Pre-Game:

Quote:
Do I have to watch


Quote:
Hoping for a dead cat bounce, but I'm not holding my breath.

MDA and Dork Elvis should be shown the door immediately if we lose.


Quote:
i think this is the last win of the season, but I do think the series goes six.


Quote:
W

Beginning of Clutch City 2.0



Quote:
Rockets wearing the black uniforms for the seasons funeral.



Quote:
Why bother, don’t even want this to carry on. Just get it over with.


Quote:
This series probably won't get extended. They can't mess around and not have a fresh Scott Foster, Brothers, Marc Davis, and the other usual suspects not out there to rig every game for the Lakers in the WCF, because the Clippers could actually win the series and ruin the entire script.


Quote:
I really hope we win, but I can't remember the last time I cared less about a playoff game. What a bummer.


Quote:
Rockets win in a blowout.

122 - 96


Quote:
just don't let it end tonight.

PLEASE BASKETBALL GODS.

NOT

TONIGHT


First Quarter:


Quote:
****ing great, first possession a Russ turnover.


Quote:
Tucker with an air all three and two missed layups. Getting ready to turn this trash off


Quote:
No words. Total embarrassment. Team has zero pride.


Quote:
pain.


Quote:
Just the fear of being blocked by Lebron and AD is messing with their shots. Hahahaha


Quote:
This what I’m talking about. It’s not the size that’s the issue, it’s the skills. You can’t keep missing layups around the basket.


Quote:
1,2,3, Cancun


Quote:
What an embarrassing basketball team. Such a pathetic end to the season.


Quote:
How many times has Lebron blocked Westbrook this series damn


Quote:
You guys are actually watching the game?

Joke is on you


Quote:
what does westbrook have to do to get a call
Quote:
wear a lakers jersey


Quote:
Game is over when it started


We suck.


Quote:
This hurts


Quote:
Mentally midget


Totally collapsed


Quote:
This is some (bleep). Our offense is out of whaxk. Our defense is non-existent. The refs are swallowing their whistles. Sad to say, but I can't bear to watch this much longer


Second Quarter:


Quote:
We're finally playing.


Quote:
Color me impressed. Down to a 7 point deficit. Let’s see if we can keep chipping away.


Quote:
we good again? never doubted the boys!

swag champs!



Quote:
Dear god...Harden got blocked by Caruso smh


Quote:
Caruso literally shutting down Harden. He did really good last game too on Harden. Kept him to just a couple makes.


Quote:
Caruso looks like a boiled egg


Quote:
Caruso, Freaking Caruson, has blocked Harden 3x this series.


Quote:
How could you not challenge that as a hostile act? WTF?


Quote:
Lakers have made so many (bleep) low percentage shots this series.


Quote:
Danny green you twat.


Quote:
Tuckers is just killing us in big games. He's been a zero.


Quote:
Refs straight up cheating now. Tucker’s foot wasn’t anywhere close to the line.


Quote:
Come on, guys. Get it under 10 by the half. If the refs let us. Doesn’t look like it.


Quote:
Rivers is all trash


Quote:
Even Marc Jackson can see mclemore should get more minutes. How can mike not see you have to surround harden with any legit shooter on your roster


Third Quarter:

Quote:
So the Lakers have become GSW with their 3 ball. Of course.


Quote:
Great, the Lakers have turned into the Warriors.


Quote:
Wasn’t this ****ing Lakers team complete trash from beyond the arc all year and bubble?


Quote:
every possession that ends up with Russ or EG with the ball makes me groan and sigh


Quote:
****! we suck again.


Quote:
Yeah that might do it.


Quote:
They can pretty much crank up their D at will. They know what we’re doing


Quote:
Westbrook is so (bleep) awful, the least likeable Rockets after Danuel House.
And (bleep) Covington can't make one single play on the offensive end, awful.


Quote:
Sucks. I wouldn't mind seeing one of our players just completely punch the living shat out of a random ref just for my entertainment purpose. I'd watch this game end with the biggest smile on my face.


Quote:
I just don't understand what happened to pre-covid Westbrook.

We will never win anything with this version.


Quote:
Game 3 and 4 has me emotionally dead with the Rockets. Its whatever


Quote:
Man this is depressing.


Quote:
This team still has no heart or energy. I thought Westbrook would change that. Season over. Don't let the door hit you on the way out Dantoni.


Quote:
If the Lakers continue flying around on defense like this, I’m not sure anyone will beat them.


Quote:
That is a block dude. Refs will make sure we’re buried.


Quote:
The NBA is such garbage.


Quote:
Can someone please kill me? kthx


Quote:
35 years of watching Rockets basketball.

Truly embarrassing.

Fertitta and Morey will go out tomorrow and put up some (bleep) about how they are going to reevaluate the whole roster and how they will get better for next year's championship run. Gulp...


Quote:
I'm tired of this double standard...fouls are called differently on Harden then other players.


Quote:
Haven't watched since game 3, but this sounds like another humiliating playoff exit where we never even gave ourselves a chance to compete, much less win.


Quote:
i just hope we manage to injure a laker


Quote:
Brutal. Just brutal.


Quote:
too late to call the season off due to carona virus ?


Quote:
I never have gotten so mad...at a shot going in. When I see Harden hit an effortless mid range...it's just more frustrating than anything because it's just so easy for him.


Quote:
It's not Harden's fault.

It's not because we are missing House.

Lakers just have the better players and the better coach.


Quote:
It's really fun watching professional basketball players hit open 3's. Unfortunately it's never the Rockets.


Quote:
I hate the Lakers


Quote:
It's embarrassing how we are exiting the playoffs. Slap in the face to Houston period. Heads should roll.


Quote:
I hate this team more than words can describe. Blow everything up. Trade everyone but Harden. Fire the GM, the coach, the trainer, and every single one of the assistants. We need a complete rehaul and a new culture.

This is unforgivable, inexcusable. Pathetic. Pathetic. Pathetic. Pathetic.


Fourth Quarter:

Quote:
Of course these scrub role players can get hot for a single game.


Quote:
Morey's overrated analytics on full display. You get below average volume shooters, with no motion offense and except them to turn into Klay and Steph when it matters. Other teams say there are other ways to win than just shooting 3s but if you want to play that game, we have better shooters and can get our players quality shots. The whole point of small ball was to be able to shoot close to 50 threes against bigger opposition, now we cant even get 30 up, and guys that have not played the mid range all season are being asked to flash to the basket and missing wide open layups. Just get ready for rebuild and reset. Colossal failure top down.


Quote:
Currently wishing sports would have stayed canceled. Houston sports is brutal right now.


Quote:
They are bigger and can shoot better


Quote:
With thise series, we just let Lakers discover that their small ball lineup is actually better than the linup that they were using all year.


Quote:
Harden is our only player playing like he wants to win...if ANY ONE COMPLAINS THIS IS HARDEN FAULT, THEY CAN STICK THEIR FOOT UP THEIR BEHIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Quote:
Actually cannot wait for D’Antoni to be gone. Credit to the way that he has evolved offense in the NBA, but other coaches have already learned how to design that into their offense. D’Antoni meanwhile after losing three games straight has not made a single adjustment. I miss Rick Adelman.


Quote:
At least we are beating LA in baseball tonight.... NOT


Quote:
They got better every game and we got worse every game. We didn't do jack for adjustments.


Quote:
We’re only down by 29. We can make a run.


Quote:
I hope they yell at each other in the locker room again. That worked out well after last game.


Quote:
In all those years that we lost to the Worriers, at the very least we were competitive, even being up 20 points on them during games.

This is utter garbage. These players are not deserving on wearing Rockets unis.


Quote:
Yep.

I hate lebron
Quote:
I hate the lakers


Quote:
I prefer blowout elimination losses to buzzer-beating elimination losses. I prefer to feel dead inside than to be heartbroken. Lol


Quote:
Any scrubs can get hot for a game.


Quote:
**** dude I just realized the only masks I have are rockets ones.


Quote:
**** this team, owner, and gm


Quote:
I wanna slap the 16 hair follicles outta Caruso's ugly ass


Quote:
The broadcast is giving MDA his eulogy. Can they do Morey next?


Quote:
Russ should have had some of this fight 2 hours ago maybe we wouldn't be down 30.


Quote:
Why are you responding to me? My point is that the NBA was never going to let the Rockets advance when 25% of their money depends on them not advancing. How is that related to House?

Please stay on topic. China is a terrible influence on good competition. That is all.


Quote:
Did we miss 27 layups yet?


Quote:
Honest talk, this shouldn't be an elimination game. We had multiple games we should have won but got just barely outplayed.


Quote:
What an awful series.

None of the games were close in the end. Zero clutch time


Quote:
Rondos (bleep) ass brother.


Quote:
This is worse than Game 6


Quote:
Dwight Howard in to earn his ring with garbage time minutes. (bleep)!


Quote:
Harden is thinking about strip clubs. Are they open? Can I get a private dance? Do I have to wear a mask?


Quote:
Such a depressing time for Houston sports fans. Man. Jamison it is again.


Quote:
Capela and Chris P laughing out loud!

China laughing out loud


Quote:
Im calling Clippers in 5. Clippers are very much than the Lakers.


Post Game:

Quote:
Am I allowed to hate Austin Rivers again?


Quote:
Fire Morey immediately.


Quote:
did westbrook really say "you better double me" with his team down 29 LMFAO


Quote:
We never got this owned when we played the Warriors the last previous years. Say what you will about CP3, we didn't get punked like this when we had him during the playoffs.


Quote:
they played small ball better than we did lol.


Quote:
This is the way the season ends
not with a bang but with a whimper


Quote:
Maybe the entire team was protesting something by refusing to play.

More QFTOS from ClutchFans:

Pre-game:
Quote:
How can the #Rockets free James Harden in Game 5?

D’Antoni: “Obviously we got to speed up. ...There are times he’s got to be a bit more selfish.”

Quote:
So the answer is we've got to speed things up? LOL

Yea...I'll be doing that on my DVR with the fast forward button I'm pretty sure

Quote:
Rockets wearing the black uniforms for the seasons funeral.

Quote:
Why bother, don’t even want this to carry on. Just get it over with.

Quote:
If the rockets have any heart, any balls, any manhood , any goddam pride , they will come out with a win..

You just can’t lose 4 in a row..
save us the humiliation and just forfeit if you’re gonna come out like crap again.


First Half:
Quote:
Blow it up time for a culture change this is just sad

Quote:

No words. Total embarrassment. Team has zero pride.

Quote:
Just the fear of being blocked by Lebron and AD is messing with their shots. Hahahaha

Quote:
2 minutes in and I can already tell you that it’s over.

Quote:
Quitters gonna quit.

Quote:
Welp. Think the only chance we have is them injuring themselves during time out celebrations.

Quote:
Lol Lebron is making us look like an under 15s team

Quote:

You guys are actually watching the game?

Joke is on you

Quote:
Two mvps getting destroyed by an old ass man. Blow it up

Quote:
Why does lebron have more energy then harden. Who needs to win this game?

Quote:
Lebron is owning them. Simple as that

Quote:
Wow. and Dan Tony he was sure we would come out with "spirit"

Quote:
Tyson Chandler IS available.

Quote:
honestly the Lakers could play Lebron and 4 D-league players and beat the Rockets. He is built to beat smallball

he is THE ultimate smallball killer.

Quote:
Pathetic group of guys.

It’s like varsity vs. jv out there.

Just embarrassing.

Quote:
I would really like to break something.

Quote:
Lol AD hasn't even taken a shot and they are killing us


Second Half

Quote:
Elimination James strikes again.

Quote:
Awesome...we taught the Lakers how to go small and go for the 3-ball

Quote:
This is cruel & unusual punishment at this point... just ****ing call it a game

Quote:
Westbrook is an overpaid Eremy Lin

Quote:
Dear god...Harden got blocked by Caruso smh

Quote:
Caruso looks like a boiled egg

Quote:
You can complain about Lebron love all you want.... the reality is this dude is dominating this series. He’s probably been the best player in the playoffs so far.
he’s putting up like 26/10/9 on solid shooting with exceptional defense.

Quote:
Worst of all I’m out of cold beer

Quote:
EG airballed so bad they thought it went in...lmao

Quote:
Im in that acceptance phase now..... and by that I mean im accepting I have to buy a new TV after punching it too many times.

Quote:
I’m behind watching on dvr. I’m in the 2nd quarter. Rockets making a run down 7. I feel this gonna be a great game

That's big talk when in game 2 they were down 8 with 30 seconds left and let the Lakers run out the clock without fouling.

They just gave up and didn't even try lol

Ahhh....such delicious tears. They knew they were done in the first 5 mins.

This begs the question. So why are people salavating over D’Antoni?

The man’s time has passed if you ask me. But I guess he’ll get a shot somewhere anyway.

Bye.

That's always been MDA's key adjustment.

Also, fans can't be complaining about the refs when you are down 20-30 and about to lose your fourth straight. That's just a bad look.

Thank You. Big ups to RG for doing the other Quotes too, but I’m glad you got some Clutchfans in there before the series ended. Reddit fans are mild compared to those %#^*%^%#*+*#! 🤣

Trust me those (bleep)-heads are complaining. Go on Clutchfans. Ass hats defend the Astros. Seriously, they think the Astros were saints and refused to snitch on other teams that are cheating.

i love it <3

still kind of hilarious there were actual real life Laker fans who thought we were going to lose after game 1 of both series. They're nearly as bad or worse then these guys.

That was so perfect it was Rondo's brother that really made Russ go into full on roid rage because I thought it was Rondo at first
