@  thejohnnygold : (22 October 2018 - 02:02 PM) The Rockets may be 1-2 right now, but the Thunder and Lakers are a combined 0-5 :)
@  Mario Peña : (21 October 2018 - 07:13 PM) Many times more concerning is the Rockets defense, specifically the help defense and in the middle. Capela looks a step slow to my eye but who knows?
@  Mario Peña : (21 October 2018 - 07:11 PM) Looks like Rondo spit which is concerning.
@  redfaithful : (21 October 2018 - 11:43 AM) The Lakers are definitely showtime if Lance Stephenson is the one trying to calm things down
@  Losthief : (20 October 2018 - 03:36 AM) Mix of both. Def early in season seemed slow, but working new rotation in doesn't worry too much unless it stays a trend. NO looked awesome though, and shot really well.
@  thejohnnygold : (18 October 2018 - 02:16 PM) I know the Rockets didn't look very good last night, but I honestly can't tell how much of it was us and how much was New Orleans looking good.
@  DenverRocket : (11 October 2018 - 08:30 PM) Last call for fantasy - we could really do with a few more participants. It's free! Register your interest by the end of today on the New Fantasy Season thread
@  Mario Peña : (07 October 2018 - 04:31 PM) If anyone is interested in joining the Red94 fantasy basketball league join in on the New Fantasy Season thread.
@  slick shoes : (05 October 2018 - 02:18 AM) james ennis is looking like our starting three. tenacious, defends well and can shoot the three.
@  Losthief : (21 September 2018 - 10:28 PM) me either...but thibs gonna thib
@  slick shoes : (21 September 2018 - 08:36 PM) Sounds like no one will be getting anything at this point. I don't see the angle the T wolves are trying to play here. This will only affect their locker room negatively going forward.
@  Losthief : (21 September 2018 - 06:49 PM) I didn't mean he deserved/we should give more...but i can see them getting more from others. Its really only one asset and cap filler/matching. Probably take at least two assets (or a higher value pick than our late late 1st)
@  slick shoes : (20 September 2018 - 05:44 PM) They dont have much leverage at this point. He's on the last year of his deal and he wants out. Maybe another developmental player on top of the previously mentioned package?
@  Losthief : (20 September 2018 - 06:51 AM) tough seeing that as enough. Hopefully we make a play for him though.
@  slick shoes : (19 September 2018 - 06:14 PM) Jimmy B has requested a trade. Marquis Chrriss, Brandon Knight, and a future first?
@  slick shoes : (10 September 2018 - 11:22 PM) corey brewer!
@  slick shoes : (31 August 2018 - 04:17 AM) cap space!
@  slick shoes : (23 August 2018 - 06:46 PM) I am hoping the team chemistry building trip to the Bahamas will integrate Melo into the fold quickly. He seems to be open to being a part of our culture instead of Melo on a team so there's at least that.
@  thejohnnygold : (23 August 2018 - 02:06 PM) I'm of the mind to concede judgement to the players. CP3 is too smart to want to bring in dead weight. If he thinks Melo will help, then I have to believe it too.
@  slick shoes : (22 August 2018 - 09:37 PM) As I recall, DH12 spurned many other suitors to join James and Co. It is just a matter of fit. He was not a good one.

Ultimately, this team will succeed when McHale and Sampson figure how to tweak the defensive game plan to each opponent and the players buy in. I see McHale as an excellent motivator which is very crucial at this stage. McHale and his staff must motivate and convince these young guys that defense is what will lead to better offense and make them a better team. Forget half court sets and X's and O's because that is not where this team finds itself, this is culture building right now.

fellingsupersonic, good point
As i said before 3 wins is 3 wins. I hope Mchale gets it together. Young teams have their up and downs, but the leader should be consistent. The leader sets the pace.

But ST, how much of that was also due to a lapse in Corbin's judgment? He never really adjusted anything last night, did he?


There was one thing I did notice him try - he inserted Burks at the beginning of the second half in a PG-ish role to try and provide a bit more of a threat from that position. Didn't really work though. You're right that Corbin could have been a bit more inventive on the other side of the ball, but I don't think that should detract from the coaching staff's credit. Many times you see teams go away from what's working illogically, but here they trusted their strategy even after the Jazz started out hitting on the threes and it paid large dividends.

The fact that this was against the Jazz made the win so much sweeter, and being part of their bad records... Now that's just the icing on the cake.
