    The lakers sure get a lot of "clean blocks" lol

    They are definetely better than us but it's kind of laughable how they try to block every layup attempt and never get a whistle against them

    . All we need is Ben Simmons 3 points, 7 Reba, 6 assists a night , did y’all know he’s better than The Dream on defense?

    Lakers would sweep us in a 7 game series, that much is clear...but it feels like they NEVER foul, at least not when it matters.

    When they are up 25 then sure...

    Rockets are a great team for smoking weed to and playing NBA2K21 while the game is on. I mean the players do it, not the fans.

    Kind of funny most the league thinks you do not need big men anymore, but AD and 270lb LJ look like locomotives out there.

    Does anyone see us beating the Spurs? I certainly don't.

    Put ben in the starting lineup Rockets have nothing to lose.

    is House the MVP of the team?

    I don't buy this "whole new system" excuse.

    There is no system.

    I actually agree. It was a dumbass decision to cut Green.

    Bias aside, he can actually hit shots.

    We look thoroughly dominated but at the same time, take a step back and realize these are the Lakers - championship squad. We are still a brand new team with 90% roster turnover. If we looking like this against the Hornets or something like that then I'm going to start worrying.

    The same defensive mistakes game after game. Literally no improvement.

    More than half the roster are not nba level players; can’t shoot, can’t dribble, can’t defend. Of course we look like crap out there.

    We sold low and bought high on too many assets and tanked the talent level from that 17-18 season. None of this is unexpected.

    He doesn’t really have a coherent one. He isn’t running the exact thing they ran in Dallas... the bigger issue is defensively he either doesn’t know what he wants them to consistently do, he teaches it poorly or it is a bad fit for the roster.... regardless it is on him.

    Some of this stuff shouldn’t fall on Silas but a lot of it should when it comes to the poor preparation, head scratching strategic decisions and complete lack of identity.

    He inherited a top 6-7 team in the league and right now he has managed to turn that into a bottom 8 team. He deserves more opportunities and let’s see how he does after Harden and Tucker are moved; but he was a terrible choice for a veteran team. That reflects on management and ownership and not Silas.

    I don’t think Silas should lose his job or anything, but I do think fans need to be aware this isn’t going to work and part of it is Silas, part is the players and a lot is management/ownership.

    Silas is clueless...
    Not head coach material YET
    I don’t think his team respects him...

    I’ve never seen an NBA team get this dominated in back to back games since... well last year Rockets against this Lakers team lol..
