    He didn't think the Rockets matched the physicality, toughness of Minnesota.

    Wait now Sengün's 7 ft does not look like real 7 feet.

    Wemby put himself in the game despite Pope and got pulled back the very next deadball the other day. Thats what he was pointing at.

    In this particular play, he never read the play. He played Amen as a small forward when the team needed a shooter. Can Amen shoot? Reggie Bullock should have gotten more minutes in this game. I'm very disappointed. Very disappointed.

    We also struggled against the length of the Magic in the first game of the season, but at least we made a run in the third to keep it close.

    Never seemed like we were in this game after the second quarter.

    Sucks, but the Twolves are legit. On to the next night

    Yeah, that's how i feel about it. Middle of the pack team getting beat by a top of the league team. Shrug, learn from it, and on to the next one.

    Bullock was not winning us this game and he won't win games in the future. Amen will win games in the future. I'm good with it as it gave the team a taste of how much more they need to grind and how far they need to go.

    Udoka, the Head Coach said it was the worst game & our play of the season!!!
    He was right !
    He forgot to say it was also the worst coaching job of this season, so far !
    He seems to have at times no idea which players should be playing.!
    I give him till the end of the season to show us just how good his coaching can be ! Yettis

    For losing the game? Why lose the game so Amen can play? Each game needed its own different players. This game was about finding the open man and shooting.

    "He didn't do a Wemby." Lock this man up as our head coach for life!

    The Rockets desperately need front court help.

    I do not think they are middle of the pack, if Dillon Brooks is out, they are probably only an 11th-12th seed.
