    Postmortem: 16 turnovers, 24 fouls, abysmal shooting and too much hero ball. That was painful to watch.

    Iggy’s absence was keenly felt. On the bright side, now they can close out the series at home!

    Ya think? I’m guessing it goes 7 and they will have to close it out in Houston.

    Told you I couldn’t figure out what to do with Durant and Thompson today.

    Dont under estimate Houston strong after katrina the saints won the superbowl after the marathon attack in boston the red sox won the world series after this game all the players said the same thing houston strong the same thing is going on with the las vegas knights in hockey all the players point out how the tragic vegas shooting has brought the city together to rally around and motivate the team houston is not going to be an easy out GS we have a problem Houston also went thru hurricane harvey last year the city has been thru alot the us against the world mind set is very motivating talent wise GS should win but Houston will be electric in game 5 after the tragic events santa fe and everything else the city has been thru being down 12-0 with there season on the line this team with less talent but may win this series

    Durant needs to be priced around 9K and Thompson needs to be about $5,700 before I can seriously consider playing them on FD based on playoff performance.

    For what it’s worth one of my lineups last night was Harden mvp dray star cp3 pro and egordon and bell in UTIL. So the perfect lineup but with egordon and pjtucker switched.

    In case you were wondering, it was worth two dollars. I picked the perfect lineup last wcf game too but changed it out. Only submitted one lineup that day too so it was a bad blow.

    Sorry this is not my blog but just musing.

    Boston will blow out Cleveland tomorrow, that is what I think. We could actually have a Houston – Boston final, although I still think it will be Golden State and Boston.

    No way Boston wins the series.

    I was thinking the same thing those rookies (Jaylen & Tatum) will fold with easy fouls

    I’m really hoping for 6, not sure my nerves can take 7 games…

    I think having their season on the line was uppermost in the Rockets’ minds, not the school shooting.
    But I get your point, and there may be something to it…in the end, I believe the Warriors beat themselves.

    I just don’t see Cleveland being able to win a road game.

    Fading Lebron, hoping he puts up less than 60 DK points. In fact, fading Love and Horford too. 4 Celtics and 2 Cavs.

    GL tonight.

    Was in Cali over the weekend. Went to game 3 GS vs Hou. Didn’t work on any lineups until I was on my way to the game, so I ended up missing both main contests on FD and DK. Not upset about FD, as I didn’t place (in the contests I did join).

    On DK however, I entered the same lineup 3 times in the $3 10k And-1 (was rushing and do not recall that), used that same lineup in the $25k Big Jam, and for some reason a different lineup in the $1 2k And-1.

    Much to my surprise, after the game:

    Tied for 2nd in the 25k
    Tied for 4th in the 10k
    Tied for 57th in the 2k (would have tied for 3rd had I used the same lineup as the others)

    It’s been downhill since Sunday though :-(

    Lebron will be high owned and score enough that he should be safe.

    At least on FD

    Finished in a tie for first in the four point play along with half of mainland china. I went to bed not knowing, the scoring corrections did me a favor.

    Boston crushes Clev tonight in a lower scoring game. Was going to post yesterday how games tend to get lower scoring as a series goes on for the obvious reasons. I think peripherals become a little more important. Make sure you are SMART about factoring that in.

    I can’t believe the spread on the game is Clev -1, going to pound Bos. Recency bias is clouding how big home court is for both teams.

    I’d love to see 2 teams other than the warriors and the lebrons In the finals

    Rockets plan to honor students with video tribute and free tickets in game 5. also before game 4 chris paul called the playoffs minor compared to what people are dealing with in santa fe in presser also the first thing mentioned in post game interview so Houston strong is a real thing in the city

    Unless the entire city of Houston is going to be on the court tomorrow, this strikes me as emotional twaddle.
    May the best team win.

  • tmarohl

    All the pundits seem to think Cleveland rolls tonight. I must say I disagree with them. Cleveland has shown no ability to win on the road this post season. I expect it to be like every other Cleveland road game. Lebron get’s his, no defense from the Cav’s, and guys like J.R. Smith and other role players are invisible.

    Honestly baffled the spread is Clev -1. There is an ebb and flow to most playoff series. Good teams bounce back from road losses @ home, great players bounce back from poor games. It’s not a 100%, but it’s as close as you can get. Best guess is Bostons young guys don’t look young tonight and Clev’s role players look bad.

    IDK, it seemed pretty obvious to me that Harden was thinking about the victims during the second quarter.
