    0 chance.

    After the China thing he was already on the hot seat.

    Tilman is dancing right now, writing his apology to China as we speak. He now has a reason other than upsetting China to fire Morey.

    losing always feels like **** but i have always gotten a vibe f indifference from harden lead teams. losing a close game would sting but i would prefer that over a blowout where danny green is outworking your entire roster. that just me tho.

    Did they just show 2 kick balls as examples of great defense?

    You are acting as if he would not be doubled if westbrook wasnt on the court or their coverage is going to change and its not. They have a plan for james and its being executed no matter what.

    i'm ready for the rockets to change back to a traditional nba offense.

    it's obvious this moreyball/dantoni thing can easily get schemed out the playoffs.

    Westbrook either falls or loses the ball almost every possession.

    The Rockets didn’t come prepared to play tonight. The House situation shouldn’t be this big a deal. That is on the coach.

    The Lakers the last few games have shot as many 3’s as the Rockets.... that is on the coaching because we are not taking enough 3’s.

    Westbrook was a trade that the owner insisted on, whatever... but he didn’t need to be playing meaningless bubble games before the playoffs. That is on the coach.

    The Lakers are very good but I watch and see how this is the third straight game where the Rockets have not controlled tempo. We lost game 3 because in part we didn’t take enough 3’s and we are doing it again tonight. That is 100% coaching.

    People think the rockets are gonna go back to a traditional lineup just by getting rid of morey/mda. Not happening.

    It’s not traditional bc you traded for A dumb player like westbrick next to harden

    I dont remember the last time that I was this bored during a playoff game.


    Nothing. Just frustration and annoyance. Zero levity, no runs or few minutes of dominance.

    The Rockets are supposed to be the team playing for their playoff lives, but the Lakers have more more energy on both ends of the floor. It’s embarrassing.

    Virtual crowd looks like the Toyota Center...and they say there's no real home court.

    Death lineup is effective but you can't spam it for 48 mins. Maybe if you had 10 players that have starter efficiency...

    7 dudes or less needs to goto the trash bin.

    Rockets are the only team in the league with 2 former MVP's right? Lol.

    Yeah it's frustrating with Dantoni. He's not an elite coach. Doesn't make the adjustments he needs.
