    And who are we gonna say the Rockets can't win with? :)

    Dwight? He already got one foot out the door.
    Morey?
    Bickerstaff?
    Harden?

    We only lost by 4 playing Brewer 20 minutes lost us this game. Yes Ariza sucked, Yes Harden's defense wasn't OK. Yes Dwight was bad defensively etc. But Brewer should not even be in the D league anyone with eyes can see and he got 20 minutes. He got more minutes than our second highest scoring player. Coaching matters in close game and JB coached his way out of a win because of personal feelings. I don't care how much you love Brew he's been playing like **** stop playing him.

    The best part about this season is that I cannot possibly imagine a more disappointing and frustrating season. This HAS to be the low point on that scale.

    The pass was bad & Waiters launched his body into Dwight's body...so much contact, but as usual no call...

    Officiating was pretty bias, but if we have Beasley giving us a solid second option for maybe 2 extra minutes in the 4th we possibly win this game.

    ...but JB has a man crush on Brewer, even when he's 1/6.

    Tonight:
    Ariza 5 for 18
    Brewer 1 for 6

    KJ/Beasley/Harrel can't do any worse..Goldilocks?

    I was pleasantly surprised we had a legit chance to win @ OKC.

    But that said it'll be hard to close games with an incompetent coach like Bickerstaff (what is up with all the Corey Sewer and Terry minutes, and once again going back to removing KJ and Harrell from the rotation), and Dwight Howard getting as many minutes as he gets (ONCE AGAIN finishing as the worst starter in terms of +/-)

    Even tho we are going thru tough times we still love our rockets. And basketball is still the best sport (IMO.)

    Dwight's fault. He sux.

    :rolleyes:

    Ariza, Brewer, Beasley a combined 11 for 36.

    Whatever we do, DON'T get Dwight any more touches. K?

    :rolleyes:

    All of the above?

    Maybe even Les included.

    Heck, if the Chargers will be leaving, someone from CA buy this team and move it back there could be a good idea also.

    Any kind of changes is better than nothing.

    Looking at the replay, Harden clearly should have zinged that one in there instead of going for the lob.

    But if Dwight had caught that cleanly, there's no way that Adams or Waiters would have let him get a shot up.

    They would have fouled the crap out of him and we know what Dwight would have done at the line...

    How is this not a loose ball foul on Waters?

    Not a great pass. Sailed a little bit, but still catchable. The game wan't lost on that play. Way too many breakdowns defensively as usual. Howard's double double seemed empty to me. He had a negative plus/minus. I really can't wait for him to move on. He is not the second option we need.

    ok, it definitely looks like this was on Dwight. Pass was a little off and Waiters did good job, but for god's sake 6-10 Dwight should be able to catch that, smh

    I was listening to the game on the radio. We were up 99-97 after a timeout and immediately gave up a backdoor layup to Adams. Let's just say Craig Ackerman lit up Dwight on the radio. Basically said "dude, that's your man!"

    I'm glad it's not just us that recognizes that Dwight has fallen off a cliff defensively, which is why the team has as well.
