    Ok, you really don't understand. Good luck with your logic and we talk again in the playoffs.

    I feel like it’s just consistency. Why can we be that great but also that terrible. Especially when we know the nba the media the refs are all against us.

    “Can’t afford it” should be our new slogan. Lol

    No you don’t understand chump, that other team has pros on it too. Pride is a hell of a drug and at times it’ll be the deciding factor. We got stomped on the boards. That’s a bigger reason why we lost tonight but in the end it’s one loss.

    the logic of u frontrunning crybabies is that being 24-11 against teams below .500 is just as important as being 15-10 against teams above .500...the same record against teams above .500 as the Clippers and only eclipsed by the Bucks at 14-8

    since the trade, they have lost to the Suns on the 2nd night of a B2B without Russ and by 2 to the Knicks while beating the Lakers, Jazz, and Celtics on the road and Celtics at home...when all that was happening, I’m sure all u frontrunners were talking about this team winning the title and laughing at the media for doubting, but that same energy disappears whenever there’s any sign of adversity

    very mentally weak

    it was literally just 1 game

    the Clippers have had several bad losses...the Lakers just lost by 20 to Memphis, the same Memphis team we beat by like 30

    Miami just destroyed the Bucks today, but had recently lost to Atlanta

    sh*t happens

    It’s the way we lose these kind of games that disturbing, I get it we won’t win every game, we shot very poorly for 3 qtrs, doesn’t explain a completely **** defensive performance and of most concern how the hell do we win a game we are so dominantly out rebounded in, well we have to shoot better , but when we shoot like **** which Is always a possibility with this team we just aren't gonna win those kinda games. Had we played like this against the Clips we would have lost by 30 + easily... your points are taken we’ve beaten some good teams before and after the trade but this loss we just pretty damn bad no matter how you try to spin it ..:

    First, do not disrespect me because I have not disrespected you at any time. Are we clear?
    So ... I still think you don't understand the point.

    MDA is relying on 3point luck to win Championship. That won’t work.

    Yea there is no such thing as nba math team a beats team b b beats c so a>c

    and you’re also right **** happens

    Russ took the blame tonight, “we were supposed to take care of business”

    can’t wait to see him **** on the clippers Thursday and rock the baby

    thanks for the pep talk everyone. I’m over it

    go rockets

    yes, if the Rockets decide to not give a sh*t on defense for 3 quarters while getting outrebounded by 30, they will get demolished by the Clippers...that’s not some big revelation

    when they play like that against the true contenders in this league then let me know

    the Clippers gave up 130 to a Sixers team without Simmons and Embiid and allowed a career high 39 to some dude named Shake...luckily they squeaked out a win...if they play like that against an actual contender they will get waxed

    For the record I’ve never been “front running” or expecting the championship even since the trade, I’m a fatalist and just don’t see us having quite enough...I will say your analysis of our wins and losses is sound cant fault it at all, yes each of the better teams, save the Bucks, have had bad or embarrassing losses, but to lose to such crappy lottery team mainly through poor effort doesn’t leave me with a warm fuzzy feeling sorry ...

    Sound analysis, still can’t shake the “ I’ve seen this **** before with this Rockets” team feeling ! But I respect your takes !

    I understood it, it just wasn’t a good one

    the way y’all tell it, every other good team is undefeated against these scrub/below .500 teams...well that isn’t the case

    Team just wasn’t in it mentally until mid 3rd quarter. Harden needs to find his groove again. I wouldn’t read too much into this game.
