I can’t really say anything about refs but I imagine it’s sort of tough job to get all the calls right. Maybe they could call even more fouls than they do? The speed that NBA players move at surely makes getting everything right difficult.

This is shaping up to be a good, tight game again!

One ominous thing though, the Dubs have already been expending a lot of energy running back and forth (some caused by unnecessary turnovers yet again). Some of them look like they're sucking wind bad. This is a team that's supposed to be run and gun and uptempo, right?

This **** is boring... nothing but a 3pt shooting contest.

People are going to pretend that there was great defense in this game, but it was just a bunch of garbage shots.

Harden doesn't have the Brains to be a Franchise Player. He has no idea how to maintain momentum for his team when they are winning since he likes to come down and launch a step back three pointer What kind of offense is that for a leader? No setting up your teammates for buckets? No driving to the basket to get a easier bucket or maybe get to the line? Harden is the worst and is more suited for playground basketball.

One ominous sign for the Dubs is that Harden and Paul are combined for only 11 points, yet they are still up by 8 points.

That was, amazing. The Dubs started off like carp, and now they pulled back to tie at the half!

These are two tired teams.

Three point shots are mostly short... sloppy turnovers. Hou taking too many threes for a tired team.

GSW slowly snapping out of it...

If GSW gets a 3rdQ run, Hou may not have enough in the tank to climb back in it.

If I was Hou, I would try someone different just for energy purposes.

Close Game favors GS which is why Houston will probably lose this game
