Ugh I am dreading this series. Honestly as long as our guys play decently I can't even be mad.
Only way Rockets can win is the same way they won last time... Hang around till the 4th and get crazy hot in the last few minutes of the game. Otherwise, it's going to be a sweep.
Prediction 1 - PBev gets nationally recognized as the "Russ stopper"
A guy who failed to stop Steve Blake is going to be a Russ stopper?
We had a better chance against SAS than we do OKC though.
Thabo goes for 30, Russ gets 45 and KD chills on the bench sipping champagne.
Westbrook shoots a lot so most of his shots are gonna be bricks
What sucks is that OKC could be the most hostile and difficult arena to play in.
Do you enjoy watching a puppy get kicked ? That is how this series will be. Had our chance to go against either the Spurs or the Nuggets but we blew it.
Although I know Thunder heavily favored, I am guessing, this is the first round match up, they did not want to see.
WE HAVE NO CHANCE IN THIS SERIES UNLESS DURANT AND WESTBROOK GET INJURED IN GAME ONE
it's going at least 4 games. Unless we get beat so bad we forfeit the rest.
Damn it must be hard playing in that arena.
6-0 games over lets rest starters for next game
And the boos for Harden have started. Starting to pick up in intensity. This is what the NBA wanted.
Gawd!do I hate OKC fans
Wow I am sorry, but OKC fans > Rockets fans
We will never have fans like these...
Wussell Westwook can't be stopped.
Lmao I feel bad for Harden watching this game. Went from playing with Westbrook and Durant to this.
OKC getting a lot of calls thus far.
It's so unfair Ibaka has range now.
Superstar calls. I thought they weren't calling that rip through BS anymore
Make Westbrook Shoots should be our motto
I wonder if Morey would every sign Westbrook Given his “bad” shooting patterns
Yesss keep shooting midrange jumpers Westbrook!! Help your team lose!!!!!!!
Lin is fast, but WB makes him look slow
No ***** he's in transition. Westbrook is the most athletically gifted point guard in the league.
Lucky that OKC only shoot at 31% or we're already down 20.
Wow, our "bigs" are getting owned by Kendrick Perkins? Really? We're ****Ed
HArden on D is always hilarious
A cardboard box would play better defense than harden
Lol. What a flop. it’s like harden got hit with a nuclear punch!
I hope westbrook get into brick mode then we might have a chance
Our guards are scared of Mt. Ibaka
Derek fisher is prbly the nba player (other than gasol) that I would most like to stab in the forehead There's just no denying he is a giant d*****bag and I wish very very very bag things against him
It is seriously not fair playing them They foul us an its a foul on us
Ibaka kills our production in the paint., and Perkins as well.
I hope collison sprains an ankle
Jackson is totally useless I think people forget that the thunder bench is a bit of a liability
Is Durant going to foul out our entire starting lineup?
Rockets will never win a playoff series if Harden doesn't improve or play D
All of our starters are going to be in foul trouble with the way they're favoring the Thunder
Breathe on Durant, get a foul.
I hate Fisher with a passion... That coattail-riding rodent. I don't hate him as much as Matt Harpring, but I hate him just a tad bit more than the Gasol brothers.
We are overmatched. Durant is so good. Too good. Feels like he's toying with us. Dat mid range shot.
Hardens got his ankles broken on an off ball jab step LOLOLOL we should replace him with a safety cone on defense.
Martin still doesn’t play defense and collison has no chance against asik
Collison and fisher are our mvps so far
Our best lineup tonight Would probably be a combination of 2nd round picks and undrafted free agents
Bev can't box out those huge okc bigs!
Ibaka is so unfair
Refs showed up to protect the favorite.
Gotta rely on the refs to get to the finals?with all their pedigree?LMAO
It's hilarious watching Martin and Fisher try to defend.
Is this Kevin Martin's first playoff game? Martin helping out his old team tonight
This is why OKC will get swept by the Heat or lose in 5 at best. No ball movement. Only ISO ball and jumpers all game long. Also occasionally KD will flail his arms around to draw a foul. That's it. OKC=overrated and they get the 2nd most ref help in the league along with the Lakers.
Ibaka is a killer.
Freaking Asik. He must really have the worst hands in the NBA. How can somebody be so butterfingers?
Lin is horrible
Smith is competing with Lin for whose worse today.
Greg Smith has only dunk, no defense, no rebound, on offense.
Not a lin hater, I'm a rockets lover, this guy isnt part of the rockets future
Harden is a selfish ****
When Harden ever plays D, He plays dumb D!
We hate our own players more than OKC
Perkins has one of those faces that just pisses me off.
Ibaka is playing like he's effing durant, WTF?
Yup Perkins can run the fast break better than anyone on the Rockets
Will somebody give Westbrook some hard fouls? He just goes to the rim and everybody runs out of his way.
Lin is so bad this game he is trending on twitter. Ouch.
Oklahoma City doesn't even deserve a major league sports franchise... It's a nothing town... And what's up with the matching shirts? Looks like a freaking college game.
You cant even touch them, it's a foul
Problem is when Asik and Parsons are out The refs conveniently decided they should be taken out for OKC to have a chance
Moving screen on Perkins and Ibaka all night Asik is only one called for it
OMG is that Serge Ibaka or Lebron James
And the refs will kill any comeback we try to make.
I don't think the officiating has been particularly bad. Not good, but not bad. We’re just seeing the gulf between #1 and rebuilt within one offseason #8.
The Thunder are clowning around. Perkins driving. Ibaka launching threes. A bunch of a**holes.
They don't respect us when Perkins leads fastbreaks
They're not a**holes. If we don't like it we can stop it. We aren’t.
If Durant played in any other era he'd get broken in half. He's such a waif.
At this point all Durant has to do is drive and throw his arms up. Or as I like to say it The “dwyane wade” drive
Harden is getting hit
They don't want to call it BC he's not Durant.
Dude, did ibaka eat Kevin love?
He's channeling his inner Lebron James
I hate him Because he has improved so much and I did not think that would be the case.
Westbrook knows we're there for the taking lmao. Dude is going to the rim at will.
If we had beaten the flippin SUNS then we wouldn't be in this situation
I would trade fisher for lin straight up now
We suck. OKC fans suck too. They boo too damn much and Asik didn't even travel. I hate how they try to influence the officiating when it's a close game. Only way the Rockets have a chance is if Ibaka, Westbrook, and Durant all get food poisoning or get injured.
Holy smokes we were awful I knew we would be bad but not that bad.
We definitely need a better coach next season, if you want a fighting chance in the playoffs.
If they lose 4 games in a row like this McHale will be gone. Positive thinking, positive thinking.
They're putting in DFish? Someone get Royce White to come deck him. For Scola.
If OKC doesn't win it all, then I will be convinced this NBA era is weak as hell.
They probably won't. The Heat are just better.
I hate fisher so damned much
I hope DFish spontaneously combusts. What a piece of shit.
What I want from the rest of the game Derek fisher to get the ball slapped back in his face and have his lip cut
This game reminds me why I drink.
I don't want Kevin Martin to get a ring. Seeing him grin because he is finally where he belongs (a 5th option) is annoying as hell.
Winning so easily might make OKC overconfident, let's hope
I blame OKCs low atltitude.. Too much oxygen to the brain
Almost the first thing out of KD's mouth tonight: "We've got to do a lot better." Lord no! He wants to humiliate us even further?
That stadium in OKC was terrific. Their fans were great, and hopefully one day Toyota Center can become a stadium where their are no seats empty at tip-off
Brooks totally outcoached McHale in this game. Brooks packed the paint and took out penetration from ISOs.
Well so much for the Scott Brooks cant coach rumor, he had that team prepared to take away all our strengths, lets see if McHale can counter?
Yea whatever OKC you beat the Rockets, idgaf. That's why our D-league affiliate just knocked out your d-league affiliate in the playoffs!... **** yea!
Thabeet must be happy today to be able to dunk on Rockets.
OKC made the Rockets look like a JV team... Just too many options. Westbrook is crazy good when he has his head straight as well; he's probably the most athletic guard in the league in terms of speed, power, and leaping ability.
