The Rockets incredible 3-point shooting failed them at the worst time — the middle of Game 7. Twitter won’t let them forget it.
The Houston Rockets missed 27 consecutive 3s, which should give fans pause for a second.
That stretch was so horrible that it will be the single most remembered aspect of Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals. Houston’s shooting woes stood in contrast to the Golden State Warriors hot-shooting in the third quarter and that’s when the game turned around.
No basketball fan has ever seen a NBA team miss 27 straight 3-pointers, because it was a playoff record, one the Rockets did not want to be part of.
