Narrative after game 1: "Rockets no match for Warriors"

Narrative after game 2: "Warriors have met their match"


I think Marv Albert was giving game 3 to the Rockets considering how bad the Warriors were last night. And with that he meant they regained home court.

I'm gonna side on the probability ol' Marv isn't as sharp as he used to be... (but who is, right?)

Yeah. I want the Dubs to prevail but now we got something worth watching. Rockets "adjusted" big time and had a great shooting night. dubs shifted down into a lower gear, which I hoped was behind us. I guess they'll get all motivated again for home play. Watching effort like that makes me wonder why Coach Kerr doesn't go ahead and bring in other bench guys just to shake things up. I truly believe JaVale could shake things up a little but I'm just a fan so....

+1. As an NBA fan, I'm glad we'll at least get a game 5 in this series. A short, one-sided series would have been a disappointment (ahem, LeBron!).

Maybe itís a match up thing but with the Death Lineup even with Looney, the Rockets have an open lane as warriors have guys on the floor that are quick to guard the 3 but not the lane.

If you think about it, Rockets have a perfect lineup to beat a warriors team. Two guards in cp3 and Harden that can take anyone off the dribble and either get a bucket or a foul and their teammates are waiting in the 3pt line.

Warriors pass and pass and shoot or cut. They donít go to the rim much looking for contact. That is a large part of Rockets game. I personally hate that type of ball because the scorer isnít looking to make a bucket. Also, Hardenís step back is usually a travel but itís never called cuz itís such a small jump after he gather and steps. But itís enough to get a shot off.

I wonder if Javale or Zaza would work for game 3. Clog the lane.

That one play, in which I think Ariza literally jogged free to the basket for a dunk, was........awesome!

So much possible rope-a-dope. Maybe Houston did it to Dubs in game one. Maybe Dubs do it to us fans, period. I know I don't know enough to have the ability to understand what is going on, just ponder what it seems..

I was mystified by the sloppy opening turnovers after the Game 1 sharpness. It seemed like they shifted down to a lower gear thinking they could cruise through that game only to get their asses kicked. And Kerr was wistful about it "it's what they do."Sometimes, my shoe comes untied and I'm too lazy to bend over so I walk a bit and chance it. That's what the turnovers reminded me of.

I expect a sharp retort at Oracle. Who knows, but the chance to smother and humiliate Houston is past. They are in it now. But I would imagine that Houston fans also feel stumped about Game One. My only solace is that I can't imagine Houston having that sharp a shooting game at Oracle. They were hitting everything while only KD was hitting for the Dubs. The scoring stats were some kind of season low for the usual all-stars besides KD.

This, exactly.

The chances that Curry/Klay go 3-12 from three AND Eric Gordon / PJ Tucker go 11-15 from three are, like, null.

It takes off nights from basically everybody plus Houston shooting lights out to get a W.

Gordon/Tucker made 7 more three pointers than their season averages. Steph/Klay made 4 LESS than theirs.

math.

Yeah, it had the momentum magic thing goin, then the Dubs just kind of stopped bothering to defend. They smelled the coffee and the loss.

LOL, you make it sound like the Rockets won by two in the last minute, rather than the starters being out early in the fourth quarter.

I agree it's unlikely the Rockets shoot again this well combined with the Warriors shooting that poorly. But, this was a dominating win, a near blowout. We don't need such an extreme combination for the Rockets to win.

No, i'm saying that 2 role players (plus Ariza) all went off at the same time, and basically all of the Warriors besides KD had bad nights.

That's an obvious recipe for a blowout.
