Rockets vs. Clippers game thread: Now or never

The Rockets can't afford to go gown 2-0 in L.A.

Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports

Don't have much more to say that we haven't said already. The Rockets are dead in the water in this series if they don't win tonight. As of 5 p.m., there's no word on Chris Paul, other than Doc Rivers saying he "doubts" CP3 plays.

Anything resembling Game 1's performance will not be tolerated. This team is too good to turn the ball over 24 times twice in a row, and James Harden is too good to let J.J. Redick stop him. It's time for everyone to come together and play well, because it bares repeating: this team hasn't had it firing on all cylinders for 48 minutes yet in the playoffs, if at all this season.
