    That's alright they played really good. This is an effort they can build on. KPJ took the right shot

    Not gonna lie was kinda hoping we would get Jalen a shot after a timeout. If he hit that 3 to put the dagger into the heart of the lakers that would’ve been amazing

    Silas doesn't put his best shooters on the floor in 2 point game.

    3ball wins it.

    Mindboggling.

    A great competitive loss for Banchero. Unfortunately, the Lakers are the one team I don’t mind the Rockets upsetting.

    Hell of a game. Only thing I'd change is swap out Sengun earlier in the 4th. It was clear he was lacking confidence on the offensive end, and defensively he wasn't holding up. I'd have gone to KMJ/Wood down low earlier, but aside from that just a great game. Couldn't ask for a better last second shot either.

    Silas only tells run run run and no game plan.

    KPJ wouldn’t have been my pick to take the last shot but when we had to pass it into the backcourt (somewhat wildly at that) in order to avoid a 5 sec violation, he got as good a shot as could be hoped.

    This game was so much more enjoyable to watch than any other this season. If our guys could just turn over the ball less and hit a few more free throws, we’d be a lot more competitive.

    That's a good shot KPJ took there. Can't blame him.

    But wow Green damn kid. Already showing the clutch gene.

    Imagine if the Rockets were down by 7 and Green hit 2 Harden-esque 3s to bring them within 2.
