We need to turn the corner.
I am still strongly confident in this team.
I do not buy the bullshiit media narrative that a game 1 loss is the end of a series.
I don’t think it hurt us mentally.
I do believe this is as close to a must win as there is.
I got the rockets winning 117-109.
Let’s go #RedNation
The good news is the Rockets can't collectively play much worse offensively and the Warriors can't play much better.
CP3, Ariza, Tucker, and the bench must contribute in Game 2. And the defense has to be there all game long. It's fine if Durant is getting his, but you cannot leave their 3-point shooters open.
Treat this game like it's an elimination game because it is. Go down 0-2 and it's over. Win and you head to Oakland with a 1-1 split and only have to steal one at Oracle.
EDIT: Oh, and I forgot one other positive. The Foster Brothers crew will be nowhere in sight.
Raise your hand if you would like a "boring win."
I thought we played a very good 1st half in game 1...the Warriors were mainly in it because KD was hitting everything
however, things fell apart in the 3rd and we couldn’t recover..*河蟹* is the best 3rd quarter team in the league and outscored us 31-24 in the 3rd...it’s absolutely essential that we win that quarter
we also have to win the periods when both KD and Curry are out of the game
I’m gonna say it. This game thread needs more Arnold Schwarzenegger gifs.
If y’all think the Rockets are getting swept what are you doing here? We are winning tomorrow and we are taking one over there too.
Tonight the Warriors get destroyed by 20+
We will win Games 2 and 3, lose Game 4, win game 5, lose game 6 and we will win the series in game 7. Book it.
Frankly , MDA should not change the system. People here ( fans in general ) just don't understand a few things .
1) GS is godly defensively .
2) the defense is trying to prevent us from getting a good shot
3) we missed some good opportunities and it killed us .
When Luc , pj , and even James miss a shot at the rim ... it's a 4-5 point swing . We had too many of those . If guys can make their layups and attack more aggressively then we will be ok
Headed to the game....got my lucky rockets hat on
Who says Ariza isn’t important!?
Capela great defense against Durant. Ariza another fast break. Already 4 fast break points! Plus the steal.
great defense to start.. warriors sloppy and cocky... need to run up a huge lead on them
Ariza is the only role player all playoffs long that has consistently been there, you can tell he's won a ring.
EDIT: Capela is not a role player in my mind btw.
Loving the defense and hustle out there so far fellas.
See this is our style not too fast and not too slow just normal play. Now we need to make better decisions cause we should be up by 10. FEED CAPELA IF HE IS OPEN!!
Fat D Ego!
Splash Gordon again!
EG finally showing up.
Thank you for showing up EG and Ariza!
Luc... go get your shoulder fixed and come back when you're 100%!
Luc's night should be done. His shoulder's not right and he cant execute layups. Gimme RA if this is the alternative.
KEEP UP THE INTENSITY! LETS GO!!
Capela needs to get position!!!!
klay so explosive on drives
Let Klay dribble. If he takes a dribble, he is going to miss his shot 90% of the time!
Capela AND1! Rockets attacking much faster!
We're getting more stops and turnovers, able to run off of those.
We are getting into the action a little earlier in the shot clock though
Harden corner three!
The Super Team don't look so good right now!
Chris Paul's activity on defense has been amazing so far tonight.
Lol Kerr is like uhhh I have to coach now....but wait how?
Splash Tucker!Two corner threes in a row!
Kerr time out!
Tucker haters go home
CP3 has been point god tonight. Playing at classic CP3 pace tonight.
That’s rockets basketball. Not this 22 second dribbling.
These are the Rockets. More ball movement and good pace.
These David West minutes have been a big help for us
Stop letting Klay Shoot
Good god defense
team heard Jimmys phone calls
Ariza is money with the pump fake + one dribble + side step move.
LMAO ROCKETS LOOKING LIKE THE WARRIORS!! BALL SMOOVEMENT!
omg that ball movement was beautiful!
WHINE ALL NIGHT DURANT!
you will always be a biatch
MUST WIN THE 3RD QUARTER
Gotta push in the 3rd. Warriors will be coming all out.
Come out second half with the same intensity! Punch them in the mouth in the third!
Jesus if it wasn’t for Durant we would sweep these guys.
Offense needs a shot of adrenaline. Stop walking it up the court. Push it every time. You got plenty of rest until game 3. This game is the season.
THIS IS 6TH MAN OF THE YEAR EGO
Capela huge block and Gordon aggressive drive on Durant!
We won the 3rd quarter
Rockets won the 3rd by 2...great game so far
imagine what the score would be right now if KD wasn’t scoring like prime MJ
火箭第三节赢了两分，真的太出色了，想象一下如果杜兰特不是像满配乔丹一样地得分，现在比分会是怎么样。 Durant is a ball-stopping blackhole on offense right now. A proud Westbrook is sitting somewhere smiling.
It's crazy how CP3's 16pts 6asts feel more impactful than his 20+pts 10+ast in game 1.
EGo with the emergency flicker three
PERFECT decision by Harden there. I swear I thought he was gonna try a lazy lob to Capela instead of hitting PJ open in the corner. Awesome, awesome, awesome.
That's what I talking about baby.... Move the ball. Drive it to the goal. Rockets are playing good 'D' on Curry and Thompson. Purposely letting Durant get his.
Time for joe Johnson and joe chee.
why is harden still in the game?
Oh no, Zaza is in. Watch your landing, boys!
Time to take out the guys with Zaza in there. Seriously, take them out.
HE TRIED TO WALK UNDER HARDEN JUST THEN. MDA...TAKE HIM OUT!
GET HARDEN OUT OF THERE!! PUNK ASS KERR RELEASED HIS ZAZA!!!
Me when Harden takes a jumper in isolation against Zaza
Let’s do this same thing in California
PJ and Ariza won us this game. We will need them to keep it up.
Share the ball, move your bodies, speed up the pace, and EVERYONE can get in a rythmn, well done Rockets and particularly Harden.
Would you say they played better tonight because they weren’t as rusty from the extended rest?
I think that sometimes players (Harden) try to do too much - and he still learning that leadership thing where less is more - we need him to be spectacular, but he can save some energy by using more of his teamates earlier in the shot clock. This was EARLY season Rockets style.....wonderful to see.
You can tell Cp3 actively pushed the pace and made it a mission to start the offense early in the shot clock .
Some truly inspired basketball tonight. It's a crazy high performance level to expect, but that's what we need.
When tucker scores or plays aggressive we win. Game 3 in Utah we were going there 1-1 and Tucker started *河蟹* and we skipped to a 40 point lead. Tucker is a big key
Key to winning the series:
Curry looked exhausted and exposed having to play defense on Paul and Harden for a full game. He doesn't have the legs to hit those 30 footers or even his traditional quick threes.
Durant can have his 40 points. He doesn't run the offense like Curry who is very dangerous when he's free wheeling and spreading it around to Thompson and Green.
Keep attacking Curry on defense.
Ariza’s, Tucker, Gordon and the defense showed up big time tonight!
Ariza, Tucker and Gordon combined for 68 points tonight vs 24 in game 1... that’s freakin ridiculous.
Loved the pace that the Rockets played with tonight - they did what they’ve been doing all year tonight. Tough defense leading fast offense and then slowing it down at some points to mix it up when needed.
-We had a 14 point lead at halftime, and then won the 3rd quarter 31-29.
-We outscored GS 12-7 to start the 2nd quarter with KD off the floor. We were outscored 7-3 to start the 4th with KD off the floor, but it was ok because we still had a large cushion.
-After having 18 fastbreak points in game 1, GS had just 7. We did a great job of getting back. We also had 12 fastbreak points after having just 3 in game 1.
-The pace was faster, the ball moved more, and we didn’t rely on ISO nearly as much as we did in game 1. Curry on Harden or CP3 is still a great matchup for us and something we should continue to seek out. Curry might get a concussion the way CP3 been dropping him this series.
-Our role players stepped up big time. Ariza had 19, Tuck had 22, and Gordon had 27. After having just 21 bench points in game 1, we had 36 in game 2.
-We kept a body on Klay. He only got off 4 threes after shooting 15 of them in game 1. I don’t recall him having more than maybe 1 or 2 good looks. We continued to do a good job on Curry who was just 7-19 from the field and 1-8 from 3.
Great game tonight.
Mike: (on CP3) Every suggestion...I've heard he's tough on players. No he's not tough on players. He's coming from a good place. If you got a problem with Chris, you really gotta look in the mirror. He's not saying give me the ball or let me do it, I need to shoot more or I need my touches, I need more minutes. He's all about winning. If you can't handle that, look in the mirror real hard.
1 assist in 2 games for durant.
hero ball blackhole killing the warriors offense.
