    Wide open

    We are gonna have MDA stans in here saying ... but but but , hes not the defensive coach.

    No , hes the head coach. And we didn't wake up to a home game vs the kings. We played 7 guys in the second half. and one more guy 3 min in the first.

    Same tried and true short rotation , no defense, rely on 1-2 superstar crap hes been doing his entire career.

    IM not a tilman fan. But, hes right that MDA is not the guy.

    Yeah Bjelica hit a 3 from around 35 feet. It was an impressive shot but no one was close.

    Once again, points taken away from Harden come back to haunt us.

    Refs WIN

    Disappointing from our best defender. I knew someone was going to end up wide open because we would be too worried about hield since he just made one.

    Meaning they’re pretenders. In this conference and league, you have to beat 3 teams that’ll be executing playoff mode defense in a 7 game series (assuming the first round is a cake walk).

    Sac got to more loose balls down the stretch and the defense again wasn't good enough down the stretch. Refs with another bad game as well didn't help.

    Tucker screwed up. He immediately backpedaled towards the paint as the ball was inbounded.

    Looked like harden's fault to me, I'm guessing they were supposed to switch everything but he dove to the rim with Barnes when should've let PJ cover him. Instead Tucker hesitated cuz he realized harden was chasing and left Bjelica wide open

    I'm too disgusted to even replay it. No excuse for that kind of a lapse with 1 second. Guard the freaking 3 point line man. You knew they weren't playing for the tie.

    Maybe Harden should strive harder for defensive player of the year instead of MVP.

    refs will fck us come playoff time without question

    Why should I believe the Rockets will be able to overcome 5 on 8 against at least 2 elite level teams in the playoffs?
