@  slick shoes : (23 February 2017 - 09:17 PM) PG was reported to be dealt today by the deadline, but wouldn't commit to sign long term with ANY team other than the... Lakers?
@  slick shoes : (23 February 2017 - 09:10 PM) Tyler Ennis to the Lakers. Looks to be a good working relationship between Magic and Morey.
@  slick shoes : (23 February 2017 - 09:03 PM) I'll pass on Bogut all day long. I agree with, JG. Let's bring up Onuaku before we start bringing in new guys/salaries.
@  rocketrick : (23 February 2017 - 08:05 PM) Opens up Cap Space for someone like Bogut or Sanders or another big that may be bought out later this week by their team..........
@  slick shoes : (23 February 2017 - 08:02 PM) I hope that KJ can get some playing time with the Nets.
@  thejohnnygold : (10 February 2017 - 02:54 PM) I'll take him!
@  slick shoes : (10 February 2017 - 12:48 PM) Little too late in the season for him to save me, I think.
@  thejohnnygold : (09 February 2017 - 11:22 PM) Yeah...but I think you might enjoy what's about to happen with Giannis ;)
@  slick shoes : (09 February 2017 - 09:10 PM) What a shame about J Parker. Dude was really starting to shine.
@  thejohnnygold : (26 January 2017 - 10:46 PM) No, but I saw Isaiah Thomas tell P-Bev, "You can't hold me!"
@  slick shoes : (26 January 2017 - 06:58 PM) Could anyone read James' lips last night while he was torching Dekker? I saw a few "pay attention!" 's, but couldn't make out the rest.
@  redfaithful : (02 January 2017 - 04:04 PM) Very good article about Harden, Westbrook and turnovers: http://www.fanragspo...rnover-problem/
@  slick shoes : (02 January 2017 - 02:20 PM) So now Dmo will play on a one year vet min deal with the Pels. Wonder what coud've changed his mind about his deal requirements.... <_<
@  thejohnnygold : (31 December 2016 - 12:01 AM) I imagine Brewer has been "dangling" ever since he signed that last contract. I saw some rumor that Kosta Koufos is at the top of our list for trade targets right now. Those are words I never wanted to hear :lol:
@  majik19 : (30 December 2016 - 08:46 PM) found this hilarious: Zach Lowe of ESPN reports that Houston has been "dangling" Corey Brewer in trade talks, who could provide Sacramento with another wing player in case it loses out on Rudy Gay at some point. But he also noted that Brewer's name hasn't drawn much traction.
@  slick shoes : (28 December 2016 - 07:47 PM) DMo working out for the Lakers per ESPN. I wouldn't hate it, but don't see him there long term for some reason.
@  thejohnnygold : (23 December 2016 - 10:07 PM) Per Tom Haberstroh: Pop said he doesn't watch game tape on the opponent this time of year. "Except for the Rockets. Harden is ridiculous." :)
@  DenverRocket : (20 December 2016 - 12:06 AM) Looks like Clint will be out for a while, MRI revealed micro-fracture of the left fib: http://www.lequipe.f...t-capela/761879
@  JY86er : (19 December 2016 - 03:29 PM) Did he fail the Rockets' physical?
@  majik19 : (16 December 2016 - 02:54 AM) you mean UNrestricted Free Agent.

I really liked McHale's tactic of going small against the big Grizzlies frontline. Got us back into the game where we looked out of it. However, I think at the end he left that lineup out there for slightly too long. Houston cut the lead to 87-85, so Lionel Hollins called a timeout. Out of the timeout, these were the lineups:

Memphis: Conley/Pondexter/Gay/Randolph/Gasol
Houston: Lin/Harden/Delfino/Parsons/Asik

Coming out of a timeout, Houston is going to be in trouble both on the boards and defending in the post. I would have liked to have seen them try to match Memphis and put Patterson in for Delfino. I know PPat was struggling to rebound last night but he still would have done better than Delfino down the stretch. It also would have been invaluable to have had someone in the post area who can actually catch the ball if necessary (Asik is not that person).

Still, I can't be too angry because it was his decision to go to that lineup in the first place that got the Rockets back into the game.

Oh, you want somebody in the post that can catch the ball and do something? Sorry man, but the Rockettes don't HAVE anybody like that.


BTW, who's this Terrence Jones guy?

Unless Parsons develops into a reasonably efficient 12-15 ppg scorer, is it really realistic to expect that he and Asik can be components of an effective lineup over extended minutes?

Asik, Patterson, and Parsons simply cannot coexist.

Interesting - why do you say this? I feel like Patterson has been playing reasonably well on the offensive end - going forwards I'd estimate we can count on him for ~12 ppg on average. I mean, it's not a gaudy number, but it's by no means bad and what's more I think it's something he can do with consistency. Or is it that you feel he's not enough of a threat to draw the defence's attention?

I agree with Rahat. There is simply not enough efficient scoring punch in the Parsons-Asik-Patterson trio to play extended minutes together. It's doubtful at this stage of their development that either Parsons or Patterson will improve enough offensively to change that reality.

totally agree. it's nice to have good defensive players, but somebody gotta score. teams have begun to double our guard players because we don't have a scoring threat in the post or a consistant corner 3 pt shooter. something has to change or it's going to be a long season.

Truth, Parsons lack of a three point shot, which won't get much better this season. (He is jumping forward instead of up and down. They taught us this in grade school!!) Without that floor spacing Asik and Patterson just don't have the post games to stay competitive. Although you have to like the screening ability of both.

Since Asik is our best center and Parsons essentially our only wing stopper PPat will be the one to lose his starting job. This team is just not built for him to succeed right now.

This is the reason why we should target for a PF next offseason and the reason why probably the best fit for us would be LaMarcus Aldridge, that's the scoring punch we need while having a wing stopper and a turkish wall inside.
