    Harden has 5 fouls, he's trying to not foul out.

    See how every time Jeff Green cuts good things happen??

    that’s a clue Mike!!

    your offense is SUPER EASY to guard. It’s generally somewhat easy but incredibly easy with with crappy Westbrook.

    Weird to think 2018 was our only chance at a championship. We have not been close since just got worse every year. We should just end the Harden, Morey and and MDA era, it's been fun

    I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. The two guys making $40 million a year aren't either.

    If the Rockets had 95% turnover of players, then I wouldn't mind at all. Got to keep looking for the right players cause most of these guys suck.

    Lebron is going to beat every team of NBA in the playoff seasons. East in the past, now in the West Division.

    Cool, if they continue to shoot well from the 3, peeps can still they are a bad shooting squad that just went hot vs Blazers and Rockets.

    They would go hot against Clippers too but it's going to be closer.

    Rondo practices shooting every day lol just watch their practices.

    While the Rox are a 'good' shooting team but shooting worse in the playoffs.

    The only way that happens is if you move Westbrook, and that can't happen unless you move Harden to make up for the negative contract value, and that can't happen unless Tilman sells the team because he cares about stars, status, and money more than winning (not saying he doesn't care about the latter, but obviously cares about the former more).

    The pain hurts the most the further your expectations are from being met. Games 1 and 2 of OKC really f'd with my head. I thought this team really had a chance to be excellent, not 2015 Warriors or 2018 Rockets excellent, but only a rung below. That was a stupid stupid stupid thought and I'm suffering because I fell for that false hope.

    The reality is that they're collectively much dumber (basketball IQ, not life) and much less skilled and much less disciplined than any of those teams. It's not close and they had no hope of being competitive with any of the remaining playoffs teams.

    I'm as ready to blow it up as you are. Being a middle of the pack team sucks.

    No, im saying their whole defense, schematically has worked because Westbrook sucks at shooting and kills our spacing, we also cannot rely on him to be our second star. Lets stop here, you obviously like the guy, so you cant be objective about it.
