@  RocketMan : (26 May 2015 - 04:59 PM) I think the fact that Bogut was being a jerk just before is the saving grace.
@  RocketMan : (26 May 2015 - 04:58 PM) But then again Randolph was a PUNCH, not backhand slap in immediate reaction to being roughed up.
@  RocketMan : (26 May 2015 - 04:56 PM) Best comparison would have to be Zach Randolph from last year... he was not ejected, but was suspended for game 7.
@  RocketMan : (26 May 2015 - 03:41 PM) They had time to review it. They will be hesitant to upgrade when they took so long in the first place to look at it.
@  JY86er : (26 May 2015 - 08:38 AM) Horford didnt get suspended. Maybe NBA give Howard a break also.
@  SadLakerFan : (26 May 2015 - 05:25 AM) There's no question in my mind Dwight is going to be suspended. You could argue he's facing away, and the hand was open, but based on what we've seen this season, he's gone.
@  Mario Peña : (26 May 2015 - 04:59 AM) It's obvious Harden has taken another step this postseason. The dude is going to be even better next year. Amazing.
@  Willk : (26 May 2015 - 04:13 AM) I have a bad feeling that Howard is going to be suspended. Hope not though
@  SadLakerFan : (26 May 2015 - 03:48 AM) The value of James Harden's rookie card just went up by a dollar.
@  cointurtlemoose : (26 May 2015 - 03:46 AM) James Harden is good at basketball.
@  SadLakerFan : (26 May 2015 - 03:34 AM) Ten point lead three minutes left. McHale can prove himself now.
@  cointurtlemoose : (26 May 2015 - 02:20 AM) Klay Thompson needs to stop what he's doing...
@  jorgeaam : (26 May 2015 - 02:15 AM) What a shame that didn't count
@  jorgeaam : (26 May 2015 - 02:14 AM) Yeah but I'd say that they get much better looks when they're trying harder on offense, rather than just letting Harden go one on one and create something
@  majik19 : (26 May 2015 - 02:06 AM) well great shooting really helps (now we've cooled off).
@  jorgeaam : (26 May 2015 - 01:52 AM) Does anyone realize how good the Rockets are when they put constant effort in their games? Same with Clippers series, they become unstoppable
@  jorgeaam : (26 May 2015 - 01:36 AM) Well, I don't care if we lose this series anymore, we just scored 45 points in a quarter against GS
@  majik19 : (25 May 2015 - 08:07 PM) I think Ariza chases Curry around tonight, and if Thompson beats us, he beats us.
@  SadLakerFan : (25 May 2015 - 03:43 AM) Lebron James is playing with a fire. Unreal performance tonight when his threes aren't falling.
@  Mario Peña : (24 May 2015 - 03:55 PM) Don't get me wrong, I hope they can come back and be competitive but the lack of talent/production from the 1 and 4 in this series really makes it hard on Harden/Howard.

Why wasn't Josh Smith in for defense on the W's possession with 38(ish) seconds left? Why doesn't Harden see TJ trailing for his personal favorite pocket pass for the exclamation point on their home stand and the win? When he read the defense and passed to Dwight why not call timeout instead of passing off? I take James in the open floor for the win all day and night but shoot that was a critical error.

All those things aside, we're not even having discussion without him though and I won't forget that. I just feel like this kid right now:

    99 times out of 100, Harden gets a quality shot or makes a perfect pass. In this case, nobody had a clear path to the basket and Harden saw that in my opinion. Ariza was covered and Brewer darted out to the 3 point line in the corner but by then Harden was stuck in the double team.

    It's amazing the Rockets even had a chance to win on the last possession after being down 8 with 1:20 left in the game.

    If truth was told, Coach McHale likely told the guys to rebound and run downhill rather than call their last timeout when Golden State called time out just prior to their last possession.

    The Rockets need more than 7 points from Ariza, need some offense from Corey Brewer and can someone please tell Josh Smith he is in the Western Conference Finals and needs to show up. I have a good feeling all 3 will play much better in Houston these next 2 games.

    Rockets have to tie this series 2-2 to have any chance at all of winning the series.

      My reaction? I'm not in a very good mood right now. Harden played brilliantly once again, but he should've drive to the basket on that last play. Yeah I know, if it wasn't for him we wouldn't even be in that position to win, and writing about it after the game is over is so easy. But yeah, it's a play that can win that game for us. Hopefully they will rebound and win game 3, a must-win game obviously.
