    Everyone f’in relax. We’re probably not ok for the playoffs but we are definitely winning this game.

    We made a come back against the Knicks but fell short. Clippers just look like they’re a lot better than us. Charlotte have been playing well. Orlando just brought a lot of energy when we were slacking.

    Yes these are all excuses and no this does not mean we are ok or do we have a chance at doing real damage in the playoffs, but we will NOT lose to the Twolves.

    I GUARANTEE IT.

    Just realized how sad it is that I had to guarantee a win against the Twolves

    Yeah, right at the edge. I just wanted to win twice as many as we lost and now that's going to be REALLY difficult.

    Rockets don't trust themselves. Especially the role players. Until that changes, or they magically learn this new defense. They will lose.

    If the Rockets STILL lose to the crappy Twolves I want wholesale changes to the defense and personnel. First of all the full time microball has got to go, Pringles should reserve it for 2nd half/4rth Q and bring back Hartenstein. Dude putting up 30 and 20 in GLeague but still not good enough for 10 mins in a real game? Gimme a break man! Make it Harden centric 1st half with Harty PnRs first half, then make it WB centric/Harden ISO 2nd half. Just run a balance of having legit centers in the game so the Rox don't get outrebounded by 30 at the start.

    Secondly the switch all defense needs to get changed, we need a defense similar to what Celtics had with KG, just protect the paint and 3 pt line leave the mid range for opponents to take their shots. We all know Rox hate mid range, then let the opponent TAKE the mid range. This switch all D is clearly too draining and mentally stressful for the players they can't handle it and shoot their shots at the same time. Stop it.

    I'll pass on this one. Even a win against a crappy team doesn't excite me. I'll wait til we play the Lakers.

    We got this!!!

    Just need to contain Russell and not let any of their wings go off on us with huge games

    As Towns is out, we need to fight and not lose by too much on the boards

    Shoot 33% plus via our threes and we will be able pull out a victory
