    Same.

    But need to play the hot hand and sit the cold ones.

    Rockets need more talent around Harden and Russ, when you only have 2 starters in double digits there is more wrong than just the star players.

    Rockets just got destroyed even with Russ. This defense that teams are playing is a problem

    this effort thing is just stupid. Stop with the Barkley take already

    Damn I just checked to see if the Rockets play tonight and see that they already played and lost - to the ****in Hornets. What a disgrace. Not even gonna watch the highlights of this game.

    I guess the team is OK with getting no higher than the 4 seed.

    I think we have to start considering if James is either hurt...mentally or physically. Are he and Russ getting along well? Is there some nagging injury he's going through? Whatever it is, it needs to get sorted out before the playoffs, obviously.

    Sometimes there are reasons why superstars haven't won a championship yet. Harden lacks the fire and the willingness to adjust (and take constructive criticism) you need to become a champion.

    Westbrook doesn't have to play against trash teams like the Hornets to win games. If this team is that dependent on WB (with a supposed top-5 player still healthy) to beat bad teams, they have no chance in the Playoffs.

    Rockets lost by 2 to the Knicks in a game they coasted, Jeff Green was played 14 minutes against the Knicks and got 0 rebounds and had 4 points and played bad defense. I didnt watch the Clippers game. This game...I did watch and while Jeff played well, I dont expect him to be this way every night.

    You might be right if this was any other player than Jeff Green.

    Hornets are 25th in defensive efficiency. This ridiculous man. I dont want to hear about the lack of a lob man, I really dont. If yall wanna talk about "excuses" thats the worst one.

    You are clearly not a Harden supporter. A Harden supporter would get behind him when he's clearly struggling.... first time he's really struggled for the Rockets, in like 8 years. 2 bad months in 8 years and he gets **** on. Got to love it.

    You mentioned the 10 turnovers, yet he always has a high number of turnovers due to the high usage rate and ambitious passes. So making that as an excuse is clearly nitpicking. Now if you want to blame it on his 3pt shooting or not taking more mid-range shots, then they're better reasons you could use.

    And yet again, you don't love Harden. You're a typical fan who gets on a player when he's in a bit of bad form but never really congratulates him when he's doing well.

    Now.... House is offering us absolutely nothing to out game. Tucker doesn't offer us anything on the offensive end. Gordon is shooting horribly this season. There as so many other players who offer us basically nothing in most games. But do I hate these guys or nitpick their games? No. I get behind them as soon as the next game starts. I want them to do well and be the difference. You guys aren't the same way with regards to Harden. You nitpick his performances and constantly blame him when we lose. Look at the amount of negative threads that have been made about Harden this season.

    So please, stop saying you're a supporter when you're truly not. Just say I'm a supporter of the team and that you want what's best for the team. At least then I'd respect your post more.

    House and Bmac were horrendous tonight...sit one of them on the bench and start Green. Green plays well with Beard & Brodie.

    Imagine being so blinded as a homer that you think Harden has played only 2 poor months in his 8 years here. Jesus Christ.

    I keep saying this. Our supporting cast has been trash for years. The reason why Harden can't drive to the basket more is because he's constantly having 2 or 3 guys on him as soon as he drives. He never had that attention like 2 or 3 years ago, it's only really been a problem in like the last 18 months or so.

    If we had a supporting cast who could hit consistent 3pt shots or create more when they have the ball, Harden wouldn't get that much attention and be able to have the space Westbrook gets.

    I agree 1000%.

    But isnt it crazy that a 30 point triple double is a below average performance?

    Most franchises would be celebrating, even in a loss.

    Harden is easy target, but House and Tucker really need to pull their weight too if they are going to remain starters.
