    Game 1 of Rockets-Warriors... holy crap. Harden goes INSANE, scores 41 on what may be the best D in the league, the Rockets overall play pretty well... and they still lose by 13.

    And that's with Curry probably not even back to 100%, either.

    As they say, 'adjustments will be made' by the Rockets coaching staff. But the story so far seems to be 'ball movement beats isolation basketball'. Even when you have someone as incredible at iso ball as James Harden is.

    And, I'm almost a little freaked out by how good the Warriors are, especially considering how they stumbled into the postseason... injury-riddled, subpar efforts and defense, and seemingly uninterested. It's like night and day.

    Meanwhile, the other alleged 'switch flipper', the Cavs, look like they're in for a long, tough series against BOS.

    Game 2 will be fascinating, in both series.

    I would say that Durant, and how he shreds defensive switches, is the key to the story so far. He looked guarded on many shots, but really when the defender is a few inches shorter his jump shots are effectively uncontested.

    I don't see how Houston stops Durant without getting drubbed by the other GS weapons.

    It makes no sense to call someone who follows no team, does not care about any team, and rarely watches a "fan".

    If you say so.

    Wow. Houston out-Warrior'ed the Warriors tonight. Much more ball movement, much higher pace. And total payback.

    But, the series goes back to the Bay now. If GS holds home court, they'll be up 3-1.

    A big 'if', granted, if Houston keeps playing like this and/or Steve Kerr can't make the proper adjustments.

    Good to see that this may not be yet another easy Warriors coronation. Houston upped their level, now it's on GS to do same. And I do think they have a higher ceiling than Houston (or anyone else) does.

    It's just a matter of, 'Can they get there'?

    My vote for the most fun-to-watch team this postseason? Boston (with Philly a close second).

    They may be the team that sends LeBron from Cleveland for a second time.

    Sooo... how do I get a 'Scary Terry' t-shirt?

    The crazy momentum swings continue in the Warrior-Rockets conference finals.

    Game 3 was a 41-point blowout, as GS utterly annihilated hapless Houston.

    Guess we'll get a close game in the series eventually, but who knows when.

    Curry also seems fully back, finally. But Igoudala is likely out for Game 4, and he's part of GS's 'death lineup'.

    Game 4 feels like Houston's last stand, i.e. an absolute must-win.
    Would expect them to play well in it.
