Chris Paul: “Somebody’s Gotta Beat Us Four Out of Seven Times”
CP3 ain’t worried — yet.
Chris Paul says he’s not overly concerned with Houston’s average start to the season. CP3 is looking at the season long-term, and still doesn’t believe anyone can beat the Rockets “four out of seven times” in a playoff series.
“I’m still not that concerned…Somebody’s gotta beat us 4 out of 7 times. I don’t see that happening.”

But their current record is to the contrary: Houston winning four out of seven games, at this stage, seems unlikely.
The Rockets, who won a franchise-record 65 games last season, have struggled to an 11-12 start to the season, and are currently 13th in the Western Conference standings.
Plus, we’ve got a feeling the Warriors, Lakers, Nuggets and yes, even the Clippers, would hold the upper hand over the Rockets if we were to drop a 7-game series right now.
