    I just want an efficient game and not high on turnovers. Predicting 20pts, 7 Rebs, 8 Ast

    I'm not trying to make it sound simple, because it hardly is. I'm just confused as to what happened. The first game we played them when we got Russ, we DESTROYED them when they trapped Harden, because of Westbrook. Harden got doubled, he gave it to WB around the free throw line and he attacked quickly. Now Harden is getting doubled, and Westbrook is in the corner at the 3 point line. I'm just confused as to what changed from them to now.

    As long as he limits turnovers and threes, I am ok with it.

    Westbrook being injured does make a difference. Plus he seems to have lost his handles.

    I don't know how else to explain how poor he has been playing.

    That's tough to watch. Brodie picks up his 5th and the Rockets are up 89-87 (with the ball assuming he doesn't lose it) and go on to get outscored by 10 from then on to lose 109-117. The video shows 8 points in a row scored on him after he gets his 5th foul and the Lakers started hunting him on D. Hope he bounces back big time while not trying to do too much (play hero ball) in G3.

    honestly i feel completely fine for the game today and think westbrook will be fine. I am normally anxious about any playoff game but eerily calm today.

    Another garbage playoff game from a garbage playoff performer. Hope for mediocrity and the Rockets might pull off a W with that.

    I want to point out that, we lose a lot of rebounds due to no center. That means we have less shooting chances that opponent. If the 3 points does not work and westbrooks shoots a lot even he can score it. The final result is that we will lose the matches. That is why we need to bench westbrooks especially Houston needs to come back. 3 points are the only way to save the match but it must ensure that it is not shooted by westbrooks.
