You have to dribble out the shot clock against a team with 4 all-stars, 3 of which are the best shooters in the NBA....

That might have been the worse coaching job ever in a game 7. No adjustments at all when plan A does not work. Stubborn stupid.

I hate this NBA is rigged narrative that a lot of you keep parroting.

The Rockets, at one point, missed 27 consecutive 3 point shots. The refs and the league had nothing to do with the fact that they couldn't hit anything in the second half, again, for the second consecutive game.

The refs had nothing to do with Rozier and the Celtics missing every thing in the 4th quarter last night. Literally, the best teams always win the NBA. It's bitter fans and delusional "haters" who keep steering this narrative and, for whatever reason, the rest of you pick up the pitchforks.

I was wishing like hell that the Rockets would win, but they're just not good enough. Even without the few missed calls, the Rockets were still going to lose because they couldn't hit anything.

But he comes down and dribbles out the shot clock without passing the ball

Unless the Rockets were in on it...

If the Rockets blew a lead when CP3 played in Game 6, why was it such a big deal that he didn't play in Game 7?

I mean if CP3 was that important there would have never been a game 7

Yeah that was my error. lol But why are so many people acting like CP3 is Michael Jordan? They was lucky to win Games 4 and 5 with CP3 in the lineup

Why does Michael Jordan get mentioned all the time? CP3 was their team leader.

Dude, Houston was trying to knock out the defending champions with their 4 all stars, and lost one of their only two all stars. And you're struggling to figure out why it's a big deal??

Because the way he played in Game 5 was just like Harden

1. Shooting long unnecessary 3's

2. Not getting teammates involved


Who the Rockets need to release in the offseason is Ariza
