    Rudy T said it best.

    "Don't EVER underestimate the heart of a champion".

    This team has no heart.

    Bayless is a bum and I hate him. BUT he is a good shooter the second best of the team and him being left unguarded is criminal.
    He has a carreer year shooting
    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="el"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Bayless at 54-113 on spot-ups, 47.8% but 69.0 eFG%. 1.40 PPP</p>&mdash; Willie Armstrong (@CanadaBucks) <a href="https://twitter.com/CanadaBucks/status/704656440624082944">1 Μαρτίου 2016</a></blockquote>
    <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

    If he is just a spot up shooter he is perfect. Just not let him run the offence.

    Relax guys

    It's only 60 or so games. Lots of time left for the Rockets to get it together

    We will be ready by playoff time.

    So I didn't watch the game last night, because.. For what?

    But, how the hell did these clowns manage to lose a game to the Bucks when DH, Harden, and Ariza put up those types of stat lines?

    It's virtually impossible to let a team shoot 59% from the floor. Bravo, Rockets, bravo.

    JBBs horrible coaching and rotations. Still playing Josh Smith, Jones and Brewer way too much.

    It doesn't matter that JB's a horrible coach in virtually every facet of the game.

    This season is a product of James Harden's defense and turnovers. Nothing else.

    I was thinking this as well. It's pretty rare to see the Rockets lose a non-Warriors game when they all play like that.

    But the bench...oh man the bench...

    KJ -DNP
    Harrell - DNP

    2 guys that could help on D. 2 guys who are not named - Josh Smith, Corey Brewer ,Terrence Jones, Ty Lawson, or even D-Mo who is just getting back.

    Gave up 128 points! on 60% shooting! & 53% 3 point shooting! To the freaking Bucks! The Bucks! The Pistons beat the Bucks. The Knicks can beat the Bucks.

    You really think Jabari would have dropped 36 pts if Harrell had some minutes guarding him?

    You really think the Bucks would have had open 3 point shooting practice and open jump shot shooting practice with KJ out there on the wing for some minutes?

    We're forced to stick with Morey I guess, because he is (and I begrudgingly say this) our best shot at landing free agents and rebuilding something of decent value this offseason. But that isn't saying much. The "In Morey We Trust" slogan sure is fading fast on the walls of this franchise.

    We're forced to stick with JB, I suppose, until the end of the season. But really why? Put anyone in his place. Hell give the clipboard to T.R. Dunn for the rest of this season.

    Same reason this team is sub .500, worst bench in the league and atrocious defense top to bottom.

    Nope. Wrong again. A solid coach would find a way to cover up his star's faults.

    I was so looking for glimmers of hope last night. Seemed like DMo was getting a little bit better out there, I thought; but then he bricked that baby hook instead of dunking... Screw this season. Let's tank.

    do they even call each other out while watching film?
    does coach even call anyone out on film?
