@  RocketMan : (26 June 2015 - 05:46 PM) I'll take them. No complaints. Dekker can score. Other guy will catch lobs all day.
@  jorgeaam : (26 June 2015 - 03:23 AM) So Dekker and Harrell were ranked 16 & 17 in Chad Ford's rankings, solid draft
@  txtdo1411 : (26 June 2015 - 03:11 AM) Nevermind. Should have known we were getting another 6-8 PF. I do like his tenacity. Versatility is definitely the theme here.
@  jorgeaam : (26 June 2015 - 03:08 AM) Called it
@  txtdo1411 : (26 June 2015 - 03:02 AM) Jo young reminds me of an Isaiah Canaan type of player with a tad bit more height. Would it be a reach at 32?
@  jorgeaam : (26 June 2015 - 02:55 AM) Ok, I'll stop calling out players
@  jorgeaam : (26 June 2015 - 02:52 AM) Montrezl Harrell and Kevon Looney (who many projected to be a lottery pick) still on the board, I'd say Rockets get one of them if available, specially Looney
@  jorgeaam : (26 June 2015 - 02:45 AM) Nevermind about RJ :(
@  jorgeaam : (26 June 2015 - 02:43 AM) They got Larry Nance Jr. he was projected as a late 2nd rounder
@  majik19 : (26 June 2015 - 02:42 AM) let's see who the Lakers get with the Jeremy Lin pick
@  jorgeaam : (26 June 2015 - 02:41 AM) RJ Hunter*
@  jorgeaam : (26 June 2015 - 02:41 AM) Some interesting players left, specially Rk
@  jorgeaam : (26 June 2015 - 02:38 AM) I'm still waiting for Morey to make a trade that will blow our minds
@  majik19 : (26 June 2015 - 02:29 AM) well i guess PG wasn't as big a need as we thought. Big sign that Beverly is going to be resigned?
@  jorgeaam : (26 June 2015 - 02:24 AM) Oh, he got traded to Minnessota
@  jorgeaam : (26 June 2015 - 02:13 AM) But I must say Tyus looks like the kind of players the Spurs will grab
@  jorgeaam : (26 June 2015 - 02:03 AM) Tyus might still be at 32
@  Cooper : (26 June 2015 - 01:51 AM) instantly wrong
@  Cooper : (26 June 2015 - 01:48 AM) Wright might still be there at 32
@  jorgeaam : (26 June 2015 - 01:46 AM) Grant is going to the Knicks for Tim Hardaway, so maybe Tyus

What stood out the most to me was that the Rockets actually ran a team offense for a change.
The ball moved,people were cutting,it was nice to see.
Previous games have seen Harden bringing up the ball and doing everything on his own,and when that wasn't working it would be Lin's turn to do the same.

I wonder if we're seeing Sampson's college roots showing as the Rockets have basically been running the college dribble-drive offense where the PG does everything. W/Harden in the PG role and the rest of the Rockets spacing the floor.(Prob why Morris was/is getting so much run at PF,he was making 3s.)
It'll be interesting to see what happens when McHale comes back-he certainly pick-n-rolls and the three wing weave and not so iso-heavy.

Was it just me or last night Lin was the PG and Harden the SG? I mean....Lin had the ball much more than Harden, which is a good thing. Harden is a good option at ball-handling, but he shouldn't be the primary one, otherwise, he loses efectiveness.

Lin seemed to have the ball much more in his hands than he did in previous games. I don't know if part of this was because they would double Harden immediately when he'd make the catch.

Lin was more of a traditional PG. He was actually bringing the ball up the court where in previous games Harden would be the one bringing it up.

I'm shocked at how good our offensive has played the last couple of weeks. If you had told me at the beginning of the season that our starting front court averaged a combined 40 points per game, I wouldn't have believed you. With Lin coming around, I'm optimistic that the Rockets will make the playoffs.

It's nice to have a starting C that is averaging 11 pts, 12 rebounds. How about Patterson's numbers from the last 10 games? (via ESPN)
MPG: 30.9
FG%: .550
RPG: 5.6
APG: 0.8
BLKPG: 0.7
STPG: 0.6
PFPG: 2.1
PPG: 17.0

He's averaging 23 ppg in the last 3 games. He could probably stand to foul a bit more, eh?
