The Dream Shake - a Houston Rockets blog: I do not believe what I just saw

I do not believe what I just saw

Rockets up 85-74 at the end of three quarters. After 9 completely boneheaded turnovers by Rafer/Luther, the Rockets proceed to give up 37 points in the 4th quarter alone. And lose.

37!?!?!?!?!? In a row? No -- but it definitely seemed that way from my 10th row vantage point.

Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck Fuck you Rafer fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuckfuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck Fuck you Luther Head fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck Fuck you referee whoever you were that called 5 bullshit fouls on Yao fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuckfuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuckfuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck Seriously, fuck you Rafer - try to play some goddamn defense for once fuck fuck fuck fuck fuckfuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck Fuck you Rick Adelman for not taking Luther Head out of the game when it was clear he was afraid to play fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck Fuck you Bonzi for letting your lazy defense rub off on the rest of the team fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rafer, we're through. No more of this bullshit about "I'm improving" or "I'm becoming more consistent" or "I'm the QB of this team" -- whenever anyone questions me when I say you suck, I will point them to this game. You allowed this to happen on sooo many levels. First of all, you can't shoot. You still can't make layups. You didn't even bother trying to play defense on Andre Miller (which cost Yao at least 2 of his fouls). And Andre Miller is tanking games like he's Vince Carter or something!! You also had 6 turnovers - and every single pass you made was telegraphed. Then you didn't get back on defense. Fuck you.

Yeah, you scored 20 points, but you took 17 shots to get 20. And you had a monster total of 4 assists. FOUR. Or, to translate, a 2/3 ratio of assists to turnovers. That is fucking awful. Yao Ming is 7'5" and he's on your team (though your refusal to pass the ball to people wearing Red makes me think you aren't sure about this). Pass him the damn ball!!! He's too nice to be Keyshawn. But he'll evolve quickly...

And Luther, do not for a second think I am forgetting about you. You played like shit tonight. Yeah, yeah, you hit a few shots early... then you loafed. Then you missed layups like you were Bonzi or something. Then you turned the ball over because you still can't make an entry pass. WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU SHOOTING 20 TIMES?!?!? And 2-11 from deep?!?! WTF?!?! You were scared to shoot when actually open. Scared to pass. Afraid to play defense. Pathetic. Ricky leaving you out there to suffer was embarrassing for us having to watch you play.

Let's look at this quickly:

Rafer -- 7-17 from the floor
Luther -- 6-20 from the floor.

37 shots?!?!?! And, no, not in a row - it just seemed like it.

Meanwhile... Yao -- 8-11 from the floor. ELEVEN!?!?

Why the fuck are you guys shooting more than Yao?!?! ANSWER ME!!!

I thought I couldn't be more upset than I was after the Hornets game. Thanks a lot for proving that theory wrong you assholes! Beatdown #3 in a row... Saturday v. Spurs.

I couldn't have put it any better myself, although I would have used about 200 more "FUCK"'s. Absolutely shameful 4th quarter performance.

Really enjoy the blog guys. Take care, Sean P

Damn, it hurts cause this is the game I realized we got no chance to make the playoffs, half the off-season moves we made were terrible (Scola and Brooks being positive), our point guard is the worst in the league (he only used to be ONE of the worst), and our head coach is retarded.

Damn, just damn.

Rafer's now playing the "we" card... as in "we let up" ... "we stopped doing the things..." ... "we acted like the game was over"

Hey, Rafer - Luis, Yao and Aaron Brooks played great. Shane, too. YOU let up. You stopped playing defense (check that, you never started playing defense). Quit blaming others!

Dude... I couldn't agree more...
Yao got injuried on Thanksgiving night and he keeps playing, never give up, Adelman's stupid strategy led the team to the big lead loss and he blamed Yao. If my memories were correct, T-Mac had confrontations with Adelman now Yao who said:"Fuck his mother" in Chinese on Chinese Central Television. He and Mac has good attitudes, and wow they are just pissed at Ricky boy.
