    Nuggets
    @Wolves
    @Nuggets
    @Jazz
    @Blazers
    Mavericks
    Pelicans
    Hornets
    @Lakers
    @suns (b2b)

    We then have the Jazz and Celtics right after.

    We lost 5 of 6. Do you think we can crack .500 during this upcoming stretch? Do you think we can do it on a 7 man rotation?

    We have to at least got 5-5

    W - Nuggets - Should be a Win - they are good but we are good against them
    W - @Wolves - Should be a Win
    Maybe - @Nuggets- Should be a Win - but I doubt we sweep them this year
    Maybe - @Jazz - TOUGH TOUGH TOUGH GAME
    W - @Blazers - Should be a Win - they are good but we are good against them
    Maybe - Mavericks- TOUGH TOUGH TOUGH GAME
    W -Pelicans- Should be a Win
    W - Hornets- Should be a Win
    Maybe - @Lakers - TOUGH TOUGH TOUGH GAME
    W - @suns (b2b)- Should be a Win

    6-4 should be the bottom
    8-2 maybe the top

    Rocket River
    At this point I have no idea though .. . praying for no lower than 5-5

    I don't trust this team to win any games right now. Even if we go up 20 against any of these teams in the first half, we somehow will blow the lead in the 2nd.

    Why should any of those "should be a win games" be considered such? How can you possibly say that after watching this team this season?

    The Rockets blow leads to everybody. They lack effort against everybody. They don't play defense against everybody.

    They can lose to anybody. There is no "should be a win" on the Rockets schedule with how bad their effort, coaching, and situational awareness is.

    This has gotten to the point that I can't even begin to look at this schedule and dare predicting anything.

    Godspeed.

    The only game I see us winning is against the wolves.... and I even have my doubts we'll beat them. We can't even beat any team at the moment, and we've played some truly trash teams lately. We should have lost to the Hawks as well.

    IF there were not playing like they are . . .
    these should be wins under normal circumstances
    but
    we all know the circumstances are not normal

    The only expectation that you can have for this season is that the Rockets will blow double digit leads pretty much every single time they get them.

    That’s it.

    Rockets could win to any team or lose to any team. Yall should stop looking at the schedule. They play Denver next and it is a must win game.

    Two possible strategies we can use:

    Shorten the rotation to 5.
    Take more 3s. ALL THE THREES.

    Been saying it for about 2 weeks now, this team is going to plummet right out of the West playoff standings by the end of this upcoming stretch of games. Harden is a MASSIVE problem that isn't going to suddenly resolve itself against these better teams. Hate to be the bearer of bad news but I think we will not even make the playoffs this year we are that awful on Defense and woefully predictable on offense with Harden playing so selfishly and stupid, in a system that just doesn't work with this current roster.

    I see us losing as many as 7 of those games easily

    Rockets have lost like 7 “must win” games this year

    Hopefully THIS is the one that sinks through.

    Sounds like peak Dantoni.. he probably went into our locker room after this game saying,

    "Guys, we lost because we didn't take 30 more 3s. We need to keep jacking them up, trust in the process!"

    "Oh, and Isaiah, you've been demoted to the G-league."

    Well if you cannot win a game without an opposing center and your former starter finally hitting and playing defense as well as the oldest wing on the team contributing then there’s little to go by. Maybe a losing streak hitting 10 will wake up someone. Trading deadline is very soon since they moved it up to beginning of february. Not in our favour. Let’s see.

    I'd say the last two were must wins, the others they were still sitting pretty in the standings but when your last 10 record is 4-6...that's bad, it has to change right away.

    Sit Capela, start Tucker at 5.

    Rocket not winning anything with MDA and his rotations. I'm kind of glad Rockets lost because then it would have embolden MDA's dumb ass strategy playing Thabo and PJ at 5 even more.

    what trade out there makes us better ? serious question.

    i wish we would fill that roster spot we have from cutting clark. thabo should not be in the rotation and tucker needs his cut almost in half.

    My heart says 10-0 but my mind says 0-10. I’ll go with 5-5.

    Don’t forget our SOS was middle-to-easiest in the league most of this season. It’s only now when it starts to get harder. We could be 8th seed soon or even out of the playoffs.
