This was such a weird game:

-LeBron had 16 points
-James Harden shot more free throws than our entire team
-The Rockets shop 40% from three again

If someone would have given me those data points before the game, I would have told you we lost by 20 not one relatively easily
They cut it to 5 despite being down 22. That's what shooting 40% from 3 does.

We outrebounded them by double. 52-26. Hustling, control the paint.

Hmmm I think the 5 point deficit was obtained pretty much from turnovers by LAL. We literally had about 6 turnovers in a span of 3 mins and they lead to an immediate layup or fouling harden 89 feet from basket

I’m liking our chances against the Clippers more and more with each game.

I think Rondo gonna cook Lou , and if we can get 10 a piece or something in that area from Kief, DG, and Caruso or Kuzma, we good.

If they win this series. That lineup with AD on 5 is gonna run smooth af and be a problem for the clips. Defense is also gonna be A1 thanks to rockets.

weird indeed. 21 pts from Caruso/THT was a big factor in us winning despite what you mentioned

I absolutely love how quickly narratives change. The story went from "The Rockets are a bad matchup for the Lakers", "the Lakers don't have anyone who can guard Harden", "Rockets in 7" to all of a sudden the story is the Lakers who are always better and Houston was never that good. The exact same thing happened with Portland
