    Houston Rockets are the best team ever and Chris Paul sucks.

    Got it!

    What a dumbass stat to list. Yeah, let's make conclusions off of CP3 playing 33 minutes with a bum knee against the Warriors.

    We have to put them at #1, but we HAVE to say something bad about them also to keep the agenda in order.

    Really bizarre write-up for the #1 ranked team.

    yeah, really. The stat should be, if anything, GSW outsccored Rockets by 20 per 100 in the season opener when Paul was on the court....hobbled.

    Why not say, "Paul lead a 10-0 run to start the 4th against GSW, showing glimpses of how the Rockets have improved when Harden sits to start the 4th."

    Why not say, "The Rockets new emphasis on defense showed in their 4th Q comeback against the defending champions on their ring ceremony night. When Paul comes back, they should be even stronger."

    Seriously, gotta push their narratives. CP3/Harden are a terrible fit together. Meanwhile, look at OKC's writeup. Russ is so unselfish and his new teammates are so clutch! (Never mind the fact that they lost the game).

    ^^ basically. lol they could have done worse and put us at #2 or 3 because of their stupid perception of CP3

    Similar to the post game show after the GSW win...

    "Rockets won, but they showed tonight why they cant beat GSW"

    Week 12

    1. Sigh, Houston Rockets
    Houston keeps winning, hope is not yet lost that Harden and Paul will not work out. In the last game Harden missed a free throw and Houston only hit 20 threes. Will continue to look for weakness and hoping for a couple of losse so I can put them behind the Phoenix Suns.
