    Starters played an average game, Jabari and Jalen were not good in this one. But the only reason we lost was Amen. He could not do anything right because he was that nervous. At the garbage time he was able to get to the game a little bit, but it was too late. Sengun seems to be even better than last year and plus defender. Few more games and we will be a winning team.

    Ok, so Brooks shut down BOTH Franz and Paolo then? This is why I'm not getting it, it sounds like you're just attributing every make from either player as Jabari's fault. Not how I saw the game. Paolo was not a factor offensively at all, that he got an and 1, good for him. I mean he made the same amount of shots as Jabari who also was not a factor offensively in this game. Franz started hot but cooled down but this was more

    You also can't then say they were trying to hide Bari while also admitting that he was either guarding Franz OR Paolo. You don't hide a player by assigning him to a teams 2nd best offensive player and their first offensive player and like I keep mentioning that keeps getting ignored. The starters played well defensively the 2nd half. That includes Jabari. That's how they got the game down to 1.

    I don't know who Frank is quite frankly. Looks like a fan that just makes videos on youtube. I don't feel like listening to a 23 minute video of another fan's perspective, nothing against Frank.

    Thing is, if Bari is always guarding the first or second option for a team on any given night that means the coaches trust him to do so and that means more nights than others he's going to look bad because he's going against better scorers. I wish Paolo went off actually, if only he went off and every magic guard didn't score at will maybe we'd have a better result.

    I'd like to say things can only go up from here, but even that's not true.

    After watching that game last night, I considered changing my avatar to the Rockets logo and changing my signature to "Rockets Only Fan".

    You have absolutely nailed it here IMO. We are have a DYING need for a big man. I can't stress enough what Lopez falling through did to us. I agree Bari or Sengun either one are the answer.

    I love both but they are not going to effectively guard good bigs...neither is big enough. And I was shocked to not see Cam until deep in the ball game. A head scratcher. Yes, I pull for Jabari because he went Auburn. I also pull for Walker Kessler and other former AU players. Speaking of Kessler, put a package together and bring him here. Our shooting might solve itself...the lack of the big we need is not going away. It will singlehandedly keep us from getting where we need to go IMO.

    You should've said "GARM double drivel". I would've laughed.

    This. I don't get why people always brag Jabari's defense. It's not that good.

    Jabari is not who Collins was cooking.

    I know who your imagination thinks he cooked, and just like the rest of your opinions it’s wrong:

    Normally I would suggest watching the actual game instead of highlights for proper context but here even you clip proves my point.
    Collins had 4 points with Jabari as his primary defender.

    So, yeah...

    So even counting is too hard for you. I had guessed that most of these Sengun haters had learning disabilities and wouldn’t you know it…

    This absolutely is the most unbiased view of the game I've read. I've not said Jabari has played well...he did NOT. But, he wasn't "cooked" by anyone but maybe Wagner and he had company as Wagner put it on everyone. Throw in Anthony going into the lane AT WILL. My whole point is Jabari didn't lose this ballgame for us.....no single player did.

    Defense,TO and poor shooting overall did. I was a Rockets fan waaay before I was a Jabari fan. If he can't get it done, he'll be playing for someone else. I'll still be Rockets #1 and would follow him where he goes. But, I don't believe that will happen. Truth be told...there is the misconception that we got a bum deal. We'll see. But, believe this....our biggest problem is not having a BIG...period. Take some of the young talent we have and go get one..Kessler ? He is making 2.7 mil a year. He brings a LOT defensively.
