    A bit early to assume 3-7 is pretty much set. It will shuffle literally every day. Clips at 2 has still a ton of work to do if they were to drop and only need to win a few games to lock it up

    [Stay calm] Rockets sitting at .636 and the 4th seed!

    Rockets play no real contenders in their next 6 games!

    Literally jinxing it. Someone is probably telling Silver right now - "Westbrook and CP3 to vs each other? JUICY DRAMA."

    It works pretty well for TV, even if I know it is fake, er I mean "augmented."

    That is worrisome, actually. I feel like it takes a good opponent for the team to be properly motivated to play up to their potential.

    This would be amazing, if the clips can somehow fall to 4 and we would be in a bracket avoiding the LA teams until WCF

    Jazz are more experienced than the Mavs, but they can't handle our speed. It would be a toss up, but James wouldn't have to defend consistently against Mitchell, if we get the Mavs. The Thunder will be tough to beat. They are better than the Jazz and far better than the Mavs.

    I kinda feel sorry for Zdog, but he is obnoxious. I do like the idea of a Rockets diss track.:D. Where is Captain Jackass, by the way? :) He must have fainted after the Mavs defeat.

    So they will tank for nuggets. Meaning we are set now in fourth???? Rockets are one game behind Denver. And Denver ends the season with lakers clippers and Raptors.

    Captain Jackass has nothing to offer but unwatchable mental breakdowns.

    ZDog rap disses are pure joy to watch. Once he throws down the Wendy's Baconator diss, its game over

    That would be a dream. Even if we went undefeated the rest of the way the Clippers would need to slip a bit for us to catch them. A three game lead with only six games left is tough.

    That means we'll lose 4 of 6

    Feel like Denver is done for the year due to injuries.

    Just win and let the seedings fall where they may.

    Rockets fear no team, they are a team of destiny.

    Definitely want to draw the Jazz in the first round. Their best player is an unskilled big man which this style feasts against and Bogdanovic is out.

    Denver just won't lose.

    I wanted the 3 seed but I guess it doesn't matter. We will have to beat both LA teams regardless.

    I'd like to avoid OKC in the first round as well but whatever.
