why do houstonians rag on their team so hard...
we came back from double digits and evened the series. defense wasn't great. howard bricking and deandre splashing his fts wasn't great. but i think at half time everyone was already calling the series a wrap. maybe it is the tmac years and the utah jazz/portland trailblazers dumping on us for 5 years but this is a different team. have some faith.
my entire feed is "mchale doesn't know what he's doing" and "duke could score on us" and then 20 mins later "RED NATION STAND UP"
cp3 is a big deal but if cp3's on the floor that just means crawford or frickin austin rivers won't be splashing threes. i thought the foul calling was in houston's favor near the end, when it mattered. hoping clippers don't get that kind of home court treatment.
if we win one out of two in lac, we're fine. rockets just started heating up.
and the turning point was when jason terry dove on a clipper for the loose ball and forced a jump ball. like the vet he is, it pumped up the crowd and the team. i seriously think that was the most important play in the series for the rockets.
also, if we want to go anywhere near the title, we need josh smith to play well. smith needs to get rolling and get confident. didn't he have a near triple double in 1 half in the last series?
