    Also, the Melo effect is real.

    Nah, Houston's success last year was built on:
    Harden
    CP3
    Versatile wing defenders
    Capella

    With injuries and suspensions this year plus the loss of 2 of the 3 key versatile wing defenders, they've been missing 2-3 of those ingredients on most nights.

    But overall they've dropped back to the pack anyway. Closer to the Nuggets and Jazz now than the Warriors.
    Rockets fell back, Warriors added Cousins. yay!!!...

    Something some sleep doctor invented, and ESPN is running with. The higher score the more brutal your game is due to the schedule. A score of 8 or higher is bad. We have one coming up. The second game of the B2B against Utah on Nov 5. Chances are we lose that one.
    Yeah, I was hoping to go 3-1 on the trip cause that's looking like a loss.

    Still 3-1 on ANY Western road trip was unheard of a few years ago for us, no matter who the opponents were

    There’s a Melo effect but Houston without Harden isn’t really Houston

    We lost pretty badly against the Bucks with our star player out as well.

    http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/2...m-lose-2018-19

    The Blazers have the dubious honor of kicking off the 2018-19 Schedule Alert campaign. This game will mark their fourth game in six days, their third game in four days (all on the road) and the second of a back-to-back set with overnight travel across time zones. Sheesh. After facing the Pacers in Indianapolis, the Trail Blazers will head out that night for Houston -- gaining an hour along the way -- to face the Rockets the next night. Meanwhile, the Rockets will enter this game with a three-day rest advantage.
    Houston without Harden I guess is a lottery team. So I guess he really deserved that MVP last year.

    Rockets are terrible. Portland had one of those "schedule losses". Playing 3 games in 4 nights, on the road, etc.. and yet they beat Houston by 19.

    The "Melo" Affect is really strong this season.
    We lost pretty badly against the Bucks with our star player out as well.

    Klay Thompson just scored 52 in 26 mins and these people turned this segment to a Klay/Lakers segment. Wtf? It seems like ESPN wants to see all the best players play for the Lakers.

    That's their agenda.

    Not that I wish for injuries, but if one of Steph/Durant/Klay goes down, then everything's wide open.
    I think the Raptors can take Curry/Klay/KD. On paper, we match up very well with them. Lowry on Curry, Green on Klay, Kawhi on KD. You can throw OG on Klay or KD, you can throw Siakam on KD. A lot of versatile defenders. It will be tough in a 7 game series, but i think there is a possibility.

    Now if Cousins comes back plays even 50% of how he is capable of playing, then there is basically no chance.
