Are the Rockets too good that games are boring now?

    Not talking about the games in which we face good competition, those games are fun.

    But games where we face completely garbage teams like the Kings, Lakers, Mavericks, and the rest of the teams we will be matching up against soon, they bore me. I understand that Cousins is out tonight for the Kings but truly don't think it would have mattered. We come out firing on all cylinders and they don't even try to fight back. No competition, no suspense, no drama.

    I can't say that I'll be "looking forward" to the next Rockets/Kings matchup or the next Rockets/Sixers game. I look at them as scheduled wins and just keep it moving.

    Even though last year sucked as a season at least I could count on most of the games being close and competitive. This season if I look at a game and think that there's a good chance that we blow them out, my interest level wanes.

    I was actually just thinking the same thing.

    But then I realized that the Kings are just really miserable. At least the sixers try. At least other teams, like the lakers, have some young players who are exciting to see.

    The Kings just make basketball boring.

    I'm not "wanting" anything. Just making an observation.

    I'd rather Rockets be boring and take care of business against scrub teams and blow them out instead of having to scratch because of letting bad teams hang around and hope for Harden heroics under the McFail / BJ era

    And as for entertainment, we do still have Corey Brewer who has a special talent to stand out as the worst scrub even when playing against his fellow scrubs

    No way. Boring was last year.

    And this team still has plenty of room to improve.

    I'm enjoying the wins, watching the young guys develop, the wins, Harden's great season and the wins.
