@  thejohnnygold : (21 January 2018 - 03:15 PM) That was a nice win last night. WE need to know we can beat the W's come April/May.
@  DenverRocket : (19 January 2018 - 08:46 PM) Ridiculous!! Afflalo only got 2 games for actually swinging at Bjielica.
@  Mario Peña : (18 January 2018 - 01:00 AM) I can’t believe Ariza is getting a two game suspension!
@  Mario Peña : (18 January 2018 - 12:59 AM) Yeah, I always preferred this sight not only aesthetically but most of all the community here.
@  thejohnnygold : (08 January 2018 - 02:44 PM) Meh...I never enjoyed any of the others...I'll stay here...even if it is a bit of a ghost town.
@  rocketrick : (08 January 2018 - 01:59 PM) Ok, should all of us just transition to another site about now?
@  slick shoes : (12 December 2017 - 01:21 PM) Seems like we had enough trouble sending him anywhere this past summer lol
@  redfaithful : (12 December 2017 - 01:03 PM) According to the article send Anderson somewhere without taking money back
@  slick shoes : (11 December 2017 - 09:58 PM) What do we have to give up to make it work financially though?
@  redfaithful : (11 December 2017 - 05:22 PM) Wow, this: https://www.theringe...ets-free-agency
@  DenverRocket : (10 December 2017 - 05:36 PM) Yep, did you see that 4th quarter/stretch small ball line-up that stifled the Blazers and allowed Harden and CP3 to do their thing? Awesome defense!!
@  thejohnnygold : (09 December 2017 - 03:21 AM) It makes me so happy :)
@  DenverRocket : (07 December 2017 - 09:39 PM) Don't whisper too loud, but All Of A Sudden, The Rockets Are Dominant On Defense, Too
@  slick shoes : (28 November 2017 - 07:33 PM) Looks like JB will get another swing at interim head coach. Hope things fare better for him there than here.....
@  slick shoes : (27 November 2017 - 09:39 PM) Wow! What is going on in Memphis?!
@  thejohnnygold : (23 November 2017 - 05:56 PM) Also, Chris Paul is a wizard
@  DenverRocket : (23 November 2017 - 05:15 PM) Great defense, great depth. Loving it.
@  redfaithful : (23 November 2017 - 09:19 AM) No Anderson, no Gordon, no problem demolishing the Nuggets... this team is good
@  thejohnnygold : (13 November 2017 - 11:35 PM) That's good news for us and for you!
@  slick shoes : (13 November 2017 - 08:09 PM) CP3 is rumored to be back Thursday...

Last night's rebound fest against the Cavs doesn't seem like an aberration but part of a trend. Comparison of rebound diff to last year certainly supports it - Rockets went from +0.3 diff (ranked 14th) last year to +3.7 diff (ranked 6th) this year.

 

The improvement is on the defensive end - from .758 last year to .830 this year (best in the league), while offensive rebounds regressed from .246 to .219.

 

Nice trend.

There is a lot to like about this year's team.  It looks like defense is actually happening...something I have been waiting years to see.  As of now, I think this is the best Rockets squad after the '94-'95 championship team with Clyde and Dream.  If they manage to topple the West and take the title I may just have to move them up to that top spot.  It pains me a little to say it, but I think it would be true.

 

The worst part about this season so far is that I have only been able to catch a few games  :( I need to fix my schedule
