    I'm wrong. If Portland wins out we are #4. Honestly that might be for the best. I want to face Golden State early.....increase the likelihood that Paul will be upright.

    Yeh but securing homecourt in the first 2 rounds would have been really good.

    Nuggets aint losing to the Wolves, especially when Wolves have nothing to play for.

    And Blazers play Lakers today (they not losing a Lebron-less Lakers) and Kings who may try to finish the season on a good note but unlikely since they're also looking forward to the off-season.

    Both teams win out and Rockets drop to 4th.

    He missed 1 free throw out of 12. He was bound to miss one. If you're seriously going to say he choked the game..... when we was up by 2 with 9 seconds to go, then you clearly have no clue what you're talking about.

    We should have played some actual defense and made our wide open shots.

    Why do the basketball gods hate us so much? OKC was done and the Rockets are incapable of stepping on the neck..

    I refuse to let the Rockets steal my joy I had a great day before this and now I feel like my dog just died. Im not going to bother watching the playoffs this team just doesnt want it enough. Theyve been given every opportunity and they just say no right when they get to the door every time. Only good when it doesnt count. Harden only plays his best when it doesnt count, haters keep saying it I refuse to beleive but they are right I see it now. I kinda knew this and I still keep watching. From now on Im a casual Rockets fan, being too invested in this team will give me a heart attack.

    Also, Giannas just locked down the MVP - the national media will be all over MVP's don't miss FTs like that.

    Extremely disappointing. Not a good omen at all.

    Harden & Gordon disappear in 4th quarter. Pacing was erratic towards the end, we played like we were panicking. OKC is the Seattle to our 90’s Rockets, just a bad matchup. Do not want them in the playoffs.

    We couldn't close it out when it mattered most. Really disappointed having this one slip. This really sucked.

    He was not good tonight for sure, neither was Gordon, the entire team just fell apart once OKC upped the pressure, we are a front running team - we crack under pressure.

    Another completely blown game thanks to the coaching staff, and I'm sure with MDA it would've been the same thing.

    Gerald Green KILLS IT from long range (5-9) and yet he only gets 15 minutes while Eric Gordon gets 30 minutes and shoots 2-9 from three.

    Just zero in-game awareness by one of the worst in-game coaching staffs in the league.
