What is life right now? Who is driving this bus?
Your Houston Rockets have won FOUR games in a row and are 4-3 leaving them over .500 for the first time in FOUR seasons. Game 7 of 82 what we learned: Houston Rockets edition.
THIS SHIT MEANS SOMETHING TO ME, MAN.
Where to even start? Let’s dig.
Jalen Fucking Green has beaten the inefficiency allegations going 11-15 from the field, scoring 28 in 21 minutes with some crazy speed and that confidence to back it up. Is he the new Laker Killer? All I’m saying is history seems to always repeat itself.
Al-P did his usual 20 points with a strange twist this time. He went coast to coast multiple times? Why, tonight, of all nights was the game where every players confidence was flowing?
Was it because the quarterback of the future, CJ Stroud being in the building? Martin Maldonaldo? Who knows.
To put it simply, it feels good to FEEL this.
Watching every minute of garbage time basketball over the past three games thinking to myself “Wow, we aren’t on the receiving end of this for once? What a life.”
Dillon Brooks half-way backed up his talk against LeBron, but ending with the W meant more than any silly one-sided banter.
Besides, what do you want Dillon Brooks to say anyway? He is asked questions on matchups by the media and of course isn’t going to back down from it. Do you think he is going to sit there and say “I will get cooked by LeBron and our team will lose by 40.”
Come on, be serious.
“I will play to win and hold my matchup.” is the least he should say.
I don’t give a shit if it’s God on the other side of that court, I want a teammate who isn’t afraid of a single soul on that 92 feet of wood, and dammit that is what we have. I could care less if Dillon Brooks only scored 5 points and had 4 fouls.
The squad won by 34 and this should be celebrated more than any national coverage or social media post proving Dillon Brooks right.
What we learned:
Jalen Green is HIM when the confidence begins to shift in to overdrive.
Fred VanVleet is dishing the rock like his life is depending on it. Wait, it kind of is. Never mind.
Jae’Sean Tate had a hell of a game. I like this position he has taken on our rotation. Always be ready when your name is called.
What a night. Your Houston Rockets have won four games in a row. Enjoy this feeling.
The squad will be taking on the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday for the beginning of our In-Season Tournament run.
Cool court and new uniforms to compliment this winstreak! Woooooooo!
See y’all then.
