Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta says Game 6 loss to Warriors at home was ‘unacceptable’
Houston Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta says the Game 6 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Friday at home was “unacceptable.”
The Rockets lost by a final score of 118-113. They were outscored by 10 points in the fourth quarter and Fertitta was not a happy camper while speaking to reporters postgame.
“Hell yes it’s more painful,” Fertitta said. “This was not fun. I guarantee you James (Harden) and Chris (Paul) and our team is very upset right now. They kicked our ass on our home-court. They beat us by 10 points in the fourth quarter. It’s unacceptable. We just have to be better. I know that we’re going to rise to the occasion and our time is going to come.”
The Rockets have now lost to the Warriors in back-to-back postseasons. With Kevin Durant out for Game 6 and Chris Paul healthy, Houston had a great chance to atone for happened in the 2018 Western Conference Finals. The Rockets lost to the Warriors in seven games in the 2018 WCF.
The Rockets, though, didn’t take advantage of their opportunity and now the franchise faces major questions moving forward. Harden, Paul and Clint Capela are making a lot of money combined, leaving Fertitta with his hands tied behind his back in terms of making the team better around them.
It’s going to be an interesting summer in Houston, that’s for sure. The Rockets could make some changes after falling short of their goal.
