The key to Rockets vs. Warriors? In Game 4 it was grit, Rachel Nichols says | The Jump

In her daily monologue, Rachel Nichols explains how grit — thanks in large part to small-ball center PJ Tucker, a throwback to old Yao Ming replacement Chuck Hayes — has helped the Houston Rockets in their series vs. the Golden State Warriors during the 2019 NBA playoffs. This was particularly apparent in Game 4, as James Harden, Chris Paul & Co. gutted out a win and evened the series 2-2.

  1. If PJ Tucker is the center why don't GSW take advantage of that? I feel like the NBA teams are sometimes so concerned about adapting and trying new strategies that they miss easy opportunities. They should put those little Rockets guards in the post in every action. Rockets go after Curry on every play, but GSW should put CP3 and Harden in every action too. Easy win.

  2. Grit? That's not what I saw. What I saw was the Warriors beating themselves. Settling for jump shots, when they should've been constantly attacking the rim. That 4th quarter was the most boring shit ever, both teams just launching 3 after 3.

  3. We knew the rematch against houston would be tough and to threrpeat would be tough but we persevered all season to get the numbet 1 seed in the west and we will refocus bavk home at oracle arena with our eyes on the prize and show those pesky rockets why were the defending world champions on a quest for something greater then they can reach .warriors come out to play .go dubnation

  4. Curry doesn't care anymore, he doesn't wanna handle the ball, he doesn't wanna do the crossover step back three anymore. He played solid 2 years in 2015 and 2016. But ever since KD joined, he doesn't seem to willing to lead the team to win championships. I blame Curry for this. Klay is Klay, he is never been MVP so Curry is the one who should be taking care of the ball and leading the team. Last night, Draymond Green showed more willingness and effort than Curry.

  5. the whole narrative is now about the rockets, yet when you look, it's 2-2, they had to win one in OT, and they almost coughed one up late in the game and gave GS a chance to send it into OT… wow, not exactly an example of dominance…
