@  King's G... : (03 March 2015 - 07:46 AM) Whiteside was better than Dwight yet he played less minutes ...how much you play sometimes has nothing to do with how good you are but what is your image , which manager you have etc. obviously there are many coaches better than mcgee of coaches yet hes coaching now
@  Mario Peña : (03 March 2015 - 05:22 AM) I like that James will be fresh for Memphis which is more important than Atlanta.
@  Cooper : (03 March 2015 - 02:41 AM) because bev isn't a star
@  majik19 : (03 March 2015 - 01:41 AM) i can't believe they suspended Harden but didn't even fine LeBron for purposely pushing Beverly back to the ground.
@  08huangj : (03 March 2015 - 01:25 AM) The rockets are 8-0 when Terrence Jones starts a match
@  jorgeaam : (03 March 2015 - 01:15 AM) But anyways, KGA is probably enjoying the trolling enough, so I shall stop here
@  jorgeaam : (03 March 2015 - 01:14 AM) I watch Shaqtin a Fool just to hear Shaq say "My Boy Javale Mcgeee" every single week
@  thejohnnygold : (03 March 2015 - 01:05 AM) There were so many youtube videos of Javale "playing within himself" I couldn't pick one. If anyone feels like laughing just search his name. He is also a two-time winner of the Shaqtin A Fool MVP Award. I think he also holds the record for most plays that caused a coach to shake his head in disbelief.
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 March 2015 - 01:04 AM) GIVE KJ THE KEYS
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 March 2015 - 01:04 AM) I actually don't hate the Harden suspension. I'd almost rather have him rested for Memphis.
@  jorgeaam : (03 March 2015 - 12:57 AM) Yes, obviously McGee is better than Howard guys, Josh Howard, that is.
@  thejohnnygold : (03 March 2015 - 12:52 AM) good excuse to rest him a bit
@  rocketrick : (03 March 2015 - 12:10 AM) Unsurprisingly to me, James Harden was just suspended 1 game for the faux kick to LeBron's groin area in yesterday's game
@  rocketrick : (03 March 2015 - 12:09 AM) Really? If Javale is "better than Howard" how come Javale barely played this season, total of only 250 minutes, on 2 bad teams?
@  King's G... : (02 March 2015 - 11:02 PM) hes better than howard plays more within himself
@  rocketrick : (02 March 2015 - 10:31 PM) Assuming D12 returns soon, when would McGee ever play anyway with T Jones, Motiejunas and Josh Smith gobbling up all the remaining frontcourt minutes?
@  thejohnnygold : (02 March 2015 - 08:36 PM) King's Gambit Declined...
@  King's G... : (02 March 2015 - 07:34 PM) fight fire with fire
@  King's G... : (02 March 2015 - 07:33 PM) anti mcgee brigade, you forgot we already have a mcgee mcgee of coaches ie mchale
@  cointurtlemoose : (02 March 2015 - 05:26 PM) Yeah, I was expecting it too, but also figured it would have been out this morning if so. Silver is trying to be more "hands off" in terms of player conduct, so maybe that's it? I honestly think he deserves it though

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?
