    Don't know our own pick but Bucks pick should be used for A.Bona of UCLA (6'10", 7'4" wingspan) if he becomes still available.

    the sequence where 3 straight airballs got thrown up was hilarious

    some real wtf moments too…Garuba stole the ball and then just tossed it at the backboard? It happened so fast I couldn’t tell what exactly happened

    KPJ was making me very uneasy in the 4th and OT, but he scored well overall at least

    Jabari continues to look more and more comfortable

    Tari’s hustle is legitimately game changing in the way PJ’s was, but Tari has actual skill to go along with his hustle

    Tari and KJ is a nice wing rotation…wish we had handed Tate’s contract to KJ, he would’ve taken it

    Those last two minutes of regulation til the end of the game was about as good a defense as I've seen this iteration of the Rockets play over an extended stretch.

    Yes, the Sixers made some dumb mistakes, and our guys made some dumb mistakes too (letting Melton have that WIIIDE open 3 is one I can think of off the top of my head) but we slowed Embiid down without getting Alpi fouled out and completely turned Harden into a non-factor.

    And this might be my bias speaking, but I still think we get some unbalanced calls on defense. Must be a young team thing.

    We are quickly turning into a team that NOBODY wants to play, because it seems that on any given night the Rockets can pull off an upset.

    It was certain from the beginning: We might not pass a decent team in a 7 games series but we can beat any team in a given night.Talent is there.

    DD busting Narratives all night long.

    9 passes to Sengun from KPJ - and only 1 turnover, I have also figured out what they are both doing wrong on the PNR and can be fixed easily...but I want to chalk board that.

    Also, well, amazing that no one cares as much for turnovers when you are hitting shots....and winning.

    People forget that Harden was a 1.5 to 1 Assist to Turnover guy when he moved to main facilitator but when you are scoring 30+ every night no one cares....

    Still too many turnovers, but we forced the same of them so it washed out.....great D - great effort....5-5 in last 10 with 3 wins over playoff teams and 3-0 in the last 3 at home with many more home games coming.

    HOW SWEET IT IS !!!!
