    after tonight’s win. 5 games behind #1, and 1.5 games behind #4. Most importantly, the team finally starts to look like last year’s team, piling up boring wins and such.

    WE ARE BACK!

    calm down.... this season has a long way to go. we need to see a lot more consistency over a bigger sample size to claim we are back.

    We look nothin like last years squad. We’re not rebounding or defending like last years squad.

    I hate to say it but y’all need to let go memories of last years squad. We can still make it back to the wcf with this squad but not the same way.

    No matter how bad things got, we always had a shot at the playoffs in the Harden era.

    Directly after the win, the Rockets were in the 8th place. Some other team lost and we moved up one after our win. Maybe by tomorrow we could be in a higher standing....the teams are that close.

    Worriers down 11 in 4th.

    That would put us 3 games back in loss column.

    The top teams last year look like nothing like last year's squads either. GSW, Raptors, Utah, Spurs, Celtics all these teams also also look like they took a step back so relax. We lost more than those guys but we are also on the way back earlier than those guys.

    I like the body language we have now guys are joking and playing with swag again. That is more important indicator than any win or loss.
