Rockets are like last year's Thunder now, but with old vets instead of a bunch of youngsters

This always what the Rockets have done though. Since we drafted Olajuwon there hasn't been a stretch where the Rockets are ever a tanking team. Even after the Yao and TMac era we were competitive until trading for Harden.

We got number 1 pick in Yao so yes we have been bad after Hakeem
[–]NBA GAV17 21 指標 3小時前
It was one season, the season after Hakeem retired and Francis missed games. They even got lucky with the odds as they werent bottom 3 teams. They had like 3 losing seasons since drafting Hakeem in 84. I think that all of those bad seasons are explaine atleast in part because of injrues and not because they had awful teams.

Don’t have a lot of rebuild pieces active but am happy to be able to be pretty good while we’re waiting for our picks to land

If we keep playing this well, we may never see the picks in Houston.

4 game win streak for Houston. Mad respect to how their players have competed this year in the face of adversity and off court drama.

Rockets defense really impressed me. Silas got yall defending defending

Look at the team, the only maybe subpar defender is Wood and Cousins, and they are working on it
[–][POR] Damian Lillard Goducks91 15 指標 4小時前
Do you think we would be better if we had replaced Stotts with Silas at the start of the season?
[–]Trail Blazers Familyguy35 11 指標 4小時前
Hard to say honestly. Silas looks good but pretty early to say anything about him concretely. Terry is growing on my nerves lately tho….

Thought this team wasn’t good enough, that’s what Harden said.
[–][BRK] Brook Lopez dgarrad 6 指標 4小時前
The Harden was the problem people are really dumb. BUT, you have to give it to the Rockets this roster is good enough to be a playoff team and the defense has really turned around. Look tough and rugged really fun team to watch. The Rockets after 8 years of being my league pass team cause of Harden are officially still my league pass team.

Harden was part of the problem…but it wasn't because he wasn't good enough, it was because he wasn't trying.
[–]Toxic-Raioin -2 指標 3小時前
it was pretty much 4 v 5 on defense. regardless of how good he is on offence that's not a winning strat.
[–]New Jersey Nets ComeAtMeYo 2 指標 3小時前
This is a bad take and has been for years and you should feel bad
[–]Rockets CJ4ROCKET 3 指標 1小時前
He's just talking about this year. HOU has the #1 drtg in the league since the trade. They were below average before the trade. I'm sure Harden is playing fine D for you guys.
[–]Toxic-Raioin 4 指標 3小時前
Harden isnt complete trash on d like he was originally but watching Vic play def compared to Harden is night and day.
[–]RocketsPsykotixx 4 指標 3小時前
It's insanely frustrating, if he came in to the season with a good attitude the Rockets could very well be a favorite, maybe even THE favorite at this point.
[–][HOU] Yao Ming Fmeson 6 指標 3小時前
He had made his mind up already. Sucks, but it is what it is.
This new version of the Rockets is awesome though, we got a lot to look forward to.

Wall and Dipo really need to run More pnr with this dude and get him post ups
I didn’t see much of that today. That’s where Harden was on a different level. Just finding Wood letting him cook

I was looking at the West contenders for a front court allstar spot and it's looking like it will be between Zion and Wood for the final selection.

No lie this Houston team is fuuuun to watch. They have a bunch of players people gave up on and they are out to prove the world wrong. They pray really good defense and they have some really good scorers. Future looking good for Houston.

Blazers had some unreal 3pt shooting in the 2nd half but we pulled off the dub anyway.
[–]Rockets LightSkinDarylMorey 21 指標 4小時前
Trent and Simons just seem like guys who will make some BS shots
[–][POR] Brandon Roy Arr0wmanc3r 4 指標 3小時前
Gary is a cheat code from three but Simons isn't that good of a shooter from deep. He has more bounce and a better handle than Gary tho and probably a higher ceiling.

I was sure we were going to get another classic dagger from Dame there.

The defense from Gordon and Oladipo to not even let Dame shoot was amazing (PJ with perfect help as always)

[–][POR] Brandon Roy NevermoreSEA 32 指標 4小時前
Melo might actually be the most frustrating player to watch in the NBA. He single-handedly lost us this game. I could handle it if he was also passing and playing defense, but he's awful in both of those areas. It's depressing seeing someone pass the ball to him, because you know that all he's going to do is take a bad shot.
[–]New Jersey Nets Dededelete49 11 指標 4小時前
What’s funny is that as bad as he was, he was a team high +11 tonight
[–]Warriors AndItsNotCloseNephew 28 指標 4小時前
I mean that just shows you how useless +/- is. He was bad on both ends in a loss
