The Houston Rockets tie the NBA record for most 3's in a game

Discussion in 'Houston Rockets: Game Action & Roster Moves' started by Fawkward, Feb 5, 2013.

Was it a punk move by the Warriors to foul on every possession to deny the new record?

    They now hold the record with 23 made 3 pointers along with the Orlando Magic (2009).

    Sub-topic: Was it a punk move by the Warriors to foul on every possession to deny the new record? Would McHale have told his players to do the same?

    It's a punk move, but they did it because we tried to set a record. I don't even fault us for that because it's a BIG record to set stat-wise.

    Both teams were pretty classless towards the end lol.

    Whatever, I don't blame them for doing that. Mark Jackson is an old school tough guy with a lot of pride.

    I can understand. It's pretty bad losing in a blown-out and they want that be forever mentioned because of the record. Well, it's on the pedestal anyways alreayd, just the significance of it is slightly lower. Hell of a shooting barrage put on by the Rockets today. :D

    They could have made it a little less obvious, now they look butt-hurt.

    Both teams had non-rotation players trying to earn minutes. Intentionally fouling is ridiculous and Jackson should be fined.

    that was not a punk move at all. if this was happening against us, everyone on clutchfans would be calling the other team so mean for trying to break the record while being up by 30 points!

    it's classless to be chucking up threes while being up by 30.

    Motiej was open for 3 one time for a brief moment, why didn't he shoot it to break the record?? Why is Beverley drive the bucket instead of shooting 3. The Warriors basically let you drive to the basket on purpose. They are stupid...should have known better since the crowd was calling for 3s.

    Really don't blame him. I'm sure he thought we were running up the score (even though it was just the 2nd/3rd stringers trying to show their stuff).

    That said, this is going to be one HECK of a game when we meet Golden State again. I wouldn't be shocked if the GSW fans now have us circled on their calenders. :grin:

    Not bad for the youngest team and least experienced team in the NBA. :grin:
