What I mostly hate about last night's loss was that even though we gave up the lead, bricked all those FTs, and blew layups, Brewer STILL had us in the game only down 1 near the end. That **** is uncalled for based on the way we played when we did have the lead. Mentioned already on twitter, but along with the missed FTs, we let losers like Meyers Leonard and Robin Lopez be the keys to victory. Robin Lopez wasn't even making actual shots. Guys would brick on his team and he would just swipe in the air and it would go in. 2 Leonard 3s??? **** is ridiculous. And nic Batum, whose been sleepwalking all year of course wakes up when he sees the Rockets. I hate that ****.
This would've been a great game to cement the standings, but now, we have to finish with an overall better record because we don't have the tie breaker. It's possible to do, but we just made it more difficult.
Also, I'm not mad that Brewer got the last shot. He had the hot hand and had every right to shoot it. Harden would've been (more than likely) been doubled), but I can see why people were mad that the superstar didn't take the shot.
Need to flourish against Utah tonight. Can't let that stinging loss layover and have us down 15 in the first up there. Utah may stink, but they're still a young tough team that plays fast and furious. Similar to the Bucks.
