Rockets Resurrection, Celtics Takes Looking Absolutely Disastrous, Nuggets Growing Up

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - May 7, 2019 - 59:26

On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver begin by talking about Austin Rivers, PJ Tucker, James Harden, and the resurrected Houston Rockets who now go to the Bay with the West semis tied 2-2. Topics include: Harden's excellence as the cornerstone of a weekend in crisis for Sharp, Warriors depth, Rockets defense, Steph Curry's struggles and what they say about the future, both teams downplaying officiating, and how worried the Warriors should be. Then (30:00): The supporting cast is in shambles, Kyrie Irving has been mediocre for three straight games, and the Celtics are on life support. Meanwhile: Bledsoe is getting his revenge, Giannis adapted and thrived, and Coach Bud seems to have addressed his biggest weakness. At the end (50:00): Checking in with the Nuggets, who continue to surprise the whole league, and Rodney Hood, whose Game 3 heroics should not have surprised anyone who's been paying attention.
