    It was great considering our injuries and opponents. Before the GS game, I told myself I'd be satisfied if we went 2-2 over the next four. Even though last night was disappointing, we did just that.

    Now the real test is against inferior competition, let's see if the Rockets can take care of business unlike earlier in the season.

    I thought we did great - was a little disappointed with the end result of the Milwaukee game but then again, we were so depleted that Gerald Green was playing big crunch time minutes and making Brogdon look like an All Star. If we had maybe one more dependable wing/guard defender we could pick up in a trade, we could be scary good....also, we gotta let Harden take the gas off at some point so he has something left for a deep playoff run.

    For the record though - Harden has most definitely unlocked a whole new level in this stretch. I didn't think it was possible but Harden's ceiling is even higher than previously considered.

    Both Nuggets and GS are getting healthier.

    10% at 2
    30% at 3

    Honestly, I am extraordinarily happy with our play, and while I think we've lost a step as a team from last year, we also have Harden playing arguably his best. Once healthy:

    Capela/Nene
    Tucker
    House/Clark
    Harden/Gordon
    Paul/Rivers

    I get a good feeling from that group. We definitely need another sizable rebounder/defender down low, but I don't know what's going on there. Ennis shouldn't really get much PT... I've wanted him to succeed, but his defense and offense are terrible. Hes not MCW bad, but he more often than not produces nothing positive on the court. Hopefully we can close the gap between us and the top seeds in the next month!

    The gap is likely to be the same before all-star break.

    I'm thrilled with going 8-2 in that stretch but I do believe they could have gone 12-0 in the same stretch if MCW played. Yes. I'm saying MCW would have somehow gotten us two wins for games we didn't even play.

    Who could be disappointed with an 80% winning percentage?

    This has been an incredible run.
    I think the thing to look at is. . . The Rockets were COMPETITIVE in every game
    No Blow outs. . . we were a few bounces away from winning them all

    Just hope they won't run dry against the weaker teams. If this team is scaring me on one thing (And by team I mean, Harden) is that they tend to lose focus and energy against weaker teams, and this year, we dont have enough to pull W's without max effort.

    Are you and Yolo done arguing in the CP3 thread? Is it safe to go back and open it? Lol.

    Without cp3 and we still in the playoffs hunt, cant complain, by now I thought we wouldn't even be in the playoffs picture so still happy about what where we are despite the 1-2 record the past 3 games

    None of the above. The correct answer:

    The REST OF THE Rockets MOSTLY merely observed HARDEN KICK Ass

    I'm thrilled with Harden and Autism Quivers opening up their backpacks for us
