Nice to see that the Godly God mode God beast God that is Joel Embiid is getting some much deserved rest tonight. Dunno why anybody would presume a guy who was just maxed to play games when he is healthy. Gods can't be expected to be all powerful.

Greg Oden is too good of a comp for Embiid. Oden at least plated in games. Embiid only plays on Twitter.


Well done JNC

LeBron is missing more at the rim these last 2 games, obviously going to happen over the course of the season. Just something I noticed. I'm nitpicking because I'm disappointed the streak ended lol.

Cov injured that blows man. Looks bad.

Jesus. Lillard is on fire. Hits four of his first five 3-pointers to start the first quarter, and they're almost all contested. But let's see if he can continue this pace...

Metagame note. Westbrook just yelled at Adams at the end of this game mid court and Adams looked at him like "***** stfu". It is not nothing.

Zach zarba is such a terrible official. I distinctively remember him in the blazers rockets series few years ago being trash.

He's been bad for both sides tonight. That on top of abnormally hot shooting has us tied at half.

Stunned the Rockets are getting smoked by Portland going into the 4th quarter. They need to step it up quick here.

Houston is so ****ing good. Their D is legit and they have two top 7 players in the NBA along with ridiculous length and 3pt shooting. People thinking the Warriors adding KD was overkill and a game ender are going to be put in their place very soon. The Rockets are not far off.

People soon forget that the 73 win Warriors were not even top 2 favorites to win the ship going into the season. This game is fluid, kids.

Wow. Can't believe the Rockets pulled that one out. Spirited effort by the Blazers, who outplayed the Rockets for three quarters and were unbelievable on perimeter jumpers for the majority of the game. But Harden and Paul really exerted their will by driving to the basket in that fourth quarter. Harden had 15 that quarter, and Paul had 10. They ended up with 74 combined points tonight on only 43 FGA.

Houston is now 10-0 with Paul in the lineup, with nine straight wins and eight straight wins on the road. It's safe to say right now that this Rockets team is on pace to be the single greatest regular season Rockets team in team history.

He and harden played great together tonight in the fourth. But Paul provides incredible value when harden is off the floor. They started their run with harden on the bench. They have a floor General on the floor for 48 minutes every game.

Heís a good coach, especially with plenty of talent and yea maybe it can change and he will win one. But I donít think the man has the blood to win it all as the leader/coach. Maybe as an asst coach. Those Suns teams were so good and never reached a finals...

HHaha I was exaggerating but it wouldnít even be a close series. Itís still a long way to go but Bron has a easy path through Esstern Conference playoffs. Rockets would have to, fight scratch and nail to make it, especially beating them Dubs.

I think Rockets are close, very close, a really good big man, **cough cough** Marc Gasol
And they will compete for the title. None attacks the Dubs biggest weakness, and thatís their size. Itís why a Prime Shaq team would be Kryptonite to the Warriors.

Not even a close series? C'mon, man. The Rockets are clearly the superior basketball team. I agree that Lebron is a postseason god, and I realize that Harden and Paul have pretty piss poor postseason reputations. But this is a new year and a new team. To say they wouldn't have a chance when they're playing this well is insulting.
