I was thinking this however, that why itís a series of 7 games. Fault to Rockets not winning one of the first 2 games. You gotta bear a team 4 times. Game 6 looks doubtful for Rockets. Game 7 I honestly feel cp3 will be out or very limited. Baring Warriors win tomorrow.

Last night, for the first half, KD played the Rockets-style game and charged the paint for fouls. Fine, if that's what it takes but it wasn't pretty. But to tell him to pass it off and trust, who, quin cook? Draymond? DWest? And he stopped charging that way, or maybe he got called, its a bit of a blur.

He looked distant and disengaged in second half.

What a weird turnabout. Harden seemed out of it, too, making the CP loss even more perilous for Rockets and fans..But in a way, he seemed repeatedly miffed that he didn't get his auto foul bit.

What is it about this particular set of millionaires? I have NO idea who wins next two games.

A part of me feels the Warriors don't deserve to win this series or Finals because they have been trying to phone it in this year and it pisses me off. They have finally gone to the brink of the brink of the brink, yet may still win.

On the other hand is the constant: what do I know anyway, just a fan, not much of a bball player at that....How can they not be affected by going to three Finals in a row? They actually DO know about conserving energy, they do know what its like to win 73 and lose the Finals.

Perceptions are such an odd things. Watching that game made me feel like neither team wanted to even be there anymore though obviously the Rockets are hungrier. All that money and fame ain't enough. I got this feeling over and over watching Durant, fantasizing him leaving the sport (or the Dubs) as nuts as that sounds...And Harden too, though he was moving pretty quickly trying to defend. I always get a low-energy vibe from Harden but he truly seemed out of it last night. At home! Go figger.

PS About CP. Thing is, I have been wondering who of the Rockets was going to get hurt anyway. It's kind of inevitable at the level and desperation of playoffs. Our guys are getting banged up and now one of them is too...
Warriors arenít used to playing close games or with pressure. Thatís my assumption with their late game failings. They get nervous and timid and then iso ball sets in. Then harden, cp3, or Gordon drive to the rim and get fouls. Happening last 2 games. Warriors miss, Rockets get a foul, stop clock and 2 free points. Rinse and repeat especially when Warriors in the 4th stop driving and take bad shots.

That layup curry tried to tie it was terrible. Off glass on the angle? They stopped setting screens and double screens. Then Quinn cook got scared.

Warriors need to drive more, stop clock and get rockets into foul trouble. Their assists have dropped too. Part is rockets defense and man on press ball.

All 3 times the players missed on his assist.

So KD iso the next possession and nails it.

Also Kerr kinda downplayed KD iso and said its never ever a bad idea to let KD post up in the after the game interview
Kd keeps getting guarded by cp3. In the 2nd half heís go to shoot over and a helper would come over and double Kd. They need to pass more early
In the clock. If the Kd post up is there great but too often itís happening early and warriors are standing around.

Weíll see what adjustments are made for game 6 and 7.

The thing is, KD shouldn't even be able to get guarded by cp3. He has almost a foot of height on him + his shot would be another few inches above that.

CP3 switch on KD should be buckets all night

Agreed. Hasn't KD done OK with CP on him? He's burned Capela, and pretty much everyone else.

hey your team is earning it for sure. they've pulled out the close games. they have an answer for the Ws runs. It'll be real tough to get the 4th game, even with cp3, but I think Houston has well-earned the respect they should be given. And if they win the series, there should be no excuses or asterisks.

Thank you sir. I've enjoyed the discussion.

I also think GSW has to be favored at this point, even though they have to sweep. Rockets missing a key player is just too much to overcome.

Having said that, the Rockets probably win tomorrow, lol....

I told my wife with 4-1/2 minutes left to turn it off. I just get frustrated with the high school caliber ball GS displays at times.
I think someone should explain target fixation to Draymond before he throws another pass. When he gets sloppy the whole team seems to follow.
I'm no expert but a crisp pass works better than a lob to cut down on turn overs.

Yeah, they were saying it on the radio especially given their playoff record where they won most games by over 13 points or some darn thing.

In the regular season, it seemed like any time it was that close, they just went ahead and lost the game, now that I think of it, no matter whether opposing team was high or low in the standings.

What happened to all that swagger? Bizarre. Oh well, just human beings after all.

Surprise me tomorrow.
