No Harden, Nene or Mbah a Moute for Houston tonight, so I can't say I like their chances against the Warriors. It also doesn't help that it's the second night of a back-to-back, and they were in Florida yesterday. Watch out for Gerald Green, though. The guy was a monster last night against Orlando.

A far as back to backs: Warriors are also on the back end of a back to back. ;)

Yes, but playing two nights in two cities that are a 3-hour drive from each other is a little different than playing two nights in two cities that are half a country apart. Not making excuses for the schedule, though. If the Rockets lose, it will have far more to do with injuries and quality of the play than it will the schedule.

It does admittedly suck, though, that we're not not likely going to see these two teams at full health again in the regular season. The last time they play each other is on Jan. 20. I'd like to think Harden will be back by then, but I'd be a little surprised if he was given the injury.

Proud of the way these shorthanded Rockets played in that first half. Golden State had a sexy little run there at the end thanks to Thompson's ridiculous shooting, but if you told me at the start of the game that Houston would have a one-point halftime lead, I'd absolutely take it. Also, that ridiculous move Paul put on Nick Young almost made up for that abysmal banked in corner 3-pointer Swaggy P hit in the first quarter.

Lol these guys are bringing the energy despite both being down players and on b2b's I'm impressed. As a general fan I'm liking the aggressiveness from Gordon and CP3. Warriors are playing about as well as I could expect after the long game last night.

Lets see the Rockets win.... the false hope it will give to us warrior haters will be fools gold to say the least.... They won without HARDEN or they kept it close without harden... Lets not factor in curry is missing his explosive first step it seems right now which is understandable and there is no Durant.... Ya know the 2nd best player in basketball... I hate harden and would prefer the rockets over the warriors but this game is exactly why the rockets can never win in the post season with mike D as the coach... This system cant be sustained over a 7 game series... this type of game would destroy the rockets in any of the next games and they would start throwing up shots and would go cold... The rockets would need to shoot the lights out in 2 games and pray harden could go for 60 in each of the next 2 games.... This system is fun but its unsustainable.

Fun game. CP3/Gordon/Capela all played great and Gerald Green had one of the more insane games you'll see off the bench, but the Splash Brothers and a Draymond triple-double did their thing in this one. Looking forward to seeing these teams at full strength. Pretty sure the Rockets blew their chances at the 1 seed with this past couple weeks though.

Yeah, definitely imo. PG is a sick sick player when he's fully engaged on both ends (playoffs) and by that time they should have gelled pretty well (they're already pretty close and way better than they were to start the year). They're scary to the Warriors if there's a big injury and could probably beat anyone else based on their sheer talent level + defensive beasts.

Bear in mind tonight they're on a b2b in LA and half their team is probably hungover as **** and lazier than normal on D. Part of why I bet the over lol.

Funny how Westbrook is essentially averaging a triple double and the news is MUTE on it. Nobody here/there cares or says anything about it. The reason is because they started a bit slower, we realize his rebounds are inflated by his teammates (mostly Adams.. who averages more O-rebounds than D-rebounds which is hilarious), and we're already numb to the nonsense of the stat (basically a rebound award for a guard... who is gifted his rebounds).

That said, Westbrook has been incredible the past few weeks and his takeover of the team is the reason for their return to relevance. The guy is great for the NBA.
