The Rockets’ impressive Christmas Day win over the Spurs was quickly dampened by a road loss to the lowly Pelicans on Saturday night in which Houston (now 16-16) made some critical mistakes.

“We have to solve our core issues. There’s a reason why this team is so up and down,” the coach said. “We come out here tonight, things aren’t easy, things don’t go our way and we turn into the ugly Rockets. It’s frustrating for me. It’s frustrating for all of us.”
He ended by saying, “Winning is the only priority.” Watch the video above.
