    Just play hard. No one expects you to win, so you have nothing to lose. Close out on defense like you have the last few games. Take your shots. See where the chips fall. There's no shame in getting beat by a better team. But sometimes the better team gets beat.

    No, 41-41 means we barely made the playoffs (backed in really thanks to a epic choke job by the Jazz).

    We are 0-0 now....but that will change by next weekend when we are eliminated at home.

    41-41 means we won some good games against good teams, won some bad games against bad teams, lost some bad games against good teams, and lost a ton of really bad games against the Nuggets, Nets, etc.

    It means our team is very erratic and nobody can predict how they will perform in a given night - but usually it didn't go well.

    So - wooooo - here we go.

    I'm channeling my inner Golden State Warrior. I will continue to slaughter this pathetic team just like the Warriors will for the next 4 games.

    This is what is needed for the team to be better long term. Sometimes you truly have to be destroyed so that you stop having illusions about how bad you truly are.

    It is going to hurt, but it needs to happen because apparently these fools actually think they have a chance.

    You know where the ignore button is.

    I DO like that now we have Dmo, Bed, Beasley and McDaniels.

    I also like that we blew out our last 3 opponents. I don't care who they were, THATS the team we saw last season. Taking care of business. The Mavs and Suns losses cost us a first round series with OKC, but oh well its meant to be.

    If this goes more than 5 games, I'll be happy. If we won? Thats ridiculous and my head might explode.

    If we lose? Well, we lost to a once in a lifetime team that will probably be a repeat champion.

    Either way, let's get a coach now! :D

    In last years western conference we would have been 10th place. We have virtually dropped 8 seeds while being healthier, and more experienced roster. What 41-41 really means is that we are garbage.

    Our only shot this series is if Dwight turns into finals Orlando Dwight where he erases everything in the middle for the opponent.

    Finishing 41-41 means that the Rockets finished 32 games behind the team they will face in the first round of the playoffs. You are what you record says you are.

    Turned the Corner, there is semi-truck heading down the freeway! Rockets should be free stroking all series long. According the experts, have no chance to get by the beloved league Warriors.

    True but the team never got rolling with what in the end of the season turned out to be a team, that finally got it going at the end of the season.

    Barnes will kill harden in the post and off screens for 3's. Beverly has to step is game up and get around the double/triple screens GSW uses. Mcdaniels doesn't have a chance at that because one bump and he falls to the floor. Also , Livingston kills the rockets every game so KJ has to be ready to guard him with second unit
