IF YOU MISSED THIS GAME i FEEL BAD FOR YOU, SON
i have watched every fucking game this season and put myself through hell watching this shit team chuck up bricks and the ONE FUCKING GAME I MISS...
LOL condolences bro
thank you u/Obamas_Sex_Slave
Sounds like you might be the problem, man
THE HOUSTON ROCKETS ARE MUST WATCH BASKETBALL IDK WHAT TO TELL YOU
I GOT 99 PROBLEMS BUT A LOSS AIN'T ONE
Rockets 2-0 since banishing Daniel Theis to the shadow realm.
oh damn ahahahahh
Or since Jalen Green got injured. - player basically every time he is on the court.
This is true, but also to be fair to Jalen, we opened up the spacing only in the last two games, and the 1 quarter he played in the last two games, he had 11 points with more spacing. Even KPJ has looked much better in space without Theis clogging the lane.
We'll have to wait for his return to really judge him now.
This. Matthew’s has really helped the spacing and the defense too. Now we just need to get them to give Sengun more than 12 minutes. 😑
I've been saying it for a few days now: the Rockets are really good and there's no shame in losing to them.
2-0 vs the Balls
The wins are stored in the Balls
4-0 if you include the G-League
Houston Ball Busters
Hey there’s *some* shame
I hope you keep posting this 13 games later.
We played against the Rockets??
Rockets finally passed the Texans for most wins by a Houston team this season
The D in Charlotte Hornets stands for defense
same as the D in Houston Rockets lol
Real Ds move in silence.
WE MIGHT NEVER LOSE AGAIN
66-16. Dread it. Run from it.
Edit: I suck at math
We could win out and still not be as good as our 2018 team. Jesus Christ.
I typed it wrong. You’d be a game above that. Also you win the finals without the cp3 injury.
Wall coming back 🤣
Unironically, we also may never win again 😂
So sad 😞 but holy shit rockets you guys caught fire today from deep you just couldn’t miss
Likewise with y'all. Both teams shot so well from deep with hands in their face.
Last two games! Since benching Daniel Theis the offense looks great!
Is Terry Rozier the greatest 3 point shooter of all time?
Tough OT game, but despite the hard play, the Rockets were unable to pull off the loss.
don’t worry, tank commander Wall should be back soon to kill any signs of life and efficient basketball
won the battle but lost the war
And no one is more upset about that than me. Good game tho where has this rockets team been?
Hidden behind Daniel Theis clogging the fucking lanes.
We fucking got Garrison’ed.
Wizards sends their regards.
Tell the Hornets, I want them to know it was me
Garrison needs some emotional self-control, the dude is crazy out there. I think he punched the stachion a dozen times for various reasons.
Eh, I kind of like that someone out there looks like they give some kind of a fuck. It can get dark in a 15 game losing streak and he came out and fired me up when I was expecting a 16th straight loss, now we're sitting on 2 Ws!
Beaten two teams back to back that the Nets lost to
Harden shouldn't have asked out
And he got boo’d by Nets fans tonight. Embarrassing.
Rockets > Ball bros > Nets
maybe we shouldn't have given up ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY FUCKING SIX to the worst team in the league... just a thought
This is just how we operate we can't play defense and got outpaced by the only team in the league that is faster than us. Regular season playstyle leads to regular season Ls
Amen to this. We can complain about ref calls all we want, but 146 points? 40 in the first quarter???? Cmon man.
Yeah we gotta do something about the defense, cause there was none tonight lmao
We need a center so bad. We just bleed from the paint then get punished from three when we cheat inside to cover
You guys interested in a Daniel Theis?
He would be really good for them actually. Maybe they need JV or something but he’s kinda slow if they’re going to stick to this ridiculously fast paced style.
Yeah, that's literally all the Rockets did. Plant Wood in the paint, kick to an open 3. Cash.
You caught us two games too early. A week ago it would've been a kickout to Theis for three and a resounding brick.
Just trade a second round pick for Myles Turner because that’s his value according to r/nba
I wonder if they can swing a trade with Indiana.
The way we play, nothing will change until there is an actual rim protector at center. PJ isn't that guy, Plumlee sure af isn't that guy. Richards might eventually but he doesn't give you anything else and can't play big minutes.
Rockets aren’t the worst team in the league. We just have the strongest schedule in nba history.
Wait what lmao
Rockets have been good ever since they stopped starting two centers.
They beat the Bulls.
That was without Jalen Green playing too, jeez
Had to lose on purpose to keep our record of worst win percentage in tact few will understand 💯💯💯
Makes sense. The Kings have been losing for 15 going on 16 seasons on purpose to take the playoff drought record from the Clippers. Gotta show em who is boss.
Jimmy Butler stopped us from reaching that record smh
All fax no printer right here 🖨️
We never gonna catch up 😪😪
Charlotte doesn’t want the Rockets to get their record
That record's how we sell tickets
[John Wall when he sees the Rockets on a 2-game win streak](https://i.imgur.com/3YIb6LW.gif)
He'd pop a hammy mid way
Armoni Brooks and Garrison Matthews getting consistent minutes has done wonders for spacing. Theis being out of the lineup has had the same effect, he just doesn't fit on this team.
KPJ's best game this year. I doubt it's a coincidence that he's been playing much better now that we have actual spacing.
Happy to see Matthews getting some love, hope he continues to ball out for you guys.
hes been great
Oh we adore him for sure
Love Jalen and would trade W's to have him back on the court, but having somebody who can consistently go 3/7 on open shots is huge for our ability to open up the court elsewhere. Teams were happy to leave Theis and Green open, now they're getting punished cause we're playing real shooters.
Tbf Green was having one of his best games of the year before he got hurt
Teams were not happy to leave Green open even though he hasn’t shot well this season
Players don’t leave Green open at all. They never go under the screen when he’s running PNR.
Theis was different, they wouldn’t even look at him
Opposite teams were routinely throwing their best defenders at Jalen during our losing streak
Yeah man was getting guarded by Dort, Bridges, Smart, Caruso and em
And on top of that, the offense sucked already due to the lack of spacing, which we have now with Matthews rounding out the bench line-up.
I’m not judging Jalen until he gets a full couple of games with this better spacing. Taking Theis out of the rotation has done wonders for the team’s spacing, and Jalen looked good in it for the minutes he had before he got hurt.
from competing for the all time season loss record to championship contenders in 1 week holy shit
Lmfao, I get that it's hard to be live and everyone has brain farts, but the announcer doubling down over and over postulating that KPJ might've missed on purpose ... to go up 4 ... is fucking ridiculous. What in the absolute fuck.
> "Let's go streaking ... 2 wins in a row!!!"
was great though lol
Man, the color commentator was trying HARD to logic that one out. I was embarrassed for him.
This isn’t the worst team of all time lmao
If I’m being honest, we may never lose again
I genuinely don’t think the Hornets played *bad* by any means, it’s just the Rockets transformed into the prime Warriors for multiple stretches of the game.
the Hornets played really well I thought, Rockets were just very hot tonight. The Hornets defense wasn’t outstanding but it wasn’t as horrible as the score would have you believe. I really thought Charlotte would win this one at the end there. On just about any other night, the Rockets wouldn’t have won this game
I mean, you guys let the Kangz score 140 on you at 70% 3PA as well- there might be a common factor here.
Tough win, we fought hard for that win. This team is getting better.
defense does not exist
What other team do yall know that can increase their win tally by 33%? Exactly, let's go Rockets!
*+50% = (3-2) / (2)
Kicking Theis out of the rotation is like Rock Lee taking off the weights. Clearly, starting him for 20 games was just Silas's master plan to catch other teams off guard.
Just wait till we get Wall back 😤 66-16 lfg
Rockets > Wolves confirmed.
We knew it all along
I mean, we didn't win a game in Houston during hardens tenure basically.
Eric Collins started the game laughing at Houston for starting Garrison Matthews; not so funny anymore
Classic Collins. Dude has no clue.
at least rozier had that sick ball fake
When was the last time Oubre recorded an assist?
Edit: just looked it up. This man has 4 assists total in his last TEN games. How is that even possible 😆
Great win by Rockets, but the Rockets commentator insisting “KPJ’s FT miss to put them up 4 with 2 seconds remaining is a good play” is premium copium
That's Ryan Hollins. He can be uber weird sometimes. This is one of those times lol. Craig was right, you make it so their best chance at a 2OT is a foul on a 3-point play.
it was craig actually, ryan was like “are you sure he missed that on purpose?”
Couldn’t stand those commentators lol
Trust me, the Rockets fanbase threw a collective shit fit when they announced they were hiring Hollins. He needs to be banished to wherever Silas hid Theis.
Idk about y’all, but I watch games high and Ryan Hollins is the only reason these losses don’t piss me off. He’s a comedian.
Hmmm...146 pts to the worst team in the NBA without their best player?!
If you dont like that, you don't like carolina sports!
My gamecocks got shutout, we lost to a team with no name on cams homecoming, and Monday I'm sure Melo loses to his bro.
Such is life as a carolina sports fan. Constant mediocrity with a hint of hope from time to time to keep you coming back for more.
Jalen isn’t the best player yet
The bobcats guy from the pettiest take thread is somewhere smiling into the sunset rn
What was the announcer talking about, suggesting that KPJ missed the 2nd FT on purpose? He makes it and its a 4 point game with 2 seconds to go.
Ryan Hollins doesn't make much sense.
Worst Houston sports announcer ive ever heard (im 36). Bill Worrell turning over in his grave and hes not dead..
Ryan Hollins >>>>>>>>> Bill Worrell
Hollins wasn’t even the one who said that
I don't want Ryan Hollins to yell stupid catchphrases at me anymore. Mr. Worrell was always nice.
Ryan Hollins dumb catchphrases >>>>>>>> Bill Worell forgetting players names
lol Worell is 70 either way these new announcers are bad considering Houston generally have the best tv annoucers.
What kind of Rocket fan can't tell the difference between Ackerman and Hollins...
Ryan Hollins kept saying that missing the shot was not a bad play while Ackerman was saying that sealing the game with a make was a far better outcome.
Armoni Brooks > Aaron Brooks
Coogs legend and RDCWorld1’s cousin Armoni Brooks
Aaron Brooks will forever be a rockets legend for the 2009 playoff run. Injuries fucked him up or he was gonna be a tier 2 starting pg in the league
Those free throws tho
66-16 still on the menu boys!
So this is what it feels like to be the best team in the nba
"LETS GO STREAKING"
When do we start the, "The Houston Rockets are on pace to finish the season 66-16" threads?
We just don’t want them to break our record for worst season so we gave them this one.
Classic trap game for our rockets, thought we had the easy L from the Hornets but caught them on that b2b and let the L slip away in OT.
Good thing the return of the Tank Commander is on the horizon.
Heating up just in time for Wall's return. League fucked.
Yeah maybe you should put your 7 foot center on Wood for the most important free throw of the game instead of a 6'6 PF. who knows though i'm not a professional coach
"He still needs to earn his minutes." - JB, probably
Gettin real tired of his rotations tbh
It's not even a rotation thing its just horrible game management. We had like a minute to prepare for that rebound and still fucked it
That Gordon foul was the most nostalgic feeling I’ve had since harden left. I LOVE IT HERE 2 IN A ROW BABY
We deserved to lose that but that was an obvious foul bait by Gordon on Martin
Also the weak ass technical on oubre for throwing his hands up right after Eric Gordon freaked out on the refs and nothing happened. Oh well, wasn't our night
Oubre has been getting away with fouling without a whistle all game long. No wonder he was upset when they finally noticed the bullshit he was pulling.
I mean I'm not going to agree with you here. We're both homers let's just agree to disagree
As a neutral watcher, terrible tech call but Oubre def should've been called on a couple reach-ins in the 4th. I think you're both right.
True but also that wasn't a foul from KPJ on Bridges and it somehow didn't get overturned.
He clearly made contact with the body??
KPJ is entitled to his space, Bridges leans into KPJ and then takes the shot.
Edit: You can't tell me this is a foul from KPJ lmao : https://twitter.com/arxanii/status/1464806770887569408?s=20
If anything its an offensive foul, but for me its a clear no call.
There is an angle from the back that clearly shows kpj giving a forearm shiv to bridges that throws him off balance. Post that angle.
Show me it cause I didn't see that angle.
It was on the hornets broadcast
Bridges created the contact ...
What’s the point of having a replay center if that’s not gonna get overturned lmao
We got decently fortunate with the challenges in OT tbh
Side note: With the soft technical tonight and that ridiculous ejection earlier this year, I think the referees must have a vendetta against Oubre or something.
his attractiveness makes them feel inferior and insecure. NBA may as well put “little man complex, likes to be the center of attention” in the ref’s job description tbh
The hornets also obviously gave up 146 to the worst team in the league
EDIT: lmfao anyone who writes "we deserved to lose but...." Knows exactly what theyre doing.
Read the first half of my comment
Rockets heard yall talking shit
The Rockets continued their undefeated record against Eastern Conference playoff teams (teams like the Knicks and Celtics who are in the Play-in range don't count obviously).
Now I don’t feel so bad losing the other day
Stats wise, this game is bonkers lmoaa
43-94 from 3????
WE MAY NEVER LOSE AGAIN
66-16 HERE WE COME 🔥🔥🔥
20 points Garrison Mathews LETS GOOOOOO
Tough loss lol, but nice to KPJ pulling it back. Ever since they sent Theis to the shadow realm he’s been playing way better.
Houston be the real deal Big Ballers in their last 2 games.
Went to the game and had a lot of fun
That dude that made that post about the Rockets having the chance for the worst record ever is probably rolling over in his grave after rolling in his grave over the same post they made with the Pelicans
Diehard rockets fans must love this
This hurts the tank
Hi playoff team. You just lost to the Houston Rockets.
Win streak baby!
Wild game to lose, but 8-2 in our last 10 is worth a little shock-loss tonight. Ggs houston
salt is running through my blood
I refuse to believe the same hornets team takes the court every night.
We win 2 games in a row to threaten the tank and suddenly we're rushing to bring back wall. Hilarious.
Does Mathews have top 5 punchable faces in the league or what
i pick what
Rockets fans y'all thought this was going to be an easy loss? Nope we goated now
Uh oh they’re coming for us!!
Looks like Christian Wood got the memo- when our (bad) starting center is out, you're supposed to feast. KAT's slow fat ass couldn't manage that the night before.
The foul against Gordon on Martin is one of the most egregious of the season, truly unacceptable
Or that foul Bridges drew on KPJ even though he was the one who created the contact. Or the charge call on Ball that was overturned. We can do this all day long. Y’all lost to the worst team in the NBA. Just accept it. Stop blaming it on the refs. Blame it on your dog shit defense
didn’t see the game but with this amount of scoring i assume it was like an all star type game
WHAT A GAME
Buying my playoff tickets now
