Rockets were on fire in the 2nd. Let's see if they can sustain this for 48 minutes!

I think this is setting up to be an exciting finish, both teams not giving up.

The game we were hoping for earlier in this series.

Incredible win by Houston!

They definitely played like a desperate team tonite.

Gents, we got ourselves a series now!

Houston got lucky. Golden State turned the ball over too many times. Iguodala's injury is no excuse for why they lost tonight.

The Rockets got lucky. Golden State had too many turnovers and timely misses in the fourth quarter. Blew a 10-point lead.

Will KD go to Philly if the Warriors get bounced by the Rockets?

Definitely, Houston at some points seemed lost, but when their backs were against the wall, they became so aggressive on both ends of the floor while the Dubs became complacent (as usual) and were out hustled and out muscled.

Funny thing is the Dubs almost had a chance to tie it, I don't think they usually make those kinds of calls at the end of a game. But the Dubs should have called a time out for that possession before the Paul foul.

Nonetheless, it was a very good game, both sides not giving up and highly entertaining towards the end. This just might be the win that gets the Rockets over the hump, Paul especially was sensational as a scorer, he was shooting 3's, driving up against taller opponents, etc.

Can't wait for the next one!
