    westbrook blew the game.

    But I think the rust is really showing for westbrook. He has not gotten in any sort of rhythm. Which is exactly why harden should have the ball

    I honestly hope they lose so we can just clean house. This is a sorry ass team with a terrible philosophy, terrible owner and the most overated GM in the league.

    I don't know what to say

    Dan Tony's sticking with Russ over Mclemore and Rivers was really pig-headed. Wasted a decent team defensive effort. Even if we somehow win game 7, that trade will live in infamy.

    all pressure on Rox in game 7.....doesnt look good for Houston. Setting up a game putting pressure on Harden to play big. Media will put all blame on him if Rox lose.

    Props to CP3. Dude was a killer with his team facing an elimination game. Crazy how other teams best players make sure they have the ball at the end of the game.

    Stick a fork in Houston. They are done.

    What kind of coach can't figure out how to get the ball to his best player in the closing minutes of a close game? I'm not surprised. I have no faith in MDA or Westbrook to make high IQ plays late.

    I honestly don't know if I have it in me to watch Game 7. I don't know if I could take this team choking that hard.

    Nah I'll blame him for being lazy & timid on offense in the 4th... few possessions where he just held the ball for 14 secs & threw to a covered team mate & then deferred to RUstbrook & Eric freaking Gordon of all people in the closing minutes

    i don't even want to watch game 7.

    i don't feel good about this at all. all the pressure is one the rockets, and okc can play as loose and with confidence as they want.

    recipe for failure.

    Guys, Westbrook was definitely ass, but we cannot forget James not taking the ball out of his hands. James is the ****ing guy on this team and he didn't demand the ball. You saw Paul, he asked for the ****ing ball. James didn't.

    That's not coaching, that's not Brodie's superhero tendencies, that's James

    It's okay. Westbrook said it was "his bad".

    The entire organization is flawed and we need go home so every one can get fired and traded. Experiment should be over. Time to rebuild.
    - James is great, but CP3 was right, he fades in high leverage moments, we just watched Jamaal and Mitchell - Harden Fades again
    - WB from the get go was not playing winning basket ball, not a 40 million player and not cerebral enough
    - Average 3 point shooters thinking they are warriors
    - A GM that thinks the NBA is played using analytics and AI
    - A coach that runs no plays and makes no adjustments
    - A defender we traded our prized center for, who cannot stay in front of any guard.
    - An owner who would not spend money but get cheap players to save luxury tax

    This experiment is over now.
