@  majik19 : (28 May 2015 - 08:05 PM) Offensively, I have no doubt that Love would be a great fit. Defensively... not so much. I think it's more important to upgrade the 1 than the 4 this offseason, assuming D-mo is healthy.
@  Mario Peña : (28 May 2015 - 07:08 PM) I can't make it but I thought I'd post that for the Houston guys.
@  Mario Peña : (28 May 2015 - 07:07 PM) From the Red Rowdies: Do you want to greet the Rockets today as they arrive back? Go to 8402 Nelms Houston, TX 77061 around 3:30 ‪#‎Support‬
@  Cooper : (28 May 2015 - 06:15 PM) would have to strip the roster to get him, let him lose in la with 40 yr old kobe and crazy rondo.
@  thenit : (28 May 2015 - 06:08 PM) Love interested in Lakers, Rockets and Celtics. Anyone here who wants him ?
@  majik19 : (28 May 2015 - 04:25 PM) It was a great year, and I think Harden will look at Game 2 and Game 5 and strive to be better. If he had gone out on a high note (say Game 4), there would probably be less motivation. But not with a game like that.
@  SadLakerFan : (28 May 2015 - 10:01 AM) Great season. Harden looked perplexed out there, almost like Lebron in 2010. He'll figure things out.
@  Johnny Rocket : (28 May 2015 - 08:31 AM) Thanks, Rox--great season!
@  RudyT1995 : (28 May 2015 - 05:43 AM) Wonder what he'll do this year to make Cuban look like a fool.
@  RudyT1995 : (28 May 2015 - 05:43 AM) Interesting off-season coming up. Time for Morey to work his magic.
@  Mario Peña : (28 May 2015 - 04:57 AM) What a year! It's a great time to be a Rockets fan!
@  miketheodio : (28 May 2015 - 04:06 AM) many records were broken this series
@  Willk : (28 May 2015 - 04:03 AM) Morey's time not team
@  Willk : (28 May 2015 - 04:02 AM) it is now Morey's team
@  Willk : (28 May 2015 - 04:02 AM) the future is bright
@  JY86er : (28 May 2015 - 04:00 AM) If you told me this team would lose in the conf finals after losing out on Bosh and Parsons. I'd say u were cray cray. thank u Rockets
@  cointurtlemoose : (28 May 2015 - 03:55 AM) Very, very proud of the season we had. From Morey to McHale to the players. All 3 of those dealt with plenty of roadblocks, and fought through them all the way to the WCF
@  jorgeaam : (28 May 2015 - 03:51 AM) Oh well, it was a great season anyway, teams and writers will definitely not take this team so lightly again
@  thenit : (28 May 2015 - 03:47 AM) Hard to fault harden, only 3 games that were close was when he went god mode. the team needed Dmo to be a second go to go to slow the pace and create his own shot. Also misses his D since Jones can't defend anyone who is good
@  cointurtlemoose : (28 May 2015 - 03:38 AM) Cmon Howard, no reason for that dude.

I was looking at Hoopdata's shooting statistics broken down by distance from the basket the other day and was amazed by just how low percentage most looks from 3-9 feet are (eg. post-up range). Do we really need a post game to be successful given that? I guess the theory is to be able to establish a threat and then kick out once you've drawn the double team, but honestly there aren't that many players in the league that command a double team in the post these days (and Patterson certainly isn't one of them).

I'm a little worried here. From the minute Toney Douglas was inserted late in the third Houston's execution has nosedived. The lead is down to 13 as I type this (~5 minutes left in the 4th), and it has been coming the whole way through. Need a bit more intensity to close the game out, and then they can put their feet up.

Also, Terrence Ross is one hell of a dunker.

In the end we managed to put it away, but a better team would have made us pay for being so sloppy in the 4th. A lot less comfortable than it should have been.

I personally feel its more about the fact that you won't be able to get those drives as readily in the playoffs. Whereas a postup shot is always there.
