    These threads always die out and it sucks. 2 hour basketball talk, when people clog the timeline saying they're worthless and all other kinds of stuff all the time. But, alas, it's not my place.

    CP3 needs to run more P n R with Capela if they want to stand a chance. Harden went to him a lot tonight and it led to a lot of easy Oops.

    eric gordon also has to be better. i hate to say it, but he's been terrible for most of the playoffs for the Rockets

    ryan anderson has been invisible forever for houston

    and gerald green has to be better on defense in Game 2 than he was tonight in Game 1

    Harden did have a few turnovers late, but he hustled all game and his shooting numbers were good

    he needs more help the rest of the series

    nah i'm not in this series. i knew GSW would be tough as hell to beat, but i was hoping Rockets would somehow win both home games to start. the series isn't over yet. just have to take Game 2 at all costs now and then hopefully take 1-2 in Oakland :/

    yeah I know but if they want us to move the sports talk, this can be at least used for during games and it will be good


    Trevor Ariza really let the rockets down tonight. He picked up 5 fouls early in the 3rd and changed the entire game plan for houston. Before that, it was a really close game and houston was on a really nice run to send it into halftime. They looked like the better team.

    I still like the rockets chances to win game 2 if they play smart next game.

    This is going to be the easiest title the Warriors will ever win, nobody in their path is a serious threat to them this year

    And the worst part about it? All of their players are taking paycuts to do this even longer.

    The one thing that would give me hope if I was a Rockets fan is that Barkley agrees that it'll be really easy for the Warriors and Barkley seems to be wrong about his predictions every damn time
