Default Rockets playoff chances?

Not much of a basketball fan, usually don’t pay much attention to it till now, anyways just saw where the Rockets blew a golden opportunity to clinch the 2 seed in the west and it wouldn’t suprise me if they bowed out of the playoffs early. Harden doesn’t seem to have the clutch gene in his dna. Just my two cents, what’s y’all’s thoughts?

I hope they lose 4 straight and go home early. I watched the game last night and was screaming for OKC. I just can't stand the attitude of the Rockets' players. Its either the spurs or the Thunder in the 1st round, Either way, I hope they get blown out

They will play GS again in the conference championship. That will be the best series of the entire playoffs.

Played basketball in my youth , coached some of my older sons , but i still have 2 teenagers that play here in The Houston Metro for their school and in AAU . I cant believe how much the game has changed ; for the worse . I see crowds and coaches going crazy over a crossover dribble or a dunk that is missed but the guy jumped over people . I don't get it ?

There seems to be little to no team aspect and the fundamentals don't seem to be taught here anymore . Fortunately these two boys started out playing while we lived in Australia and learned the basics but are often called " Old School " because they know how to dribble , pass , and rebound as a team player .

Yep , for the most part . We are blessed with a Great School Coach and finally found an AAU Coach / Program that cares about the kids more than most and is Good Christian Man . Although we do spend some weekends in an “ interesting “ environment to say the least .

They will not get out of the West. I don’t think they will make it pass the second round.

They’ll play Golden State so they may not. But it will be a good series.

You are correct. That series will not be automatic for the warriors. Golden state will probably win but Houston is good enough to beat tbem.

If they can beat golden state then they can beat anyone at this point in time. If CP3 stays healthy all the way through we stand a dang good chance to make it to the championship

Yep. That’s what got them last year. This team is way better on the defensive side of the ball.

The playoffs are a re-run of the last few years. Rockets have about a 25% chance of beating the Warriors. However wins this matchup has about a 90% chance of taking it all.

CP3 is not the deciding factor this year, it's Capela! If Capela can stay healthy and Hardin is on, they stand a good chance of beating Golden State. Golden State does not match up with the Rockets well.

Spurs looked good the other day too! I'm calling Rockets in 5 against Utuh and in 6 against Golden State!

Rockets attitude is no where near as crappy as the Thunder.

I agree with the Capela notion without a doubt, the kid is a beast!

I still think that we need a healthy CP3 to lead the team and manage the court when Harden goes into historical playoff form.

I also hope that leads to Harden being able to take some minutes off each game to avoid the playoff performances we have seen from James in the past.

Thank you for bringing some sanity to this thread. Rockets are loaded and were ridiculed with injuries early. Imo, Harden has turned up his intensity on all aspects of his game. He used to only care about the offense but that has changed.

Cousins went down last night and probably done for the season. That only helps the Rockets.

Agreed. However, the Rockets won't be playing The Warriors in the conference Championship, they will get them in the second round and the winner of that matchup goes to the conference Championship

Would that still be the case if the Spurs pulled off the upset? I forget how the NBA does it.

I think they will do everything possible to win in four. They should have realized after last year they need to give CP all the rest he can get before playing the Warriors.

Will Harden be able to stand up after that devestating shot he took the other night? What was that, a 7mag from the rafters, Creedmore maybe?
