    If we don't trade Harden this off season, we're truly ****ed going into next decade.

    We're going to end up fighting for the 8th seed year in and out as other teams get better and we get older.

    Just give them to a desperate team like the Knicks and take all they have.

    Harden would love it in NYC. Money, fashion, strippers.

    Hopefully the new GM will be better at drafting than Morey.

    They lit them on fire. That entire series was a shootout.

    Curry dropped 30 in the second half and it STILL came down to the last seconds, because Houston was fine on offense.

    they needed to simply add RoCo to the core and they beat GS in 5 or 6.

    Said it last year...

    The Rockets are like a video game boss.

    They have a pattern and if you don't figure it out fast enough you get down quick like OKC did. It's not an easy pattern to master, but once you do (as the Lakers have) it's figured out.

    They're done with now. Like a scripted boss, they have nothing else to go to but hope that the pattern trips the Lakers up every now and then.

    Absolutely.....the effort and urgency has been laughable...and Jimmy...my goodness, he disappeared. JH and WB is a failed experiment and gave up waaay too much .

    So...

    How does this team not come out pissed and firing on all cylinders? How are they not drooling underdogs when coming onto the court? Htf are the Lakers out hustling us when we're down, undermanned, and undersized?

    The worst part of this game is we're down 2-1 and came out with ZERO hunger, none.

    Its one thing to be beat down due to being out-talented. This team just showed zero heart. I'm completely deflated, what a letdown. A waste of our time and energy. I dont care whose to blame, MDA, Harden, WB, House, wtvr fck all of them. If you're in this league and dont want it enough to fight for it, then make room for players who give a dam.

    Lebron was pissed on the sidelines when we got it down to like 15 in the 3rd. He knows whats up, he knows if they let their foot up Rockets can come back and steal a win and change the momentum of the series.

    Harden has not disappeared they are doubling teaming him, his teammates need to help him and hit some open shots.

    Even if that's true which I dont believe, it was nowhere near the magnitude that i was here. It would not happen to Chris Paul being on this team, anyone arguing that Westbrook is a better fit here is flat out wrong.

    He's getting double-teamed. He also still has 15 points, 10 assists, 1 steal and 2 blocks.

    We're losing because our defense has been trash in the last 3 games.

    Lebron went to that spin move once too many. Double dribble, then now a steal by Harden/Russ.

    The Rockets were built to beat the Warriors...not the Lakers. We need a quality big and a coach that will play him.

    what a dumb shot by austin rivers.

    could've made it interesting but they always do something stupid to ruin momentum.

    No ITS BECUASE WESTBROOK CANNOT SHOOT HE KILLS THE SPACING.

    This would not work with Paul. Two quarters dont compare to 8 quarters this year.
