@  SadLakerFan : (04 May 2015 - 07:52 AM) Not sure if JT can stay close to Redick or Crawford either. He was rock solid in 2011 but that was a long time ago.
@  jorgeaam : (04 May 2015 - 02:01 AM) So Curry is the MVP, now I just hope the Rockets and Warriors meet in the playoffs and Harden shows the world who really deserved it
@  Cooper : (03 May 2015 - 05:12 PM) Id actually rather paul play game 1 and be gimpy all series than miss a game and get it treated.
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 May 2015 - 06:28 AM) Oh gosh yall, this is gonna be freakin feisty. Someone might punch Barnes
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 May 2015 - 06:27 AM) I bet Paul will play. And yaaayyy, hack-a-player amnesty probably??
@  Incubus2803 : (03 May 2015 - 06:19 AM) He's just saying that bc it'll make Paul look tough when he does. No one talks up his guys more than Doc.
@  jorgeaam : (03 May 2015 - 03:53 AM) Doc said if he has to guess, Chris Paul will not play in Game 1 against Houston.
@  jorgeaam : (03 May 2015 - 03:21 AM) Well, no Hack-A-Shaq for next round should make for an entertaining series
@  Drew in Abilene : (03 May 2015 - 03:17 AM) What a game... That was highly entertaining. Looking forward to the next round.
@  08huangj : (03 May 2015 - 02:51 AM) So the Clippers win off a Chris Paul off balance shot.
@  thejohnnygold : (02 May 2015 - 11:09 PM) I'll be watching.
@  jorgeaam : (02 May 2015 - 08:37 PM) So tonight we get to know the Rocket's next victim
@  RocketMan : (01 May 2015 - 08:37 PM) So if either of those teams fails to get past round 2...
@  RocketMan : (01 May 2015 - 08:36 PM) Houston has home court against anyone but the Warriors or Hawks.
@  JY86er : (01 May 2015 - 05:37 PM) Confirmed! Division title trumps all other criteria.
@  cointurtlemoose : (01 May 2015 - 05:25 PM) We do, I believe
@  JY86er : (01 May 2015 - 05:24 PM) Who has home court advantage if Rockets face the Clippers?
@  rocketrick : (01 May 2015 - 12:59 PM) ok
@  Losthief : (30 April 2015 - 09:00 AM) so...your telling me there's an opening?
@  jorgeaam : (29 April 2015 - 11:45 PM) Speaking of the tweet,the Rockets social media manager was fired because of that.

That's a good point. It also may explain some of how grim they looked o. Wednesday. There were more than a few possessions where the Rockets looked ready for free throws, but no foul was called. I'd surmise that this overall strategy becomes more difficult as whistles are swallowed in playoff ball. Unless you have some superstars, that is. Hopefully Harden and or someone else will metamorphose into that.

The Rockets has to play uptempo run and gun because they have no choice. all their offense comes from the perimeter. They have no offensive presence down low which results in them not being able to run a proper half court set because defenders do not have a low post presence to keep them honest.

Perhaps the rockets can try an pick up Al Jefferson from the Utah jazz. Big Al would be a perfect fit to give the Rockets at least somebody down low to keep opposing defenses honest--sort of like what Carlos Bpozer does for the Chicago Bulls. Jefferson does not have to dominate, just provide enough offense to help the Rockets spread the floor a bit.

Pairing him with Omer Asik would be a good idea as Omer can focus on the defensive end while Al can pump in points down low. It will certainly give Jeremy Lin and James harden more room to operate because right now opposing defenses probably now have the Rockets figured out by now.

I think Hollinger would say it's the foul shooting. We don't get enough foul shots and don't make enough when we do (looking at you Asik). Without foul shooting our 3 pointers have to be falling, which we all know has not been happening outside of Delfino.
