Default Houston Must Be Pretty Bad If They Lost to Portland

Yea, give spurs credit for being on the verge of sweeping them. But Houston might be stuck with this first round clunker of a team for a long time. Never found Portland impressive at all. Aldridge went off, but he is back to being his typical inefficient self. And the rest of the team aside from Lillard is pretty meh. No ability to play defense at all. Rockets are in trouble.

Harden and Howard were exposed big time.

No excuses for a team with the best center and the "best" SG (LOL) of the league getting eliminated by a pretender who is getting swept in the next round.

Why didnīt the DPOY Howard lock up LMA? Look at what Splitter and Duncan are doing to him.

Portland are still a very good team. Spurs are just very good and exposed blazers lack of a bench.

"Very good"? I don't really see it. They got nice pieces in Lillard and Aldridge, but they are never going to beat team in the playoffs that plays defense

It's about matchups. Portland has 2 guys the Rockets couldn't guard.
Meanwhile Houston would be able to man up the Spurs...

Nah, Houston did just suck. Can't believe some people actually thought they were potential contenders

Doesn't work like that.

The playoffs are about match-ups. The team you get in the first round could be an infinitely more difficult match-up for your team than the team you get in the Conference finals.

But you know that already.

parker would tear houston apart, and if houston couldnt even contain matthews and batum, i can only imagine what ginobli and the three point shooters on the spurs would do to them

They won 54 games in the loaded West and got to the 2nd round in their first playoff run. Impressive for a young team. They just need to keep improving.

problem is houston plays 4 on 5 constantly
on offense its because beverley is a dleague level player at best.
on defense its because harden doesnt even try. make that 3 on 5 since parsons doesnt try either.
than they have a disadvantage in coaching against every opponent.
cant win like that
