Awesome 2nd quarter for the Rockets. They looked like the Warriors nornally do on both sides of the ball. Great ball movement and team defense. Always pushing the action, pressing down court and creating fast breaks. I see D'Antoni was bsing when we said ISO ball got them there and they would stick to that.

I have an early meeting, I'll catch the rest of the game tomorrow. Houston SHOULD win this.

I'm surprised Houston pulled it out...and in a blowout at that.

I think this game has gotten my hopes up that it will be a good series, but I'll stick with my original prediction.

GS will handle their business at home and Houston will shut down (other than CP3) in a blowout home loss to end the series.

Curry and CP3 were both showing signs of injury last night. Curry was not running, making back cuts, or moving without the ball and CP3's injury was obvious, yet he was still a beast. They have 4 days to recover, but I can't tell if it's just the injury to Curry or KD wanting to take over, but that's 2 games that the Warriors played lazy ISO ball in a row. The Rockets are playing good off ball defense, but outside of Green and Swaggy, no one is moving when KD has the ball.

I can never get over how freaky it is to watch 7' Durant as a scorer, he's so smooth, quick, efficient, and effortless.

While I don't really care who wins. I found myself rooting for Houston, especially when CP3 was limping and still breakong ankles. I've always liked CP3 and would love to see him get a ring. He should've been a Laker.

My prediction: Boston steals game 3 to go up 3-0.

Yowzers.

I'd love to see a competitive game 4 just to be entertained, but I'm still thinking two more blowouts by GSW to wrap this thing up.
