        This game angered me beyond belief. Not only should the rockets have won that series but the finals would have been so much more Interesting. Ugh

          I played mycareer nba 2k19 with rockets, and this is the strategy we use also, only 3s and at the rims. Its so rare to see my team mate shoot mid range.

                The NBA used rim tensioning devices to make the Rockets miss all those shots and promote its California centric left leaning agenda, nuff said

                                    I liked this video until you tried to claim Harden is one of the most efficient scorers. His career line is .443 FG / .364 3PT - in Houston he’s only shot over .37 once from 3. His numbers all come from his “ability” to get to the line. Since he became a starter, he has lead the league in FT attempts 6 of those 7 years. And this isn’t because he’s Shaq and gets mauled at the rim, he created a form of flopping in which he hooks his defenders arms and kicks his legs out during every shot. He is the worst kind of flopper. A big reason he has such a nightmare postseason career. Relying on the officials to bail you out doesn’t always work in the playoffs.

                                          am I the only non-Rockets fan (actually a Blazers fan) that's willing to entertain the possibility of Houston having thrown the game and/or something bizarre happening...simply for the purpose of getting the GSW/Cavs matchup in the finals for a record 4th straight year, and back-to-back GSW titles...?

                                                                      As a Rockets fan, I've hated the massive three-point focus forever, because it may look awesome averaged over 82 games, but it may fail in one or more critical games in the playoffs where averages don't matter. Unfortunately, though, I actually watched the game, so I also know there was more to this game than missing 27 threes in a row.

                                                                      As others have pointed out, there was an egregious number of fouls not called that would have benefited the Rockets including arguably four threes by Harden, who's an 85% free throw shooter. But let's not focus on threes. There was a point in the game, either second or third quarter, in the middle of that stretch of missed threes where the Rockets DID try to go to a different scoring strategy by instead driving to the basket. It was clear they knew they were off that night behind the arc, and they DID try to change things. The refs killed that approach dead by swallowing their whistles on obvious driving fouls, forcing the team to retreat back to the three-point line where they had nothing that night.

                                                                      Yes, I cringed at every missed three, cursing the Morey-D'Antoni system more than ever, but I cursed even more at the obvious bullshit coming from the refs. It was the clearest thing I've personally seen of a fix being in, and I never go down that road when I watch games. We both did and didn't deserve to lose that game.

                                                                    • Jason Jasonson

His play had kept the Knicks in the game. Then needing a 3 pointer on the last shot of the game to win, then Knicks coach, Pat Riley gave the ball to Starks for a 3 point shot, which he missed. NY fans didn't blame him, he was the best player that night. But the papers simply said "Stark loses game"
                                                                                    I can't think of a game after that that Stark played any where near as good

                                                                                        "Live or die by the three points line" is not a good philosophy in important games. James Harden is not the most accurate 3-points shooter (.364 career is solid but not great with his shot volume) and Chris Paul is not the high volume 3-points shooter. When game is on the line (game 7 of playoffs) that players do not have the high consistency from the arc will unwillingly over adjust their shots if each shot is missed. Warriors lost to Cavs in 2016 because they were too depended from the arc which with the addition of Kevin Durant changed the entire offense. I still remember back in 1994 when John Starks missed all 11 3-points in game 7 of NBA finals when he was shooting .388 before game 7. When the flow of the game changes, the team can adapt better will be the champion.
