The Rockets Had A Hell Of A Chance, And Then The Warriors Woke Up The Rockets Had A Hell Of A Chance, And Then The Warriors Woke Up

It feels weird to say this about a team that lost a road playoff game by 29 points, but, man, the Rockets blew it. Or, anyway, that’s the glass-is-half-empty take: Even without Chris Paul, even on the road, even going against an unbelievably loaded Warriors team desperate to stave off elimination, the Rockets had a…

Chris Paul Is Out For Game 6, And Everything Is Grim Again  Chris Paul Is Out For Game 6, And Everything Is Grim Again 

The verdict is in on Chris Paul, who was hurting a whole lot at the end of the Rockets’ Game 5 win: He’s out for Saturday.

The Most Painful Thing For Chris Paul Is Having To Watch The Most Painful Thing For Chris Paul Is Having To Watch

Chris Paul is, let’s say, a competitive person, probably to an unpleasant degree. He is also among the all-time greats at his position and finally, in his 13th season, making a deep run into the postseason. And he is also someone who, in the final minute of a conference finals Game 5, with a mere four-point lead over…

If The Warriors Are Going To Die, They Should At Least Die Pretty If The Warriors Are Going To Die, They Should At Least Die Pretty

The pre-series nightmare, for anyone who is a Warriors fan or particularly despises the Rockets’ brand of basketball, went something like this: The Warriors, a free-flowing, elegant offensive team that so often makes the experience of watching them feel transcendent, would be outpaced by the cold calculations of the…

The Rockets Have An Answer For The Warriors The Rockets Have An Answer For The Warriors

In a game that saw James Harden go 0-for-11 from three point range, the Houston Rockets didn’t have to reckon with disaster. Instead, they beat the Warriors with defense, winning Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals 98-94 by neutralizing some of the toughest-to-guard players in the NBA.

The NBA Shouldn't Get Credit Just For Not Being The NFL The NBA Shouldn't Get Credit Just For Not Being The NFL

Ahead of his team’s Game 5 matchup with the Rockets tonight, Warriors coach Steve Kerr took time to blast the NFL for its new rule banning players from kneeling during the national anthem. Kerr called the policy, which compels all NFL players to stand for the anthem or stay in the locker room while it’s played,…

The NBA Playoffs Have Been So Boring, And Last Night Was A New Low The NBA Playoffs Have Been So Boring, And Last Night Was A New Low

These here NBA Playoffs have been terminally boring. They have been so dull and charmless and forgettable that the one night of actual exciting basketball fans have enjoyed somehow still featured two teams taking 3-0 leads in second-round series. Even Rockets-Warriors, this season’s most anticipated series and de…

The Warriors Have Been Infected By Houston's Brain Worms And It's Ruining The West Finals The Warriors Have Been Infected By Houston's Brain Worms And It's Ruining The West Finals

Okay, yes, goddammit yes, I was wrong, the Houston Rockets, who tied the Western Conference Finals at two games apiece last night in Oakland, have a chance to win the series. A frighteningly strong one, if like me you break out in hives at the prospect of a Larry O’Brien trophy consecrating into canonical Championship…

The Rockets Refused To Die And Tied The Series The Rockets Refused To Die And Tied The Series

Despite some early hiccups and, um, premature pronouncements of doom, the Rockets held a 53-46 lead going into halftime in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Warriors. For the most optimistic of Rockets fans, that advantage might’ve been enough to nervously hope for an even series. Everyone else was…

The Rockets Are Short-Circuiting

One of the coldest, most ruthlessly efficient scorers in the NBA froze up on a wide-open three that Draymond Green was cool to let him have. P.J. Tucker eventually missed his own three to end the possession, but if you’re wondering how badly the Warriors own James Harden and the Rockets right now, here’s your answer:

You Don't Have To Get Cute With The Rockets You Don't Have To Get Cute With The Rockets

The Rockets are coming after Steph Curry. Through the first three games of their series against they Warriors, they have been committed to one idea that they seem to think will give them the best chance to win: use a pick to switch Curry onto the ballhandler on every offensive possession, and then wait for James…

You Have To Love A Big Steph Curry Game  You Have To Love A Big Steph Curry Game 

The start of Steph Curry’s Game 3 went much like his Game 1 and Game 2, and by the end of the first half he was 3-of-11 from the field. At that point, Curry was shooting a combined 3-of-20 from three-point range for the series, and it was starting to look like the takeover everyone had been waiting for was never…

Chris Paul's Yo-Yo Dribble Never Gets Old Chris Paul's Yo-Yo Dribble Never Gets Old

Last night, the Houston Rockets blew past the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals by getting a little more lively on offense and moving the ball. That is cool and good for them, but let’s be honest: the best thing about the game was Chris Paul’s dribbling.

Steph Curry Will Have To Take Over At Some Point Steph Curry Will Have To Take Over At Some Point

It’s been over two weeks since Steph Curry returned from his knee injury to make the Warriors fully operational for the latter stages of the playoffs, and his results have been mixed. He made the Warriors look invincible once again in his first game back against the Pelicans, but he’s been up and down in the five…

The Desperate Rockets Beat The Warriors, And It Was Actually Fun To Watch The Desperate Rockets Beat The Warriors, And It Was Actually Fun To Watch

The Rockets can pass! That’s the most stunning takeaway from their 127-105 win against the Warriors tonight, which evened the Western Conference Finals at one game apiece and introduced a prettier, more kinetic version of the Rockets than the team that won 65 games in the regular season. Game 2 saw Houston move away…

The Rockets Have Nothing For Kevin Durant The Rockets Have Nothing For Kevin Durant

The Rockets had a plan. They were going to force Steph Curry to defend James Harden one-on-one, stick longer defenders on Curry to harass him on the perimeter, use Clint Capela’s length to disrupt Draymond Green’s pick-and-roll maneuvers, and pounce on any defensive lapses by kicking it out to their army of shooters.…

The Warriors Are Better Than The Rockets The Warriors Are Better Than The Rockets

Look. If we are being honest with each other, here, let’s acknowledge what we all know: The Rockets are 100 percent dead in this series, have virtually no chance whatsoever even to push it to a seventh game, and could spend Game 2 jump-kicking each other in the face for all the good they can do by even trying to make…

Warriors Edge Out The Rockets In The Game 1 Everybody Expected Warriors Edge Out The Rockets In The Game 1 Everybody Expected

In a game that saw the two best teams in basketball each play exactly how you’d expect them to, the Golden State Warriors beat the Rockets in Houston, 119-106, to take a 1-0 lead in the Western Conference Finals. Despite the best efforts of James Harden and his 41 points, the Warriors managed to expose the Rockets’…
