Austin Rivers on the reported altercation between Chris Paul and James Harden: "Never happened. I literally don't know where this came from. There was no altercation between CP or James....That loss in Game 6 was so deflating, no one said anything after the game." #Rockets

Austin Rivers discussed the #Rockets second-round series against the Warriors. Rivers says he thinks about Game 6 all the time: "Us not living up to the moment and not taking advantage of the situation we had........Their best player gets hurt, our team's fully healthy..." Austin Rivers: "We had Chris (Paul) healthy, everybody made the excuse for them last year, we had Chris. We had everybody there. The ducks were lined. We didn't take advantage of it. That's all on us. It's just disappointing." #Rockets Stephen Jackson: "(James Harden) kinda laid back at the end of Game 6. He wasn't the same James he was at the beginning of the game. I saw everybody else more hungrier than him."

"Our goal is: you try to set yourself to get into the Western Conference Finals & then you probably need a little luck. That's even for Golden State, that's for anybody...You wanna set yourself up to be one of the best two teams in your conference & then hope you can win it all." After Game 6, Tilman Fertitta said the #Rockets will pick up Tilmanisms. Pay attention. Very telling IMO. “Every year, the #Rockets are going to be one of those teams. There will always be a little noise because I'm a deal guy and (Daryl) is a deal guy.”
