Houston Rockets players and coaches react to another devastating loss that sends them plummeting from playoff seeds and under .500 again!

Following the loss to the Portland Trail Blazers last night the Houston Rockets players, coaches, GM and fans all voiced their opinions and it wasn’t pretty!

Perhaps most startling was Jason Terry‘s comments as he’s known for being a solid veteran presence with solid leadership skills. But, when he’s making comments like the tweet below there isn’t much room for optimism:

Jason Terry walks through the media room on way to the locker room. "No chemistry with that group. F****** horrible." #CSNBlazers #ripcity

Sometimes tweets like this are questioned but Calvin Murphy confirmed the authenticity of it:

@calvinwatkins Calvin man we appreciate when you covered the Cowboys

While Kevin McHale was a guest on the set of the NBA Game Night this week he made sure to use the time to say he was shocked by his firing so early in the season. His assistant J.B. Bickerstaff who moved in as McHale’s interim replacement sure wasn’t waxing poetic following the loss as Real GM reported today:

We’re broken, “It’s that simple. We’re a broken team, and we all need to use this break to figure out how we’re going to impact change. If we don’t want to impact change, then we need to be made aware of that, too, and we’ll go in a different direction. We can’t continue to go out and play this way. It’s easy to see it’s a fragmented bunch. You can’t win that way.” – Bickerstaff

As for the stars of the team Dwight Howard is dealing with what appears to be a renewed trade rumors today his frustration is palpable in his comments following the loss Wednesday to the Blazers:
