    Clearly Harden wanted the Triple Double more than the game...

    guy wouldn't pass and couldnt miss anything in the game then after the timeout hes passing it every time??? 2 Assists away from a trip double and clearly cared about it more

    disagree with everything you said... except Capela having a good game. Howard is a fukkin pussy, thats why Houston gonna lose. Sits out "cuz his knee hurts". Houston should go small the whole series to match GS when they go small.

    Prigioni should be playing more over Terry. Terry does nothing to help them win, he's not hitting 3's so what does he do? Prigioni plays a little defense (not alot), and gets the offense going. Terry just runs back and forth standing in corners on both ends

    Terry is okay but they need Howard to win but you do not know if he shows up or not each game

    in fairness to Smith, the Rockets wouldn't have even made it out of the 1st round without him. he was unstoppable against the Mavs and then was basically their best player in games 5,6,7 against the Clippers. game 6 comeback was 75% all him.

    the much bigger problem tonight was Howard's injury combined with all the Rockets' missed FT's. you're right though about McHale not giving Capela nearly enough minutes, another braindead decision on his part.
    175 pts

    Harden had a great night. But his style of iso play in last couple minutes really bogged down the rockets offense.

    Most of these so-called stars kill their teams at the end of games

    Not true!! Harden had a few bad passes and key missed shots in the last minutes. (I know he was the one keeping them alive early in the 4th)

    Howard hasn't been the same since he plyed in Orlando..was a joke in LA and at times can be pathetic..its the playoffs get a fkin steroid shot and play..also how many times is he passed the ball and loses control.

    And you know he wasn't injured because? Surely he'd sit out of WCF for no reason at all. You guys are gonna hate regardless you do it all the time. Just were praising him last couple games now he's a soft punk, heard nobody degrade Tony Allen for sitting out. Howard played with a torn labrum in L.A. putting up his same career numbers and was hated on so I guess this is par for the course.

    LOL at this hater. I'd call an MCL sprain an injury. If it was regular season most guys would be out 2 weeks+. Dwight probably not going to be able to go for Game 2 but he will probably give it a shot in Game 3. Rockets still only 10.5 point dogs despite Vegas knowing Howard is unlikely to play. Line didn't really even move when news of his MRI came out today. Tells you that GS is not as great as ESPN would have you believe. Vegas has already adjusted from the ridiculous game 1 line of +10.5 WITH a healthy Dwight.
