Was out last night so only now watched HOU-GSW. What a game. Rockets nailed down their switching defense just a tad too late.

Tim Bontemps

There was a lot of debate about Houston's final play last night. Why I think the Rockets did the right thing: nyp.st/1Ltewa3

Matt Steinmetz

J.Harden & D.Howard very good in Game 2. Still not enough. Rockets need J.Smith to join party. But what are odds all 3 play well same game?

Calvin Watkins

The Rockets are traveling and not practicing today.

Andres Pando

Los Rockets quedaron mal por las dos chances perdidas en Oakland. Pero si levantaron un 1-3 ante los Clippers... #NBA http://t.co/ellGGHHYhr

I'll be talking Warriors-Rockets Game 2 this morning at 8:15 with @sal_castaneda on @KTVU.

How James Harden & the never give up Rockets fumbled away a West Finals road win at Warriors. yhoo.it/1K849aJ #nba #Rockets #Warriors

Raul Barrigon

Wow. via @ESPNNBA James Harden ties Hakeem Olajuwon on this: 14 straight playoff games scoring +20 points in Rockets history.

Si los Rockets se hubiesen llevado a su "drafteado" LLull, se habría comido el aro sin dudarlo :P twitter.com/nbaplus/status…

Warriors hold off Rockets 99-98, lead series 2-0 insidebayarea.com/warriors/ci_28…

David Locke

The Rockets have exceeded expectations all season because James Harden is a LOT better than we realize

Matt Steinmetz

Already looking forward to talking about Warriors-Rockets Game 2 on Friday morning on @KTVU with @sal_castaneda.

Aaron J. Lopez

As @George Karl likes to point out, a playoff series is often closer than the record reflects. Rockets outscored by 6, but trail 2-0.

Sean Highkin

No Riley = Rockets get the win retroactively. That's the rule.

David Hardisty

The Rockets were down by eight points with 1:31 left in the game. Even though it came up just short, that was a hell of a comeback.

Earl K. Sneed

The Rockets have lost all six games vs. the Warriors this season. Now, they have to beat them 4 out of 5 to advance to the Finals.

Sam Amick

Want to make sense of what just happened between the Warriors and the Rockets? I've got you on Game 2 here - usatoday.com/story/sports/n…

Carlo Pamintuan

Rockets had a defensive 5 on the floor. In hindsight, should've called a timeout but while watching it, I really thought Harden would win it

Jose Luis Malo

Rockets: misma estrategia, mismo resultado twitter.com/warriors/statu…

Dwain Price

The #Rockets must be kicking themselves for not getting out of Oakland with at least a 1-1 split.

Kurt Helin

I'm good with not calling a timeout, by the way. Why let the Warriors defense get set, sub in guys they want? Rockets just didn't execute.

Ethan Strauss

Rockets had the Warriors on their heels in transition. You don't call a timeout there. Harden just hesitated and Curry swiped it. It happens

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets fall in a tough Game 2-will go back to Houston down 0-2 in the series

Abraham Romero

FINAL | Los Rockets desperdician la última posesión y los Warriors se llevan el partido (99-98). Las estadísticas es.global.nba.com/boxscore/#!/00…

Mark Heisler

Missing replay: Before #Warriors doubled #JamesHarden, he had enough space for 18-foot step back, passed it up, passed to D12. #Rockets

Kurt Helin

Still, the Rockets are not even close in this one without brilliant Harden.

Alex Kennedy

I can't believe the Rockets didn't get a shot off AND THEY HAD A TIMEOUT.

Quixem Ramirez

Rockets down 0-2. Could be up 2-0 if a few plays went their way. They blew some prime opportunities. Series still isn’t over … yet.

Tim Bontemps

Love McHale not calling timeout there. Rockets may not have gotten the shot but I'll take my chances with Harden on the break.

Bruno Altieri

Qué gran partido. Harden se enredó en su propia barba, pero hay que reconocer el trabajo de los Rockets. Mucho carácter para volver.

Sean Highkin

How did somebody not realize the Rockets had a timeout

David Hardisty

Heartbreaking. Harden couldn't get the shot off for the win, loses the ball. FINAL: Warriors 99, Rockets 98.

Ben Golliver

Warriors barely escape with a 99-98 victory in Game 2 as Rockets can't get a shot up on the final possession.

Bruno Altieri

Siento que los Warriors son un equipo muy superior, pero los Rockets son combativos. No se rinde. Y la perseverancia es un gran atributo.

Calvin Watkins

Rockets have done a nice job of doubling Curry when he gets the ball forcing him to make a decision and take time off the clock.

Tim Bontemps

Rockets have impressed me so much these last few games. Don't know what happened the first 4 games vs the Clippers but they've been great.

Calvin Watkins

Harden with nine assist, the last has brought the Rockets to within one with 33 seconds left.

Mike Mazzeo

The Rockets have a chance to tie. The Rockets have a chance to tie.

David Hardisty

8-second violation ... are you serious? Great pressure at the perfect time by the Rockets.

Jonathan Feigen

Backcourt violation and the Rockets finally get the stop they needed. Rockets ball down three, 40.6 left.

Jimmy Spencer

Here we go. Warriors 99, Rockets 96. Rockets ball with 40.6 seconds left.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets force a Warriors turnover - Great D by Brewer there. Rockets down 3 with the ball and 40 seconds.
