    Rockets are on a 6 game losing streak going back to the regular season. 4 of those 6 games have been close games determined in the last minute or so..where we've been killed by terrible, terrible turnovers. All have been HUGE, must-win type games. I love Harden but he has to take step up as an alpha dog and stop killing the team with costly turnovers or bad shots trying to draw fouls. I get he may be burnt out but some of these turnovers are just head stratchers that are a result of lazy, bad decison-making. I don't want to to hear about "well he's young!", that is an excuse so please don't mention it for the millionth time. I don't expect us to win but I'm going to be peeved if we don't win 1 game in this series.

    Let's take the next 4 games. That's the mentality I want the Rockets to have. Don't let anybody tell you what you can't do.

    It's been a good run Rockets. Enjoy your summer. Will look forward to your progress next season.

    Either we get swept or not, this has been a good learning experience. 3-1 let's go!

    I'm tired as **** of okc beating us by 2 or 3 points, it's about time we get a W for once. The bench has to come through for us, especially since we're at home

    I think this is an important game for the franchise. It is likely the last game of the season before the home crowd, a win will prevent a sweep, a symbolic cherry on top of a surprisingly good season. It's a pride thing. They need to show what they are made of.

    Start solid, don't go all out and preserve those energies. OKC will be full of emotions from the crowd (being 1st game at home after losing Westbrook) and go hard at it from the beginning.

    Defend well in first hard and play the last 2 quarters like we did in game 2 and 3 and just execute play by play.

    Why can't our crowd be like the Warriors' fans at the Oracle Arena? We're just as diverse a city as them.

    We will only win if
    - fans show up
    - Lin is not playing
    - we start a PF
    - Garcia gets playing time
    - Harden shoots high percentage
    - we cut down on threes
    - we show some toughness

    Can you say: "not gonna happen"?

    1. We need the refs to call the game like they did in the 2nd half of game 3 but absolutely not like they called it in the 1st half of that same game.

    2. Please, no F'n Joey Crawford!!!!!!!!!!!!

    3. Players need to find their 3pt range.

    Just get 1 win! Go Rockets!

    Start Jones

    Coach needs to tell Bev control his fouling as he needs to play extend starter minutes.
