@  jorgeaam : (23 November 2014 - 03:13 AM) Most three-point field-goal attempts, game
49-Dallas vs. New Jersey, March 5, 1996

Houston has 44 so far
@  jorgeaam : (23 November 2014 - 03:12 AM) WOW, 75 combined 3PA so far, NBA record for Most three-point field-goal attempts, both teams, game was 69
@  jorgeaam : (23 November 2014 - 01:51 AM) We're on pace to break the 3pm in a game record, 12 already with 6 min remaining in first half
@  jorgeaam : (23 November 2014 - 01:48 AM) Insane 3 point shooting so far
@  Mario Pena (... : (23 November 2014 - 12:22 AM) Big man down, I repeat the big man is down! http://blog.chron.co...nee/#27967101=0
@  jorgeaam : (21 November 2014 - 10:07 PM) My bad, it's good to learn that, thanks for the input :D
@  Mario Pena (... : (21 November 2014 - 05:26 PM) jorgeaam, it's called self deprecation. It doesn't mean he's ok with people making jokes rather it's a sign of having a sense of humour regarding his defense and hthe hoopla surrounding it. On the court he has clearly shown he is not ok with the ridicule.
@  rocketrick : (21 November 2014 - 03:10 PM) Harden OK with people joking about his D?? Hello---did anyone bother to watch the game the otber night? I guess it's kinda like calling the kettle black at this point, WTF......
@  jorgeaam : (21 November 2014 - 01:25 AM)
@  jorgeaam : (21 November 2014 - 01:25 AM) I don't know if you guys have seen this, but it seems Harden is ok with people joking about his D
@  cointurtlemoose : (20 November 2014 - 08:09 AM) But Papa is great. What a dude. I <3 Papa. I need a t-shirt with that on it.
@  cointurtlemoose : (20 November 2014 - 08:03 AM) This was one of those times where our 'late game - small lead' tactics (or lack thereof) makes me want to explode...
@  SadLakerFan : (20 November 2014 - 05:19 AM) Rockets seemed in control for most of the game, but Lakers closed on a 12-1 run. Will wait for the analysis tomorrow.
@  Cooper : (20 November 2014 - 05:13 AM) yeah, well and jones hard to win without starters in a position we aren't particularly deep at in the first place still terrible loss.
@  jorgeaam : (20 November 2014 - 05:09 AM) are we really that dependent on Dwight? 2 out of our 3 losses when he's out
@  Cooper : (20 November 2014 - 05:07 AM) last few possessions have been beyond horrible.
@  Adi1008 : (20 November 2014 - 05:06 AM) ;_;
@  SadLakerFan : (20 November 2014 - 05:05 AM) I only have ESPN gamecast so I can't see what's going on - but, you have GOT to be kidding me.
@  thenit : (20 November 2014 - 05:00 AM) Kobe is a chucker that's why no FA wanted to join him
@  jorgeaam : (20 November 2014 - 04:58 AM) Why would Harden foul Johnson like that? Smh

Certainly more of a challenging matchup at most positions. The matchup at PF/C is much more relevant with this one. Regarding shooters, Prince and Stuckey shot poorly against Houston, which we can't necessarily expect from Teague and Korver. Looking forward to watching. Don't forget about the NBA League Pass free trial going until the 6th!!! You can watch the Houston network or the Atlanta network for some interesting enemy propaganda.

It's funny how much I bitched about Delfino before the trade.....but now that we're trying to win, I'm so glad we have him. Hoping for some more veteran pickups for backup roles as well. Could really use a good backup point guard.

Rahat,
I agree on the PG issue. I would like to see Machado play against some NBA talent and see how he compares to his relatively reliable play in the preseason/summer league. Were we ever not trying to win? Even without Harden, we would have been able to be a top non-playoff team. I know the Rockets management has not been one to throw in the towel on a season, even if the playoffs were a longshot. Long live mediocrity!

I did think the delfino singeing was stupid As well but now it makes much more sense. Without harden we wouldn't score enough to be any good.

That´s why I'm starting to believe that Morey had that deal planned all along....maybe I'm giving too much credit to him, but it's a possibility, maybe it's the excitement of having Harden in our roster, I don't know. But has definitely improved Morey's offseason grade by far.

You are right, in that case, I'm starting to agree with you 100%.
