    They are playing about as poorly as we are after losing 2 games to Orlando and New Orleans

    Karls Towns is out and they have their undrafted Center Naz Reid player big mins

    Russell (the Rat) is their Harden Clone (poor mans harden) and is known to chuck

    Lets take this opportunity to blow them out and work out our internal kinks

    A blow out here would go a long way (give Harden some time to sit to rest as alot of posters here feel is worn out

    Would be great to have some momentum against the Fakers who are playing extremely well now

    Vegas has us as 4 point favorites so keep your confidence up ClutchFans. We can do this!!!!

    Yup

    But at least we are still the favorite

    We need to make sure Russell doesn't go off

    He has the ability to score 50

    As Towns is out, they are pretty much going with a small ball line up. So we need to hold our ground on rebounding

    We may manage a win here but we also could just as easily lose this and get waxed by LAL and very possibly lose to the Blazers again with Nurkic finally coming back. All the fun has left the building lately thats for sure ... i have zero faith in this team suddenly

    Timberwolves haven't won at Toyota Center since 2012. I'd like to see that streak continue....

    as quickly as we broke down, we can get back into just as quickly

    need the players to all buy in the plan and play as a team not for individual stats

    Honestly, the Rockets have jarred my faith in them in a rather cataclysmic way. I know WB was out 2 games ago..... but to have 5 straight games where we were down 15+ in the first half, and to have only won 1 of them, and to have 3 of them be L's to rather horrible teams....

    I just feel no confidence in their ability to win from game to game with what's happened recently. It's not on one person, but when I see MDA not making adjustments when things aren't working, or Harden continuing to turn the ball over at a high rate while taking ill-advised shots and having no energy/lift, then I feel like this is in no way just an issue of Rockets not hitting 3s.

    We could absolutely lose to Minnesota tomorrow, and we have really screwed ourselves in regards to potential homecourt advantage. What a waste. I really hope they turn it around, because honestly a lot of it seems like an effort issue, which is one of the most disappointing things. We burst out the gate after the AS break, and now were getting blown out by EVERY team, even on our homecourt. It's incredibly embarrassing.

    Can't hurt

    I think just a reminder to our star players that they need to set examples for the rest of the team

    dive for a loose ball, take a charge

    a leader thinks about how they can be the best team mate possible

    No idea where @hikanoo49 plucked his vegas point spread from or if he even know how it works but the spread is not -4

    It's Rockets -12.5

    Have Chris Clemens tickle Kat while running in circles around him... Would be very distracting and not against the rules. Small ball at it's finest strategy.

    Can we call this a "must win?" If the Wolves roll into town and blow us off the court, the season is officially over.
