The Houston Rockets pulled off an improbable comeback to win Game 4 in Oracle Arena. Let’s take a look at a few of the best reactions from Twitter.
The Houston Rockets had two major scares in Game 4. The first big scare came as soon as the game started. The Warriors started the game on a 12-0 run and appeared like they were on their way to another blowout.
Then, the Warriors tried to bury Houston in the third quarter, as they do to most teams. Golden State out scored Houston 34-17 in the third quarter and the game looked all but over heading into the final period.
All of a sudden, Golden State lost all of their momentum, Houston’s defense tightened up, and the Rockets came back to defeat the defending champs 95-92. Each quarter was extremely lopsided, but somehow the game came down to the wire in the final minutes.
The Rockets deserve a lot of credit for their defense and mental toughness. Houston never lost their confidence despite facing multiple double-digit deficits.
It was a fun game to watch and folks on Twitter had just as much fun tweeting out funny memes about the game too. Let’s check out some of the best reactions to Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals from Twitter.
To kick things off, we have to take a look at this creative tweet from Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson. Let’s just say that Deshaun was really feeling the Beard last night.
We’ve all sent that late night text to our crush, but sometimes, it just doesn’t work out. Things didn’t work out so well for Draymond Green on Tuesday night.

A fan in Oracle Arena decided to heckle Chris Paul, but the nine-time All-Star had the perfect response for him.
Somehow, someway a Twitter user found this Tweet from Kevin Durant congratulating a new teammate almost nine years ago.

Forget the NBA 2K cover curse, the Kobe Detail Episode Curse seems to have more serious and immediate consequences. Can someone tell Kobe to do an episode on Kevin Durant before next game? Asking for a friend.

The Warriors are already making excuses after dropping a big game on their own floor.

Finally, there’s no better way to end than with a heartfelt message to the city of Houston from Chris Paul.
Those are a few of the best reactions on Twitter after Houston’s big win in Game 4. Hopefully the Rockets can take care of business again at the Toyota Center on Wednesday night!
