    I put the loss on Morey. We don't have enough size and as a result we cannot have a good rebounder close to the basket in this kind of situation. Battier was guarding two people at that point, he boxed out one of them. If instead of Battier we had someone tall than they would have been able to grab the rebound.
    I think the decision to change the lineup in the middle of the 4th qtr also hurt us. The group was doing nice job of defending and scoring, but after the lineup change we couldn't score and they made a big run.

    uhhh...no...

    I dunno about u but I actually care about this team....however that doesn't mean taking out my frustrations and passion on random objects..not sure where your mind leads onto with that..

    but you do seem you're experienced with those kind of things you mentioned...

    Scola, Adelman, and Battier suck in the clutch.

    Complaints complaints complaints... guess we should win EVERY game according to some of you.

    I am very proud of the fight our guys showed tonight. We were down by 7 and stuck with it. Cant ask for more than that from this group. They never give up. This will only make them better later on in the season. Stop trying to place blame for us losing this game. It was just a great play by a hell of an athlete. If he doesn't do that you all would be praising AB and Hayes for a good defensive effort on Bibby to make him miss. Sometimes the ball just bounces that way.

    Vegas had us as 7 point dogs tonight... I won money on that.

    The Rockets keep playing their hearts out against superior teams and bringing themselves to the brink of victory only to have it snatched away at the end. I'm not sure how much left they have in their tank after these devastating losses.

    I didn't watch the game today, so can someone shed light on why AB only had 2 assists and why Ariza took almost half his shots from 3pt? Was the ATL defense breaking down our plays?

    7-22 from 3pt as a team, 32%.. I'm assuming this was yet another example of being trigger happy from downtown?

    Ariza wasn't making his shots. AB was passing mainly to the starters who couldn't hit a barn.

    I just gave a dumb question a deserving response. What? Did I hurt your feelings?

    yeh Im glad you know where I'm coming from....but I think that game was totally winnable and we SHOULD have won that for sure...we were good enough talent wise and teamwork wise...but it was just one missed box out that ruined the whole game.

    Morey could certainly make this team better but I'm just saying that even without any further improvements we were definitely capable of winning this game from every standpoint.

    It hurts, you know
