    Houston most definitely will not lose 27 in a row, especially when Wood comes back. Dude was an all-star-level center when healthy. But the Rockets need to do right by Tucker and trade him to at least a playoff team. Ironically enough, I think Brooklyn would be somewhere Tucker would be useful. Too bad they don't have any picks or cap space.

They're not even close in most of these games, which usually feel out of reach by halftime.

    I do think they looked a little better with KPJ in the starting lineup. If they could get Wood back, I think they can win the occasional game again. But, honestly, in the grand scheme of things, if they do end up winning 21+ in a row, I won't care as long as they end up with a top 4 pick in this draft.
    Not that I thought that they would win but they were only down 4 points in the middle of the 4th against Utah. This is honestly the best thing for them. Keep getting experience yet keep losing. It’s hard to watch but hopefully it pulls off.

    In all seriousness, I actually think not getting Simmons could end up being a blessing in disguise. Getting Simmons would have kept them relevant. They would have won games, had confidence and tried to make a run with a core that never had any real chance of winning anything. Also, I'm not sure they trade for KPJ if they already had Simmons. (Not saying KPJ is close to Simmons' level, but he has the potential to be a real building block.)

    Houston needs to be terrible for a couple of years to start rebuilding from the ground up. And if they end up with that top 4 pick in this draft on top of Portland's pick and the three first rounders they have next year, there's a potential here for this team to build a very solid core around the young guys already in place (KPJ, Wood, Tate, KJ Martin). With Simmons, this team never would have had a shot at that top 4 pick.

    I am all for this route as well.

    They looked good against ATL, then we’re down by 20+, then tied it up in the fourth and the lost by about 10. Getting in some quality work while keeping that L.

    Really digging KJ Martin.

    Yeah, I caught most of the second half. KPJ, Tate and KJ Martin all looked great, and Mason Jones hit some big shots. I think those four guys with Wood could form a solid young core around whatever young pieces they get at the trade deadline and whatever guys they draft this offseason.

    Oladipo had his best game as a Rocket, and he's looked pretty damn good in the three games since the All-Star break—averaging 28/6/4 on 45%/33%/81% shooting splits. If he can keep that up for a couple more games and keep pushing that value, I still think there's a market for him between now and March 25.

    If Wood plays tonight, I think the Rockets have a decent shot at a win against the Warriors. But I wouldn't be shocked to see him miss more time.

    What do you think a fair return for Oladipo is?

    Before the game, Bill Worrell (the Rockets play by play guy) guaranteed a win today because the Rockets had Wall, Oladipo and Wood playing while OKC was missing their top guys (Dort was the only guy I knew but a few of the other youngins felt sorta similar). I immediately knew Houston would lose. Still watched for some reason.

    I would think the Rockets will move Oladipo before the trade deadline.

    I just hope they don't give up on the young talent too quick. Owners looking for a quick fix often screw this sort of chance up.

    It's ok, it's battle of the losing streaks tomorrow. Rockets put their 20 game losing streak to the test against the Raptors 8 game losing streak.

    Raptors, Hornets with no LaMelo, and then b2b against the TWolves. If they don’t win one of those the losing streak might go on into next season lol
