    21 points on 16 shots.
    9 assists and 0 turnovers.
    Elite defense.

    Massively underrated "bad game"...

    This team finally has trust.

    All-around trust. You can't buy that with money, you just can't.

    Our D is truly impressive. It's championship level good. Even when the Rockets were down, I never felt like they were on the verge of losing control. It really seems like they know they can shut down the other team for a good 5 or 6 minutes straight and just run up the score to double digits when they need to.

    Not one player had a double double in this game, from either team.

    Serious defense all around.
    Rockets have been winning with defense the entire time in the bubble.

    Crazy that we ditched a center to give WB room to generate more offense and as a side reaction became much better on defense. Another stroke of genius by the best GM in the game.

    Rockets are legit my fellow Rockets fans, we have legit good defense, legit versatility in scorers, Harden clutch despite poor shooting most of the game, love it, I feel good about this team, let's pray for no more injuries.

    And notice fchowd conveniently disappears after Rockets take the lead.

    Nowhere to be found when we are taking victory laps.

    LOL

    I love when Tough as Nails Tucker brings it!!

    What a crock when he's knocked down, no foul, then while on the ground CP3 crawls all over top of him and Tucker gets the foul. That was as bad as the jump ball call with ghost hands.
