    No, I think you are right there is no reason to talk about OKC, just enjoy the win....

    if this team is better than expected, people will complain that they should be tanking.

    If this team plays badly, people will complain that the team is no good.

    if this team plays, people will complain.

    Mobley back to a ho-hum game (13 points 5rb -7)
    Suggs 4-17 fga but Scottie balled out with 25 and 13.

    I think we need to let Jalen ease in and find his comfort zone.
    When he's ready he'll get more shots!

    Durant was not a good shooter in his rookie season.
    But after those crazy amounts of shots, he became so good at shooting in 2 seasons.

    Many times when Green was wide open, nobody pass the ball to him.

    An impressive win. Wood, Gordon stepped up to the plate. KPJ played better too. Winning against weaker teams won't hurt us. I hope to see more touches for Sengun around the basket. Jalen will gain confidence in time.
    Go Rockets!

    wtf i'm talking about enjoying watching the Rockets play, win or lose.

    complaining about the knee-jerk histrionics on this forum is well justified at this point. it's been going on for years and now it is just over the top.

    Honestly to me it's not the players I get down on. It's the coaching and development. I can honestly say I was very early in my assessment of Silas. I just think there needed to be a better process after seeing that first game and preseason games before that.

    Ill say it one last time for the casuals.....

    Playing the vets to win games is idiotic

    I'm not saying winning games is bad I'm saying play the young guys not the Vets win or lose if they win great it's good for morale if they lose great is good for a draft pick but playing veterans over the young guys just to beat up on OKC is r****ded just r****ded I don't spect you guys to understand that

    Some fans get it some fans don't

    I'm not saying lose on purpose I'm not saying tank

    So all y'all need to quit putting words in my mouth

    I'm saying developed the young guys build her confidence let them play win or lose

    Playing Augustine house and nwaba is just r****ded just r****ded worst coach ever and any fans that agree with what Silas is doing have no idea how to rebuild a team

    I've been on this form long enough and I live in Houston long enough to see a pattern I can predict how you're going to act game the game


    I already knew OKC is the worst team in the league after seeing the first game of the season and I I knew we what beat them today and all day I said I'm going to get on clutch fans and everybody's going to be dancing in the streets like we won the championship

    Yeah let's enjoy this win.. kind sad when a fanbase is this desperate that they get excited over beating the worst team in the league OKC


    Once again for the casuals playing veterans is stupid just makes no sense.... It doesn't build up morale. It actually does the opposite.. destroys morale because if you're Brooks Matthews or Martin or Josh your morale is completely destroyed because you don't get to play enough when your team is up by 30 points

    Let's go for that 8th seed. Forget development and forget the draft. It's not like we have to give our picks to OKC pretty soon for YEARS and this year is our last chance for a top talent in the draft.......oh wait

    See? You guys will really regret not tanking in a couple years when our picks go to OKC.. oh I forgot according to most people we will not need our picks in 2023 cuz we will he contenders. Geez. Excuse me for wanting kmartin to play instead of nwaba and house....some people..

    No you weren't too early in your assessment of Silas what's going on here right now is what I predicted we beat the worst team in the league OKC and now everyone thinks we are on the right path and Silas is coach of the year
