Houston...we have a problem. As the game wore on, an unsettling reality set in on even the most optimistic Rocket fan:
I wish I could be more optimistic...but we're going to be the punching bag for the Lakers' revival.
This will be ugly.
Lakers are gonna play with angels flying out of their butts to impress their new coach. Why we had to stand in front of the wrecking ball is a vagary of the scheduling gods. This might get ugly, but the Rockets have risen to the occasion before.
Dwight's killing us.
Who's defending the post?
Apparently no one.
Asik decided to let Dwight bully him tonight. Unfortunate.
Jeezus. Kobe on fire.
I wish Harden was T-mac.
Starting on a chinese basketball team???
Harden blows as much as our defense
kobes on a mission tonight eugh.
meltdown I hate f****** gasol
Man this is pitiful
Lakers blows this year but always shows up for us.
No exception. Kobe never has an off game against us, EVER
NBA refs are making me hate basketball
Refs barely the problem. Lakers offense is filthy. Mike Brown is an idiot.
F*** EVERYTHING ABOUT THE LAKERS
Pau Pushed Patrice Patterson in the back!
It is going to be hard enough to win in LA as it is, now the refs are in on the fix, we are doomed.
Ugh, the first real quarter of basketball for the D'Antoni era Lakers is looking very D'Antonish.
League on notice.
Lakers are truly a D'Antoni team... and he isn't even here.
we match up pretty bad with the Lakers. a 30 blowout wouldn't surprise me because on paper we are **** compared to them.
This game makes me miss Yao. Yao would make that sorry a** Howard cry
The Lakers can beat you from so many ways, so annoying, its not fair!!
lakers are shooting close to 70% smh
they have just so many weapons. F***..
shouldn't we be out-running them? isn't that the plan..let the fresh legs run over the lakers starters and get them tired....we are playing a slower game pace that favors the lakers...LETS RUN GUYS
Gotta love the Lakers gameplan:
1. Knock out Asik.
2. Let Howard then take over.
Lakers giving off that "no matter how well you play, you're not winning" vibe. I HATE that vibe.
why arent there any videos of Harden passing?
Dwight eating everyone alive..
Hate to say it but, we need Dwight
People don't believe, for some reason, that a team with Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, and Pau Gasol is really good. They just look at record (in a small sample size) and assume it's an average team.
it is so hard to play defense against the Lakers because every single player on their team can beat you easily
Lin no more China tours next offseason please. Work on your jumper.
Artest pimp slaps Lin then says my bad dawg lmao
Fkn MWP back handed Lin...
Metta World War
Nice pass by Harden... To kobe
game over. 9-0 laker run
lol..we need to regroup. F***
And Game Over
WTF MWP torching Harden
Man, Rockets look like clowns out here!!!
I hate the Lakers
Sad to see us so scared tonight
Come on Kobe/Dwight, go get some rest...
Kobe torching us
Kobe Bryant just ate Terrence Jones lunch...
Kobe could be 45 years old and still make everything on the Rockets.
We're getting seriously embarrassed.
We are who we thought we were
just not our day. They are too good.
Lakers kinda annoyed that we are still trying lol
I think Dwight is really causing havoc for the guards. they fear him, even though is not exactly 100%.
Lakers go up by 19 and Kobe comes back in.
I aint even mad.....
Wow our first blow out of this year.. It was bound to happen...
Let's go tanking!
We really never had a chance
Bend over & Prepare your butt...
We are getting our butts whooped.
Christ I wanted to be wrong about my 'punching bag' comment earlier in the thread.
Rockets always bring me back down to earth...
Dwight just Dunked the door shut on us
And that is why we wanted Dwight Howard so bad.
Bring on the bad teams!
We're getting absolutely destroyed every which way. We put up a better fight against the defending champs.
I'm still pissed about how Howard got to LA, the league seems to bend over backwards to give them great players.
Kobe older, but sill a d-bag
Kobe's still got it. Triple double tonight.
Well Kobe gave Lin the stare of Death , 5 days later Lin will be cut
Coach Sampson needs to feed our guys some Viagra before the game, we are playing too soft.
At least make one of their players bleed tonight, we have had 3 guys cut.
We just spread our legs and take it.
the lakers cant take a white flag hint?
This team needs to clean house and tank the right way. We need real star players, Harden and Lin are frauds brought here to sell tickets.
We won't be good again until we get that elite star who goes to work every night and plays for pride and not money.
Lakers are sending a statement to the rest of the league. Why did they have to do that today?
I hate the Lakers.
That is all
Dwight 28-13 & 3 blocks...Kobe triple double...what can you do?
Yes!!! No tacos for Lakers fans!!! #reaching
