Houston (CBS Houston)– The Houston Rockets shot 35.2 percent as they fell to the Phoenix Suns 97-88, Wednesday night.
If you fast forward to the 3:30 mark, you’ll see a defeated Dwight Howard answer the question, “Are you disappointed with the effort?”
“It was piss-poor effort out there on defense and offense,” Howard said. “The ball stuck tonight and we didn’t move it and we can’t win that way.”
I appreciate Howard’s honest frustration as he ended the night with 15 points and 18 rebounds in their second straight loss.
“It had nothing to do with us missing shots,” Howard said. “They just played harder than us. It had nothing to do with the offensive game. They just played hard. We know what we (have to) do. It’s gotta be important for guys to come out and play the same way every night.”
