    Hahaha. That's a real good one especially considering Jalen's play in the past two losses.

    By the way, how amazing was his defensive play when LeBron scored to get to 100. You know the one, the one where Jalen had defensive position in front of LeBron but then literally stepped out of his way giving him an open basket instead of trying to play a lick of defense.

    Those Silas and KPJ characteristics still going strong with Jalen.

    You missed a lot of what was going on in Memphis...he crashed with a camera man and did not help him stand up.......was fined.
    He punched multiple players in the groin area.......

    How is that reputation not something he brought on himself?

    Just because you favor him, does not make him a squeaky clean player.

    Yeah, very likely but I heard Mad Max is different that he does not sucker punch but at least fight people openly 1 on 1.

    Maxwell became an advocate for mental health and helped other people.

    You also missed out the times that I gave credit to his hot performances .....but people only remember those other comments.

    To add, I do not mind that all, it was a fair take like yours. I was not lying when I posted it.

    Posters are not saints, they are humans who have favorite players, I tend to not overly gush about them.

    Tough two-game skid losing to cagey veterans playing 8 on 5 ball.

    It went well! I am married!

    In regard to that game; last year this would have been a blow out. Now, we lost by 1 point due to the heroics of one of the greatest to ever suit up (and same with the Clippers game, really). I can live with that. Especially knowing that Sengun, Jabari, Green, Eason, Thompson and Whitmore haven't yet reached their final form.

    btw we really really need you to adopt Jock Landale as your favorite player so that he'll start playing better. right now the natives are getting restless and I fear for his safety

    These close losses should be concerning for the rest of the league! Rockets are still playing like a young team...I blame the last two losses to turnovers. Points off turnovers are killing the Rockets in these close games...but its early and decreasing turnovers can be fixed.

    Rockets clearly aren't ready to finish off close games on the road, third game we've lost by one possession right at the end. That's a little understandable but frustrating still lol, hopefully they improve throughout the season.

    Jalen looks very uncomfortable, this team needs him to be aggressive and be a scorer. Too passive and not enough FGAs/assertiveness from him tonight.

    Sengun looks great but some really bad TOs. Both he and Jalen get the ball poked out from behind WAYYY too often, it's infuriating lol.

    Dillon had a good game offensively but I hope that his FGAs will not be this high very often. Other guys (Jalen, Jabari) need to step up and shoot/make more 3s.

    Very good defense last night and against the Clippers but obviously Dillon with the dumbest play of the game right at the end smh.

    He's shooting like 28% from the floor over the last 4 games and has a 1:1 asst:turnover ratio...

    He will earn 4Q minutes when he shows something in the first 3.

    Played well enough to win, just didn’t get the result.
