    Westbrook is the better athlete IMO though.

    I do think Westbrook was raised that way instead of somebody telling him to push the pace.......other than his dad and childhood coach....who recognized this.

    Westbrook has this infinite drive in him which is why it is frustrating to see him at times.....with turnovers and out of control in the Playoffs.

    Can you believe the Rockets clobbered the Lakers 14-4 on the offensive glass?

    Their IQ clearly isn't the best. Because it was literally only a few days ago we went through this exact same scenario, with Jalen again silencing his own fans.

    All we want is consistency.

    His slurpers make it really hard to appreciate him the few games he actually does play well.

    Give it a rest bro. All I ever see you post is negative things about Rockets players.

    That's strange, do you ever open your eyes?

    I post a lot of positive things about a lot of players.

    Maybe you're just pigeonholed into reading comments about Green's negative play. Give it a rest bro, I said he played good tonight.

    Imagine the shock - credit gets given where credit is due!

    Pipe down now clown. If you're going to say something so obviously incorrect, make it something interesting.

    This team goes as Green goes

    He was really good tonight and they win. If he's bad they lose. If he's ok it's a roll of the dice.

    Wonder what it would take to get one of the PG Jones brothers or Brogdon?

    Usually can't win with FVV playing like crap.

    Listen here mate, we appreciate the international fans and all but if you are just going to trash the players of our team, we don’t have much use for you. You don’t catch me or other Houstonians on Australian sports websites criticizing your players. Aren’t you just a Landale only fan anyways?

    You put 'players' with a plural at the end.

    This is a mistake you made in your first comment too, which I called you out for.

    You'd think after being called out for lying, you would learn your lesson and either a) be quiet, or b) learn to post something with more substance (and truth)

    You've failed at both of those things.

    Check the Amen thread. Or the Whitmore one. Or the Sengun one. Or the Fred one. Or the Dillon one. Or the Jabari one. I'm trashing them am I? Funny, I see the opposite of 'trashing' comments in those threads. Or is it you just don't understand the meaning of the word?

    Let me spell it out for you again because you haven't quite grasped the whole comprehension thing yet - credit gets given where credit is due.

    I got a good chuckle out of your little 'I'm American therefore my fandom is better than yours from another country' schtick & your Landale comment - however embarrassing it may have been on your behalf. That's a new low I've seen a poster sink to on this board before. You should aim for more comedic posts in the future (however unintentionally funny they are) because it's much better than your blatant lying posts.

    I really shouldn't because by your last post I feel I'm talking to someone who's working with a toolbox missing a few tools - but I'll resort to your 'my fandom is better than yours' pathetic level. Do you want to bet who has spent more money on Rockets games? Have you ever brought a random Clutchfans member to sit courtside for free before? Like I said before, pipe down.

    Great game, though not stomping on them further after the 30pt lead was a bit disappointing. They got it back to 10 and that should just not happen. Green showing way more confidence, finishing shots he's been missing at the cup, rebounding, even if he still does that weird dribble where he just begs to lose it because he puts his body at this weird low angle as he slips 9/10. Whitmore's stretch in the 1st half was just beautiful! Sengun's dunk to start the 3rd was really awesome too. Jabari with a great return. I must confess though, Brooks needs to cut out the nonsense. Getting under people's skin is one thing, but these weird pushes and swipes are becoming Draymond like.

    FVV needs to get that 3-ball rhythm back, but 14:2 assist:turnover last night is a very, very good sign. I got nothing but flowers to throw at his feet. That said, would be nice to see Amen with more PG minutes-- that'd help Amen, and probably FVV's 3% (aka legs).

    Would like to see a little more Uncle Jeff on the floor. Need to deduct a few DB9 minutes-- he fouls too much and too flagrantly. To me, Uncle Jeff has been the most impressive surprise this season, followed by the shock of how much Landale has sucked and DB9's .388 3%.

    The Lakers have the greatest overgrown tamper tantrum throwing toddler of all time.

    Everything becomes much simpler if you just play to win the game instead of twisting yourself into knots over awards and accolades

    Jaters are still furious? Even after a nice, long sleep?

    Brah you spent most of tonight after a great win b****ing about Green fans. You obviously have trigger issues when Green plays well. Why can't you see how obvious it is to theirs party spectators?

    They couldn't sleep last night. Elevated stress levels are bad for sleep.
