    ask them if their heart was warmed on christmas by wilt harden getting only 1 FT, and if they now feel a special bond with adam silver -- do they see him in his glorious aura of benevolence in their dreams?

    then tell them wilt harden coming to rip & shred those very same dreams into a full feature 13 scene nightmare. recommend that they get one of those waterproof mattress covers for when they eventually wake up in a pool of their own piss

    Thought he went 0-8 on 3s ?

    Regardless, hearing Kerr and Green gloat about this being “maybe the biggest game/win they will play this season” is soo god damn annoying, it’s really disturbing how awful we looked yesterday playing a team with 2 legit good starting NBA players.

    Clint fumbling the ball and not being able to finish around the basket, Russ sucking repeatedly and playing stupid all game, everyone not named House bricking shot after shot after shot and not playing anything that remotely looked like defense (that includes Harden !) was pretty sad, but it’s something we’ve seen several times this year with this team so it’s no big shocker, they’ve been outplayed by less talented teams serval times already that have resulted in losses and there are at least a half dozen games they’ve all but lost thanks to half ass effort on D and terrible shooting on O , add in a coach that seems incapable of making adjustments and we are probably looking at a team that will be lucky to advance past the first round in the playoffs (especially if they double/trap Harden).

    That was super classy especially after Klay says after the game "F*** the Rockets." meanwhile Harden over here giving them love.

    Curry is lucky he got hurt, lets be honest, everyone was ready to clown on him for not carrying that team to a respectable record.

    Oh he did.....but 0-5 on open threes....ugh

    Yea honestly, it was really just pathetic all around.

    Well, will see what the team looks like once Gordon comes back. Lets not jump to conclusions. Yea that loss was bad and I dont know how many times these dudes have to get their ass whopped by lesser teams for them to get it but.....lets just have hope.

    Well our coaches stones don’t exist anymore. Letting the inmates run the asylum has always proven wrong.

    Mclemore is basically the Gordon replacement with more athleticism.... The Rockets just have a bad game plan, no excuses.

    Amazing take, considering that the only team that has won more games than MDA coached Rockets has been the stacked best team in NBA history Golden State Warriors.

    Fans love to overreact and grossly exaggerate to support their agendas (previous hot takes/axes to grind), especially after losses.

    When CF becomes rabid and rat infested like this, when even good posters behave like the trolls and self loathing fans I have to step away for a bit lest I get caught up with the tidal wave of BS.

    The Warriors literally own Harden, Morey and MDA. They don't even need stars to beat Houston

    Donkey Green gets away with all sorts of underhanded tactics especially against Capela. I bet you on micro zoom examinations of game footage you'll find Donkey with subtle grabs of the jersey, shoves, etc on Capela and getting away with it like he has been the past couple seasons....Anybody would be a soft 'bitch' if somebody were doing that to them. He is the most athletic and 'somewhat' skilled big in the league and getting rid of him instead of pairing him with somebody like Kevin Love on the cheap would be a big mistake.

    Clint has looked noticeably less athletic lately. Makes sense.

    Rockets truly cursed. Cannot have one damn game with a full healthy roster.

    “The thing we tried to tell them, we talked about, we shot worse against San Antonio, so why did we beat San Antonio?” Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said. “They were trapping, and we shot worse. There are games we shot a lot worse and still won. I just think that defensively, we didn’t get any breaks out, and all the steals, or disrupted them. We didn’t have our energy to play like we needed to play.

    “We just have to get a little bit mentally tougher. When things aren’t going well shooting-wise, we just have to pick it up in other areas and win the game. It happens during a season. You accept it and go on.”

    In the Rockets’ win against the Spurs, they made 4 of 20 3-pointers when wide-open, but shot much worse on open 3s (with the nearest defender four to six feet away) than against the Warriors, making just 4 of 14 of those shots. The Rockets made 7 of 17 open 3-pointers against the Warriors, even while missing 22 wide-open 3-point attempts.

    D’Antoni said the scheme the Warriors used was “the same” as many teams have tried against the Rockets. “We just didn’t play well,” he said.

    Russell Westbrook said the Rockets would feel “great” if teams defend the Rockets as the Warriors did. But did think more attention needed to be paid to the games in which the Rockets succeeded against those trapping defenses.

    “I think it’s very interesting, though, you guys only ask about that when we lose,” Westbrook said. “Ask about it when we win, too. I think it’s funny.”

    The Nets on Saturday will likely use a zone against the Rockets. The Raptors trapped out of the zone, but either way, the Rockets believe they can get the shots they prefer against any defense they are likely to see.

    “Zone, just spread the floor,” D’Antoni said. “Zone probably means James is guarded one-on-one by somebody. We don’t really worry about what other teams do. Sometimes it does work. Something will always work if you don’t attack it right or make shots or move the ball. We’ll try to do what we do and do it at a high rate and then we’ll be fine.”

    Blaming Harden for this loss. LOL at the sheer ignorance of your take.

    Can we ask MDA to stop letting Westbrooks to shoot 3 points? He just keep missing or just low percentage accuracy. If he shoots two, we already won this match. Warriors knows that his inaccuracy, they just double team harden and let westbrooks to shoot. I think MDA should ask Westbrooks to only do slam dunk in this case
