    Yet, your fandom is secure with jacking up 3's during the final seconds of a blowout.

    Rockets can do no wrong, and their opponents are child molesters.

    What would you have them do, no shot attempt and 24 second violations the last 3-4 possessions?

    Lucas just wanted to score! Even then he failed to do so.

    It's so funny how all the Rockets run back on defense after that happened. They weren't having any of that silliness. If only we would hustle back like that at every game...

    Fool hush.

    If you've got issues with the Rox and Rox fans then gtfo. Stop trying to appear like "Mr. Impartially high and mighty".

    If Canaan was about to jack up a 3 with the seconds running down then you'd be right. He wasn't so you're not right. Just stop making yourself appear foolish and sound dumber with more horrendously inaccurate comparisons.

    LOL that was my first thought when I saw the clip of Lucas trying to square up.

    You beat me to the fighting Irish Leprechaun pic.

    I think we need Garcia and Bev to be our enforcers when the game gets chippy
    McHale has to send them out to protect our scorers when the refs don't make any calls

    what Lucas did wasn't anymore dirty than Beverly on Westbrick. You reap what you sow sometimes.

    Honestly shooting 3 's early in the shot clock when you're up 40? I don't think I would tolerate that either. But instead of waiting till the clock ran out I think I'd be dishing some very hard on - the ball fouls until I either fouled out or got a fight started. I think I'd simply say something to the guy I was on simply telling him if he chucks a 3 early in the clock I'm gonna hammer him. In that situation the good team has a lot more to lose than the bad one.

    3Rd unit wants to prove themselves. Play some defense for 47 min. Stop making excuses for a professional basketball team.

    Name calling? Oh my!!
    Sorry to upset you.

    I'll always cheer for the Rockets while they're in Houston. Will always cheer for whatever Houston team, while they're in Houston. Miss me with "issues with the Rox" (LOF) suggestions. That's the real reason for all these unnecessary arguments.

    Do you have an excuse for Bev's foul on Westbrook this season after the whistle?
    You know it was cheap just like every other poster who stopped responding after I mentioned it to them.

    It's all good man. Just calling things how I see them. No beef with you or any other true fan. We're are all in this together.
    Go Rockets

    Bev play on Westbrook was not dirty. Prior to that incident, going for a steal right before an expected timeout was a norm. What if Westbrook trotted to the halfcourt line like he was about to call timeout, and he jets to the basket for a layup as the defense goes to the bench relaxed in anticipation of and prior to the actual timeout whistle. Would that be dirty? Plus there was plenty of game left.

    What Lucas did was not the norm. Game was out of hand. It would be dirty as well if Canan drove for a dunk as opposed to dribbling out the clock. Just bad form by Lucas.
