The clippers will sweep them if they meet in the playoff


Houston is a bad matchup for Clippers, they doesn't have enough defensive guards to stop Harden and Westbrook which Lakers has plenty.


Lol its like rock paper scissors

Interesting take didnt look at it that way - couldnt pg or kl do it?

I usually don't rag on refs but this crew was horrible. Crews are evaluated game by game. This crew will probably get a F. Fo Sho they won't get any post season work.

Without AD and Rondo we beat the Rockets


We are lucky we didn’t have Rondo. The 2nd unit continues to play better without him.

If anything, this game showed rondo is important, we don’t win that OKC game without him either
AC struggles big time today


The OKC game was a different type of game with no AD and Lebron and him getting to play a team with two smaller PGs.

The game is played on both side of the court. Caruso played really badly on offense today, but was still a +15. He is great defensively.

Harden burns Kawhi when they match up.

Beverly is usually on Harden and he's fouled out … every time I think?

I feel good enough to go to ESPN+ to watch Conner McGregor and Cowboy Donald Cerrone. Also big props to the bench and Vogel

Said that from the giddy up. Double team Harden let the Rockets gets theirs. Westbrook was their offense and it wasn't enough.

That teams window may be closed. Their big 2 combine for 69 points and lose to a team with one of their big 2 (and best defender) not playing - at home. Im pissed if im a rocket fan

I think it's the first time this season with 4 20+ scorers.

LeBron 31
Kuz 23
KCP 20
DGreen 20

He scored going to the rim, that's not his game. When he's hitting 3's it opens up their offense, fires up the team.

Ok this team might have something special. 2 straight weekends with impressive wins.

They just need to get over this clippers hump on Jan 28.

Team has been insane on the road.

I would rather watch 1970s basketball when players would literally clothesline each other than watch the Houston Rockets brand of basketball
