This Video Of The Rockets’ 27 Straight Missed 3’s In Game 7 Hurt My Eyes
Thoughts and prayers go out to Houston Rockets fans, who saw their team’s sizable Game 7 lead disintegrate into a flurry of historic shooting ineptitude. The Rockets set a record for missing 27 straight 3-pointers from the second to the fourth quarter in their loss to the Golden State Warriors in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals. That’s the most consecutive misses from deep in a playoff game in NBA history. There hasn’t been a cold streak that extensive since my winter of 2006 when word got around that I shit my pants.
For a team who won a league-best 65 games this season by implementing a ‘live by the three, die by the three’ mentality, it was difficult to watch them self-destruct during the biggest game of their collective lives.
Pretty hard to fathom this shot chart was generated by a team who set a record for most three pointers made in a season.
The Rockets ended the game shooting a dismal 7-44 from three point range.
Check out all 27 misses in the infuriating clip below. WHY DO I FEEL LIKE ONE OF THESE WILL EVENTUALLY GO IN!?
Here are a few rich Twitter memes referencing the Rockets’ historically bad night from deep.
