    Great start, DW.

    Hoping for a strong effort, but I'm bracing for a 1st quarter Houston free throw parade. Might need to start drinking early...

    Here is the link that I use. Click stats and it shows how they have called against the spread along with how they have called the last ten games for each ref.

    Tonight, we're going to get Houston's best shot. Harden won't have another shit game. We can expect the crowd to be rabid as they know this is the key game of the series for Houston. Finally, we can expect some 8 on 5 and serious home cooking. All of those things will be working in concert against us.

    What the Blazers, first and foremost, must do is not let any of the above get to them. They are going to come out super agressive and try to put us out in the first five minutes. We simply need to play our game, and our subs need to be ready. I think our starters will find themselves in a heap of foul trouble tonight and we're going to have to lean on our bench. If we do, we may have a chance to steal Game Two. And if we do, this series will likely be over as the Rockets haven't proven they have the kind of mental toughness to come back from a hole that deep.

    My key for tonight? We need Good Mo. Williams will need to give us a scoring spark off the bench.

    Pretty much how I see it. I'm super nervous about this game because the rockets can't lose it and will do everything they can to win it and i'm not sure if we have enough firepower to take their best shot if the reffing isn't going our way.

    One thing that Houston really didn't have going in Game One was their three point shooting. It opens up everything else for them. It wasn't like they didn't get looks, it's just that nothing was falling. Of course, that was the case for us, too, but they need their outside game to work more than we do.

    I expect them to shoot 40% from three tonight. We'll have to find a way to limit that damage.

    It's all house money. Mission 1 is accomplished and tonight's game is just grinding out for the Platinum Achievement Trophy. Loose and Easy and have fun with the Rockets. I think if we come out all smiles and having a good time...Hi-Fives and even tell Houston when they make a good play "HEY, that was damn nice!" we'll totally mess with them and have them frustrated to no end

    You have to get greedy. Lillard needs to keep that up in the minds of his teammates. You don't win a series by coasting through a game because you're up in the series. Real champions try to win every game.

    I would rather let HOU out to an early lead then do anything that could let the refs put some BS fouls on our starters. For the first quarter we have to absolutely abstain from reaching, stay stationary on all screens, and keep the arms straight up when contesting a shot. If that results in HOU shooting 60%+ and getting a double-digit lead, then so be it. Better to let them think it's going to be easy, early, then storm back on them. No lead is safe, but we're going to need our starters to be able to play rough at the end of the game.

    I think we'll get Good Mo tonight - 12-18 points. And I highly doubt he'll do it, but I really hope Stotts plays Barton instead of Wright. Although, Wright might be due for a good game - how long has it been?
