    Unfortunate. Can't see them playing the playoffs.
    My guess is Paul George gets the spot even though CP3 deserves it more.

    Luc Mbah a Moute. a game-high +17 in just 24 minutes. Unworthy of closing out the last few minutes that cost the team the game when it was tied.

    Being down 20 the Rockets made a game of it. Perhaps down the stretch in the last two minutes with Harden having a poor shooting night, CP3 should have been running the offense more since he was shooting well, that would MDA to make that call. The Pelicans because of their shot blocking and wings guarding the 3 ball does counter the Rockets layups and 3s. Perhaps if the Rockets had got Capela going more offensively in the pick and roll , or penetrated and passed out or more drop step jump shots who knows. The problem was really the defensive end and not the offensive end. This might have been a game MDA could have used Green, only 3 Rockets scored in double digits. All in all it was the poor play in second quarter that got the Rockets chasing from way behind. Lots of stuff for MDA to look over and team to learn from in closing out close games. It has been a while since the entire rotation is healthy, lets hope it stays that way and we stay focused or make quick adjustments for four quarters.

    Damn, torn left Achilles tendon. I really hope Cousins not done for the season, the Pelicans have a foundation to build on with him, Davis and Holiday. :)

    are you paying to see the players play or are you paying to see the Rockets play, because the team will outlast the players

    He is addressing you calling the players "overpaid". Not sure what you are talking about with that. Honestly your response is borderline r****ded so maybe this convo should just dissolve.

    So we should pay the players less and let the owners make more money? I think it goes without saying that players aren't all equals. If your team has Lebron on it then your franchise isngoing to make more money that season

    So in a game where we get 0 from PJ and Ryno, 5 from Mbah, you cannot tell me Green couldn’t get a few minutes to see if he gets it going.

    Glad we lost. Stubbornness from a coach and Morey’s ways causing Ryno to stop being part of the team yet still give him all those minutes is not good. Just change the starting lineup already, he might be serviceable of the bench!!
