    I've been a staunch supporter of Mike, but last night's snafu was totally unacceptable.

    How do you not have the ball in James's hands to close?
    And to give it to Russ, when he's so obviously not right yet. Hell, he shouldn't have even been on the court for the last few.

    MDA should know better, and if he's going to make those kind of In game/end of game decisions, then I don't know what.

    The plan was to get the ball to Harden, that's on Westbrook.

    Russ shouldn't have even been on the court at that point.

    I have some severe problems with his coaching decisions.
    We are always one or two different decisions from having this thing done in 5 games

    Welcome to the NBA Playoffs where a few plays create wins or losses. Either way, if Russ doesn't get healthy we aren't getting past the Lakers. Actually even if he is healthy, we will have a very tough time and will easily take seven games.

    If they’re locked in t’mowthen it’s on to LBJville. If not, the off season starts real late-early.

    Dadgummit, I ainta ready for the crash’n’burn and what that pyre would require to be fired or hired, swapped or dropped.

    And yet, I am supremely confident that dem nut punching, Stocktonesque Okies will be heading back across the Red River as midnight is a Thunder strike. Out.

    This is just like the Durant/Westbrook pairing, and why it didn't work.

    Westbrook has an extremely strong personality on the floor, and despite Durant, and now Harden, being vastly superior offensive players, Westbrook dominates the ball whenever he wants to and nobody will stop him.

    whatever the plan was, we can Say goodbye to Dantoni. The Rockets will have to get past OKC and then LAK and even then..... I don’t know if that hick of an owner will bring him back. You have to have James getting the ball from the timeout. Russ or butterfingers Gordon getting it to Harden ~ I don’t trust it

    There’s a reason he’s coached forever and never made the Finals. He’s had the honor of coaching MVP Nash, Hall of Famer Kobe, and MVP Harden and NEVER made the Finals. Just a simple run of bad luck....don’t think so. Everybody in Houston needs to quit drinking the kool-aid and wake up. Morey and MDA need to go!!!
