Iso Harden v. one of the all-time great teams = not much of a contest.

Hopefully the Rox can win a game - but if they don't win Game 2, you'd have to think the brooms will be out...

They may avoid the brooms but def no more than 5 games. for some reason I still got the impression GS was only in 3rd or 4th gear.

Yeah, Curry being sort of a non-factor despite 18-6-8 with over 50% shooting...feels like there's an even bigger game from them incoming. Don't think they'll sweep but dunno if the Rockets bench/role players can play up to the Warriors bench/role players.

Some bad calls both ways last night. Durant was unstoppable and as afro said, the team wasn't even clicking on all cylinders. Golden State owns the 3rd quarter and they showed it yesterday. The first half was pretty close, Houston even had a decent lead at one point. But the second half was all Golden State. 1 down, 3 to go!

Harden fouling with 8 seconds left cost Vegas millions. Beautiful

I'm really surprised this will be their first overall pick in franchise history. You think they'll hold on to it or trade it?

With a choice between a great player the coach is familiar with and has had success with, or a great player who played in nearby Arizona, can't imagine them trading it away.

True, forgot about that. Yeah passing up Deandre Ayton, especially with that "hometown" connection of him playing for Arizona, yeah, hard to pass up. Not a bad nucleus though: Devin Booker, Josh Jackson, Ayton and then add a veteran like Tyson Chandler. Phoenix might have something brewing there. Although the west is still a tougher conference than the east with the likes of Golden State, Houston, Utah, OKC, San Antonio.

That was fun.

Rox sharing the ball - EG, Ariza, and Tucker, with great games.

Please do the same in Golden State, and don't revert back to Game 1 fudge...

I don't know what's going to happen in the series, but that was a fun game 2 for me at least.

Now THAT was the game I was hoping for. Gotta admit, was a little worried after Game 1. Neither one of these is my team but I would love for a competitive(7 game) WCF since everything points to the Finals being over pretty quickly. Game 3 should be epic, outside of KD it looked like the Dubs were a little shook by Houston's response.

I can't see them trading the first pick, but I don't buy any kind of "hometown" talk with Ayton. Kid's from San Diego, was on campus for 6 months tops, and the team got smoked in the first round of the dance. I don't live in AZ, but I just can't imagine there's a lot of "Ayton's one of our own" sentiment. That being said, I'd still strongly consider him for the #1 pick.
