A stunning loss by the Rockets.

Amazing win by Utah, great for them! They showed a lot of poise and guts throughout the game.

Sorry Rockets fans, you better worry about getting past this team first before wondering if they can beat the Warriors.

Max Kellerman is having a DISASTROUS week!
Max thought Toronto and Houston were a lock to make the Finals!
Stephen A. Smith has correctly predicted Toronto would still be too chokey to overcome Cleveland, and Stephen A. Smith sees Golden State winning it all again.

I think the Rockets will be fine, but this proves they're not the lock so many people thought they were based on the regular season.

Golden State are such a well-oiled machine in the playoffs, its just so hard to envisage Houston keeping up with them.
Houston definitely don't play as free in the playoffs, and even though Paul improved them he actually is an occasionally nervous ball-handler in playoff games.

I wouldn't even watch a NBA Finals that had Houston vs Toronto.

That would be the worst

So does Quin get any votes for COY?

Remember those Missouri days, I realize it's been 12 years since he left, but it seems like forever ago.

He'll get some votes but Brad Stevens is the likely winner I would think.

What separates GSW from Hou is sustained intensity. Hou is not there in terms of their long term in game focus.

About last night's game - Houston won... they were just in the white jerseys. Did Utah not look like the Rockets on offense? Numerous alley oops... drives to the basket and kick out for the three... they hit 15 threes and out shot Hou.

Utah will likely try to duplicate this on Friday, but it won't work as well. Ingles had a career high game, likely not to happen again. Bench was on fire. Their defense was not great - but because they made baskets, it slowed Hou down.

Hou will lose the series if Utah out shoots them from three point land - but I am not expecting that.
