It’s the Pivotal Game Three Thread. For Pivotal Game Three.

Last game the Lakers pretty much had it all go their way, and the Rockets nearly came back and took it. The Rockets shot well, but the Lakers shot insanely well. Rockets fans have to be hoping that sort of Laker shooting performance won’t continue.

Also, with a flagrant foul now assessed on Anthony Davis for his obvious nutshot on Jeff Green, can we all agree he’s a jerk? He’s in a close battle with Kawhi Leonard for “Least Compelling NBA Star”.

Also, like a dithering, ineffective, parent, the NBA also chided James Harden with a technical foul ex post facto. Because both sides and all. One of the weakest arguments in human history.

Russell Westbrook must play better. The Lakers must shoot worse.

Let’s see how it goes.

Late Breaking News - Danuel House is apparently out of tonight’s game for personal reasons.
