    Huge pair of games coming up. Of course the Denver game is more winnable and the Utah game is a huge test. I would be happy with 1-1. A win today could give us a nice boost going into tomorrow. I am excited!

    I wonder if Westbrook could make an exception and play both these games. It would really boost morale considering the way Harden has been playing. Honestly, he looks like Luke Wilson in the Royal Tenenbaums in that scene where he’s taking his shoes and one sock off on the tennis court.

    Rockets had a back to back at Den then at Utah in 2017 I remember the Rockets won both Games.

    Should've won the Championship, Adam Silver, Scott Foster and goons destroyed that hard work by the players.

    D’Antoni is r****ded. Westbrook is not even that old. Lebron plays back to back why is D’Antoni being a bitch.

    It’s tough cuz a lot of our team wasn’t emotionally able to play. But they this is life. Many were close to Kobe. For the rockets as a team. We need to just focus on seeding for matchups. Stay out of the 4-5 whole is most important. It’s either 2/3 or 6/7.

    Nah what happens is after being WCF/2nd round team for 5-6 years. Regular season loses value to guys like EG, harden etc. what we need to do is focus on matchups. As long as we avoid 4-5 and get the 2/3 or 6/7 seeds we will be a 2nd round team/ WCF teams. Like Fertitta says once ur in the WCF anything can happen.

    Yes. Tonight is a guaranteed loss. That is expected.

    Doesn't really matter, though. The damage for this season is done by our consistent choking of leads and games to bad teams. Rockets asked for a low seed, and they are going to get a low seed.

    Do not think we are screwed tbh, just mediocre at this point. Too darn mediocre to my liking and bad defensively.

    Lebron played 55 games last season. Lebron didn’t play the last 6 games of the 18-19 season so he basically had from March 29th to the start of the season to get his body right.

    I guess Russ actually didn’t have offseason surgery and not get cleared to even do 5 on 5 in practice until the end of training camp. Also, it’s not MDA who decides who is and isn’t playing, or do the Rockets not have a training staff and medical team?
