    Just come out with energy. If you miss shots you miss shots...just no more giving up offensive rebounds. Box out. We aren't running anyways, so there's no excuse to not box out.

    Capela needs to stop playing soft
    Eric needs to get going (1-5, 2 points, 2 turnovers)
    Some bench production outside of Austin would be nice
    and damn it, put a body on someone and grab a rebound
    14 offensive rebounds inexcusable
    And they have 20 points off 13 turnovers (0 points off their 4)

    Rebounding issue is long long known........MDA/Morey never addressed that issue...plus they don't play the only viable rebounding combo Capela/Fareid in spite of that working before against GS,

    They're still siding with the Warriors in my opinion.... but not to the extreme. It's because the Warriors are up that they've decided to not cost the Rockets anything so far. We've been busy giving the ball away far too much.

    I laughed so hard when I heard that. So Harden is supposed to drive, check to the ref is down there, then try to score. Gotcha Shaq.

    We have the personnel to make this a winnable game/series but we also unfortunately have a coach who is unwilling/unable to get the right players out on the court to make that happen.

    Rockets just getting killed on the boards and it's the difference in the game. Completely on coaching.

    Capela/Faried/Tucker front court worked so well against the Warriors in 1 game. Why abandon it?

    Nene is far better than Faried at every facet of defense. Dumb D’Antoni thinks he should play over him because of a stupid contested step back from Curry? Brilliant.

    TNT kept showing Curry's wrapper middle fingers and debating how it affects his shot.

    Harden is literally bleeding in the eye and they say no excuses.

    F*** the media!

    We were saying that prior to the second half of game 1, and we really did not make any adjustments. It showed in the first half of this game. I agree that things would improve drastically if we made those changes, but I just don’t know if we’ll do it.

    That first foul on Harden was such BS, Harden beat KD to the lane and KD had ZERO position and Harden gets the charge

    we gotta have guys that can rebound and box out on the floor... we're just hemorrhaging points on those issues...
