    NBATV acting like the Rockets aren't without 4 rotation players.

    Tucker and House aren’t good enough to be starters at this point. We’ve got to get some help in the frontcourt.

    Why didn't Harden or Tucker foul at the end? Why just let the clock run off? There was 3 seconds left.

    As good as Harden is it often feels like he makes the most untimely TOs at the most crucial part of the game

    I don't think it's the players. The undrafted players are great one on one players. The whole team doesn't know how to rotate on picks. Too many backdoor cuts, two guys running at one shooter, getting stuck on screens when you should just switch etc. Lot to work on in practice

    Harden, erase the Blazers from your list effective immediately

    ESPN says Lillard is better than Harden, but the difference between the 2 was so clear. It’s astronomical. Harden is at least 2 tiers above Lillard.

    It sucks losing, but considering that there are still 71 games to this season, there is a ton of positives that can be taken from this game. There was some miscommunication on the defensive end that needs to be cleaned up but we are missing half of our rotation so it's understandable.

    Lol McCollum calling out House for turning his back on that last shot. House is some special kind of bad in the Clutch. He has the IQ of a doorknob.

    Disappointing that they loss they way they did but not to bummed considering the circumstances. Tucker and House didn't play well enough with a depleted roster tonight. Would have liked to have seen Bruno get some more time with those two struggling.

    This why losing Covington Hurt. We still have a massive hole at the 3 spot, and we need a backup PG

    Again, when Harden went to the bench at the beginning of the 2nd quarter, the Rockets were able to turn a 4 point lead into a 12 point lead. Can you explain that?

    Given Curry's resume, you've lost that argument.

    Exactly.

    Rockets not winning turnover battle anymore even against weak sisters like Blazers.

    Need another long iso defender that can lockdown 1-5 as small ball 5.

    Trade for Aaron Gordon.
