The NBA Playoffs are in full swing with both conference finals series underway it is also baseball season. If you're a Houstonian or at least a Houston sports fan, this is an unusal May for the home crowd. The Astros are in first place in the AL-West and the Rockets are in the Western Confernce Finals! Stros manager A. J. Hinch talk about the 9-game home stand and their 6-1 victory over the Oakland A's befoe they hit road. The Rockets are the underdogs as they take on the Golden State Warriors, but don't tell them that. Although they lost game one in the Bay Area, they were in it until the very end. Dwight Howard was hobbled by an early knee injury he suffered in a collision with teammate Josh Smith and is questioanble for game two. We'll take a look at what happened in game one and what needs to happen in game two for the Rockets to even the series. And of course Deflate-gate continues to be a 'thing'. Patriots owner Robert Kraft declared his allegiance to the 'good of the game' at the owners meeting in San Francisco saying he wouldn't fight the penalites levied against his team. Speaking of the owner's meetings... what else are they talking about at this week's gathering?

The Rockets haven't lost three straight games all year. But if they're going to keep that streak alive in Tuesday's Game 5 -- and with it, their season -- they're going to have to overcome a tidal wave of momentum in favor of the Clippers.
It's not just that the Clippers lead the series, 3-1. It's that they're doing it in dominating fashion. In their weekend romps, the Clippers became the first team since the 2001 Lakers to win back-to-back games in a playoff series by at least 25 points.
Our Ben DuBose is joined by Josh Reese of CBS Radio in Houston (Sports Radio 610) on the Red & Orange Report podcast to break down how the Clippers have done it, starting with an MVP performance from Blake Griffin. They also examine where things have gone wrong for the Rockets, like being torched by an opposing power forward for a second consecutive postseason. Is Terrence Jones on the hot seat, and might things be different if Donatas Motiejunas were healthy?
Other topics explored:
Was Chris Paul's absence a blessing in disguise for the Clippers, given the added minutes and confidence it gave to Austin Rivers?
With James Harden only taking 12 shots in Game 4 despite shooting well on the series (45 percent on FGs, 44 percent on three-point attempts), should he be more aggressive and shoot more?
Is Hack-a-DeAndre Jordan a worthwhile strategy for the Rockets, considering that it negates transition?
Does poor play in this series by Corey Brewer and Josh Smith impact Houston's likelihood of re-signing them this summer?
Take a listen.
