    From up 21 to down in the 3rd is just crazy. The Rockets are better than this!! Great write-up. How about that rotation though??

    We need to discuss this. I remember thinking that Ryan was a guy that needed to take like 14 shots a game, 9 threes a game. Missing the shots hurts, but not taking the shots hurts even more. I am the type of person that gets upset when Ryan misses 4 threes in a row, but I will get more upset on the idea that Ryan would rather pass up that 5th shot than him missing that 5th three.

    I had an eye roll when he said "I can't believe it. I made one!" I can't believe it. You took a three instead of passing out!

    Green is a beautiful dunker.

    A good win. If we can get a Gerald Green equivalent at the 4, we will be much better. I hope Morey can get JJ
    Hickson from China by the February deadline.

    Isn't Juilus Randle on the block? I wonder what it would take to get him. Laker fans seem to hate him as does the organization. He's only 23 and has shown flashes, especially against Houston. I just think some of LALs talent is being held back and not developed correctly. I think they gave up on Dlo early and Ingram could be reaching All-Star status on the right team.

    3-point shooters in basketball are like kickers in football: When they lose their confidence, they lose their game.

    Ryno is passing up so many shots, it's pretty clear he's spooked.

    Clutch has pointed out, that the Lakers are looking to dump salary, which will make it difficult for the Rockets to be a trade partner with them.

    Great to read more @Clutch recaps! Also, let's give up to Clutch for the new HTML Responsive Blog/article section.

    Green will come down to earth in that shooting, but boy is this fun.

    Every win is a good win at this point. Rockets have a good team but the injuries are putting them in a scenario where every game is a dog fight. Team needs to keep scraping.

    Ryan Anderson's "I finally made a 3pt shot"....man. 19M a year for a 3pt shooting specialist.

    Anderson passed up at least 3 open shots this game. He hesitates for a second or two before shooting then the defender closes out. Idk why he's on a team where he's expected to jack up shots and he's afraid to shoot. It just makes it worse and no one on the coaching staff has talked to him about it yet?
