    You D him up, he drives past you. You leave him space, he hits jumpers in your face. What do you propose we do?

    bring out this lineup to start the 2nd half

    Harden
    Bev
    Ego
    Ariza
    Capela

    Tell Harden to push the pace and stop walking the ball up the court every possession. By the time we even start to run something the shot clock is already at 16. Capela should get a quick hook if he continues to be soft in the paint and not contest shots at the rim.

    Maybe in OKC, not in Houston. Our bigs/forwards definitely won those battles.

    If I'm open and getting a good shot I will hit at a higher clip. I don't get why people don't understand this....they will continue to hit open shots they are NBA players. THe rockets enable this more than any team its a damn trend.

    no kidding. we've got about 10 years of evidence that if you limit westbrook to out of the paint shots, he's a fairly horrible shooter. but somehow he's figured it all out right in april 2017. i mean he bumped off gordon hard before that last jumper, that can't do much for your balance. but swish. right when we get in these games, okc gets hot automatically. must be all that clutchess they showed last year against gsw that is carrying them. ****.

    I really hate this whole 'no mid-range' philosophy. Sometimes that mid-range shot is the most efficient shot available. Just completely abandoning it is beyond stupid.

    Can't believe we are allowing a one man team like the thunder push us. This team is overrated.

    Just hack a Robinson. His defense is killing us but he's damn near the worst free throw shooter I've ever seen.

    Refs missing a LOT of BS on our end, we should have at least 10 more FTs, but nope saving all the whistles for Westbrook and touch fouls.

    why not guard westbrook a little closer? his mid range is killing us since game 1. yes, he can drive by but at least there will be someone to contest him. rather than uncontested jumper. i think beverley defend him closer, but not gordon.

    Rockets need to get hot. Take command early and bleed them out from the jugular.

    Harden needs to start running around a bit. Robertson is beating Harden to the spot on everything.
