worst. game. ever.
worst. game. ever.
Just like that they give up 4 straight points on 2 ****** defensive plays that are just basic fundamentals.
Iggy straight up pushed lin over for a free fastbreak... No call. Joey Crawford is a piece of ****.
Harden blows a layup, Parsons blows an open 3, and a Denver fastbreak to end the game.
Parsons and Mchale need to get their **** together. I really think Mchale is one of the worst coaches. He never seems to know what to do. He's like one of my high school coaches, Danny boy.
I dot solely mean the end of the game. He uses stupid lineups at the worst times. He doesnt play the 8 best players on our team, he has a knack for falling in love with ****** players, I've never seen him draw up a play coming out of a timeout that worked. He doesnt seem to try to put players in situations they can thrive
Awful game, I have no idea what McHale has in mind with this rotation without Motiejunas and Jones, and Morris and Douglas playing 35 minutes combined.
Anyway, I'm happy to see that the team could stay in the game despite Lin and Harden combining for just 21/8 shooting less than 30% from the field and 0-9 from the 3pt line. Patterson looked pretty good and so was Delfino. Harden and Lin will probably bounce back from this, but it's good to see we have other weapons.
IMO, refs called a horrible game. Somewhere while watching film on James harden, refs decided that they were not going to give him the calls that he's been getting these last 3 seasons. Every time he drove to the basket Denver was swiping at his arms, taking shots at the ball, and no call. But they have the nerve to say he was turnover prone this game! NO! He wasn't getting the calls he's always gotten and that's why we lost the game. Rockets played a tough match and lost because they were playing 5 on 8 for 42 minutes and were forced to take bad contested shots because the refs let Denver maul them in the paint. And what's crawfords vendetta against Morris? That was total BS. He basically threatened to throw him out in the first 10 minutes of the game. What's up with that? Refs had it in for H Town tonight
With all that being said. Rockets still had a chance in the last 6 mins to pull out a win. But couldn't overcome the setback that plagued them in the first 3 quarters. Excited to see how much these young guys learn from this game.
That was painful to watch.
Harden was a bit stale tonight, McGee, Iggy and Gallo were on point.
It's 11pm, I have severe heartburn, the 30 mile trip home was hard after quite the tab in the Silestone club, I've got a "Loaded Breakfast Sammich" in front of me, and a Rockets loss behind me. I hope we learned from this experience... that was a REALLY bitter pill to swallow. :(
I'm starting to miss Adelman. I have no idea why Patterson and Morris are shooting over 3 3pts and Parsons is shooting 5. All 3 are making less than 30% of these shots, Morris is 3 for 15 and he keeps shotting as if he were Ray Allen.
You can't win shooting that many low-quality shots and turning the ball almost 20 times a game. That's just ridiculous.
