FYI I’ve been told the second half of the game thread often doesn’t show up when viewing these posts in the Twitter app’s reader mode.

Today’s Opponent Game Thread Host: The Dream Shake.

Good evening, everybody.
Let’s end this series. Go Rockets.

What else
does Utah have to throw at us? From what I’ve seen so far Quin is a smart coach. This is the only playoff opponent in my 20+ years of watching Rockets games that I don’t hate. Not an exaggeration. That being said let’s embarass the shit out of these guys

These empty seats are such an embarrassment.
Posted by chriscjackson on May 8, 2018 | 7:05 PM

Is this a regular season game?
What is up with these empty seats?
Posted by loydyboi on May 8, 2018 | 7:07 PM

Can we borrow some of the fans back at utah?
Atleast they’d show up and be loud
Posted by loydyboi on May 8, 2018 | 7:14 PM

Damn we can’t hit anything
Posted by BrianHoyerHOF on May 8, 2018 | 7:17 PM

Ugly ass 1Q.
I’ll take being up five.
Posted by chriscjackson on May 8, 2018 | 7:27 PM

I blame the Jazz.
Rockets would love to play a free flowing game.

Burks is hella aggressive
Posted by Michael 2k on May 8, 2018 | 7:34 PM

I’m always shocked when that POS looking 3pter goes in.
Posted by Xiane on May 8, 2018 | 7:35 PM

Burks is killing us.
Posted by KLP713 on May 8, 2018 | 7:37 PM

One thing I’ve learned this series that I didn’t know before
Gobert’s hands are really bad. Like, end of rookie year Capela bad
Posted by Michael 2k on May 8, 2018 | 7:44 PM

Asik even.
Posted by Bobbythegreat on May 8, 2018 | 7:45 PM


What kind of lazy ass game are we playing?
This is insulting
Posted by gameace777 on May 8, 2018 | 7:49 PM

MDA are you a moron?! call fucking time out christ
what an idiot
Posted by WattYouTalknBoutWillis on May 8, 2018 | 7:49 PM

Harden looking like absolute trash
Everyone blowing by him on D and careless passes on O
Posted by ricefarmer369 on May 8, 2018 | 7:53 PM

when Mitchell sees Harden on him 1on1, ,he sees BBQ chicken
Posted by Patman987 on May 8, 2018 | 7:54 PM

His D hasn’t been bad
but he should never be on Mitchell. He’s too quick for a guy like Harden to defend. His defense on Ingles has been great though, and he’s moving his feet!
Posted by Michael 2k on May 8, 2018 | 7:58 PM

Sloppy game all around.
We’re up because the Jazz are playing sloppier.
Posted by The Boyce on May 8, 2018 | 8:14 PM

Heh, Harden fouled Mitchell on
that drive. Slapped his elbow, no call. Jazz fans are going to be lit.
Posted by Bobbythegreat on May 8, 2018 | 8:25 PM

Or Mitchell himself might have another unfortunate remark.
Posted by Xiane on May 8, 2018 | 8:25 PM

Wow, we are playing like absolute garbage
Posted by BrianHoyerHOF on May 8, 2018 | 8:27 PM

Fucking hell
This is COMPLETE shit. Harden misses ANOTHER wide open 3. Like what the fuck
Posted by Relocated_astro on May 8, 2018 | 8:28 PM

I think the Rockets might actually lose this one.
They can’t hit shots for shit and they are being lazy as fuck. The Jazz are still a good NBA team, you have to put forth SOME effort.
Posted by Bobbythegreat on May 8, 2018 | 8:28 PM


reggie miller is literally orgasming over donovan mitchell. He cant stand it. Just waiting for a made shot
Posted by martymouse on May 8, 2018 | 8:29 PM

Mitchell hits the most bullshit shots
Posted by BrianHoyerHOF on May 8, 2018 | 8:32 PM

Mitchell is flat out dicking this pathetic fucking team right now
Posted by Relocated_astro on May 8, 2018 | 8:34 PM

Man
It’d be nice if Harden could play as well as Mitchell. LOL
Posted by Relocated_astro on May 8, 2018 | 8:39 PM

What’s really bad is that Mitchell shit talked Harden
and today Harden is letting Mitchell completely outplay him.
Posted by Bobbythegreat on May 8, 2018 | 8:39 PM

We have the worst home crowd in the NBA
And it’s not really close.
Posted by TexansRocketsStros on May 8, 2018 | 8:40 PM

I’ve heard a more rowdy crowd at FUNERALS.
Posted by OneManBlitz on May 8, 2018 | 8:40 PM

It’s not a coincidence we’re not as sharp at home
we feed off of energy and our crowd is fucking dead
Posted by goingforthecorner on May 8, 2018 | 8:43 PM

Crowds feed off of energy and
the team doesn’t give a fuck.
Posted by Bobbythegreat on May 8, 2018 | 8:45 PM

Damn Gobert is long
Posted by Orange88 on May 8, 2018 | 8:54 PM

Can we stop guarding Mitchell with Harden at all costs?
Posted by BrianHoyerHOF on May 8, 2018 | 8:56 PM

Why can’t Gordon make his 3s like Burks? Why the fuck do I even have to type that question out?
Posted by Relocated_astro on May 8, 2018 | 8:58 PM


Mitchell hurt
Posted by Bobbythegreat on May 8, 2018 | 8:58 PM

He should have about five months to recover.
Posted by The Boyce on May 8, 2018 | 9:01 PM

It looks like he’s out
for the season.
Posted by Bobbythegreat on May 8, 2018 | 9:04 PM

Goodnight Jazz.
Oh Fuck You Snyder.
Posted by Xiane on May 8, 2018 | 9:11 PM

Shhhh.
Just close your eyes. It’ll all be over soon.
Posted by The Boyce on May 8, 2018 | 9:14 PM

>tfw ghosts of Jazz series past being exorcised RIGHT FUCKING NOW

will our attendance not be embarrassing for once?

Sweet_Baby_Cheesus
Don’t understand why people don’t wanna show up for the games, and those that do don’t want to put on the shirts.

manethelion
I’m cool with a Jae-centric offense

Raethwood
Fuckin gobert and his gogo gadget arms

dustbuddii

L81ics

Catch_These_Hands94
All series we have let Burks get lay ups at will. It’s infuriating

blakay_47
Of course you love Ingles Reggie, cuz he a bitch like you


ForIvadell
Lmao jazz totally ignoring tucker and he fucks em up for 8 straight

at_work_safe_acct
I don’t blame them for not wanting to go back to Utah, it is a beautiful place but it is filled with Jazz fans.

Visualizer
Gobert worthless lol.

TokubetsuHabu
Gobert gets chills down his spine even when he just looks at Clint lmao

Catch_These_Hands94
Harden dude. Fucking stop dude. Like a walking turnover right now

jm_v
fuck this. We should be running away with the lead right now…

DeerOnTheRocks
Lmao Gobert thinks he is Clint Capela

Catch_These_Hands94
Harden is fucking garbage right now. No sugar coating. No excuses. Every one is tired. It’s the fucking playoffs.

TheHeardTheorem
Gobert is as bad offensively as he is good defensively

WussupWiddit
We have the lamest home court “advantage” of any playoff team that I have ever watched. Disgraceful.

MugiMartin
I like that the Jazz aren’t laying down. All these people putting the Rockets into the next series are thinking way ahead.

-fearthebeard-
ITS STARTING TO RAIN IN HOUSTON

texanHP4L
What an end to the half!!!!!!


nonetimeaccount

Catch_These_Hands94
Goddamn embarrassing

Xiomaraff
What the fuck is this shit ?

kittymonster99
chill guys, it’s the jazz


chandlerw88
Donovan Mitchell is so nasty. The NBA is in a good place.

manethelion
Seriously, I love that kid. He’s going to be a force in this league.

chandlerw88
I love his game and tenacity. Dude is a ball player

jm_v
We are getting rooked…

j3i
And now Mitchell is on fire. Great job MDA

nonetimeaccount
mitchell makes some incredible shots that nobody has any business making. he lets these scoops go from the weirdest angles and horrible positions but he makes them.

TokubetsuHabu
He’s really nice with it, man. I’m of the belief he will be a top 10 player in 3 years.

MeagerCycle
I have to say I like how aggressive Mitchell is

kittymonster99
ohhh the jizz went on a mini-run. I’m soooo scared

121910
Stop fking Donovan Mitchell plz omg

Catch_These_Hands94
Pathetic that we can’t guard this dude

chandlerw88
Mitchell is doing what harden should be doing.

jm_v
Pretty sure Mitchell has been getting more star calls than Harden this game

turtlechef
fucking mitchell

jm_v
We really let a rookie drop 22 on us… intensity has to pick it the fuck up…

manethelion
Major props to Don. What a quarter.

MugiMartin
Goddamn, I hate how good Mitchell is.

j3i
Amazing quarter from Mitchell. Utah making their best shot now.

jm_v
We can not let this shit go back to Utah. Team and that bitch ass lower bowl better wake the fuck up


EnterAdman
Mike, maybe act like you’ve got some brain cells and play our actual center?

IHaveNussingToSay
Excellent start to the 4th…

postentrypass
No Rubio, no Exum for the Jazz. Guess it evens out, no Harden for the Rockets.
These are the big moments when Hakeem asserted himself. Right now, honestly, much of the post-season criticism directed at Harden is deserved.

2Talloperator
GERALD “HOUSTON AS FUCK” GREEN

Lotus_
SHOW THEM WHO THE DUNK CHAMPION IS.

IHaveNussingToSay
Burkes’ janky ass 3 has no business going in

IveAlreadyWon
I mean, fuck Mitchell, and all, but I would rather him be in the game than injured. I hate injuries.

Smashing8s9sAnd10s
With Mitchell done, there’s no way the Rockets should lose this. Blow them out now.

TokubetsuHabu
Ahwww man, that really sucks for Mitchell. Not like this

armanigracia
Mitchell is my ROY, much respect.

EnterAdman
I’m so ready to be done with the Jazz. Ugly ass team, ugly ass jersey, ugly ass fans, ugly ass jerseys.

DeerOnTheRocks
If the Jazz could get Whiteside they would be a lot better. Needs to ditch Gogurt

gmann2k10
I’m sorry but the timing of that splitscreen with Mitchell on a cart was hilarious.

DoctorStark7
BYE BYE UTAH

NoFatChiqs
Mitchel is out for the rest of the season I hear
