    Yep, so far, so good.

    I'm kinda nervous. Losing two home games to the Clips kind of keeps me on the edge a little bit for this series. We haven't exactly been consistent this year.

    Well, our lack of consistency has been pretty consistent, I guess...

    Fuck. Too many f*cking turnovers. 13 in the first half is ridiculous.

    One of my favorite playoff past times is watching Rockets fans go nuts about refs

    We got away with a couple in the first half but that last one, no way was that a foul and we had plenty of bad whistles.

    I did not think we would win this game so I am stoked that we did. We played great defense but they also missed a lot of shots. We need to play better in the next one. The turnovers were brutal.

    Hey fellas, just peaking in!

    One observation.. the Rockets are free throw/foul hunters. They live or die by the 3. And they also live or die by the whistle. And that cost them the game today. A lot of teams do. We’ve seen the Warriors fall victim of themselves. Regardless, you can’t keep that mindset in the postseason. Especially in a series like this.

    The Warriors handed it on a silver platter for them with the turnovers. But Houston was so concerned about the refs.

    As a good friend of mine once told me, “Any excuse will do.”

    XBay sighting!!! How you doing, mate?!?!?!

    Turnovers killed us. 26 is way too much, and a few of them were simply stupid. That's the only reason the game was close in the final minutes. I'm just saying that our defense was pretty good and, the way KD was carrying us, it was a game that shouldn't have been so close. In this game, the turnovers kept Houston in the game.

    xbay!!! Good to hear from you Ray, I hope your life is good and don't be such a stranger. Everything you said about the Rockets is spot on!

    It was such a close game, fun to watch, but also really annoying watching both teams bitch at the refs every time a foul is called or not called. Sure, Houston is the worst culprit of this, but the Warriors do it way too much as well. Shut up and play basketball!

    GREAT to hear from the legendary XBay!!!

    And yes, right on. The Rockets are more concerned with drawing a foul than they are making the shot. I can't stand the way they play. All isolation basketball and trying to "trick" the refs. It is not basketball.

    One thing that should not be neglected in all the controversy is how fucking tough Klay Thompson is. By all accounts, his ankle was/is really bad. That dude just does not miss games. STUD!!!

    I am going to add another... Draymond fucking Green. My lord was he good defensively. It is so easy to take what he does for granted. He completely took away the lob game from the Rockets. They only got 10 shots around the rim the entire game largely because of Green's defense. He was seemingly in two places at the same time. He is playing as well as he ever has right now. The weight loss has been huge. Gobert may be the defensive player of the year but the Rockets carved him up. Green's impact on the defensive end last night was unreal!!!

    I was reading something online where Houston did a study on how many points they missed out on due to missed foul calls. All i can say is thats a very HOUSTON thing to do. So ridiculous.. and just validates that they are looking for thr whistle to make their big plays.

    Draymond played amazing yesterday. And he's been playing really well as of late. Couldn't be happier about it.

    And this doesn't get in conflict with my previous post about preferring KD over him. If there's someone that wants to keep Draymond over KD, they haven't watched a basketball game in their entire lives or are part of Draymond's family.

    But fair is fair, and Draymond is playing really well right now.
