What’s the point of having a 3-1 lead in a series if you’re not going to hold on to it? The memes are having a field day with the Houston Rockets taking game 7 and sending Chris Paul and the Los Angeles Clippers home, knocking them out of the playoffs before the conference finals once again.

It’s the third time in four years that the Clippers make it this far and don’t get to enter the promised land, just like Moses. This one was the closest yet, blowing a 3-1 lead in the series, including a 19-point lead in game 6. It’s going to be difficult for quite a few players to fall asleep in the next few days.

The Houston Rockets aren’t exactly in familiar territory. This is the first time that this group actually makes it past the first round. As a franchise, the Rockets haven’t been in the conference finals since 1997.

James Harden? He finally showed up. And so did Josh Smith, and Dwight Howard. Now it’s time for the Rockets to figure out how to beat the Golden State Warriors, something they weren’t able to do in the regular season.
