    Hoping for a dead cat bounce, but I'm not holding my breath.

    MDA and Dork Elvis should be shown the door immediately if we lose.

    How can the #Rockets free James Harden in Game 5?

    D’Antoni: “Obviously we got to speed up. ...There are times he’s got to be a bit more selfish.”

    Any Danuel House update from Mike D’Antoni?

    “No, not that I know of.”

    Mike D’Antoni confident in his team’s effort entering Game 5:

    “We’re going to put our foot on the gas pedal. We’re going to go as hard as we can go.”

    i think this is the last win of the season, but I do think the series goes six.

    This is the game MDA says **** it and ditches Morey's philosophy (3's, layups and free throws) We still lose 110-98 and we have to see Trade Harden threads for 3 months.

    Kenny: "So, what's your prediction, Chuck?"
    Chuck: "Hey Ernie, did you know the Rockets haven't lost 4 playoff games in a row, since Kenny's last year there?"
    Shaq: "Gaarrry Paayton!"
    Chuck: "Gary was mean to Kenny, Ernie."
    Ernie: "Oh, right. And that was why they traded for you, Chuck."
    Kenny: "And how that go for them."
    Chuck: "That's my line, Kenny."

    Just a reminder that it can be done (and once was done by a Harden team). Teams down 3-1 have come back to win the series 12 times...two of those by the Houston Rockets. Just need to focus and win Game 5.

    So the answer is we've got to speed things up? LOL

    Yea...I'll be doing that on my DVR with the fast forward button I'm pretty sure.

    Rockets season gonna end one day before Dolphins begins. Almost poetic. I usually enjoy the time off from sports after the Rockets season ends and before the Dolphins begin to disappoint me. No break this year though!

    Rockets winning a meaningless game in a lost series.

    Name a more iconic duo.

    just get it over with

    the rebuild needed to start 2 years ago, Morey's obsession with jacking up only 3s and layups is like a broken relationship you keep dragging out even though you know it's over.
