Just want to see some 3s go through the net, we haven't had a great offensive game since the all-star break. Team has riding Harden way too hard on offense, his numbers are reverting back to the old Rockets Harden (low FG%, lots of foul baiting) since we've been playing like the Rockets. Would like to see more ball movement and a return to the balanced offense to get Joe and the shooters going.

Also want to see some more Alize.

Really hope we can secure the #1 seed finally.

This Rockets team is terrible. No excuse for not blowing them out.

Enough of these stupid close games with bad teams. Kill these guys.

No kidding. It's been Harden plus a bunch of role players, just like his Houston days. So what do you expect?

This goes back to the narrative that the Brooklyn Harden has changed. No, he hasn't. He looked different in the beginning because he had better teammates. But with KD and Kyrie out, you can see he's still the same player. Did not change a bit.

100% agree. I'am not sure why but Joe has been guarded closely and can't seem to get any breathing room. Some of it is due to Harden getting slowed down and forced to give up the ball. We need to pick up the overall pace and flow.

JJ Redick confirms he was coming home to Brooklyn before the Dallas trade.

Please give me more then 14 minutes of Claxton tonight.

This has upset potential. you know the rockets want to stomp Harden. and you now harden will drop a 40 point triple double but lately that hasnt been enough to win handily vs awful teams.

Hopefully Kyrie plays more like he did in the first half vs. the wolves then the second.

We have no pick and roll game with Claxton/DJ on the bench. having a stretch 5 is nice but at some point you need threats at the rim or they will just switch everything. Having Kyrie hunt switches helps but he was off second half. hopefully just rust. but him back should help a ton.

I love Blakes effort and we all love green but we need at least 25 minutes from claxton or DJ

Reddick is definitely pissed he got traded.

He clearly wanted to come home and play in Brookyln.

Oh well we can just sign him in the off season. I doubt he will play anywhere else at this point.

Nic his to earn his minutes. Although he has shown flashes his game has been off since the Jazz game.

More to the point of why I quoted this post, this can definetly become an upset if Nash does not make adjustments when needed. It would be nice to put this one away early and let the starters get a little rest on this first game of a back to back...

As expected the team is starting to tire of all these games.

Come out hard and bury the Rockets then we sipping Alize the rest of the night.

I would love to see a focused effort from the outset, keep them at arm's length all game and put this one away without any last minute tension. Let's go, men!

They'll fight till end unless we blow living crap out of them. This is their game 7. Also Harden called them trash ( which they are ) so it'll fun night.
