Not necessarily the Cavs actually play better with Love off the floor he's like a -18 when he's on the floor.

The evil empire will win on Monday Night even if Paul plays, they turned that switch on!

For the East, I am thinking maybe they can steal 1 game, 2 and its a miracle.


Guys the real Finals is in the NHL. Hope you guys are on the Capitals Ovechkin bandwagon.

The Rockets had 25 points total in the 2nd half, 16 in the 3rd quarter and 9 in the 4th quarter, that's got to be some sort of record (in a bad way!), no?

The defense was not there. The pace was GSWs pace even though the Rockets were hitting early. Too many open shots for Klay. Too many turnovers for the Rockets.

Rockets... 39 pts in the 1stQ... 25 pts in the second half. Harden totally stopped passing the ball. Golden opportunity missed.

GSWs assists have been down... 26 tonight.

The Rockets only played 6-7 players most of the night; the Warriors just had to wear them down. It also helped that they started moving the ball efficiently and played like they actually wanted it.
Game 7 should be one for the ages, especially if Paul and Iguodala are back.

You can't beat Golden State by playing their same style which is shooting a bunch of 3's

I didn't get it watch the game, but I figured with Paul out it would hinder them. So two Game 7's.
I think it'll be Warriors VS Celtics. It would be cool to see Rockets vs Celtics...it would be a change and would be unexpected.

Sad to see the season end for the Cavs this way, but glad I got to go to a few awesome games. Now I will just be sitting around waiting to see what LeBron does

Lol another exciting WCF game...

Houston Pretenders scored 39 in the first and 47 in the final three. Somebody forgot to tell them the game isn't won in the 1stQ...

On another note, while injuries suck, this is coming to define Chris Paul's career. Either he's never available when you need him most, or he underperforms...

And Golden State for the time being gets to continue their tradition of waltzing through teams with less than full strength to The Finals. They've been doing it since '15...

The Warriors have always had injuries themselves, including last night. But they only seem to matter when itís other teams players who are hurt.

If I had a 16 point lead at Golden State I'd get the ball to James Harden and tell him to drive to the basket on every possession, no more 3-point-attempts.
Slow the game down and get to the free-throw-line.
