Now Is the Time to Go See '2000 Mules' in Theatres
"Today's Friday guys and what this means is that 2000 mules is now in 400 theaters in a kind of normal, wide release for showings a day. And I hope that you will plan to go, not sometimes, but this weekend. Opening weekend is always important for a movie. It kind of gives the movie it's kind of initial momentum. It's a signal to the kind of theater community of how the movie is doing movie watchers always look to see what the opening weekend is. In fact, it was kind of almost a kind of nostrum among movie producers that you put all your energy into opening weekend. And then after opening weekend, you literally start making the next movie because that initial momentum is so critical in seeing how far this kind of movie rocket is going to go. So we want to prove that this kind of content dealing with critically important issues that are presented in a theatrical way, which is to say, in a way that is not only informative, but entertaining, that there's a big audience for this. We want to send that message to the movie community. We want to send it to independent theaters. We want to send it to the theater chains. And so you can help us to do that. So by the way, even if you've downloaded the film or you've seen it, or you have a DVD, it's a whole different experience to see it in the theater. In part, not just because of the big screen and the incredible acoustics and so on. That's all true. But also because it's kind of fun to see things in a group. I mean, it's kind of the same difference between, say, for example, doing a solitary prayer, which you can do, or going to church where you have other believers and you're sort of reinforcing each other. And this becomes an experience, not just of I am watching the movie, but rather we are watching the
Jesse Watters: Why Are We Feeding Illegals Before Americans?
"Jesse watters had his own unique take on this reprehensible situation yesterday on Fox News channel. Why are we feeding illegal babies ahead of American babies? Why can illegals get baby formula from border agents, but we can't get it at Walgreens? Does any of this make sense? None of this is rocket science. For instance, we have oil in Alaska. Gas. Just broke a record. It's almost what? Four 50 a gallon? What is Joe Biden do today? Shuts down a massive oil lease in the state of Alaska. Is anybody in The White House thinking? Inflation is at a record high. So how about we stop spending and stop printing? Right? It's the same thing with defund the police. We want to treat everybody on the street with respect, but we want to give the police the tools to fight crime. Everybody agrees with that. Judge jeanine said the other day, mayor Adams and Manhattan, taken thousands of guns off the street, but the crime is going up. Why? Because we're not taking the criminals off the street.
Daily Mail: Mothers Forced to by Intolerant Baby Formula Due to Shortage
"It looks like big baby formulas at it now As well as big electricity joining big meat big week big corn big oil in order to profiteer off the American people in this time of inflation What we need is more government more regulations More taxes more investigation We need to get to the bottom of this Well at the bottom of this is the American Marxist movement The long war on our economic system People trying to make America poor trying to destroy our capitalist system Desperate mothers are forced to buy formula They know will make babies sick as an unprecedented shortage leave shelves bare and prices rocket to a $120 they can due to a national recall and supply crisis Reads the daily mail Winter ball drop of Tennessee says she broke down after going to 6 stores calling others as far as three hours away they did not have her baby's formula The infamous neutrino the only formula her baby tolerates was out of stock Ball thrup is among a growing number of mothers who've resorted to desperate options to feed their babies as America continues to struggle with the shortage

The War in Ukraine Rages On
"The war in Ukraine rages on and it actually rages on longer than the intelligence exports had estimated and Ukraine is hanging in there. They continue to fight gallantly against the Russian Putin invasion of Ukraine. But who's going to run out of weapons first the Russians or, well, us, the west. For a while there, I kept reading gleeful articles in the media. Oh, the Russians are going to pretty soon be out of ammunition, the Ukrainians are going to have them on the ropes. On the face of it, this is a little bit implausible. The Ukraine is going to defeat Russia in a war. Well, Ukraine is getting a lot of help. It's getting a lot of help from the west, shipments of western, not so much troops, no troops. But rather a weaponry, artillery, and rockets and all kinds of lethal aid. Now the west has done this in the name of protecting quote, the arsenal of democracy. This is some fictitious alliance of democracies around the world. There's no actual such alliance and in fact big democracies have stayed out of this. But nevertheless, this is the kind of public fiction the democracies of the world are hanging together against the autocracies of the world. Well, it turns out that initially the expectation of the part of U.S. intelligence was that the Russians would overwhelm the Ukrainians and the Ukrainians would be reduced to fighting a kind of Afghan style guerrilla war over the next year or even decade and the United States would be supporting this insurgency in various ways large and small. But it turns out the Ukrainians are still in the fight and as a result of being in the fight against obviously a more sizable opponent. The Ukrainians are demanding very aggressively as the lenski almost every day is calling for escalations. He wants more drones. He wants more anti tank weapons. He was more anti aircraft weapons. He wants more ammunition. And so here is Russia pummeling the Ukraine's industrial base, a pretty successfully as it turns

Why Did Journalist Lara Logan Seemingly Disappear?
"Fox as promised from an undisclosed location, we have the joy of speaking with Laura Logan, Laura, welcome to the program. Thank you very much. I want to talk to you about everything. So I don't know where we should start. Let's start with the fact that I came to know you as a really a star reporter at CBS. You were rising like a rocket in the world of journalism. You were given this sort of the plum political assignment. You're not just a reporter at CVS, but you get to be on 60 minutes with all those people who are four and 5 times your age. And then suddenly you seem to have disappeared a little bit. I guess take us back. Was it because of what happened to you in Egypt that you went off the radar a little bit as a journalist? No, not at all. And it was because of Benghazi actually. It was because I naively did a story that for me wasn't political at all, but for the Clinton campaign in the 2016 election cycle was, of course, nothing but political.

How Iran Uses Hezbollah to Conduct International Operations
"I'm continuing my discussion of Iran and its operations in other countries in the Middle East and even in North Africa. The article I'm discussing is written by Karim sajar poor in foreign affairs magazine and such a port makes the point that Iran uses its surrogate, which is Hezbollah, to conduct operations in a number of other countries, but particularly in Lebanon. Now Hezbollah is by far the most powerful force in Lebanon today. They just go about doing whatever they want. I mean, they want to assassinate a political opponent. That's it for him. They have they run their own underground economy. They've implanted thousands of rockets in Lebanon that have the capacity of striking Israel. And then one time Hezbollah claimed to be sort of its own organization. It was not part of Iran. But of late, they've become very explicit about their the fact that Hezbollah essentially is Iran. Here is Sheik and Ezra. This is by the way the founder and leader of Hezbollah. And he goes, as long as Iran has money, we have money. Just as we receive the rockets, we use to threaten Israel, we're receiving our money. So this is an azra la basically saying, hey, listen, I'm Iran's man outside of Iran. I do Iran's bidding and the Iranians are perfectly happy to fund me. Let's remember that Iran also uses Shia radicals and local groups in Iraq and they used it while America was in Iraq to sort of destabilize the Iraqi regime, which they were very successful in

"The 5 on four break, it's a problem, but it's not a unique problem to the Lakers. That's something you see around the NBA. Yeah. And I know Trevor, you've been very upset about it very vocal about your frustration with that this season. And again, the schedule is only going to get tougher. I think they only have 6 home games left the rest of the season. A lot of these games out of the stretch you have a big road trip coming up. Minnesota, Toronto, Washington Cleveland, and then you come back home for a game and they have three top ones on the road. So again, the schedule is all you're going to get topper. In the Lakers and what should be an easy win on the road, it gets a bad rockets team. I mean, what makes you think they're going to get up for, I mean, they've already shown they don't get up or Oklahoma City, let alone New Orleans. So it's aggravating, man. John Robertson Dallas said it's hard for a Lakers fan that you'd still watch every Laker game this season even with an atrocious season. Yeah, look, hey, you're a real one. If you're still watching right now, you're real one. I know some of the people in the chat didn't really watch the game, just kind of had it all in while they were doing other stuff. Understand, but man, it's not easy getting through some of these games. That's for sure. Matty James said, Trevor and Sean, any off season free agents that would be a good fit for next season or players you'd want to re sign once Russ is gone. Malik monk is a guy that I would love to see the Lakers resign Eric pink is over at bleacher report did a piece about this about that would be one of and we've spoken about this here as well. One of the potential pros of waving and stretching Russell Westbrook is now you're probably looking at bringing back Malik monk because now you can get into the mix with a full mid level exception offer. Now overall, I don't think stretching process is a good idea. I think it's probably not the correct path to go down, but that's the silver lining to doing that. That's the positive is if you do that, you can probably put yourself in the mix to hang on to a guy like Malik monk. Maybe you don't need to go there. Maybe you find out through whatever channels you need to that he'll play for the mini mid level exception, the taxpayer mid level. That's possible too. But that's kind of the silver lining. Other free agents that are out there, the free agent market is not very deep this year, and there's also not a lot of cap space. And those two things are connected. There's not a lot of cap space because teams spent their cap space because they saw there's not a lot of players out there on the free agent market this year. So it's going to be pretty competitive going after free agents. I don't know there's going to be a ton of different difference makers. I do think that's going to create to have very trade heavy NBA off season because teams are going to see they can't get the pieces they want on the market. So instead they're going to try to trade. But in any event, we've got plenty of time to get into the off season stuff. I haven't looked at every single free agent out there..

"'cause think about it. It's coming to a point. You're likely going to let Frank Vogel walk anyway. That's the point. Yes. The team is, the team has played like this for a total, probably about 15 games this season. And I get it, Frank boger does have a bunch of guys defensively who will lock in and play with the tense effort, but respectfully there's no way in heck that you should give up a 139 points of the Houston Rockets who are the second worst team in the NBA. That's an excusable and then the lack of effort that they've shown again for at least 15 games this year. And it just looks like the guys they just give up at times. And I hate to use that word because I think teams want to win and I think guys players the players want to win because if you don't want to win, why are you playing basketball? Like you're in the wrong profession, but they just look like they quit. Honestly, in, again, I hate using that term or whatever, but that's what it looks like. And I think part of that is slightly on Frank. And I think Frank's done some things. He probably regrets. I think the rotations have been lack thereof, not good this season. The offense has been bad unless LeBron or 80s going Berserk, the offensive is bad, defensive. Way to inconsistent somehow they're still ranking at 17th, I think, person energy, which the reliable I get my film from them. So there's somehow ranked 17th in the NBA and defense, but man, it's rough. So I would at least get Bohemia shot going into next season. I don't know, Daniel espinoza said, so what's the solution, Trevor? I mean, as a professional athlete, you should take pride in your heart and hustle. Agree. A 100% agree. And that's why I think that the only thing is that organization you really can do is say, well, let's see if a change of the coach shakes things up enough to get us some energy through the remainder of the season. That's about the only thing about aside from that, it's do we just pack it in and start benching some guys put on the guys that are going to hustle because look, let's face it..

"You already know what to expect. The Lakers found a way to lose to the Houston Rockets, just when we thought that we had hit rock bottom when they got blown out by the pelicans and we wondered, could there be another low can it get lower? The Lakers said yes. Yes, we can give you that. We can knock you down a little bit further. And we can lose a game to the Houston Rockets. We've got a lot to talk about in this, what a lot of things to break down, unfortunately, I can already see in the chat. A lot of people upset. And rightfully so, you've got plenty of reason to be upset after this game, we'll talk about it. We'll vent the very least. We will get through it together. Joining me is Sean Davis from Lakers nation dot com. Sean, I don't even know what to say. This was, that was brutal. That was awful, awful, terrible. And all I can do is laugh. Yeah, you laugh to hide the pain, but I wanna really quickly applaud all of Lakers nation, the fans are great staff for somehow managing to get through the season because it's been rough men and guys are real ones for stick it through I can't see right now how many people are in here live with us, but you guys are all real ones because if I have to do this I wouldn't be here right now. It's rough on for sure. Yeah, this is this has been really, really bad. This is particularly when you look at this game and I guess here's going to be my big picture point for this. My take away so when the Lakers when the score was tied and the Lakers had the ball and we're heading into the final play of the game, I'm thinking, okay, the Lakers they're going to get the last shot. And I was thinking, all right, even if they score here, the discussion isn't necessarily going to be, hey, the Lakers won this game. It's not going to be a celebration, really, because we all know what we saw. We all know what we saw the Lakers do in this game. We saw them not play basketball. Not put forth much effort, not really look like they cared to be out there. It looked like the worst parts of an All-Star Game. Frankly, to me. And the rockets have an excuse. It's a young team..
"rockets" Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"In case you want to just go down off season memory lane. Yeah. But no, yeah, it's the most frustrating thing with me. Like, Deandre Jordan, I know, still has a pretty decently sized name when you bring him up with casual fans. But he's just not the same player and through 8 games. Because trust me, we saw this a lot with Marc Gasol last year who was also a very slow footed big who couldn't really defend as many actions. But at least Mark provided spacing and passing. Deandre Jordan was still definitely a law threat when he has space enough to get up there. But after that, though, he just hasn't been as good on the glasses I would have expected either. We had a lot of fans complaining about offensive rebounding for other teams, which means a Lakers aren't defensive rebounding. Deandre just hasn't been that good either. He just doesn't have the same lift. He just doesn't seem to get the boards that we expect pigment to get. That's been another complaint of mine. So not to dump on the guy completely. I do think he'll try his uses some nights, but I just think going forward long term, the best version of the Lakers doesn't have him in the line. I mean, 9 he had what, 9 boards tonight? Three of them offensive? I mean, that's not terrible, but still there were enough moments defensively where I thought this is going to be better when Dwight's in this rotation. Right. And I mean, to be fair, if you want some added context, they're playing the rockets who didn't have Daniel Tyson, the game. Sure. Because he was out for the night. So I think when you have, when you play other teams with more size, I think you'll notice that Deandre just isn't as effective on the glasses used to be there. Definitely is not makes that an even more curious move that the Lakers decided to go with the Andrew Jordan. Look, the Lakers and rockets tied in offensive boards, 11. They won the rebounding battle over all the Lakers did 43 to 38. But again, the rockets are missing their starting center. You would think that would be a bigger discrepancy there. Yeah, you would think so, but it just doesn't have that's not the case right now. All right. Let's take a let's do one more. One more question. You know what? One of the things that I've been doing lately. Because the last couple of shows have been solo. Has been our favorite moment from the game. And it kind of like a little de facto award that we throw in. So what was your favorite moment from tonight's game Matt?.
"rockets" Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"No, I mean, I'd have to watch it again to you, but I did do a double take. It looked like it was about to hit the rim and Deandre grabbed it, which is why the rockets are falling goaltending. So I don't know, but what's worse there if you missed that badly or if I don't know, I don't know. It ended up in the song. So but I mean look, if whether it hit the river or not, if it was a total air ball, if he just missed the rim, then that's not goaltending. If it did touch the rim, it bounced straight off. It's not like it bounced up or anything and it would have gone straight into his hands. I'm guessing it probably didn't hit the rim because so many people were asking, was that a pass or a shot or what was it? We'll call it a pass, though, just for Avery Bradley's sake. Yeah, great, great corner lob. Yeah. All right, let's I've had a lot of people asking about this. I want to get into some other topics. I want to talk about Deandre Jordan. I want to talk about that's the reaction. I want to talk about him. Want to get in some other stuff? I need to talk about Anthony Davis three point shooting. A lot of things there. But I've got so many people talking about this moment and I know it's going to be our master lock in the night. So let's just get into it, Matt, let's talk about what happened. We already know we already know what it is. The master lock of the night was the referees taking two points away from the Lakers because of what they call this was their language, a correctable error. Where Kent bazemore got to shoot two free throws by mistake. They thought that the rockets had 5 fouls. They actually only had four, so they thought they were in the bonus. They gave Kent bazemore two free throws. He shot them. What was it a couple minutes had gone by? Sometime had gone by. And then they went back and said, oh, wait, we made the mistake and took the two points away. The reason why this is a master lock is because it rob the Lakers of a possession. If that was the case, right? If they had made that mistake, okay, but you just wronged the Lakers with that mistake by going back and fixing it because if they called it correctly, it would have been the ball out of bounds to the Lakers. Now they just lost the point and didn't get the possession of the ball. I have literally never seen this. I haven't either. In all my years of watching basketball, you know, I made kudos to the rest for trying to get a call right, but you don't take away two. They literally took points off the board. And you know, at the time, I don't remember what the actual score was, but I know the Lakers were up and they had maybe a two possession leader. But you take two points away. No, actually I remember now. It was a 5 point lead for the Lakers. They took two points away, it became a three point lead. LeBron was able to nail a jumper and put it back to 5. But that should have been 7 and a three possession game. And it had a real implications because like we said, the rockets could have won. Yeah. They would have won. So yeah, I just don't understand. I can't imagine that's in the rule book..
"rockets" Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"Start thinking, this could be the one and how many people are watching this game because we're playing the Lakers. This is gonna be our night tonight. If the Lakers would come out defensively and just put the clamps on from the get go, that thought never enters the rocket's head and then they wind up having a much easier night, but instead they created problems for themselves by not taking care of business. That's not what you want to see out of a veteran team that knows better. Yeah, I agree. Look, the final score of this game was one 19 one 17. The last time these two teams met, it was 95 to 85. So obviously scoring was not an issue. And I cracked the joke on Twitter a bunch of times that defensive option was that's honestly what it felt like for most of the game. Obviously, you expect the rockets to be a bad defensive team. They're young. They're still growing. They're learning how to be professional MBA players, but you've got a veteran team like the Lakers under Frank Vogel, that knows better and still are outright trying to just outscore teams rather than clamping down defensively like you mentioned. So yeah, it's a little frustrating and this is what I was kind of referring to previously and other shows is that I still have no idea what the identity of this team really is. It's very Jekyll and Hyde. They look so great in spurts. I thought the Lakers that we saw against the Cavs was pretty indicative of the type of team we could expect to see down the stretch or going forward. But then you get nights like tonight where you're like, okay, I'm not too sure now. So it's one of those things that I know they're going to still be working through. And 8 games is still a relatively small sample size. But I do really think that, again, this is going to be the norm for the Lakers where we're going to get up and down performances for at least I believe, like maybe the next one. And that roller coaster fans buckle in. I'm going to talk a little bit about that too. The fan reaction, we'll get to that in just a bit, but toxic toxic bash Bosh from YouTube with a super chat..

Joining me tonight is Matt the optimist Peralta. Matt, how are you doing, man? How stressful was that? Was that game? I am never going to be able to watch a Lakers game this season in peace, Trevor. This one was way too close for comfort, as evidenced by the last couple of minutes. Of course, the wind is nice, but it's one of those wins that doesn't feel too great. It shouldn't have gone disclosed and to be honest, the Lakers should have even been in this position to begin with. But, you know, the Lakers move to 5 and three, which is I believe good for third, now in the Western Conference and this early part of the season. So that's good. We're now 10% of the season away. So all things considered, things could be worse, but again, it's just one of those things where you wish the Lakers played better and didn't have to tried this hard toward. I think the frustrating part for me was it felt like against the calves and then again against the rockets, the Lakers had taken some steps forward, right? Like the last game against the rockets, there was never much of a doubt about who was going to win that game..

Just because the stuff that he's good at is particularly the sort of thing that wins you now the rookie of the year. Even like predictive of it's basically just i. It's sort of like six points per game than you know. Yeah i i agree. I think you know i mean like you said earlier. There's very there's very rarely a rookie. Who comes in and is actually good late. And i do think this draft is going to kind of create a bulk of. I think there's gonna be a good amount of players in this draft you are rotational players for the near future How many of them are impact for near one. Will we'll see we'll very much cbo before we before we end. I do want to ask you two questions one. If you are in the rockets war room. I mean you might not know who the rockets wants today. But in your opinion at those twenty three and twenty four big who would you take a tough question And i'm in so much of it is tied to who you take it to. So i'm gonna toss out a number of names ago for Who possibilities i mean. This is a draft. Were again so many things are going to happen. Say something things can happen. Because i just believe so many things will happen. I agree yeah. it's gonna be wild night So you know we. We've tossed out a couple on if he stays in this draft. Oppression is a very interesting for who can do a lot of thanks. Ram he is a like a down l. player in a very positive way Probably going to be one of the leaders of repeat dumps Because a keep he truly believes he's going to dump on everybody He can give them a little bit of a playmaking role which is ideal or like.

"Name's image and you guys can find me on twitter at finding twenty three and a podcast at jazzy rockets. And now we are only twelve days away from the drafts. The rockets still have the second the twenty third and the twenty four th pick a little bit of drama going around with those picks maybe we trade up for number one and take gade cunningham and maybe we pressure you know detroit possibly take jalen green number one And there's a lot of things that can happen but today we're here to talk a little bit about some prospects of the rockets could take a some prospects in this draft and a little bit about how to go about the draft process. We're here with one. Of in my opinion the best guys on draft twitter of great at breakdowns. Anybody watch some recently. And if you haven't definitely go check it out Very very in depth. And i learned a lot just from watching those pd web pd. How're you doing today. We're entering stretch The most stressful times of the year of rumors were for trying to get everything done and trying to feel. Like you're in a good place but Yeah it's also the most exciting time it's it's very exciting and you know with the situation that the rockets are in especially with all the stuff that happened last year a three picks in this draft might just be the best way to kind of really get the rebuild started especially with the number two big and you have a guy that you think we should take number two but before we get into that. I wanna ask some things about the draft process and the process of scouting And specifically what kind of things do you look for in prospects What are the things that stand out to you. And what sort of attributes do you think are the most important. I think that there's not a universal most important I think the who. When i'm looking at a general prospect I'm thinking like what they're what they're nba. Skill is the thing that they're going to do it like a questionable in the nba. And then you know once once they have that skeleton say like they're they're an mba plus shooter than it's tearing you know what is that look like forgot korca's for catching shoot For a guy like a bone thailand bets shooting in in in versatile situations. And then you know to figure out where somebody belongs kind of. Try to thank you. Know what is the will how it a medium. tv's it's like has a good developmental environment team. That has a like a fine situational fit. What is the worst possible fit for them. Like what is the best possible but in kinda work from there. I mean my general idea is if somebody is you know in this draft process. There is a circumstance where they can be a really positive player as just trying to find the best circumstance for everybody and trying to find the more the the players highest likelihood of finding no good outcomes whenever you're looking at like these different attributes for players and seeing if they're translatable to the nba. Are there any kind of attributes that you know in. Your opinion are easier to translate than others. I think that like like soft skills always translate well so like really good communicators players with with good movement skills so the ability to turn their hips..

W we're not going to talk about the positives and just completely forget about the things that heard arguments. We're going to talk about them. Now is the failed big three in houston ninety six ninety seven ninety eight ninety nine years. Where like we said. They wouldn't have beat the bulls and people my point those but where we're aware that those years the bowls of dennis rodman their teams completely different stuff can happen but like the same situation there but that that year right. The rockets were favored. Because they had scottie pippen ninety nine they had charles barkley by later on right in the middle of that. What ended up happening there to those rockets teams in. Why do you think they weren't able to to click the web when thought they would. Let's start with ninety six ninety seven right so that's why not. That's charles barkley ruins rockets. You makes all star team that year. He averaged nineteen points per game. Clyde drexler is on that team keno Charles barkley's thirty three. You don't have any you don't have vernon maxwell on the squad anymore. You don't have kenny smith on the squad anymore. You don't have sam cassell. No more robert ory. The clutch city teams not their end. So charles barkley missed thirty games. Clyde drexler misled twenty gains. And we still finish. We made to the western conference finals. Ali nobody's you know. We made finals. We take the jazz to six games. And that's whenever the jazz lost to the bulls in six in ninety seven when they did it again. Ninety eight and so in nineteen ninety eight. We played a jazz in the first round. You play team. That goes all their files but we forty one forty one year again. Not good akeem missed a lot of time. That season barkley also michigan amount of time. And so two clyde drexler so you. These guys are going towards the end of their career So the thing about this year in my opinion. It's you start seeing some new guys right. So katina moberly. Who's one of my favorite rockets of all time. This is a his rookie season. Scotty pippin scottie. Pippen comes to the rockets. After his his bulls ten year the big three or the did they do the three p. They they have their fun. We all watch the last dance. We also have that one This is the lockout year two so thirty one.

Sandiego had a huge aerospace industry and they were given a franchise in nineteen sixty seven hundred sixty seven. What happened in the nineteen sixties the space race right so sandiego was huge usually involved in the space race. There's a lot of city pride for that.

"But if we if you if we do not look at the scoreboard during this series. We would think it's overall almost. The rockets are playing better basketball, the rockets of should be feeling better about themselves. And by the way, Draymond green said something very precious, by the way about the physicality nature of this series, and how they are being physical and how they haven't had a proper response yet. And they're going to have to wake up he even said we're getting slapped around. Okay. And so that's what's happening here. Having the set all that they almost pulled it out last night anyway because they still have this talent. But the answer this question is yes to walk. It should be feeling better about themselves fright. Could you throw your hat in the ring here on the idea that the warriors are still figuring themselves out? Well, I would say this about them. If you look at what's going on in the postseason, they've been vulnerable at home already lost two games, and that was to the clippers. So I think what they're trying to figure out is a way to stop James harden because Bob's point you go to game six last year. They did not have Chris Paul. They did not have Chris all in game seven now that everybody's healthy. And I also think that the rockets are winning a bit of the psychological battle after the game last night. Steve Kerr said it's middle linebackers against volleyball players basic trying to buy we're getting pushed around, and I think that audit and all the complaining that the rockets did might be helping them out at this point. This is not being cheeky in any way, the debt lineup knows each other. They played with each other for years now under stays that lineup lot. It's team. This rockets team is equipped to match that and they have something in PJ Tucker. That's a nightmare for this lineup right now. And he is killing them with those rebounds, especially that death lineup is fantastic. But they do have weaknesses there smallish, and they have to play physical. It's the danger of trying to turn it on. Come the playoffs. When you haven't realized what it takes to play at this level when the rest of the league has been slowly catching. Here's an. Regal inside the death lineup here. Bob, Ryan, it's not as deadly as it used to be true or false. That's not the issue. Maybe is a little bit less. But the fact is when you go to the Hampton five you have no bench. Now, they don't have a bench. At least the rockets are getting something out of somebody named Austin rivers, which we weren't counting on. That's another factor. Also in this matchup. They get killed on the glass when they go to to to death lineup or the handed five or whatever you wanna call it. So to sum it all does this year feel different to you is to last year if you'll difference you this year, it's an extension. We know how close to where last year it makes perfect sense that they're in a good position this year only Bob gets to answer that question because I stepped on his time before that is derived, we move books thirteen six one zero one the wave of inevitability that is Milwaukee and the puddle of unreliability that is Boston, which I believe is something Israel's tears wants imparted on this show as segment that takes about thirty seconds. But if you really time that usually about twenty or twenty five. Kyri slough. Let's hear from you know, for me the twenty two shots. I should've shot thirty really great shooter. So. Can you start by dressing?.

"That's that's what makes it fun. And again joke had a great game. Seven triple dumb like. That's what makes it exciting. We had game one of the most anticipated NBA playoff series in a least a year since they did it last year, the rockets and the warriors the read side all nights got locked in watched every second. And it was a weird game. It was it was close. It came down to the end. Let's just take a look at how finished here we have Steph being guard by the nanna switch not the worst defense. Having love got that stop not the work. Kevin ticket. And then we have this after steal the final possession down three James hard for foul. Chris Paul kind of looking for Phalle there. Chris Paul will end up getting teed thrown out. And. It was close. But it was just an odd game all around. What did you take away from game one? Why I remember watching this game? And the rockets got off to very slow start from three right? And you know, there was some, you know, some of you. So all of a sudden you start thinking. Wow, this start and in the last series like they've missed a lot of consecutive threes. Like that was more of just kind of a funny spot the the kind of talk about, but no I thought both of these teams are playing good basketball. Saw a lot of turnovers by the warriors felt like there was an opportunity of if Houston Houston could've hit some shots earlier. Right. And I think they would have been a much better spot because the warriors are team you want to have a ten twelve point cushion, right? If you're up by six if you're up by eight. Gone in twelve that's gone. That's gone really really quickly. And all of a sudden the pressures back on you. So that was the opportunity for the I felt in that first quarter for the warriors, especially with all those turnovers in that first half for the war for the Houston Rockets. The kinda give himself a buffer, but it never came. It. Just the rockets didn't hit the shots when the when a needed to off of those turnovers in the first half and never had an opportunity to build a big lead..

"This guy right in the middle of everything. Michael smith. What do you like on the show today? Your Aaron Rodgers in Mike McCarthy really didn't like each other. That was bad puppy. He took it. Right. That. No one can be directed if they can play this level, right? He made the j g it is PJ not he, gene. That's Paul George. He's an Oklahoma City. It's okay. So they beat the clippers last night and they smoke them. And the rockets since the all-star break are the best team in basketball. They are number two an offense efficiency number two and defensive efficiency they were batter that season because they were hurt and they were bad defensively. And what cannot be stated enough is the only reason this team lost to the warriors last year beyond. Chris Paul getting hurt is in the game. Or Chris Paul was hurt. They were seven of forty four from three that never happens. It was stork Lee bad night. It's the only way you lose a game seven at home. If it happens again this season it will not be because they went seven for forty four from three. It was a historically bad night. That isn't good team. It is a team that at its best plays right with the Golden State Warriors. This. Is about as far as I'm willing to go. When it comes to the rockets chances of beating the warriors. I don't know that PJ Tucker is wall because of all the reasons that Dan just laid out of Chris Paul healthy. We may be talking about the defending champion Houston Rockets in some respects. They may be better than they were last year. They have been the best all star break and most important they're healthy. All we can all do is keep our fingers crossed that they remain healthy through the Western Conference playoffs. So we don't have to talk about what if winning if they play in the Western Conference finals, but if Dan's right, they could miss twenty seven straight threes. If they tried the stats last night. Now, what did you do last night? Twenty seven minutes syrup. That's better information than everything. He and I said that she had five zero point three j you deserve.
