@  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...
@  redfaithful : (06 November 2017 - 09:45 AM) Seems that Harden's FG% are no longer something to worry about
@  thejohnnygold : (30 October 2017 - 08:43 PM) That was definitely one of the most up and down games ever.
@  DenverRocket : (30 October 2017 - 03:48 PM) Is anyone even interested in basketball right now? That Astros game last night almost killed me! Exhausted! ;-)
@  thejohnnygold : (24 October 2017 - 07:47 PM) woo-hoo! We should try and get Troy Daniels while we're at it.
@  slick shoes : (24 October 2017 - 05:36 PM) We are bringing back the Canaan-ball!
@  rocketrick : (23 October 2017 - 03:34 PM) Rockets 3-0. Golden State 1-2.
@  DenverRocket : (20 October 2017 - 10:26 PM) CP3 out for a month, potentially. We've reached out to Jameer NElson to fill in according to Chris Haynes https://twitter.com/...483930997547009
@  DenverRocket : (18 October 2017 - 05:48 AM) And the talking heads on TNT have already decided that CP3 won't work with the Rockets, lol
@  DenverRocket : (18 October 2017 - 05:46 AM) Oh yes! That wiped the smile off their faces! :)
@  redfaithful : (18 October 2017 - 05:37 AM) That was a fun 4th Q!
@  DenverRocket : (17 October 2017 - 06:53 PM) Good read on CP3 and James: http://www.espn.com/...nded-chris-paul God damn it, I'm excited for tonight! :)
@  thejohnnygold : (16 October 2017 - 09:25 PM) Let's see what kind of improvement he's made since last season...that market value might be pretty high.
@  slick shoes : (16 October 2017 - 07:03 PM) Capela will be an RFA at the end of the season. Will be interesting to see what his market value will be.
@  thejohnnygold : (11 October 2017 - 04:12 PM) LAST CALL FOR FANTASY BASKETBALL!!!!
@  slick shoes : (04 October 2017 - 02:04 PM) Doesn't matter. I still won't watch it.
@  rocketrick : (04 October 2017 - 01:18 PM) The NBA once again is ahead of the Curve........... 2017-18 All Star Game won't be East vs West for obvious reasons
@  redfaithful : (23 September 2017 - 10:54 PM) The OKC experiment just got way more interesting...
@  slick shoes : (22 September 2017 - 12:26 AM) I'm on the fence about Melo coming to Houston, but I would much rather have him here than the Blazers. Hoping we can get something worked out there sooner than later.

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
