On the net posivitive Rockets playing much better defense in this series than against Clippers or Mavs. Also we have the Michelob Ultra Version of James Harden.. more filling less floppimg. On the other hand its 0-2 which means Rockets are officially done.

There you go with another one of your predictions. Any basketball veteran knows a series isn't a series until a team loses a home game. Being a veteran, I'll make my first prediction......Golden State better win Game 3, because if they don't, it's going back to Oakland all tied up!

We'll just have to wait and see now won't we

I like that little snap you included, let me hook you up with some scouting..

Rockets have come back to win a series after dropping 0- 2 three times.. lost 17 times.. exactly four teams have come back in the Conference Finals after dropping the first two..

5 Points was the difference in Two Games at Oakland.

The Rockets needed James Harden to score 40 points to win.

Curry didn't think Harden was going to pass on final play. Curry said he, defense were "retreating." Did everything so Harden couldn't shoot.

 


There was a cutter open......

Per Elias, James Harden became just the 6th player to have 38+ points, 10+ rebounds and 9+ assists in a Conference Finals game......Jerry West, Oscar Robertson, Elgin Baylor, Lew Alcindor & Charles Barkley are the others.

James Harden was spectacular in isolation. He created space and used ball screens to find his shot. 7/8 on uncontested baskets.

Jeff Van Gundy on ESPN on James Harden: "We're looking at a creative genius on dribble penetration."

James Harden (Thunder) came back from down 2-0 in 2012 to get the the NBA finals......Beard has been here before!

Bogut (who played well compared to Game 1) on Curry vs. Harden: "I want to crack open a beer and get a courtside seat ... the two best basketball players in the world."

Per Elias......Curry 5/11 on 3FG is the 1st player EVER to hit 5+ 3FG in 4 consecutive NBA Playoff games.

Among the things Howard cited the Rockets need to correct - "out of bounds plays, knowing the coverages, knowing what they're trying to get."

Dwight Howard: 19 points, 17 rebounds, played over 40 minutes after Game One knee sprain......West Coast media ignorant for calling him soft!

Only FIVE players in the post-season have ever averaged the double double Dwight Howard is this year:

Hakeem Olajuwon
Time Duncan
Kevin Garnet
Charles Barkley
Shaq

The Rockets are up against not only the Warriors, but also against history. In NBA history, teams that go up 2-0 in a best-of-seven series have gone on to win 94 percent of the time. But let us not forget, that the Rockets have faced this kind of obstacle before. And won a championship! Houston is 2-13 in best-of-seven series when trailing 2-0. Both comebacks came during their title seasons (1994, 1995).

Come on bro, in what bizzaro world universe is THIS rockets team anywhere near close to the Dream era Rockets??

Dream bringing the rockets back from both 1-3, 0-2 TWICE, and being only 6th seed to win championship is precisely why it was an alltime great team... these rockets? How do they in any way even remotely compare?

You can call me juvenille, but you're the one with childishly unrealistic expectations

The Golden State Warriors had scored enough points (92) by the end of the 3rd Quarter to beat Houston last night.

Stephen Curry is having an NBA Postseason like we've never seen before.
 


Stephen Curry, Michael Jordan (May 31, 1993 vs NYK) are only players in Confrence Finals history to make 5 3s, score 40 pts, shoot 55% from field.

Steph Curry's ridiculous shot chart thru 3 games of WCF......100% from left corner.
 


Stephen Curry on building a 25pt lead at halftime: “We didn’t turn the ball over. That’s how you keep momentum on your side.”

Draymond Green's nine double-doubles this postseason is tied with Wilt Chamberlain for second-most in a single postseason by a Warrior.

Per Elias: Last nights win in Houston is also the Warriors' largest road playoff win since a 39-point victory on 4/6/48 at St. Louis.

Golden State had 60 boards to Rockets 39.

Prigioni didn't play in 2nd half of Game 2 or 3. Checked in late 1stQ, out in early 2ndQ in both - never went back into either game.

From what little I saw of the game, Jason Terry didn't even compete.

Curry boxing out Howard explains a alot.

 


James Harden averaged 33 points (shot 58.5 %), 10.5 rebounds, 9 assists, 3.5 steals in the first two games......last night: 17 pts(18.8 %), 3 rebounds, 4 assists.

James Harden: "They outworked us, they killed us on the glass. We were playing downhill, trying to catch up basically the entire game."

I was with the family last night over in Katy, Texas for a cousins graduation (from U of H) blowout at the No Label Brewing Co. The game was on, and I got to watch most of the first half......which sickened me! We ended up heading home then due to all the pending storms that were approaching.

The plan was to wake up this morning and watch the slaughter on the DVR. Instead, waking up to unrepresented flooding all over Southern Texas.

 


OH - and I'm totally waiting for the day Steph Curry finally comes out and tell us he's really Jesus and just wanted to hoop before the world ended.

I just thought Saturday Night / Sunday Morning flooding was unprecedented......looks to be much worse tonight, at least on my side of the State. Took me 45 minutes to reach work, and there was hail. Due to the weather, the satellite lost the game and I only saw one minute of the 4th Q.

FINALLY......Going Back To Cali!

OMG - tune in to Rockets post game via iHeart and all the discussion is about the flooding. Toyota Center has local news playing on the jumbotron, urging fans to shelter in place. Many reports / tweets referencing Tropicsl Storm Allison.....looks like it's all headed my direction.

0200 update: Dwight Howard along with other Rockets players, also stuck at the Toyota Center, entered the arena signing autographs and visiting with stranded fans......fans were still there at 3:00 AM.

The Golden State Warriors reporting that Curry did not receive X-rays, contradicting earlier reports......something not adding up = O U C H

 


Now thru Four Games:

Harden: 32 ppg, 8.3 rpg, 6.8 apg, 2.3 spg, 2.8 to/pg.
Curry: 32.5 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 5.5 apg, 1.3 spg, 2.8 to/pg.

Splash Brothers combine for 47 points last night......which is just two points more than the Rockets scored in the 1st Q.

James Harden became the first Rockets to score 45 points in a postseason game since Olajuwon (95)......and some mad that Harden went to the Drake concert the night before.

Speculation this morning that the NBA may raise Dwight Howard's, Flagrant 1 to a Flagrant 2 later today.

I doubt Rockets need this as billboard material:

LeBron James is the first player since the non-dynasty Celtic team of the 60's to play in FIVE straight NBA Finals.

 


Heard today on the radio that a member of the Atlanta Hawks who normally wore LeBron shoes during the regular season, but elected to wear some other shoe during the series with the Cavilers......that sure helped???

ESPN says Game 4 of West finals was most-watched game of these NBA playoffs, with 9.4 million viewers......most since 2003.

I bet the powers that be in Oklahoma never figured James Harden would reach 45 points in a playoff game before Kevin Durant or Russell Westbrook.

The 45 points Houston scored in the 1st Q of Game Four was more points than the Rockets scored in either half of Game Three.

I wonder how sore Curry is feeling today?
