It’s a 7 game series. You’re playing against an all-time great in LeBron who has talent around him. What else were you expecting?

    Most level-headed posters on this board have been telling you this would a tough series and likely will go the distance to 7 games.

    You deluded yourself after game 1, thinking the Rockets would make quick work of the Lakers as if somehow they are the Heat taking on that fraud Giannis. Nope, you’re up against LeBron and that man will not go down easily.

    This is a game of adjustment and Rockets will make some and come back to fight again in a couple of days. In all likelihood, this series will go the distance to 7, and then somebody is gonna have to make a heroic play like Harden’s block the last round.

    So chill out, take your anxiety medication, enjoy the playoffs, and have a little faith.

    Absolutely. Get

    Rivers productive

    House back

    Gordon to be better

    Don’t let Rondo to go off with his offense by atleast trying to put a hand up on his shots

    Rebound the ball better with pack boxing out on Davis

    pack the paint and stop or limit Lebrons dribble penetration

    I believe we can be right in game 4.

    100%!!

    I still think we'll take the series in 7. LBJ had a phenomenal game today, Harden was his usual self (which was pretty damn awesome) and Westbrook looks like he is getting back to his norm. Just need G1 and G2 Ego, House to come back and do his thing and we can even this series up in two days time. Would be a nice bonus for one or two of our bench/role players to have a bust out game (Rivers, care to drop one of those 40 point games?;))

    Believe!!

    I don't think this is going past game 5 personally now that the Lakers have it dialed in.

    We haven’t been hot from the 3 outside of a quarter.

    We are the underdog, but there’s still a punchers chance. Lebron played a nearly perfect half and Rondo had his best game in a decade... and we were in it until about 6 minutes left in the game.

    Want to be optimistic but...

    Lakers have shown ways of adjusting to combat our offense in multiple variety yet I haven't seen anything from MDA.

    Yeah, if Rondo keeps playing like 2009 Celtics Rondo in this playoffs, nobody is beating the Lakers...

    Gordon increases from 9 to 20
    House increase fro 0 to 15
    Rivers increases from 2 to 10

    Just gotta play the game and live with the results. We still have a chance, but still an underdog. Crazier **** has happened like the Raptors winning a championship last year.
