@  slick shoes : (22 February 2019 - 09:52 PM) Hopefully playing with some talent will bring back the old form.
@  Mario Peña : (22 February 2019 - 09:32 PM) That’s a good point slick. I watched him (on tv) for a couple games when he was with Erie. He looked good though not as high energy as I remembered him.
@  slick shoes : (22 February 2019 - 05:09 PM) I will be very interested to see how my man T Jones fares this time around. I doubt McFail did much to improve him as a player.
@  Mario Peña : (07 February 2019 - 02:46 AM) We got Schump!
@  slick shoes : (28 January 2019 - 01:47 PM) I really hope AD doesn't land in LA....
@  redfaithful : (24 January 2019 - 01:54 PM) Harden's lead in the scorers board is now 7 pts/game... ridicilous
@  thejohnnygold : (22 January 2019 - 12:01 AM) Faried is intriguing...
@  Mario Peña : (17 January 2019 - 01:17 PM) That game last night was a tough loss but that Nets team was scrappy and hit all those threes at the end. The defensive effort was lacking but these loses happen.
@  slick shoes : (14 January 2019 - 09:21 PM) Clint out for a month!
@  slick shoes : (10 January 2019 - 11:52 PM) I would almost rather shelf CP until after the all star break to keep him fresh for a potential postseason run. Would be nice to get EG back sooner than later though.
@  thejohnnygold : (10 January 2019 - 10:22 PM) This has been a brutal stretch of games and we've handled it about as well as could be hoped for. It will be nice to cruise through a slightly softer part of the schedule for a while.
@  Mario Peña : (08 January 2019 - 07:14 PM) The Rockets smoked those Nuggets last night!
@  Mario Peña : (04 January 2019 - 06:49 AM) MVP!!!
@  redfaithful : (04 January 2019 - 06:44 AM) Wow, great great win
@  thejohnnygold : (03 January 2019 - 02:32 PM) I had to go look that up...then I remembered :)
@  slick shoes : (02 January 2019 - 08:37 PM) I'm with JG on this one. March 29, 1990.
@  thejohnnygold : (02 January 2019 - 04:13 PM) I may be biased, but Olajuwon keeps the title of greatest. Not only was he unstoppable offensively, but he was one of the greatest defenders the game has ever seen. Harden is not even close on that end of the floor...yet :)
@  slick shoes : (01 January 2019 - 09:20 PM) I have to concur, I have been pleasantly surprised with our play without CP. I still think we are a 2nd round exit at best without him but hopefully with careful maintenance the rest of the season he can be in uni when we need him.
@  Mario Peña : (31 December 2018 - 09:49 PM) Harden seems unstoppable right now. Maybe the most amazing Rocket of all time though I grew up watching Dream.
@  Mario Peña : (31 December 2018 - 09:46 PM) I had given up hope for the season but it looks like this team could gel. Nene’s presence seems more important that I had figured and I hope he stays healthy.

New post: The Rockets Daily - October 30, 2013
By: John Eby

Jeremy Lin, Sixth Man - This won't be controversial. Chandler Parsons essentially told reporters on Tuesday morning that Patrick Beverley will be the starting point guard, despite coach Kevin McHale's secrecy on the issue. Per the Houston Chronicle:

Quote:

“Did he not tell you guys who is starting? I don’t know why it is a big surprise. It is the same guys as when the preseason ended,” Parsons said.

In the last two games of the preseason, the starting five were Dwight Howard, Omer Asik, Chandler Parsons, James Harden and Pat Beverley.

The only way he's wrong is if McHale decides to change the lineup just to gently remind Parsons who the coach is (unlikely).

Jeremy Lin is a starting-quality point guard, no doubt. But he happens to play on a team with arguably the best passing shooting guard in the league, and another capable 3-and-D point guard on the roster. Them's the breaks. He will probably play the same number of minutes as last year, and I wouldn't be surprised to see McHale go with a three-guard lineup of Bev-Lin-Harden to finish a lot of games. As long as he and Asik are healthy, the Rockets should be able to keep an excellent playmaker and an elite defender on the floor for all 48 minutes, which is a luxury reserved for championship contenders.

Voice of Reasons - The Point Forward has 68 reason to watch the NBA this season. Quite a few of them touch on the Houston Rockets and its players. The highlights:

Quote:

12.Russell Westbrook’s comeback from knee injury. And, more specifically: the look of rage carved into Westbrook’s face the next time he plays against Houston’s Patrick Beverley, the player responsible for the knee-on-knee bump that knocked the Thunder All-Star guard out of the 2013 postseason.

16.Keeping pace, or rather: keeping tabs on the potential shift in playing style for the fastest and slowest teams of yesteryear. Dwight Howard’s arrival in Houston could slow the Rockets down a touch, George Karl’s ousting in Denver could cause the Nuggets to pump the brakes, Dave Joerger’s promotion could wake up the Grizzlies and an influx of athleticism could give the Pelicans a jolt. Which of those changes have the substance to become trends?

17.After years, a reprieve from Dwight Howard rumors. They’re done! (For at least two or three years six months.) The idea of Dwight Howard free of drama isn’t too bad, either.

34.The power forward/stretch forward derby in Houston, where Dwight Howard has no clear frontcourt complement.

47. The odds-on chance that Rockets GM Daryl Morey takes home “Executive of the Year” honors, which would put a cap on years of precise roster-reshaping and serve as validation for his Sloan Sports Analytics Conference movement, which has had its share of doubters and detractors.

48. Dwyane Wade’s handwritten note gets its day(s) in court. Jan. 29. March 4. Circle them now. Those are the dates of the first meetings between Wade and his two offseason foils, Kevin Durant and James Harden, respectively. No one, especially not a three-time champion, goes to the trouble of writing out a “I’ll make you respect my place in history” pledge without doing absolutely everything in his power to back it up.

68. Dwight Howard’s return to Staples Center. No matter your stance on Howard’s behavior and decision-making, Lakers fans deserve their chance to vent, just like Magic partisans before them.

Tweet That - Daryl Morey gives James Harden some pub...

...and James Harden steals a motivational trick from the greatest player of all time: use a perceived slight to fuel your aggressiveness.


The time for talk is over. Tonight we cry havoc and release the dogs of war. The Houston Rockets are back.
