    This game showed why chris Paul is important. James harden completely is lost in clutch time moments. Couldn’t hit the rim, also predictability is important. Chris Paul Diversifiies the offense, which helps. We might have dodged a bullet with boogie injurie if we do play Pelicans in first round

    need better decisions at the end of the game. cp3 was a beast in the 4th quarter yet, for some reason not letting him dictate the offense in the closing minutes. you ride the hot hand and trust him.

    oh well these are the lessons you learn in the regular season to correct later

    That was simultaneously a great game and a terrible game.

    We came back from 20 only to lose. The anxiety level was through the roof for Rockets fans.

    The Pelicans squandered a 20 point lead, barely won, AND lost Cousins to what appears to be a serious ankle injury. Their fans anxiety has to be equally as high and they have to be equally distressed that they may lose Cousins.

    Now, I need a shot.

    why's everyone is taking for granted that Cousins is done for the season?
    AD couple weeks ago looked half dead and he got back after 2 games.

    Tucker was better than Ryan Anderson. Tucker defended well. Rockets really have to consider that Anderson has checked out and there is a huge hole at the 4. Good luck Daryl.

    Absolutely NAILED it here ! I felt pretty sure we'd come back on them but you just CAN'T turn it on and off when you want to. We played about as badly as we can play and they played about as good as they can play and it still came down to the very end.

    This loss is on James. 1-9 from 3 is inexcusable. Plus not attacking the rim at all.

    When are we gonna get explosive pre-portland Harden back?
