Regardless of how this season ends. Bench scoring needs to be addressed

Why are these games starting so late? This game started at 9:30 last night and I have to be in bed by 11 on weeknights. Did they not take into consideration that people have work the next morning?

Hey Rocket-fans. Jazz fan here. Don't worry, I come in peace :)

A few different subjects I want to touch on:

First, sorry the Jazz didn't show up those first two games. Anyone who paid to watch a playoff game between 2 good teams, got screwed.

I'm a bit confused by some of the Jazz's defensive strategies, but they are also so unorthodox that I'm intrigued. What do you think of the way the Jazz have been playing behind Harden? Have any other teams done this vs him? It seems effective in some ways, and has definitely appeared to get him out of his scoring mentality a bit. Also, the Jazz seem to have made a really good adjustment to stop the lob to Capela (who I think it a really effective player), by getting a wing to cut him off from diving. Thing is, if Tucker, House, etc. are "on", this D is not going to work at all, since they are left wide open and Harden has good vision. If they are missing those shots though, it's kinda genius.

In this thread I see many complaints about refs, which seems funny since your team has the player who gets way with more "stuff" than any player in the league. I have my complaints about calls in favor of the Rockets (it's our job as fans to always think our team gets screwed, right?), but I think overall the calls haven't been too bad. For Harden, they just aren't giving him the floppy theatrical calls as much as he is used to getting. It's taken him a little out of his game, I think. (I'm well aware that Rubio & Crowder are also floppers, so I'm not trolling with these comments.)

In regards to the Rockets players; I didn't know House much, so getting to know his game has been cool. Gordon doesn't get the credit he deserves for his impact on the team, as the "4th guy", but he's a solid player. Capela is my fav Rockets player. The guy is a really good fit with the Rockets. On the flip side, I've never been a fan of Rivers. I don't understand what he brings to the table. And CP3 is just obnoxious to me. I don't have examples, but my impression of the way he carries himself just rubs me wrong, regardless of his skills. I'd love to hear what your thoughts are on Jazz players. (Ingles, who really is very good, has been totally non-existent in this series is the obvious one.)

Finally, there's always hope until one team wins 4 games (even though it's slim), so I hope to see a lot more of the Rockets v Jazz. But regardless of who wins, I hope they beat the snot out of the Warriors :)
