    Who will stop the beard?

    James Harden should go off against Spurs. Harden plays no D but Kawhi will be tired guarding him & taking lot of fouls when Harden throws his arms up going to the rim 10x a game lol

    Spurs will double The Beard at will. They don't want him playing one on one at any time against ANY of their players.

    So....what's the bet then? You on the Rockets for the series? Game 1? Points?

    I think it will be a tremendous series and I think the Rockets have a real shot here.

    All of the games between then have been very close. It really comes down to how Hou shoots the long ball and that's hard to predict. I see some 6's up now and that's too many to lay. Both teams had an efficient first round.

    Green will get the start guarding Harden, with Kawhi guarding him late. They are gonna use team defense, but it will be chore with rotations and communication. Houston doesn't exactly play lockdown defense and don't see them consistently stopping the Spurs either. This is going to be a tight series, going to come down to TO's and rebounding.

    This. Green to start, and Kawhi will guard him late. Spurs have a better chance at slowing Harden down than Rockets do of slowing Kawhi down.

    Best scorer against best defender, this is going to be great at times. Only thing better would be durant vs kawhi

    Thought Memphis was playing their best ball vs the Spurs. Could have easily ended in 4 or 5.

    Thought the Spurs bench would not be nearly as good with an aging Manu and Mills who was never as good as pre shoulder surgery. Pop went small against Memphis with Parker and Mills out there and other combinations not seen before. But all that aside it is the Leonard show. Spurs just too deep. Hou will have to be on fire from 3 point range to avoid being swept. Spurs in 5 with a strong possibility of a sweep. Sets up a great western conf final.

    Harden is a great player but man down the stretch he has been a liability. Was it 2 years back where they were pulling him out with 5 minutes to go in the game, I think that was against GS.

    And that last game vs SA in SA, under a minute he fumbled one possession and with the spurs up two he missed BOTH free throws with 6 seconds left. They still won but the point is he is not past those late screw ups, Tony Romo style.

    Dont think he'll tired guarding a guy who isnt the quickest in the world and is fairly predictable. Wont be running around screens without the ball. Dont think he will have many problems, just dont go for the little head and pump fakes.

    Aldridge is the game changer here.

    If the guy can step it up spurs roll.

    Will there ever be a big as great as Shaq or Dunkin again?

    I'm so disappointed, Howard a clown,de Andre Jordan a clown.

    If Houston doesn't turn the ball over... they have a chance... but if they turn it over 18+ a game... don't think they can beat the Spurs

    Exactly.. not sure how people say spurs will roll them.. houston has enough offense to hang with them.. they do play dumb at times but spurs almost average team without kawhi...I played last night plus 6.. I think rockets have legit shot at advancing and they will win 1 of the first 2 games..we will see..good luck...

    Game 1 I expect the total to fly over the posted number.....as we have seen, Houston can start slow, and if they do....hit the total again if you have live betting as an option.

    The Rockets will not try to outplay the Spurs, they will try to outscore the Spurs...they feel that scoring and pace is their best weapon.

    I cant wait for this game....it should be a blast.

    I like Hou tonight at over +200

    Honestly, who knows if their 3's are going to drop or not, but if they do, they will win. If not, they lose. I don't think SA is going to do much to influence whether the 3's go in, so I'll take HOUSTON all series with a punchers chance

    I'm with TMS, Kraken & Wikid on this one.
    The Rockets appear to strong on both ends of the court.
    They punished west coast teams all season long.
    I like them tonight & to win the series.
    Now JJ looks like he's on the Spurs....

    The key here is Parker. He seems rested and ready to step up. I see him having some big moments in this series.
