So freaking excited. This is easily the best Rockets team I've had the pleasure of watching since the mid-90s and I can't help but have high expectations. This is a series they should win, and I'm expecting a win tonight at home in Game 1.

Rockets should win this. I still don't believe Portland has the defense to win a 7 game series. They can outscore any team on any given night, but so can Houston.

Yea I got u guys winning to but hopefully goes 7. Can't wait for Bev vs Lill, but the BIG question is who is gonna guard LA? becuz u don't want Superman picking up fouls on him

Lol yea he's gonna have a field daaayyy on all y'all 4's, only chance is for Supps to defend him in the 4th. And that Bev vs Lill is sooooo crucial if he can't get going there gonna lose early.

The Rockets are playing some horrible basketball right now, but the massive disparity in turnovers and free throws between both sides will even out and Houston will get back into this game in the second quarter. Also, there's just no way Harden and Howard can continue to be this cold all game long.

You realize that's complete ****ing nonsense, right? The guy has just been cold tonight. He's had some excellent looks from the 3-point line, but he just isn't making them. And he hasn't had a single "flop" all game long. He also has 6 assists, which you're conveniently overlooking.

Shaq literally thinks, Dwight is him.

Dwight ain't him.

He conserves his energy for the defense and rebounding. He's not, he doesn't have the great hook shot, this isn't the NBA in 2000 where the post man can camp build his position there and not get called. Shaq outweighed the post option by 100lbs on most nights.

Their the Pacers of the West. Had a good start then absolutely sucked balls afterwards. They only got into playoffs cause they had such a hot start to the season.

Just like the Pacers have such a hard time putting the ball in the basket, the Blazers have a hard time stopping the other team from putting the ball in the basket.

I think there has undoubtedly been a Ref Show tonight. It's negatively impacting the product; making it less fun to watch. That's when it's a problem. One team has been so much better than the other so it's not completely ruining it. But still, it's annoying. The ref show in LA yesterday was just brutal tho. It ruined a game and severely weakened the overall experience. When refs become the main story, and I'm not talking the homers on PSD whining about every single call, that's an issue. I really don't get this bothered really ever, and it's happened twice in two days. It's probably been years. I'm as much of a ref-sympathizer as there is, too.

You realize that's complete ****ing nonsense, right? The guy has just been cold tonight. He's had some excellent looks from the 3-point line, but he just isn't making them. And he hasn't had a single "flop" all game long. He also has 6 assists, which you're conveniently overlooking. You should seriously just quit with that nonsensical argument before you're made to look very, very foolish.
That's the definition of garbage...
