    Will it also fuel Chris Paul’s hamstring to stay healthy 😐?

    +Pat LThey won games and earned 2nd , they also damn near beat the warriors head on and took their spot for #1 in the west multiple times. That's not "overrated", you just don't like them jackass

    How is 14-5 Is not that impressive,but 31-11 Is "balling"🤔

  • David Chou

     (5 days ago)

    Same reason running a short sprint and a mile at the same speed are differently impressive.

  • p3rryn

     (5 days ago)

    well percentage wise, 31-11 is better. more games played as well

    What about when rockets went to oracle n beat them with out Harden 🤷🏾‍♂️

  • Daveed da sick

     (5 days ago)

    But how do we convince harden not to play so the rockets can win the series

  • George Foley

    Had all those top 5 players but won by ONLY single digits against little old Houston Rockets. The point is that Gs struggled last season to win the conference finals and they are struggling this season to win against Houston. They are the champs we give them that, BUT they have a big hurdle to jump over this season. Houston just not going to let them take it this time. Houston have a very big chip on there shoulders and you can tell.

    Rockets on fire. I anticipate a rematch in the Conf Finals

    You better pray GSW win the finals, otherwise they'll replace Draymond Green with Kawhi Leonard.

  • _CRUSH _

     (Mar 13, 2019)

    I think Kawhi would rather play against GS rather than playing with them

    Rockets beat them without jh and another game without cp already.

    Warriors didn't have Curry that first game the Rockets won and then they didn't have Klay the second game.
