    Given what was on the line and the circumstances, that was by far the most horrific 12 minutes of "basketball" in Rockets history.

    Nobody stepped up.

    CP0 dribbles the ball for 20 seconds doing nothing.

    James Harden shoots zero times, doesn't get to the line

    CC not grabbing rebounds and not doing a thing out there

    MDA just standing there on the sidelines

    entire team deciding not to defend anymore

    Absolute ****.

    Rockets have a real chance of choking game 6 too, just like choking against the Spurs in game 6 when they were without Kawhi.

    Harden got doubled every time he touched the ball, someone else needed to step up.

    They shot nothing but 3s no one attacked it’s like they got nervous for some reason.

    Like OMG we can actually go up 3-2 I’m scared now let’s just shoot 3s

    i didnt realize james played that many minutes. we cant play him that many minutes IMO, but the others have to play well enough we can afford to rest him.

    It’s very consistent with MDA.

    James didn’t do anything until the last 2 minutes?

    That was CP0 running the show. Lin trolls like Lorna malvo want us to believe he runs the team better then harden

    Idk if they felt bad about KD or what. I saw harden smiling when we were down 4 with 30 seconds left. Idk if that was a bad thing

    CP couldn't handle the ball, neither shot the ball, Clint su**ed inside -> Do not have to guard them tight -> James Harden got doubled, tripled. Everything is on CP and CC

    Unfortunately I can't argue here. Given the circumstances and the magnitude of the situation, that was about as cowardly and soft as I've seen from this team.

    Dubs basically said anyone is going to beat us, except for Harden. They doubled him and made him get rid of the ball. This is why we got CP3, and dude didn't show up. Don't even let me get started on Clint.

    It wasn't that horrific. The Warriors out scored us 32-27. The ball bounced the Warriors way. It happens.

    If Durant is out, then I expect the Rockets to win game 6. Then it all comes down to game 7. I really expect us to win the series.

    The Warriors are still a good team, so it won't be easy. But, I expect the Rockets to win.

    Horrible. No sense of urgency. From MDA with his lack of coaching to Harden shrinking... not to mention garbage ass paul and capella... we had our chances.

    This team is so ****ing mentally weak compared to last year and dont have the talent to compensate

    Never have a "hard fought" loss. Its always start the game half asleep or a complete choke job at the end

    This is what MDA should have done to Curry when KD went out
