John Lucas and John Wall leave the pitch after losing 19 in a row.
So cold, many wish former general manager Daryl Morey had stayed to help the team through the storm to fight instead of fleeing to Cancun, um, Philadelphia.
The way the dominoes fell, especially the rash of injuries after the deal with James Harden, so did the new GM Rafael Stone done well as anyone.
Harden took many Rockets victories with him to Brooklyn. At least with him on the ground, the rockets wouldn’t be an embarrassment.
If you didn’t already know the Rockets are in the middle of a season where you can’t or can’t win, reality would have arrived last week They entered the game on a 15-game slide last Sunday, but their next seven games were set to take place in the mostly empty but friendly rooms of the Toyota Center.
Christian Wood, currently the largest Hope for a star player in the future should return after an injury not accidentally spanning their entire 15-game losing streak. (Houston had a win record before he sprained an ankle.)
And John Wall and Danuel House should be back on the ground after a missed time with injuries.
There was hope that the Rockets couldn’t hit the franchise record of 17 direct losses. Not because the team showed signs that they are better than a record loss, just that, like buying a lottery, you are hoping for luck.
These rockets are no good and they have been out of luck. They’ve only won one game since February 1st.
Lowly Oklahoma City is in town for a Sunday afternoon tip and certainly thinks there’s a chance of a 20th straight loss to one of only two teams to lose in the Western Conference with a worse record than before.
It is so bad that on Tuesday we reached the point in the program where everyone fired the rockets because they did not give up. It was like applauding an off-key singer for showing the courage to pick up the mic and sing a full solo, mostly off-key.
That was after that, albeit Inexperienced, understaffed missiles fought back from a 23-point hole to get the result against the Hawks. Atlanta, favored with nine points, took the place on the next run and eventually won with 12.
It was an inspiring effort by the Rockets. It was another loss. It was predictable.
I would never advise throwing hard-earned money into the capricious world of betting, but betting the Rockets to lose was the best bet in the NBA this season.
They don’t throw games – I mean, we haven’t seen Elvin Hayes run out of the tunnel in a rocket uniform … yet – they just don’t win.
History lesson for the kids who came across it on your smartwatch : Hayes was one of the best players in the game, but the 53 minutes he played in an overtime loss in his penultimate game was the most played by anyone older or older at the time.
The Rockets took that loss to secure a place in the coin toss that led them to select Hakeem Olajuwon # 1 in the 1984 draft.
The only time in franchise history that the Rockets have more than 29 of their first losing 40 games was 1982/83 when they entered the season – similar to the end of the following year – and tried to win the drafting rights (by losing them) to Ralph Sampson.
Since the UH Cougars play like a Final Four team, spring training becomes standard -Optimism for the Astros and Texans published seemingly hourly with a player transaction or other allegation of inappropriate behavior against quarterback Deshaun Watson.
With his line-up due to injury, head coach Stephen Silas had to start 27 different line-ups in 40 games.
« There are no excuses, » said Silas. “This is the NBA. We have to get better no matter who we are on the ground. “
Without a doubt, the NBA’s best run of the Rockets will end with eight straight playoff appearances this season. The question is, how long will they be a team whose greatest wins are moral ones.
Well, only four times in team history have the Rockets made the playoffs in two or more consecutive seasons. Each of these departures included the departure of a Hall of Fame player.
Those bad old days started when Elvin Hayes, Moses Malone, Hakeem Olajuwon, and Yao Ming left town.
Jerome grew up in downtown Acres Homes, Texas. He is a proud graduate of Mabel B. Wesley Elementary and captained a basketball team at Waltrip High School, where he helped the Mighty Rams hit a record of nearly 500.
He’s a math genius and college engineer and he’s still working on this writing thing. He says the three years he spent as F.M. Black Panther probably played a more prominent role in the man he would become than the time he spent in college.
