A few observations...

I kind of wanted to face the Thunder, don't know why but I thought that was an easier opponent even though they match up better than Houston with the Lakers.

Should Rocket fans even be proud? It took a careless mistake by an undrafted rookie for your team to even get out of the first round.

Intrigued with how Vogel defensively schemes for Houston's backcourt. Do you let Harden get his and shut everyone else down? Harden could average 60 and Houston could still be swept.

I don't know what to really think of this series. The Lakers size is a huge advantage but Houston has got 2 of the top 5 guards in the league.

It's such a bad match up for the Rockets. We should easily win this series.

Worried about Covington, he had his way against the Lakers in our match up with them, we need to make sure there role players donโ€™t look like all stars against us, Westbrook and Harden will get thereโ€™s.

We need to destroy them in the paint and not get sucked into their game of launching as many 3s as possible. If we can handle Portland's back-court, we should be able to handle Houston.

I think LA can legit go big against the Rockets, HOU's shooters have really not been good in the bubble, especially in the OKC series.

He's played center every game he's played this year. (Along with the pf spot.)

I think Houston should be spent after this grueling game 7. Davis needs to dominate. I don't see who guards him.

Lakers in 6.

Is it possible to hate and love a matchup at the same time? My feelings are mixed. We canโ€™t play their style, thatโ€™s for sure. I think LbJ has to drive hard in this one and AD just has to play center. Posting AD might not be as effective, just play him at the 5 and watch the easy buckets come.

So less minutes for Dwight the fouling machine?

I'm interested in seeing the big line up from the lakers, may give up a few more threes but may wear down pj tucker and covington throughout the series. I hope Dwight and all of our bigs play very physical, not via post ups but boxing out, physical screens, clearing space, battling for position etc.

Yeah, tiring out PJ and ROCO could be key in knocking them out early. They already had a tough time dealing with Adams who looked like he could barely lift his feet.

yeah, I feel the rockets shooters can be really streaky. so if pj tucker is missing his corner threes, I wouldn't mind leaving the big line up out longer (assuming they are playing very physically). I really want to batter their "bigs" so come 4th quarter, Lebron and AD can dominate

I like the big lineup, as long as they donโ€™t get in foul trouble on defense.

I wanted OKC to win because CP3 didnโ€™t deserve to be the scapegoat for Houstonโ€™s shortcomings...valiant effort but Rockets as expected.

Here we go. Really irritates me to watch the Rockets play. Smh.
