Kuzma 9-9 FG. 6-6 from 3. 24 Pts in 19 min. :drool:

and we're still only up 4. We had a 22 pt lead but Rockets couldn't miss.

oh, and **** Harden. Several attempts looking to draw a foul instead of trying to make the shot, and a few of those went in. :mad:

Not denying his style works, but it's the most annoying **** ever. Can't wait til he's out of the NBA tbh. Never seen someone do it this blatant.

And yes, I would love it if he were on my team, but he's not. So **** harden.

Despite the 4pt play here that SHOULD still be a wrap. Watched most of the game. Rox definitely missed Capella, and Kuzma was fire for the 1st 3 quarters (well 1st half at least). Harden basically foul hunted for 48 minutes so that was fun to watch go down for a change.

Ingram losing the ball there brings to light that they actually don't have a single elite ball handler on their roster, and really no great ISO players. That's a wreck for end of game situations and needs to be addressed in the off-season (both by signings and working on those facets of the game by Ingram, Ball, etc).

I'm thinking Marc Gasol will have a huge game tonight for Memphis. Shouldn't matter though. That team is a wreck without 1 of Gasol/Conley. Can't believe they have a worse record than the Bulls. At least they'll get a great draft pick this year.

I look at 3 teams right now and think "how the **** are you supposed to beat them 4 out of 7 times in a playoff series." The Cavs even without IT, the Warriors, and the Rockets. The Spurs may get there but haven't hit their stride with Kawhi back yet. The Celtics don't have a chance against any of these teams. They just can't score near enough to keep up.

Scoots

The Warriors win without 5 of their top 7 players and the Rockets lose. .5 games back now.

Warriors and Rockets both started relatively slow with multiple losses in their first 7-8 games, since then both have been dominant. The biggest surprise to me is the Rockets defense. They added good defenders but the surprise to me is how the whole team has bought in and years of sloppy rotations is suddenly fixed. More power to Morey being the man who built this team.

I mean as is they currently have the highest offensive rating in NBA history. Multiple top 10 offensive players, multiple elite 3pt shooters outside of them, a fantastic young center in Capella and a bolstered wing defense. They are legitimately on course to be one of the most dominant teams of our time. Just so happens they'll have to take down the greatest team of our time to win it all.

Their downfall imo will be their short rotations and overpaying of Harden so early in the season. He will fatigue and they will ultimately fall to the more balanced + dominant 2 way team in GS.
