Tied at the half, this has so far lived up to the hype for me. Both teams refusing to give up.

I expect Golden State to blow it open after halftime.

Golden State, too many weapons!

They really wanted the challenge of the Rockets and they more than responded!

Harden had 41 and Paul had 23 points.

Paul had his points too late. He needs 20 points before the 4th quarter starts

I'm happy with the results. As great a shooter as Harden is, he still plays like he expects a foul call with every drive. You can't win a championship with that mentality.
Coming into the series Durant said "If we come here hoping to get a split, we've already quit". Champions pull out all the stops to get a win, every time they step on the court.

Cavs are not great on defense. This also is not a surprise.

The difference between the Celtics and the other teams is that Stevens has them more focused on the task.
Making life difficult for LeBron does strengthen your chances of winning a series though. Boston will have to keep doing that to even have any chance at making it to the Finals.

That being said, Brad Stevens has been a great coach for the Celtics, especially this year. He deserves to win Coach of the Year for what he has done to keep his team going despite all the injuries.

Golden State really lit it up in the second half. I think the damage has been done at this point. This was the only win in Houston the Warriors really needed. Should the Warriors win both games in Houston, the Rockets are getting swept.

That's exactly what happened. Golden State settled down and played smoother basketball.

For sure. I really wish Irving were playing right now. Would be a lot of fun to see LeBron and Kyrie going at each other. Sadly, we'll have to wait until next year for that.
