    John Wall saying how he’s the healthiest he’s ever been and yet he’s been missing game after game. This team is too injury prone and unreliable. Then you have Clemons taking up a roster spot when he should have been thrown in the trade is even more frustrating because we could really use Gerald Green.

    Always do. That's the problem. When will the FO prioritize it? There are centers like Dedmon out there that can be picked up. Fertitta just wants to save money at this point.

    Good effort. Easy to root for these guys. Those TOs and missed FTs partly due to fatigue. Surely could've used GG tonight!

    this is what some good shooters do... they are picky about the shots and listening to the internal rhythm

    If you have diarrhea the Rockets organization will sit you out..

    I’m convinced they are in tank mode..
    Trade Wall, Gordon, etc... Trade them all...

    I can’t stand to watch high paid dudes not earn their coins...

    You have all these younger players giving all they got getting paid chump change by NBA standards..while Mr Gordon and Wall get to relax and chill...

    And I don’t want to hear about previous injuries needing rest either..

    All of them said that they were close to 100%.. No excuses

    Dang. If Tucker would have just hit 1 more three we would have won by 20 points

    lol Still mad somebody criticized Harden? You realize Rockets broke their own protocol to let James play through injuries because he had that much say. Rockets are back to protecting their product if it means overall health benefits vs short term gain (i.e. to impress a bunch of Harden only fans).

    He’s getting better at it but if the lane gets crowded he’s in trouble

    We started the game well, our D was excellent at times but we had too many sloppy turnovers and being on a 8-man rotation didn't help either. Oh forgot to mention the freethrows.. that also added to the loss.

    Jones had a solid game!

    Lots of positives from these 2 games we can see Rox are def playoff bound seeing as how it took horrible shooting nights and garbage effort from the T brothers to put the Rockets away. Tate, Nwaba, Jones and Kurucs, yeah we def have some depth at the wing spot but we really need big men. Like traditional defensive big men. TBH I can't help but think of Miami maybe we can get Olynk and Iggy for Tucker and Dipo or something. Regardless I've had enough of midget ball no need to see that trash on the court.

    I know some posters think this team is directionless or heading nowhere or whatever, let's be real they are missing EG, House Cousins, Wall and Dipo. Take out 5 rotation guys from any team would they look even remotely this good? LOL. I don't even know why Dipo didn't play, if he suited up we would have swept the Spurs for the season.

    Once we get everyone back and jelled together this team is gonna surprise a lot this season and prob put Silas in the running for COTY.

    Wall and Gordon are not even gonna be here long term. Get out there and raise that trade value.

    It's best when Wood penetrates and watches the dribble
