Daryl Morey: Rockets missing 27 straight 3-pointers vs Warriors ‘was like the karma flipping'


Do you remember what happened in Game 6 of the 2015 Western Conference Semifinals?

In case you forgot -- the Clippers led the Rockets by 19 points with a little over two minutes left in the third quarter. The Rockets ended up winning by 12 points and then won Game 7 back in Houston (before falling to the Warriors in the West Finals).

Do you remember what happened in Game 7 of the 2018 Western Conference Finals?

In case you forgot -- the Rockets missed 27 straight 3-pointers and lost at home to the Warriors.

"Basically, this year's 0-for-27 was a makeup for Corey Brewer, Josh Smith and Terrence Jones hitting 3s against the Clippers," Houston GM Daryl Morey said on The Bill Simmons Podcast. "It was like the karma flipping.

"The three worst shooters in NBA history are (Charles) Barkley, Brewer and Josh Smith. We had two of 'em."

In the fourth quarter vs the Clippers, Smith went 3-for-4 from deep and Brewer went 2-for-3.

Smith's career 3-point percentage -- 28.5.

Brewer's career 3-point percentage -- 28.3.

Barkley's career 3-point percentage -- 26.6.

Good stuff.
