@  thejohnnygold : (18 February 2018 - 04:11 AM) Yeah, I have thought the same thing. Everything is going so well there isn't much up for debate.
@  slick shoes : (16 February 2018 - 07:34 PM) As stated before, if you are unhappy with the amount of activity here, you are more than welcome to contribute something yourself. I think many of us are so pleased with the way the season has played out thus far that we don't need to come here to complain or moan or advocate for this trade or signing.
@  rocketrick : (16 February 2018 - 05:20 PM) Wow, so many good stories but 0 articles this season regarding the Rockets on this site.
@  slick shoes : (13 February 2018 - 06:49 PM) Nvm, we are waiving Troy Williams to make room for Joe Johnson.
@  slick shoes : (13 February 2018 - 01:42 AM) I guess that takes us out of the running for Iso Joe?
@  DenverRocket : (10 February 2018 - 02:25 AM) Apparently we're picking up Brandan Wright, who was bought out by the Grizzlies today.
@  Mario Peña : (09 February 2018 - 11:17 AM) That was crazy.
@  slick shoes : (08 February 2018 - 06:45 PM) Wow. What are the Cavs doing???
@  DenverRocket : (05 February 2018 - 11:37 PM) Even Love seems happy to be injured and out of there for a while, based on his recent comments. It's a complete sh!t show!
@  Mario Peña : (05 February 2018 - 07:59 PM) I have friends who are Cavs fans and obviously most of them aren’t interested in burning jerseys. Considering I have was there to see a good game even I was disappointed in the lack of effort. I don’t see how the Cold War between LeBron and Gilbert gets any better.
@  DenverRocket : (05 February 2018 - 06:36 AM) I thought it was hilarious.Don't feel sorry for those clowns, they'll be burning his shirt again come free agency :)
@  Mario Peña : (04 February 2018 - 02:12 PM) I was at that Rockets game last night guys and that Cavs defense wasn’t even professional. I saw a lot of jogging up and down the court. I almost felt bad for Cavs fans.
@  slick shoes : (04 February 2018 - 07:33 AM) Just read that he is also unhappy with his role in Minny. If it was me, I would take the same money for the same role on a championship caliber team vs an up an coming team. Just one man's opinion.
@  DenverRocket : (04 February 2018 - 12:03 AM) Why would they release him? I heard that Shabazz Muhamad has asked out, but nothing about Crawford (his minutes are not going to be much different/better if he comes to us)
@  slick shoes : (03 February 2018 - 11:59 PM) Would be interested to see if we take a look at Jamal Crawford if released by Minnesota. Great extra tool to have for the stretch run. I imagine him winning us a game with a clutch three as well.
@  DenverRocket : (02 February 2018 - 06:31 PM) @RocketRick why don't you write one and submit it for publication? Plenty to write about.
@  rocketrick : (02 February 2018 - 04:36 PM) Our Rockets really do have a chance this year...........and this site is like dead in the water. Last published article was back in November. Good Luck with that........
@  thejohnnygold : (02 February 2018 - 05:12 AM) Yes, I was advocating a Harden trade...I'll admit I was wrong...to a degree. It was based on the premise that he wasn't committed to defense--which he wasn't--and that he needed another player to be the lead dog (such as Chris Paul which I did advocate before Morey brought him in). So, yeah...I was completely wrong...but a little right ;)
@  Mario Peña : (01 February 2018 - 10:00 PM) Oh that’s right I vaguely remember that. I was distracted by my move from Texas to New York around that time and I disagreed so I remember not paying those threads much attention.
@  DenverRocket : (01 February 2018 - 06:48 PM) I'm pretty sure JG was advocating a full rebuild ;-)

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.
