I think we close it out tomorrow, unlike the Rockets, Nugget’s aren’t dealing with issues like the Rockets are, unless the Lakers just lay a big egg we are gonna close them tomorrow.

The Rockets are down but not out. They will fight to the end. We cannot afford to have a let down.
It should be a very competitive game but I think we will be up to the challenge. GO LAKERS!!

Yeah, this is the kind of game where the Rockets comeback and the Clippers game today will both be very fresh in the Coaches and Players minds which is a good thing as I feel like they will come out the gate swinging to end this game and the entire series as fast as possible.

I see Green and Kuz shining bright in this one and being that 3/4 option for a game.

Bron is not dumb, he has to stomp them here and now.

I feel we are due for a Harden 40+ game, hope we weather the storm!

It's tough to see the Rockets play worse than they did in the first three quarters of the last game. I think it's a given that they will show up and make a bunch of threes. If we stay in the game and are within a few points in the 4th quarter, our defense will probably show up and win it.

I look for Harden to play lights out. In Westbrook I sense defeat.

Small ball was D'Antoni's idea and the reason Clint Capela was traded, big mistake. Those are two reasons he'll be looking for employment next season.

When Golden State turned the basketball world upside down with their perimeter game, the game changed. It became a small man's, guard orientated game. What was lost in the shuffle they also had a midrange game. Houston doesn't. Double Harden they're dead in the water.

James has the ability to attack the rim, so does Westbrook. If they go to that game plan JaVale and Dwight will use all 12. Do a Barkley, punish them.

I look for the Lakers to close it out. If they get the Rockets down big I don't think they'll take their foot off the pedal. A lesson was learned.

As for Mike, he's 69. Celebrity Net Worth has him at $12 million. I look for him to ride off into the sunset and get his fishing poles out of the attic.

I want Boston to take the East the Lakers the West and clean their clock in the finals. As I said getting #17 by beating them would send me to basketball heaven.

GO LAKERS!!!

With a win today we will likely end the Rockets era of Harden/Westbrook + D’Antoni.... it’s gonna be a beautiful day today if we can make it happen.

It will also likely be the end to small ball as a only option. Small ball will be used during the game when it's a good offense against a particular defense. The concept will not disappear all together.

They just didn't adjust much so far - not sure if they will...
