    I think Wizards just ran out of gas after making that comeback.

    I was seriously dying alittle when Dwight missed 3 point blank shots in a row. It was even worse when he kept missing FT.

    Lin was +28, by far the best on the team. Harden was +4. Brooks was -8, the worst on the team. When Brooks was in there, Wall went right at him.

    All I said was lin was gettind woked by Wall, if that's that's hating so be it. Howard was commiting turnvers ad I called him but as I did with Harden who was the match winner. Even clutch has called over sensitive lin fans out.

    Yep we need to get someone that we can play now of the bench. Solidifying our bench.

    IF only TJones played consistent every game the Rockets would have also won last night. Nice game by TJones tonight. Good to see the team comeback from giving up such a big lead in the fourth to take this B2B in end.

    Howard needs to toughen up a bit, he could crack under pressure. We need his post games to be reliable during crunch time in playoffs

    Blaming McHale for his timeout uses is kinda silly. He can't call a timeout everytime the Rockets were playing sucky, he'd run out of timeouts. Example being that he actually did call two timeouts during the terrible run between late 3rd quarter and 4th quarter, but the Rockets STILL continued to play terrible on both ends. He can't call ANOTHER timeout, he has to save some for the late game situation.

    In those types of moments, I feel we needed a coach like McHale. It's clear that the run had gotten into the Rockets heads, and McHale needed to pump the team up. Set aside the playbook and encourage the guys, tell them to calm down and execute the plays.

    Kudos to McHale for A. Not taking Lin out even though he was being raped by Wall in the 4th quarter, B. Clapping, encouraging the team to pull out the game, C. Recognizing the need to take out the bench as soon as possible despite the foul troubles of some starters

    he needs to go back to strong one motion moves like in the first half. once he hesitates teams rotate on help defense and he usually gets the ball stripped.

    The first quarter was kinda sucky for him. 3 turnovers in the first quarter but he played well down the stretch.

    That and the extra 8 TOs, this really should have been a blow out game. Howard with only 7 total rebounds is really kind of unacceptable.
