Both underseving but I rather see a retardre advance than a lamez retarden. A nba player that iz lamez and retarden iz just too much to take. Los Scandalous Riggers in 5.

As much as I hate to say it (but happy it's at least one of these teams overall in the WCF), the Rockets got this in 6 with CP3 hobbled. He came through tonight, but the injury isn't just going to get all of a sudden better in two days. It's going to be extremely tough for them to win more than 2 games if he can't be the best player on the team and the usual CP3 offensively and ESPECIALLY DEFENSIVELY.

If the Rockets do win though...I can't wait to rub it in all those haters faces that said the Rockets wouldn't make the playoffs before the season started...

That will make you all look like stupid assholes won't it? No playoffs to WCF.

with blake playing like he is right now they don't really need cp at 100%

and the rockets don't have the depth the spurs have. the clippers can survive with hawes and hedo playing a little bit. they won't need the starters to each play 45 minutes every game like they did against the spurs.

I was hoping for the Clippers instead of the spurs who are a bad matchup for us this season . The key is how we contain Paul. we have enough big guys in howard, josh smith, Terrence jones and even capella to stop their frontline.

We also have way, way more depth off the bench so our best bet is to wear them out with our superior depth.

It's really all about match ups...and the Clippers don't match up well with the Rockets at all at the guard position with CP3 hobbled. You need him to be able to defend Harden (he's not a post up player, so a normally quick tenacious guy like CP3 is perfect for the job even if he is undersized) regularly and there is no way he can do that with the hammy. I guess the fact that the Rockets have nothing next to Harden will allow the Clips to hide him defensively...but part of what makes CP3 so great is his defense. They need it and they aren't going to get it.
