No congrats from me. It would have been nice if CP0 ever had a performance like that to take the Clippers to the WCF, instead of choking and/or quitting every year.

That was a hell of a game from Chris. Lillard, Lowry/Derozan deserve the criticism they get but they don't have nearly the amount of good games he has had in the postseason. He may have had some melt downs, but he's also had a lot of great games.

Damn, what a performance by CP, basically a giant middle finger to all his haters, and deservedly so. Congrats to him, he gave our franchise his best years and gave us the chance to get assets on his way out. He made this franchise legit. Too bad loser Blake drug him down while he was here. Once he got a real star next to him, you all see what happened. WCF. VagFHS continues to get gang banged in every hole this season, it just gets worse and worse for him. The CP vs Blake debate is now officially OVER.

Nowhere to be found, and then he blamed the organization and his teammates for his disappearing acts, ran to another team and rode the MVP and Capela's coattails. And still, some so-called Clipper "fans" support him more than "their own team." Sad.

Chris had a great game and it’s nice that he finally got over the second round hurdle but he has to close the deal otherwise he and the Rockets are just another casualty in the history books.

Every now and then I check in to see whether you are talking basketball, rather than spouting the same adolescent and boring racist, homophobic, and sexist b.s. that made me leave in the first place.    You must have been real bad-asses when you were, say, eleven years old.   I'll try again in a few months.

To be fair Capela and Harden both sucked last night and CP3 put the Rockets on his shoulders and carried them to the WC finals.  His best game ever.  He spent a lot of time hugging Quin Snyder after the game.  Must be a lot of respect between them after last years playoff series.  These Rockets don't have a chance against the Warriors who know how to shut CP down but good on them to make it this far.  Jazz lose Exum, Rubio, and Mitchell and still make it close.  Not sure these Rockets would have beaten a healthy Jazz team.  Yes, congrats to CP3 and good luck in the WC finals.  Congrats to Mbah a Moute and Eric Gordon also.

The Jazz didn't really make it close, they lost in 5 games and all the Rockets win were by 10+ points. If the Jazz made it close the Pelicans made it close too.

The Pelicans did make it close.  They played real good last night.  And the Jazz had the lead in the third quarter before Mitchell go hurt.  They have a healthy Exux and Rubio and that series was very winnable for them.  Losing Rubio for the Jazz would be like the Rockets losing CP3 for the entire series.  It just made it so that the Jazz would lose close games instead of winning them.  Ricky got a triple double against the Thunder in the playoffs before getting injured.  He was critical for them in winning that series.  And the Pelicans are an excellent team that gave the Warriors a hell of a lot tougher time than the Rockets are going to give them.  Came close in game two and five at Oracle.  Very competitive except in games one and four.  Anthony Davis played like a stud last night as well as Jrue Holiday.  Kudos to the Pelicans.

Since when did Clipper fans give more support to CP on the Rockets than this year's Clippers?

Congrats but its a damn shame we couldn't get one "Unconscious 4th quarter/blackout/Put the team on his back" game from Chris Paul like he had last night. I feel robbed. I preyed to god he would have a big playoff game like that for us in the six years he was on the team- Never saw it. Just mostly curating a nice stat line the entire time. He had some moments like the game winner against the Spurs in that first round and a couple of nicee games against the Jazz last year in the playoffs but fuck- Where was this shit at in the OKC and Houston game 6???? Wow

Uhm CP had plenty of big playoff games for the Clippers and game winning shots in the playoffs. What the fuck are you guys smoking? Problem was he couldn’t do it all himself. His so called “number 2” guy was invisible or injured most of the time when he needed him most. Now he’s on a team with a true star partner and hes in the WCF. Shit even Austin Rivers made more of an impact in the playoffs for the Clippers than Blake did. Look this is real simple, CP swaps Blake out for Harden and now hes in the WCF, all there is to it.

It's easier when you're the third-best player on your own team and the opponent's guards are all injured. When CP0 had to step up and lead a team as The Guy, he choked and couldn't handle the pressure.

It's just like Durant. He was a choke artist as the leader in OKC. But once he started riding the coattails of Steph's 73-win team instead, then he could magically hit daggers in the Finals.

Not everyone is built to be the unquestioned leader of a franchise. CP0's fans always pretended he was one of those guys, but he isn't.

He had that unconscious game.  Game 1 against OKC in 2014.  

 

That's why the game was essentially over by the 2nd quarter.

 

I'm a bigger fan of blowouts than comebacks.  Comebacks usually mean there was shitty play during the first half or 3 quarters.  Or inconsistent play.

 

Whereas blowouts usually mean 3 - 4 quarters of great play.

 

It's better not to let it get to a point, where a comeback was needed.

Depending on how they play the matchups Chris can possibly finally have a big series against the Warriors. His biggest problem here is he was paired with Redick and it was too easy for the Warriors to switch it and have Klay guard Paul, who he had to work hard against to have big games.

 

If they put Steph on Chris and Klay on Harden then he can finally have a big series, but I think what they'll end up doing if they don't start out doing so is start Iguodala and put him on Harden. If he can handle that matchup they can still put Klay on Chris and Steph can hide on Ariza. The versatility of Golden State is just unlike any other team. On the other end unlike the Pels, the Rockets do have some decent guys to throw on Durant and Chris can do pretty well on Steph. Should be an interesting series.

Oh I know all about Blake's failures and Doc's team horrible team building. Not excusing them at all. And CP3 definitely has a better running mate in MVP canidate in Harden no doubt about it. But truthfully Harden just had two subpar playoff games in a row including last night- and you could even say they were Blake-like as far as supporting numbers go for a tag team of two stars but this time around CP3 hoisted the team on his back and brought them home. Basically the same scenario he had with us in a couple of playoff rounds was playing out last night but finally CP3 said he wasn't having it this time around. He wouldn't do that with the Clipps straight up. That's my whole point. Harden is known to dissapear in the later rounds. Lets see what happens the next round.

If CP and the Rockets lose as expected in the next round, will people respect them or say they are still choke artists?

Everybody knows the Warriors are the favorite. Rockets simply need to have a good showing for any type of respect.

I think it's dumb to say they have to win the series against the best team in the league otherwise they're chokers. If they get it to 6 games, they deserve respect. However if they put on a Toronto performance that is going to be held strongly against them.

Bingo, 100% correct. But really CP has already had a successfull season just by getting that 2nd round monkey off his back. No matter what happens in the conference finals.

I don't think Houston will deem it a successful season if they lose to GSW. It will make it a very difficult decision for them to give CP3 a max contract.

A team like Houston won't really be hurt by giving out a max contract for Chris. I mean possibly 3-4 years down the line, but at that point who cares if you cash a couple of chips out of it.  They are an over the cap team no matter what with Harden already getting a supermax plus Gordon/Ariza/Anderson and what Capela is about to make. If they let CP walk they can only replace him with a minimum contract. He's clearly proved to be a valuable addition so it's a no brainer even if he is overpaid in the last year or two.
