    All we do is chuck 3s & every f*cking team that we play against shoots better than we do & are way more discipline on taking shots than we do.
    Our offense is ugly & it is not okay as the players & coach keep saying to reporters.
    Our defense is f*cking none existing. Enough of these garbage excuses.

    It's a conspiracy, everybody play bad in order for Morey to get fired, so that NBA and Rockets can get back to China. Then everybody can start to earn more again :) Conspiracy! Morey is the new Melo :p

    The heat broadcast guys were laughing out loud when Dumbtoni had Gordon and Tucker as the PF and C . He had Tucker on Bam.it was sad. This man has officially lost it. Senile.The issues on defense are
    Tucker has regressed especially on the ball. He can’t stay in front of quicker guards like the last two seasons

    Clint looks lost, no confidence and less athletic on defense
    Gordon is atrocious on offense but unlike previous seasons where he was a good strong on ball defender he looks slow.
    Switching defense dosent work when you don’t switch or rotate late.

    This team is in shambles

    Tucker’s defense has regressed mostly due to age

    We all knew going in that this year's Rockets would require a boatload of adjustments. That has been the case. However, playing nada defense and not being able to hit wide open shots was not expected. And, as I said before, the Rockets look "out talented" by just about every team they play. Just not enough "horses" in the stall. Gordon and Capela have been especially atrocious. Harden has always been ball dominant and a volume shooter. Actually, Westbrook stunk it up tonight, but has been impressive in other games. May take time to come around, or may need to make some moves. As assembled right now, does this team even make the playoffs?

    I'm waiting for the Rockets to make watching basketball fun again. Morey and MDA have lost their minds with the midget ball madness. I hate it. Its no fun watching our opponents slam it into the hoop with ease. Its no fun seeing a few chunky guys on our team slowly make their way back down the court with no help on defense. It never was fun watching dribble dribble slow it down Harden ISO.

    Harden and Gordon stink from behind the arc. Arms flailing, crying to refs, ugh. Both of them need to give it up to House and Tucker more. They don't deserve to take twice as many 3's. They have missed 102 3's already. That's hard to watch.

    James and Gordon 28 of 130
    Tucker and House 31 of 68

    Tucker .533
    House .467
    Gordon .239
    Harden .200

    Westbrook had a terrible night, but he has been really fun to watch this year. He's averaging 2 steals a game 11 rebounds and 9.8 assists. He and Tucker are the only guys who seem to hustle on every single play, and fight for those rebounds. Too bad it's not enough. Too much ugly going on and Morey and MDA need to fix it. I want to enjoy basketball again.

    This is the worst Rockets game I've seen in a long time.

    If Les was still the owner of this team, someone would've been fired already before the Rockets even got onto the plane.

    A clear message must be sent to the team, this level of effort is unacceptable if your ultimate goal is a title.

    The west is finally open and we're here stepping on our own toes.

    Isn't that the truth? So far, not so good. We might start shooting better but we will still be playing small ball. Morey and MDA are killing our chances by shrinking our starting rotations more and more every year. Lets just hope MDA doesn't go completely mad and start playing 5 guards in the rotation.

    God I hope that family goes bankrupt purely so they don't own the Rockets anymore. Land on their feet with no dramas. But just don't own the Rockets anymore.

    “They jumped on us from the beginning,” Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said. “They outran us and outhustled us and outplayed us. First quarter, they just came out and smacked us, and we just took it.

    “At a certain point, you’ve got to fight. Little like last year, not enough tiger out there. We’re just not playing as hard as we should be playing, especially on the defensive end.”

    “They brought an energy and effort from the beginning of the game we couldn’t match, and it showed. The score showed,” Harden said. “They’re a team that plays hard, extremely hard, on both ends of the floor. We can’t let teams outplay us.

    “Energy and effort has to be there all the time no matter who we’re playing. For whatever reason, it wasn’t there.”

    “Defend,” guard Russell Westbrook said. “We have to defend.”

    “Then we try to overdo it,” D’Antoni said. “You try to compensate for the lack of intensity. Then you start talking and pointing fingers and all that, and it just goes south real quick.”

    “There’s not really good energy with us,” said guard Eric Gordon. “We have to play for one another. For as good a team as we are — I know the type of talent we have — you have to play for each other. Because when you have bad energy, it gets worse for us, and it shows. It’s still early. We’re going to do whatever we can to turn this thing around.

    “Now we have to get back to the basics of playing for one another and having each other’s backs defensively.”

    “We are not in trouble, but if we think we are not in trouble, then we are in trouble,” D’Antoni said. “You have to have that appropriate fear. We have to work our way back.”

    100%, I think it’s time to get worried, I haven’t seen them play this bad in a long long time. I’m fine with the O not performing today, but the defense post wizards game has not changed. WTF are we paying Elston Turner for?? I don’t think me sitting on the bench would be any different. 158, 123, 130 man this **** is unbearable. There comes a time pride should be apart of this, ive played HS ball, if one game doesn’t make you feel a certain way then idk how many more it will take to put some damn effort on that side.

    Hardens selfishness and lack of effort on D along with WB also ball watching has been a bad combo defensively. It might take 1-2 solid defenders for this team to be even average on that side
