After back-to-back losses to the Warriors and Trail Blazers put the Rockets below .500 and into ninth place in the West, interim head coach J.B. Bickerstaff did not hold back on his team.
"We're broken," Bickerstaff said, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle. "Right now, we're a broken team. We all can use this break to figure out how we're going to impact change. If we don't want to impact change, we need to be made aware of that, too, and we'll go in a different direction."
Jason Terry, the most veteran player on the Rockets, was also heard saying, "No chemistry with that group ... horrible," on his his way to the locker room following Houston's Wednesday defeat.
After the game, James Harden and Dwight Howard reportedly met with Bickerstaff and general manager Daryl Morey for a discussion that went "long into the night."
The Rockets have been one of the NBA's biggest disappointments after making it to the Western Conference finals last year, where the fell to Golden State in five games.
The Warriors swept the season series from their playoff rival on Tuesday, winning by a final score of 123-110.
