The Warriors currently hold a 2-0 series lead against the Rockets.
Houston has done a lot of talking the past two seasons of wanting to face/beat the Warriors. Last year, you could say Chris Paul’s injury was the reason the Rockets lost in Game 7, but I’m calling bullshit. First off, remember the Warriors were missing Andre Iguodala. Second, and more importantly, Houston was 7 for 44 from three, including 27 misses in a row, in a 9-point loss will kill you. Imagine they had made three more of those? We might be talking about the Warriors collapsing. Instead, we talk about the refs being the cause of the Rockets choking and not because they’re simply not built for this.

In this edition of “They Should’ve Been a Dynasty,” we explore recent NFL teams that should have won more than they ultimately did.
Remember the rules, I see a dynasty as the following: a team that has won at least three championships in a 10-year window. It can be a smaller window (i.e. a three-peat), but I think the simplest barometer is winning three championships within a certain window of time, showing that you were the best of your sport, and you showed it repeatedly.
We just witnessed another GREAT week in sports. In the NHL, there were three Game 7s, games in which the Bruins, Sharks, and Hurricanes advanced. Boston won 5-1; San Jose was trailing 3-0 before scoring 4 goals in less than 5 minutes to take the lead back, but Vegas tied the game to force OT, where San Jose ultimately won; in D.C., the Hurricanes beat the defending champions in double OT, another upset in a first round full of them. The NBA was not without it’s fair share of dramatics. Damian Lillard had one of the best closeout games in recent NBA history, capped off by one of the coldest buzzer beaters (and a wave OKC). Portland, as well as Boston, Milwaukee, Toronto, Philly, and Houston moved onto the second round. The Clippers forced a Game 6 on Wednesday behind a great performance from Lou Williams. The Spurs won at home to force a Game 7 in their series against the Denver Nuggets.
The Eastern Conference Semifinals will begin on tomorrow, as Toronto will host the 76ers. Game 7 of the Spurs/Nuggets series will take place after that game at 10:00 PM. The Clippers host the Warriors for Game 6 of their series tonight at 10:00 PM.
Also, congratulations to those drafted in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Rounds 2-3 will take place starting at 7:00 PM tonight, and the remainder of the draft will be tomorrow starting at noon.
This used to be a prestigious job… but now? It seems like they’ll give it to anyone.
From the Don Pat Riley, to Phil Jackson, the Lakers have had some of the best coaches in NBA history (those two won 9 championships in LA). Hell, lets put the Guru of Go Paul Westhead in there (1 championship in LA). You see that list? Do you really think Kidd deserves to even sniff that list?
