    That is the game right there + literally no bench outside of Rivers. We need shooters. Also, how is our 4th quarter always our downfall? We have a lead 90% of the time and then give up 30-45 points in the 4th...

    Westbrook has thrown at least two games being who he is. Clippers and Spurs games.

    God if we had CP3 we’d be #1 in the West right now without a doubt on my mind.

    When you shoot 37% as a team you are likely going to lose. Volume shooting is deceptive and defeating.

    Never gonna win a chip with this kind of playing style. Whenever we are leading by a big margin, i always knew that we are gonna crap ourselves. Somethings gonna change

    I know the Rockets blew the lead and they are to blame for that but the organization should still protest.

    I knew we'd lose by 1-2 points the moment that call happened and of course we did.

    Westbrook should never make 4th quarter decisions.

    Yeah, but who do you replace him with? Turner? Big step, and no guarantee Harden and Westbrook won't just do their own thing anyway.

    Im so sad. if Westbrook shoots like a normal human this game would have been a 50pt blow out.

    Harden ran out of gas and got frustrated and for Westbrook...im starting to regret having him now, I never been so frustrated watching a player like this before in a game.

    Harden is legendary, but not 4 on 9.

    Can't beat an NBA team + refs + Westbrook

    The Westbrook “problem” is magnified in a sense because the defense can now cheat two steps back. The Harden-Capela pick and lob dunk seems way down probably because Westbrook’s defender is creeping back.

    Looking at the boxscore it looks like Mike reverted to his old ways. He ran 5 guys for 40+ minutes with PJ playing 52! That's not a player rotation consistent with winning and it is eeriely similar to his Game 4 rotations in 2018 (with Paul blowing out his hamstring the next game.)

    No at some point that’s why you have this thing called a coach. If something isn’t working, you have this “expert” willing to lend advice on other Alternatives to achieve the objective of scoring the F-ing basketball.

    I think it’s pretty obvious the team is run by harden and Westbrook. Dantoni has no say in this.

    Westbrook is the worst shooter in the NBA.

    Westbrook was absolute Garbage.

    Harden really wasn’t all that great either but was good enough to win.

    This team isn’t winning anything without making some moves.

    PJ Tucker needs to slap the **** out of Westbrook every time he tries to shoot outside of transition. He is basically Rajon Rondo at this point

    Harden bad, but can you blame him when Westbrook is turning it over and shooting jump shots like someone with MR
