    not saying we win with house, but he has shown he's the only forward besides jeff green that can actually do something when he puts the ball on the floor. he's also a better rebounder than eric gordon.

    oh well.

    Looks to me they doubled Harden and after that it's pretty much a wrap.

    Locking down the Lakers on the defensive end was going to be tough anyhow.

    That's easier with a big center. I miss having one.

    So who will Morey team Harden up with next?

    He pretty much ran Dwight, CP3, Carmelo out and soon he will turn on his buddy too. Maybe in five years we can get a 40 year old Lebron.

    This has been the story of the Harden era Rockets and before that was the who’s turn is it to be out for the season injured Yao-McGrady era.

    Nah, I think where we screwed up was getting rid of Clint and Hartenstein. Man what I would give for a Jokic type center on this team.

    And complains a lot too. AD and Brodie received Ts for their complaining and bickering....but LeBron, the refs ignore. I wish ONCE they would T LeBron to shut him up....just once!

    So, all 3 Houston teams are going to lose today. That's got to be a first. This has to go right up there as one of the worst days in Houston sports history. It's in my top ten.

    I know MDA has a tight lease, but I saw Chandler on the bench in uniform...I'm sure Bruno was available....he HAS to start getting these guys some burn. I doubt we have him but what happened to Hartenstein?

    Scrubs. But yeah, you are right, we only play small guys who get towered at the rim.

    Hmmm, he usually just passes if he isn't wide open. Usually when he tries a layup he misses. He certainly isn't as good at driving inside as Gordon. I do agree with the rebounding though. Gordon isn't much of a rebounder.

    And his defense on LeBron and rebounding has been missed too. He's also fast and compliments Westbrook. I think Westbrooks struggles on the floor the last two games are because House isn't playing along side him. I hope we see House the next game. He should be well rested....lol.

    I have a question...has House been allowed to practice with the team? Or is he banished to his room until "further notice"?

    Rockets got 39-16 free throws, shot 42% from 3, and still lost...because they were outrebounded 52-26. If Morey is still dedicated to small ball, I hope he gets canned with MDA.

    Rockets fans are elite at hypotheticals and excuses. You'd think we would have 3 championships now with the amount of "what if's" you guys have.

    Even small we shouldnt be outrebounded by that much. The effort wasnt there most of the game

    If we lose this series I'm done watching the playoffs. I can't stand the Lakers or the Clippers. The Clippers are a really dirty team. I can't root for either and don't even watch the Eastern Conference to begin with. The only way I might tune back in is if the Lakers or Clippers were about to lose in the finals and then I'd watch the DVR recording only if they lost....haha.
