    i’m not feeling good. it’s not over yet (if they lose Game 2 it really will be), but GSW is probably the best team since the Jordan’s Bulls. i thought Harden (besides a couple turnovers) was pretty good. the rest of the team needed to be better. eric gordon has been terrible, paul needed to be better, ariza needed to be better, ryan anderson is dead weight

    so i don’t know. Rockets need to try and dial something else up for the rest of the series. game 2 might as well be the end of the series if they lose

    Way more Capela. And Harden needs to give everything he has on defense, he wasn't good at all. If he doesn't have the energy then he needs to quit fucking around in the offseason and get in amazing shape so he doesn't run out of gas at the end.

    the irritating part is Harden has better on defense throughout the season. he has improved. i think his work ethic has improved, but i do agree it still needs to be a tad better

    i honestly don’t think Harden will ever be 100% committed. and that’s saying something to his talent level because even without 100% commitment to all areas of improving his game - he’s still going to win MVP

    it just feels like GSW right now is the dream team and every other team in the league cannot compete with them in a 7 game series

    it’s depressing. now who knows. Maybe Rockets will salvage Game 2. I hope so

    vegas has the line at Houston -2.

    i feel like that is begging for Rockets backers. i hate what gambling has done to me sometimes. because I desperately want the Rockets to win

    It feels like the lines have been way off all playoffs. Toronto -7 G1 against the Cavs, Philly -3.5 on the road G1 against the Celtics and they were favored (?) in every single game even down 3-1 which seems nuts, and maybe the Portland/New Orleans lines but I don't remember what they were. And these weren't "the other team happened to cover or win" kind of things, they were fundamental misunderstandings of the dynamics of the series and how they were going to play out.

    Let's hope that's not the case here and Houston wins. Or maybe the Celtics sweep the Cavs and then Houston gets LeBron in a sign-and-trade.

    you’re right. a lot of the lines have been way off. i wish i rode Boston before the playoffs started

    sports betting has made me overthink lines so many times. not just in basketball, but in other sports too.

    Boston is -1 tonight. i have a feeling Cavs play better (they can’t play worst than they did on Sunday), but my gut tells me Celtics win again.

    it wouldn’t suprise me if Cavs took both in Clev, but I’ve stopped doubting Boston

    i just can’t see Lebron being swept. i still think it’ll be a series at the end. not saying the Cavs will win still, but i still see Clev winning at least a couple. despite being a pretty poor team outside of LJ

    It was cool the first year because of the talent but now I'm ready to say it's no longer interesting. Having that many stars in one place when teams like Orlando and Phoenix don't even have 3 NBA starters makes the league a little stale compared to the NFL, where almost any fan base (outside of Cleveland) can have some hope every year because of the turnover. No one goes worst to first in a division in the NBA, but it happens all the time in the NFL. Hard cap vs. soft cap problems, I guess.

    Clev has the best player, but Boston is the true definition of an overall team

    I agree. I think NBA needs to do something. Teams like you said like Orlando and Phoenix have zero hope before, during or in the offseason. I don’t see how it’s good for the NBA overall, either. I guess Finals ratings have still been out of the roof the last few seasons with GSW v Clev with the starpower, but I became bored of it before last season.

    Why not want to draw interest out of more fanbases from across the league? The Phoenix’s, the Magic... the Kings (gasp)(well the Kings might always suck with their decision making). I know saying all this makes it hypocritical if Lebron comes to Houston in the offseason (which i honestly don’t see happening deep down).

    I rather Lebron not come to Houston because it’s what I disliked when Durant went to GS. The Warriors were already a championship team and then they got KD?

    NBA should look at the cap. And as much as I’ve disliked the NFL more and more the last few seasons... the variety from season to season is one of the reasons it is fun to still watch.
