@  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.

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.
