    I get that Shumpert can guard some players in the league, but his Offense is atrocious at times, Atrocious!

    Also cannot rebound and get the ball moving.

    Both Wolves fans and the team were celebrating like it was the NBA Finals. Pathetic.

    Our defense is pathetic.

    We lose becoz of poor defense effort.

    Tucker and Shumpert are overrated on defense.

    This. Missing Capela is making all the difference. Capela could actually switch and guard the perimeter, catch lobs, complete dunks, block shots etc.

    Capela being out is killing the Rockets. Him being passable at staying in front of guards on switches is one of the keys to defense. Faried just cannot do that. He bites on every fake and over plays things.

    At least James didn't fall down on that BLOCKED three.

    Only 4 FTAs too. Usually a recipe for an L.

    It's basically Game 3 from last year's playoffs. Teague has a ridiculous game (25/12 and just 1 turnover), and they shoot way over their season average at the 3pt line (50%).

    It would be really cool to add both Capela AND House during the all-star break. Then we can destroy the league in the 2nd half.

    This version of Harden just keep proving what Kobe said is right : will never win a championship.

    Keep turning yourself to just a volume shooter and fishing for numbers while constantly sleeping on defense, not moving the ball around, is just disgusting to watch.

    Faried is an aweful defender. He got beat so many times off the dribble and barely contested when his man was about to shoot threes. We miss Capella and House a lot.

    Our depth is so telling with this team. Any of our starters get injured for 2 weeks and we turn into a .500 or worse team.

    Harden goes out, we're instantly a lottery team, even with CP0 healthy.

    Morey has failed to address this team's issues we had last year. No decent back-up big.
