I was able to watch the second half of Cavs - Bulls yesterday. What a louzy game that was! Both teams couldn't make a single shot. I really wonder how some of them could get a millions $$ salary if they always play like that.
The Clippers game was too late for me though :-(

Tunic they don't always play like that, it was two exhausted, injury depleted teams playing too early. Day time games are hit or miss like that, some teams are warmed up some not.

Dat Buzzer beater though?

"The Clippers became the first team to win consecutive playoff games in a series by at least 25 points since the 2001 Los Angeles Lakers did against the San Antonio Spurs. "

When Clippers look like ShaKobe Lakers defense officially non existent. I mean, that was one of the single greatest teams EVER especially for doing that to a spurs team that became a comparable sort of dynasty.

I actually feel bad for rockets..

Rockets @ Clippers Game Four

 


The Rockets were epically defeated......TWICE!

Harden's stats look OK but he has come up big in 1 of 16 quarters in this series. Dwight Howard is 29 and gifted as he is, still sadly immature on court too often. Has anyone seen Josh Smith......it would be a serious upgrade to call him lousy this series!

The Rockets suffer from what Phil Jackson was tweeting about, teams that realy on 3 pt shooting and free throws do not win championships.

Even a team like the 94 Rockets, who shot more 3's than anyone, relied on the post game of Dream to exhaust the defenders and make space for 3's.

That game was the fucking most boring b-ball game I ever saw. and B-Ball is frankly mostly boring already...

We been trying to warn yall about that Morey Ball all season.. at least warriors can muster up some post up and on the block game sometimes.. meanwhile Rockets and Hawks getting exposed. The playoffs expose a team's fundamental weaknesses.. last year Heat's biggest weakness was their guards Wade/Chalmers/Cole who simply ran out of gas and were shooting like NBA 2k players in all red..
The year before that Heat exposed Spurs weakness, they cant hang against more athletic teams..
This year rockets over dependence on freethrows and generally soft defense got exposed. We will see about Warriors tonight.

Cavs exposed that Bulls offense usually sucks but more particularly how their d has slipped since previous seasons. Bulls exposed Blatt's shit coaching as their d pressured Cavs into boring isolation play which proved inefficient because of fatigue.

Clippers @ Rockets Game Five

The Houston Rockets NEVER lost three games in a row during the regular season......last nights victory kept this from happening in the post season.

CP3 & Griffin combined for 21-37 FG (57%), 52 points. Rest of Clips: 17-54 FG (31%), 51 points. Clippers were 9-35 on 3's in Game 5, the most they've missed in a game all season.....Rockets led by at least 12 points the entire second half.

Big Props to McHale for inserting Josh Smith into the starting lineup and putting him on Griffin. Not sure if it will work tomorrow night, I was just happy to see McHale shake something up.

James Harden wasn't feeling well all day, had IV in the afternoon, played a great game and had his first ever postseason triple double: 26 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists.

Rockets live to fight another day:

Not that it has any baring on the proceedings......in their Game Five victory, the Houston Rockets are the first team in NBA Post Season history to lose consecutive games by twenty or more points and then win a game by twenty or more points.

 


When facing elimination, the Rockets have never won a Game 6 on the road.

The Clippers have never reached the Conference Finals.

Sorry Bytor, Clippers got this in their pocket. Rockets need (a) a REAL coach with a real system and (b) a bit more depth.

However I would not be surprised to see Houston make the Conference Finals next season, really this year they could have but Clippers decided to weirdly show up.

Honestly, watching all the games, the Clippers appear to be the "team of destiny." in this series. More power to them. The Rockets are playing great ball, but not enough to beat the clippers in 7

damn, how long ago did the game end? I could have gotten up way early and watched at least the 2nd half. (it's 8AM here now)

I do hope the Clippers will make it through to the next round

Rockets @ Clippers Game Six

Flying dunks + spinning layups = 92-79 Clipper lead to start the 3rd period.
Less than ten minutes to play, Clippers were up 94-82.

 


Dwight Howard is the first player with 20 points / 20 rebounds in a road win when facing elimination since Shawn Kemp in 1997. This was the 6th 20-20 postseason game for Howard, his first as a Rocket......2nd most active player behind Tim Duncan's 10.

Before last night, the Rockets were 0-49 when starting the 4th quarter trailing by ten or more points.

Blake Griffin = zero 4th quarter points.
James Harden = did not play in the 4th quarter.

Trailing by 19 points with two minutes reaming in the third quarter to winning by 12 = 31 point turnaround.

Who let Matt Barnes raid the first-aid kit:
