    Magic are doing a good job of closing out.

    Gotta love it that it's now 4 games in a row where they come out playing like they can just win these games by showing up.

    Rockets continue to not bother to care to start the game. Continue to embarrass themselves.

    Oh well.

    Lazzzzzzzzzzy...

    What is the deal with our locker room? Is there beef or something? This laziness is unnatural.

    What the hell is going with these terrible starts?

    We're passing up wide open shots and they're making their shots. Our supporting cast are too scared to shoot open shots.....yet Harden can't buy a wide open shot they're getting. Harden has to take contested 3pt shots.

    Shoot the ball when you’re open.

    instead of driving and turning the ball over or getting a worse contested attempt.

    I don't understand this team. One minute we're capable of beating the best teams. The next minute, we're struggling against the shittiest teams. What is wrong with Harden?!?

    They haven't closed out on half our shots.... we're just passing them up. They're playing scared.
