    The Spurs need to stop being p*****s and need to try to win out like the Warriors are gonna have to try to do.

    **YAWN**

    If we can't beat a depleted Mavs team in a 'must win' game
    are we really expected to beat an upper tier playoff team?

    At this point we're just limping along hoping for other teams' losses
    to get us mathematically included into a bottom feeder playoff spot.

    What's the point? We have no fight, no Hutzpah

    Its more of hope and wishful thinking that these team get's on some sort of roll once in the playoffs. :(

    **** this team, the middle school PE coach that's way over his head, and everyone involved in this travesty of a season.

    Zero margin for errors. Plus pray for the other 3 teams to lose.

    According to the trend, the Rockets will win after a loss. So no worry.

    If Brewer or Terry Checks into the game at any point I'm turning that **** off indefinitely. Just rest Harden and lose the game. I don't want to see Corey Brewer play in the playoffs. Also I don't want JB(worst coach ever) to have a playoff appearance on his resume. He doesn't deserve another job as a coach anywhere.

    Brewer has to be the most disappointing player in the league this year. Does he get a Razzie or something? Brewer has had such a bad season that it wouldn't shock me if he came back next season a rejuvenated player. If he is truly honest with himself, then he will hit the gym hard this off-season and work on his game and shot. Then, come back with a new special purpose. The problem may be he might have to do it with another team. It's doubtful we should even take the gamble he has been so bad offensively. He's basically just been helping the other teams beat us all season long.

    As for what to do with coach, I expect Morey and Alexander will have him back because they have their blinders on I bet...just like JVG. They may want to give him a full off-season and pre-season before they fire him if the team starts off slowly again.

    As for this game, whatever.

    The craziest thing about Brewer is that he seemed like the most ready player in the preseason.

    I see us winning the next three of four and both the Mav and Jazz going 2-2.

    Who owns the tiebreaker if all three teams finishes 41-41?

    So for the Rockets to make the playoffs, they need 4 wins, combined with either 2 Mavericks losses, 1 Jazz loss, or the Grizzlies dropping all their remaining games. Clippers probably rest the starters tomorrow against Utah, with the Jazz most likely picking up a win.

    I'm hoping the Grizzlies win vs. the Mavericks on Friday. That would guarantee the playoffs for the Rockets if they win their next 4. Under that scenario, going into the Mavericks vs. Jazz game, Dallas would either pick up their second loss, or the jazz would lose, to even up with the Rockets in the loss column. Rockets would win the tie breaker against both team, with either more division wins, or conference wins. That of course requires the Rockets to take care of business with a soft closing schedule, who knows if they are actually capable of not screwing this all up again. This is after all the same team that lost to the lowly Nets twice and Denver all 3 games they played.

    Thank you Clippers. Also, please rest against Dallas, the Rockets need to think about the offseason instead, especially Dwight.

    I believe so. Even if they're not mathematically eliminated, it'll practically be over.

    Good analysis. We should chear on the Grizzlies tomorrow. It look like the Rockets have all the tie breakers won. They need just to start winning games.
