This game is going to be a war.

Houston plays much better at home, and OKC is reeling from the back to back losses and losing Westbrook.

I think this goes to game 7 for all the marbles. That's going to be a heck of a game.

I'm a huge JLin fan, but I have to admit that this version of the rockets looks far more in tune with one another than with Lin starting. There's none of this "who's the point guard" tension with Brooks and Beverley in the lineup. One's a shooter, the other's a defender, and Harden is happily left to his ball dominant combo guard duties.

With Houston having acquired two more guards, and with Lin very obviously unhappy with his role playing off the ball/without the ball/riding the bench, I still think it might benefit the rockets to trade him for cap space, and to allow Lin to play as a traditional PG on another team.

I hope this goes to 7 as well. :)

Honestly, Lin's game is better suited to wreak havoc off the bench, with the ball in his hands making plays in the paint than it is trying to be a 'game manager' and run a Harden-heavy offense.

Harden was a 3rd option and he was effective at it That excuse for Lin has to go. Hes not ready for the NBA but the bench is good for Lin maybe he can get some confidence against less skilled players ; Only tonight will tell.

Anderson will more than likely see some mins tonight to replace Delfino. Also people need settle down on the Lin hate, yes he isn't the best PG in the league. And at times he dosnt look the best. However stop pretending he is the worst player in the league. He isn't even the worst starting PG.

Man, Westbrook is so undervalued by people around here. Yeah he has his moments lol, but he's the heart of OKC's team. His energy on both ends just fuels them in ways that KD can't. Not saying he's better than KD by any means, but he definitely energizes his squad with the plays he makes

Harden was one of the league leaders in FT's attempted. He attempted 2 or 3 more FT's than KD in the regular season iirc. Basketball is a contact sport. It shouldn't be touch=foul. I love the refs letting people play.
