Do you remember how you felt in the moments approaching Game 7 in the 2018 Western Conference Finals? I don’t. I don’t remember feeling bad, but I don’t remember feeling good. Maybe I was even excited to watch?
Whatever I felt, I just know that it felt better than this. Because the Rockets had a chance to knock down a behemoth. It didn’t matter that they were the No. 1 seed that season; they weren’t the better team that series. They had a chance to topple the greatest team ever assembled. So, that’s probably why I didn’t feel so anxious ahead of that game — they didn’t have the risk of embarrassment.
That’s why I feel so anxious ahead of this game. There’s a lot at stake for Houston to lose here. They’re the better team. They shouldn’t have been here in the first place. Yet, here we are. Personally, I don’t care for the “win or lose, the Thunder should feel good” talk. They can have the feel-good story, just send their asses home.
Anyways, what’s your prediction for tonight’s game? What does Houston have to do to pull out this win? Most importantly, how are you feeling?
And last, but certainly not least, LET’S GO ROCKETS!
