    Rockets booed by home crowd during disastrous loss to Magic

    After some encouraging early returns on their small-ball experiment, the wheels may be quickly falling off for the Houston Rockets.

    The Rockets got steamrolled in the first half on Sunday by the lowly Orlando Magic and ended the disaster half down by 25 points, thanks in part to three technical fouls in the span of the final minute of the second quarter. As a result, the team heard boos from their home fans at the Toyota Center, per Jonathan Feigen of The Houston Chronicle.



    ✔@Jonathan_Feigen



    Not that the Rockets are falling apart or anything, but three technical fouls in the final minute of the half. (Green, Covington, D'Antoni.) Rockets padding Augustin's stats. Magic by 25. Boos in Toyota Center.





    While the Houston fans may have been partly booing the officials for calling the technical fouls, it’s hard to imagine that they were pleased with the 71-46 deficit at the break, especially at the hands of the 28-35 Magic.

    Orlando wound up winning by the slightly less lopsided final of 126-106. But with the Rockets now losers of their last four straight games, it is safe to say that they have been stinking up the place lately in more ways than one.

    you mean the boos weren't for the refs and techs. TC barely even cheers for the Rockets, but now they want to get loud allegedly :rolleyes:

    whatever boos were heard at TC were real light...Rockets don’t have the type of crowd that will get on them when they’re playing bad or really cheer them on when they’re playing well

    as for me, I think I’m good on going to any games at TC until further notice...last thing I want to do is waste my money on pure fckery

    imagine paying premium prices to see that pathetic play from the team against the Clippers

    Rockets, we can talk once the playoffs start...that’s when u might get my money again

    as of right now, I don’t even want to be within a 5 mile radius of TC

    If booing in Toyota Center happens and no one is around to hear it, did it really happen? :p

    If the players can tune out their coach I'm sure they can tune out the fans.

    Hahahah exactly. Cannot imagine playing of a dead crowd like that and feel like you have home court advantage, that's why 5-8 seed is not so bad. We play better in a hostile environment.

    They need to throw garbage at them like they use to in the WCW matches.

    The fans recognize a flawed product or when players are not putting in the effort.

    Given the talent and expectations of this team, they shouldn't be near the 6th or 7th seed and certainly not losing 4 in a row, 3 of those games to sub-.500 East teams
