    Green was 13/21. Ya Gordon and KPJ shot poorly today.

    Need more Eason involved, and not as a reaction but part of a concerted effort to get him part of the rotation.

    You need to come to terms with the fact that EG will retire a Rocket. It sucks but I have finally accepted this.

    Sengun is bigger than Bruno.
    He was same height as Adams

    Silas is in love with KPJ you can tell he tries to maximize HIS development instead of Jalen and sengun and now bari.. that is the only reason i think bruno is in the starting lineup. Bari, sengun and Jalen need to play together.

    bari in the corner booty naked.. tell your son kpj to pass the ball to the corner!!!!

    This was a fantastic game, I was a little surprised to roll in here afterwards and see a lot of negativity.

    That was last year's WC #2 seed and the Rockets (a team that needs to lose), hung with them for 3+ quarters and then secured the loss. Best case scenario, and good individual performances by multiple individuals.

    Loved that game, not even angry, but if I’m being honest Jabari Smith looked pretty bad. He was a significant liability out there tonight. Still, I loved the fight. This team is very easy to like.

    It's crazy to me that Sengun/Jabari/Jalen are on this team and the interactions between them are so fleeting.

    At this point I'm just blaming Silas. KPJ does as much as he can do given his skillset and is just being told what to do by the coaching staff.

    We've improved a little from last year. We've gone from D- to a D+ I guess.

    This is my problem with KPJ, he should be deferring to Jalen at minimum. Should also play off ball more in half court sets with Alp.
    And just ****ing pass the ball to the corner instead of taking super contested shots

    Absolutely one of the worst games I've seen him play,including Auburn. I am understanding that he wasn't very involved in the offense in the 1st half. He is a rhythm shooter... he starts out making his shots he can really go off. At Auburn he was THE MAN.....that is not the case here. He'll make the 3's as we go along, I think how he steps inside and if he occasionally drives to the basket will really open up his game.

    Because you are training him to go against the BEST lineups in the league. Hiding him does him no good.

    Green was amazing today. But he got soo passive in the fourth. Didn't make any sense. He was cooking konchar then didn't ask for it. All those Kobe and MJ comparisons I don't see, they woulda never passed soo much. Even rookie Kobe had mama a mentality take shots.

    LOL. We lost 20 games in a row last season. Anyone with eyes can see we’re much better.

    They should all throw food at Silas and refuse to do as they are told while abandoning their team. Maybe then Silas will also cry for them and give them every chance to succeed.

    Green has to play with more fire down the stretch. Should’ve had 40 easily tonight
