Silas ejected, Rockets suffer worst loss of season 119-108 to Pelicans

Matthew Hinton - Associated Press

Tonight was a night where the mixture of bad effort, frustration, and bad luck all foiled over as the Rockets lost to the New Orleans Pelicans 119-108. The game overall was the epitome of frustration for the Rockets fan base because the Pelicans were missing key players, due to injury, and yet the team couldn’t take advantage. The Rockets, in typical fashion this season, lose to a short handed team in a blowout. These type of losses fall on not just the players, but fall on the coaches, management, and the organization as a whole.

On the fringe of giving up

This Rockets team definitely did not have it tonight but when you come out flat and lack the urgency to come out fast, then losing this way could certainly lead to horrible outcomes. We got another poor shooting game from Jalen Green as he shot 33% from the field in 15 shots as Jabari Smith Jr shot 30% on 10 shots. The only positive play came from a KJ Martin tonight. KJ shot a perfect 7/7 from the field with 16 points. Despite the overall outcome, KJ was our lone bright spot with his constant hustle.

Could this be the last we see of Stephen Silas as coach?

Coach Stephen Silas was ejected at the end of the first quarter when his team was down 45-22. Granted, he did have legit gripes in terms of how the game had been officiated at that point but the Rockets shouldn’t have dug themselves such a deep hole going into the 2nd. Unfortunately, for Coach Silas, frustration has reached a boiling point. Not even just for this game, but for the season as a whole, could be seen visibly as he was escorted off the court. If this is the last time we do see him, we will find out quick as the Rockets turn around to play the Utah Jazz tomorrow night at Toyota Center.

Simply a bad game BUT we move on

All that can be stated is that the Rockets do not have much time to dwell on this loss. It was downright horrible and a bad watch if we’re being honest. However, since we have a quick turnaround, there’s hope for tomorrow and a possible victory to get the Rockets off the schneid. Let’s shake this loss and hope the Rockets come out with energy and give the home crowd something to cheer about.
