    Great start, DW.

    Hoping for a strong effort, but I'm bracing for a 1st quarter Houston free throw parade. Might need to start drinking early...

    Who gets ejected first for telling the refs to call it fair? Lopez? Trob? Stotts? Matthews? Maybe we are in for a dick punch, we know how our Frenchy hates flopping bitches.

    James Capers, Jason Phillips, Zach Zarba. A more pliable crew. Fewer "strong personalities."

    Thank you sir. I like it, feel much more comfortable than when I find out who was officiating the last game.

    Re: ROUND 1, GAME 2: BLAZERS @ ROCKETS - 4/23/14, WEDNESDAY, 6:30 PM (PST), TNT & KG

    Tonight, we're going to get Houston's best shot. Harden won't have another shit game. We can expect the crowd to be rabid as they know this is the key game of the series for Houston. Finally, we can expect some 8 on 5 and serious home cooking. All of those things will be working in concert against us.

    What the Blazers, first and foremost, must do is not let any of the above get to them. They are going to come out super agressive and try to put us out in the first five minutes. We simply need to play our game, and our subs need to be ready. I think our starters will find themselves in a heap of foul trouble tonight and we're going to have to lean on our bench. If we do, we may have a chance to steal Game Two. And if we do, this series will likely be over as the Rockets haven't proven they have the kind of mental toughness to come back from a hole that deep.

    My key for tonight? We need Good Mo. Williams will need to give us a scoring spark off the bench.

    Pretty much how I see it. I'm super nervous about this game because the rockets can't lose it and will do everything they can to win it and i'm not sure if we have enough firepower to take their best shot if the reffing isn't going our way.

    One thing that Houston really didn't have going in Game One was their three point shooting. It opens up everything else for them. It wasn't like they didn't get looks, it's just that nothing was falling. Of course, that was the case for us, too, but they need their outside game to work more than we do.

    I expect them to shoot 40% from three tonight. We'll have to find a way to limit that damage.
