    Effort & Energy...Effort & Energy.....it was not there tonight and that my friends is inexcusable. Lakers looked like the team on the brink...outplayed,outhustled, outrebounded. We took it to the "House" before the game started.

    Well that game sucked....the refs suck...House situation sucks...LeBron running the NBA sucks. Never will I spend one single $ on this league until the NBA is under control of legit leadership. LeBron needs to be reigned in.

    Rockets need a new coach and new system.

    Austin Rivers changed the game ball pressure was better in the second half that was a way late call. You cannot let people walk into their offense. When Westbrook and Austin in the game they are more aggressive 94 ft. Its not the scheme we just dont make critical decisions in a timely fashion. James Harden must have the Game of his life everybody has to

    If you double-team Harden, you beat the Rockets. He's our main scoring threat.

    Harden and Westbrook out on the floor together does not work out consistently. Small ball doesn't work if you have no paint defense or if you can't hit the 3pt shot consistently.

    Small ball has been a fun experiment, but it's time to get us a big defensive center. It gives Harden more of an option instead of him having to force shots up because his inconsistent support can't do anything on the offense.

    We honestly should have traded for Jimmy Butler instead of Westbrook last summer. CP3, Harden, Butler, Tucker and Capela is a better team overall. We probably would have won the championship with that team. Oh well. MDA and Morey probably need to go, though. Poor choices.

    an OKC loss would’ve been too embarrassing to take or overcome...our chances of beating the Lakers were always low, although higher than beating the Clippers

    Lakers totally figured us out on both ends. Double harden, crash the boards, let AD bully our midgets and we are done.

    We have no backup plans on offense and defense

    We missed 9 FTs.

    It was a 7pt game with 1min to go.

    Infuriating.

    The Lakers should not have been able to keep up with the Rockets offense. But after game 1 the Lakers adjusted and have managed to take away the 3s and the layups and the Rockets have not adjusted. No adjustments from the Rockets. Just inexcusable!

    I can deal with the Rockets losing but to Rondo? In that manner? Very unsettling

    Well. This one is over. 4-1 or maybe 4-2 if we catch fire next game from the arc. Great time to be a rockets fan. Not much we can do to improve with the payroll situation.

    It turns out he can shoot if left completely unguarded.

    Where the F was RoCo? You know our future first round/Capela? How does he stay on the bench when I thought he was playing well? Especially shooting 3s. He's probably the best 3 point shooter this series. So damn stupid man.
