    Am I reaching a bit? Maybe.
    Do I care? Nope.
    Of course that OKC team had two other superstars but lets not forget the Spurs run that year in the playoffs and even before the playoffs started. Really hurts to not steal one in Oakland but the way we balled after many quote on quote experts predicted Golden State would just run us out is a bit too feel good about. Needless to say this shi ain't over.

    This Rockets squad never lost 3 straight this season. And They sure know how to win 3 straight in the playoffs. Ask the Clippers.

    I see us winning the next 3. Game 6 will the toughest since it is close out game.

    You meant just: "experts"

    I keep seeing this stat but nobody directly linking TWO of the FOUR times it has happened, it was the Rockets franchising accomplishing this feat.

    Am I reading that right, the Rockets have two of the teams to come back from 0-2? Why is this not being publicized more? Of course it's two completely different teams and time periods, but still. Maybe they'll start harping on it more if we win games three and four.

    We need someone to assume the role of James Harden off the bench: ie Josh Smith or Corey Brewer

    I see us winning the next 3 also, but... what are you trying to say with "close out game"? Please elaborate. I've heard this expression before but don't know what exactly is meant. :eek:

    if Harden continues to be Harden and both Brewer and Smith have good games, Rockets in 6. Mark it.

    After Rockets win the next 3, it will be an elimination game for the Warriors, or a closeout game for the Rockets. Those games are the hardest to win. :p

    Harden's dribbling and step-back (or step to the side) is so much more fluid now.

    Yes, it is not over, the rockets are playing well. Last series, lots of people did not give the rockets a chance after 1-3, I posted that the rockets had a good chance after the game 5 winning. We will see if we have a chance after the game 3.

    Its weird that we are down 0-2.

    I have no idea why I feel so confident that we still will win this series.
