2 games to 2 and tied at halftime in game 5.  Can't get much closer than that.

You're only watching basketball because there's no hockey game tonight.....

One scenario has the Celtics facing the Rockets in the Finals. Didn't see that coming!

Golden state is a 3rd quarter team.  The fact that Houston is within 1 after the 3rd is a good sign.

Barn burner!

 

Rockets 92-86 with 4:00 left.

Woot!

Indeed.  🤸‍♀️

 

Congrats, and great NBA game!  So, what have we learned?

 

1.  JJ Watt is a massive human being.

2.  His wife is better than average looking.

3.  Rockets can win even Harden has a bad day.  His long distance shooting was terrible.

3.  Chris Paul has a real problem, did you see him grabbing that hamstring?  That thing hurt and hammies don't heal in a couple of days.

He's done.  Wouldn't surprise me if his season is over.  The Rockets really need him to get one more win over GS.  I think they can take whoever comes out of the East without him but they have to get there first.

CP3 is out for game 6.  

 

Harden is 0 for his last 20 from 3pt land.  Games have been all defense.  Players are worn-out.  Sir Charles alluded to kind-of "throwing" Game 6 because the Rockets have worn their guys out by only playing 7 players out of their roster these past 2 games.  Kenny Smith expressed outrage at the thought.  I don't know...  I could see a strategy involving resting some players for a game 7 at home.

That just means he's overdue for a big game.  I think are a lot of his misses are because his legs are tired from playing defense.  He's not used to that.

 

I'd rest the whole starting line up if it got to 15+ points down in the second half but be sneaky about it so that Golden state doesn't do the same.

My friend and I were talking about this today.  GS is on the ropes.  If we put in our bench guys to run GS like there's no tomorrow.  If they could just keep the game within reach for most of the time, it'd force GS to keep playing their starters.  They would have to come to Houston with 1 day's rest, while our starters would have 3 days of rest.  Home game.  Harden's due.

Well, they're certainly fresh.

That's insane!  😱

Game seven at the garden!

Should be a good one.   Boston has been doing well at home.
