Game Day: Suns (19-61) @ Rockets (52-28), Sun 4/7/19

Post by Superbone » Sun Apr 07, 2019 11:57 am

Time: 4:00 pm AZ (4:00 pm PT/7:00 pm ET)
Place: Toyota Center, Houston, TX
TV: FSA+/NBATV

Our penultimate game of the season is upon us. We will continue to see the bottom of the bench. Same players are available for the Suns as last game with the possible exception of Holmes(questionable). Only this time, we're playing the Rockets in Houston. I don't expect it to be pretty but I do hope to continue to see positives from JJ and Bender.

Go Suns!!!

The officials have missed a couple of 8-second violations that they should have called on Houston, but at least they didn't fall for Harden hooking the defender and begging for the call.

I hate watching Harden so so much. Eric Gordon also having a strong game so far.

Houston closes the half with a 36-14 run to finish with a 30-point halftime lead.

Game over.

How does James Harden still manage to play 29 minutes in a game that was over by halftime? D'Antoni...

I would have played Melton and Okobo in the 4th together.

Fredette only plays five minutes.
Good.

It's official, a worse W-L record than last season.

Houston with an NBA-record 27 3-pointers.

Gordon and Harden were 13-19 from the arc.

It’s so frustrating how many times Bender should have just dunked the ball. It’s like he doesn’t know he’s 7’1”. Even the Houston announcers were yelling it.

Another horrible lost season. Why would anybody buy season tickets or otherwise support this complete mess of a franchise? I know I won't be giving them another dollar until Saver sells.

Isn't every view of a game giving him money? Or do you stream them from reddit threads?
