@  slick shoes : (11 December 2018 - 04:18 PM) CP's remark about a 7 game series sounds a little entitled as well at this point. Gotta make the playoffs to have a series, my man.
@  Mario Peña : (11 December 2018 - 03:22 PM) Yeah I wonder how hungry the team was this past summer relative to two summers ago. That Bahamas “workout” photo or wherever it was from looked more like a team thinking it would coast to 60 plus wins again.
@  Losthief : (10 December 2018 - 03:44 AM) p.s. the mirrors to our last run to the western finals is worrisome, we sucked the next year as well, then fired Mchale and jettisoned Howard.
@  Losthief : (10 December 2018 - 03:43 AM) @redfaithful y you gotta say things that hurt me...not that they are not true...just painful haha.
@  redfaithful : (09 December 2018 - 01:33 PM) If the Suns weren't in rebuild mode, the Rockets would be (rightfully) last in the west
@  thejohnnygold : (08 December 2018 - 06:55 PM) Meanwhile, Robert Covington, Marcus Morris, and Montrezl Harrell are out there being the exact players we need...for other teams.
@  slick shoes : (07 December 2018 - 01:44 PM) Who are we as a team any more? I don't think everyone has a firm grasp on their role within the system.
@  Mario Peña : (07 December 2018 - 06:46 AM) These Rockets will be lucky to make the playoffs and if they do getting to the second round would be something. It’s time to consider maintenance for CP3 instead of overplaying him.
@  slick shoes : (04 December 2018 - 03:33 PM) Gotta play Brandon Knight a few games before then.
@  thejohnnygold : (04 December 2018 - 03:28 PM) I have a hunch that Dec. 15th can't get here soon enough for Morey.
@  DenverRocket : (27 November 2018 - 01:22 AM) Jeez, our rotation is screwed without CP3. MCW seems to have forgotten how to play basketball. Hopefully, Brandon Knight can get fit soon.
@  Losthief : (22 November 2018 - 11:42 AM) depends on what we have to give up. He be a good fit in our system tho
@  slick shoes : (20 November 2018 - 06:56 PM) Any of you guys intrigued by Otto Porter Jr.? I know he has a pretty steep price tag but we were going to give up four first rounders and two players anyway....
@  redfaithful : (19 November 2018 - 09:26 AM) Crazy season: the difference in the L column between the first in the west (4 teams with 5 Ls) to #11-13 (3 teams with 8 Ls) is only 3...
@  Mario Peña : (16 November 2018 - 02:36 AM) That’s cool!
@  DenverRocket : (15 November 2018 - 10:46 PM) It was awesome. My boys loved it, got Clint's autograph, and lots of high fives by the tunnel.
@  Mario Peña : (14 November 2018 - 09:48 PM) I’m sure that was a great game to see live!
@  slick shoes : (14 November 2018 - 01:30 PM) I believe Talib took the jersey home. Looks like the ball is starting to finally go in for the boys in red. Couldn't have come soon enough.
@  DenverRocket : (14 November 2018 - 06:48 AM) Just back from Pepsi Center. James simply took over and put them away in the second half.He put on the show for Von Miller, Talib and I believe Todd Gurley. One of them got his jersey at the end ;-)
@  Mario Peña : (12 November 2018 - 10:33 AM) Looks like Melo is gone.

Certainly more of a challenging matchup at most positions. The matchup at PF/C is much more relevant with this one. Regarding shooters, Prince and Stuckey shot poorly against Houston, which we can't necessarily expect from Teague and Korver. Looking forward to watching. Don't forget about the NBA League Pass free trial going until the 6th!!! You can watch the Houston network or the Atlanta network for some interesting enemy propaganda.

It's funny how much I bitched about Delfino before the trade.....but now that we're trying to win, I'm so glad we have him. Hoping for some more veteran pickups for backup roles as well. Could really use a good backup point guard.

Rahat,
I agree on the PG issue. I would like to see Machado play against some NBA talent and see how he compares to his relatively reliable play in the preseason/summer league. Were we ever not trying to win? Even without Harden, we would have been able to be a top non-playoff team. I know the Rockets management has not been one to throw in the towel on a season, even if the playoffs were a longshot. Long live mediocrity!

I did think the delfino singeing was stupid As well but now it makes much more sense. Without harden we wouldn't score enough to be any good.

That´s why I'm starting to believe that Morey had that deal planned all along....maybe I'm giving too much credit to him, but it's a possibility, maybe it's the excitement of having Harden in our roster, I don't know. But has definitely improved Morey's offseason grade by far.

You are right, in that case, I'm starting to agree with you 100%.
