    Nobody has, it’s unprecedented which is why it makes people question it and even uncomfortable. People are negative because they fear us, though of course some doubts are warranted.

    Two MVPs in the backcourt with many disruptive defenders, quick wings, great iso play and a team ready to just hoist 50-60 threes is unorthodox and a rare group / mix of people and combination given our system and style.

    Just imagine if we actually had a Reddick or another excellent 3pt shooter, we’d be unstoppable. That’s Morey’s final challenge: get the right guys to take this style to the max.

    Melo and Beasley would have been perfect for us

    Heh. Did you miss the part about disruptive defenders and quick wings?

    I wish the clip would’ve kept going. No team out of 144 try’s has ever won a game when they were out rebounded by 29 and shot less than 40% from the field.

    I'm so tired of the term "upset" or "upsetting" when it comes to contenders.

    If the Kings come back and beat the Raptors, that's an upset. If the Nets come back and beat the Lakers, that's an upset.

    If a contender comes back and beats another contender, that's not an upset. That's just one good team losing to another good team.

    Your troll game has gotten really weak.

    I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you're just not in game shape yet.

    LOL @ the last 15 seconds of the video.

    Skip goes into conspiracy theory mode and says Harden missed it softly to the left in the Mavs game so that RoCo could get the stealth tip-in to force OT.

    Aight, that's enough national media for me.

    Sure, let's just make a Rockets reject all-star team:

    C Dwight Howard
    PF Donatas Motiejunas
    SF Michael Beasley
    SG Carmelo Anthony
    PG Jeremy Lin

    That's a whole team of "Clutchfans superstars that Harden ruined." I'm sure they would win a lot of games.

    So Skip Bayless did not think James Harden missed the that free throw on purpose. Interesting!

    It's the dumbest thing lmao.

    Misses it to the left where Porzingis is? The tallest dude in that area? Then Covington had to either beat Kleber / Kleber had to not box out for Covington to even have a chance on the literal other side of the rim?

    Can't believe Skip brought it up and I can't believe Shannon also went with it.

    To be fair, Tucker and Covington did say that they had talked about these types of strategies at practice. Tuckers job was to get up underneath of Porzingis and seal him off so that Covington could shade underneath and Kleber couldn't follow. Presumably the roles would be reversed if it went to the other side. Now obviously a ton had to go right all at one time, but there was some amount of design in the play.

    I just think there's too much chance involved, to make it a successful play off a design, especially since the third closest Mavericks player can get to the ball before the third closest Rockets player (Harden). Plus, mistimed jumps, ball going in a different direction because of the chaos of hands slapping at the ball, etc.

    Nonetheless, I'm glad the result turned out the way it did lol

    Media Sensitive Clutchfans act like the Fat Cheerleader when she thinks the Quarterback is staring at her, but really it's the other cheerleader to the left

    I gotta say , out of all the first takeish spots ive seen on the rox-bucks game , skip seemed to have the most geniune excitement for the rockets win. I dunno if he lives on the west coast, but at the very least he was up watching the game to tweet at the end haha.

    I dont know how any true bball fan wouldnt have been entertained by the rockets last night . We showed true perseverance and grit to fight against a bigger and very good team.

    Its funny how they all recite the same stats tho . like , cmon is there only 1 researcher for ALL of these sports shows ? is the economy THAT bad ?
