    Yeah, but we were at least within a shout. Now its a blowout. I'm just saying, the offense is trash with him off the court. Clearly there are bigger issues here than Westbrook.

    I am as well...other teams have no problems scoring in the playoffs playing regular ball

    we go heavy analytics and extreme Moreyball, and every year, our offense in the playoffs is buns

    u need midrange...u need a post up option...u need PnR...u need some plays run...u need versatility

    teams figure out how they want to defend us, and then it’s a wrap because we will continue doing the same thing...the definition of insanity

    I'm on board with a new system. Let me be clear, it has nothing to do with me thinking that small ball -can't- work, but if you're going to put players out there that can't shoot threes...then there's no point in just shooting 3's. If you're going to have this kind of roster, then you have to have a big man, you have to let Harden shoot mid ranges, along with WB, etc.

    Harden going to foul out early in the 4th so he doesn't have to deal with this trash. Head out of the mother****er bubble. And hit up the titty bar. Book it!

    They play better overall bball.

    The movement from ball handler to Davis one touch pass to Caruso for 3.

    The Rockets can't beat the Warriors with a similar style, and then the next year, they can't beat the Lakers with their own style. Morey is a career loser. lol

    Eh...maybe. Still feels like year after year we are consistently dominated by other teams benches.

    Not crafting a gameplan on the ridiculous assumption that they can shoot.

    They can pick up their checks and go home. Tucker and certain players do deserve respect but the so called superstar leaders don't.

    "We don't adjust, we make other teams adjust to us"

    Well, when the other team does adjust to us, how do we respond?

    There is a certain level of arrogance and confidence in the front office's approach that has to change. The whole organizational culture feels like it rides on some sort of advantage that the Rockets seem to have, whether it's shooting a lot of 3s or playing small. And when that perceived advantage/invincibility shows even the slightest crack, the whole things start to fall apart.

    I hate to say we gave up, Been watching the crew since 86. But I have not seen the rockets since game two in this series. We are literally.......barely......here anymore than Danuel is.

    Never underestimate the heart of a champion......but I do not see Rudy T and Dream in that locker room.

    No doubt man. Every team left has shown some fight and we look like we’ve packed it in. Why even show up today to get embarrassed like this in a CLOSE OUT game.

    He's been ****ing around forever. I know injuries are sometime luck of the draw, but we need a complete overhaul.
