You are obviously biased and not logical. We'll revisit this convo in a few days and i'll tell you "I told you so."


Yes we are talking about the past 2 games so rewatch them and come back in a few days


Once again, your words "totally embarrassed" are an exaggeration. You're a little emotional. Have fun while it lasts.

Lol barely up while 30 ahead


This post was made before their run but either way, who cares? It's one game and they split. You're putting way too much emotion and weight on one game when the entire Warriors roster (not named Durant) is off.


Could be said the same in game 1 for the rockets. Rockets clamped down on everyone else and let KD get his. Gotta give credit to the rockets on the defensive end.

Rockets are at home. That's a huge difference. All that Houston did tonight was avoid a sweep. GS are huge favorites after splitting on the road.

GS are favorites I'll give you that but we don't know how rockets are going to perform on the road. I'm not going write them off just yet after this azz whooping they gave tonight

Rockets still have an uphill climb. To win the series they will have to win twice in GS, and likely the W's best players will have to have at least anther night like this one.
If winning matters, the role shouldn't.....the results should.

Nearly nothing. They're going home and will be fine. Curry, Draymond and Klay are all off. It's a terrible sign for the Rockets that they can't pull away.

The Rockets whooped their ass tonight. Period. Their role players stepped up big time and basically saved their season. It also helped that the Warriors commited like 15 turnovers, Klay, Curry and Draymond played awful, and they got no help from the bench who will definitely play a lot better at home.

Houston got their 1 game. Shot lights out from outside and the Warriors couldn't find any rhythm. With that out of the way, I doubt they win another game in this series.

Kudos to Rockets for reg season mastery but they're about to get exposed badly.


No but they've got multiple long armed wing defenders who can give KD and Dray fits. Ariza, Mbah a Moute, and PJ Tucker are all good defenders who can hit the 3 at a reasonable clip. Don't sleep on Capela either. Hes been amazing this season. He won't get exposed when the Warriors go small because he's really quick laterally. He's the key to the Rockets hopes. I'm not going to go as far as to predict the Rockets winning because I do think their offense has the tendency to be come predictable and too iso dependent with Harden but to say they will be exposed seems to be a tad bit over the top...

It's 1 game but like I said, Rockets getting exposed. It isn't even fair...

Lol you are clearly so biased. The fact that the Rockets won a game against the Dubs means they weren't "exposed" as you like to call it. Nobody was saying the Rockets were favorites to win the series, but in terms of the Warriors best challenge post-KD? They are clearly it and I wouldn't be shocked if Houston steals a game on the road to get homecourt back to their favor. Both eastern conference teams are going to get smacked by one of these teams in the finals. This is clearly the best 2 teams in basketball going at it. Nobody will be "exposed"

Not a Dubs fan so that idea goes out the window. Do you even understand the context of “exposed”? You know best regular season record, best “challenge” to Dubs, blah blah blah, then exposed as frauds who never had a shot.

Rockets won 1 game on what was statistically the weirdest of nights for both teams. Great! They avoid the sweep, but losing 4-1 after having best record in NBA would be considered getting exposed.

Not true, if Rockets win both remaining home games, they only need 1 game at Warriors
