@  thejohnnygold : (20 August 2014 - 04:52 AM) That article is a nice change of pace :)
@  Buckko : (20 August 2014 - 01:14 AM) http://probasketball...am-usa/related/ About Harden being the leader for team USA.
@  rockets best... : (17 August 2014 - 07:23 PM) good find Buckko
@  Buckko : (17 August 2014 - 05:35 PM) One for Covington too http://www.ridiculou...houston-rockets
@  Buckko : (17 August 2014 - 05:34 PM) http://www.ridiculou...ets-next-season
@  Buckko : (17 August 2014 - 05:34 PM) Great article on Troy Daniels
@  Buckko : (17 August 2014 - 04:49 PM) Harden stat line 18/5/5/2/2 with 2 TOs and 11-11 from the line.
@  Willk : (17 August 2014 - 01:12 AM) harden's passing is unbelievable tonight
@  Cooper : (15 August 2014 - 03:31 AM) yeah the injury aspect is overrated they're gonna play somewhere might as well be with top notch coaches, players, and training staffs.
@  feelingsuper... : (14 August 2014 - 11:31 PM) Players could get hurt at any time and they play all summer. On Team USA they have the best courts, coaches and trainers so to me it's pretty clear that I'd rather have Harden on USA than playing the Drew.
@  jorgeaam : (14 August 2014 - 11:30 PM) Well, last year there was smoke in the arena because of a short circuit, so the game wasn't played, but yes, that game included the Wolves too
@  rockets best... : (14 August 2014 - 11:00 PM) Cousins hurt at team USA's practice today. how many injuries will it take before the NBA looks at a review of policy?
@  RollingWave : (14 August 2014 - 08:27 AM) Isn't this the second strait year the Wolfs play in Mexico? I think the NBA i setting them up to move there lol
@  jorgeaam : (14 August 2014 - 02:53 AM) So the Rockets will be playing a game in my country, Nov 12 in Mexico City against the Wolves
@  Adi1008 : (14 August 2014 - 02:35 AM) Here's the NBA schedule: http://i.usatoday.ne...eam_by_team.pdf
@  thejohnnygold : (13 August 2014 - 07:01 PM) ...and that's how the NBA generates ratings :)
@  jorgeaam : (13 August 2014 - 06:15 PM) So from what I read in a B/R article, it seems we are facing the Lakers on opening night
@  txtdo1411 : (13 August 2014 - 02:15 PM) We were able to survive while Asik missed those 34 games last season. We did that without Dorsey on the roster. We aren't necessarily relying on Dorsey, but if he can contribute that is a huge plus.
@  RollingWave : (13 August 2014 - 07:05 AM) Omer Asik last year, after refusing to play for half of the year, had nearly 50% more minutes on the floor than Joey Dorsey's ENTIRE NBA CAREER to date. (958 vs 634) Dorsey's also 2 years older than Asik, BTW.
@  RollingWave : (13 August 2014 - 07:02 AM) your losing nearly 5000 minutes of play from 3 guys and replacing them with a guy who missed 25+ games in 2 of the last 3 years, 2 completely unknown Rookie, and a guy who is 30 year old and yet to have 1 good season in the NBA.

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.
