Twitter reacts to Warriors' HUGE 22-point Game 2 loss in Houston
The Rockets turned their style completely upside down in Game 2, and they showed why they were the #1 team in the regular season with a 127-105 demolition of the Warriors. Their role players stepped up big-time in this game, bouncing back from a below-par Game 1 outing during which key role players like Gerald Green, PJ Tucker and Trevor Ariza were unable to make their mark.
The Rockets led by over 10 points for the better part of the game, and they went into their locker rooms at halftime with a 14-point lead, the score being 64-50 in their favor. While James Harden did have another great outing, his dominance did not reflect in the box scores as it did in Game 1.
Many people were quick to write off the possibility of the Rockets beating the Warriors in a 7-game series following the events of the series-opener. They will now be more circumspect in their predictions, given how the Rockets outran, out-thought, out-hustled and straight away outplayed their opponents.
The following are some of the reactions from the game:
If the meme game from fans is as strong as it was today for the remainder of the series, we expect to have a field day bringing them to your attention!
