@  adonneus : (01 April 2015 - 02:57 PM) Wow! Yeah. The website looks very slick. Looks like an increasing focus on video though. :( They ARE a TV network, but I'd much rather read my news rather than watch it.
@  08huangj : (01 April 2015 - 09:55 AM) I love the new espn nba format
@  jorgeaam : (31 March 2015 - 09:01 PM) T Jones questionable for tomorrow's game
@  cointurtlemoose : (31 March 2015 - 04:26 AM) Capela = 2019 MVP
@  jorgeaam : (31 March 2015 - 01:56 AM) There's no way that was a jump ball
@  Fury : (31 March 2015 - 12:47 AM) Dwight's dressed. Could he see a few 4th quarter minutes in a pinch? Could use his D on Valanciunas.
@  blakecouey : (31 March 2015 - 12:19 AM) Impressive so far. Scary good dunks we're seeing
@  Mario Peña : (31 March 2015 - 12:16 AM) Could we be witnessing the CLINT CAPELA GAME?!?
@  Mario Peña : (30 March 2015 - 11:31 PM) Yes
@  jorgeaam : (30 March 2015 - 11:01 PM) Is he also out for the playoffs?
@  Cooper : (30 March 2015 - 07:38 PM) Yeah mchale and crew will have to get creative on D thats a glaring mismatch
@  YaoMan : (30 March 2015 - 07:07 PM) Maybe the approach will be similar to yesterday afternoon by have N Johnson (maybe KJ) on the opposing PG. And sometimes even Ariza as he has done in the past. Will depend on the rest of the match ups for the rest of the line-up.
@  majik19 : (30 March 2015 - 06:41 PM) I would be more upset if it was the Beverly from last year we were missing... but Bev just hasn't been great this year. Scary to imagine two 35+ PGs chasing Curry, Conley, Lillard, Monta, Westbrook, and Paul around though...
@  cointurtlemoose : (30 March 2015 - 06:19 PM) Moreso bummed about losing his hype/emotion/agitation than anything else. We'll be fine on offense, and though his D will be slightly missed, Johnson encouraged me yesterday in that regard
@  Mario Peña : (30 March 2015 - 06:12 PM) Beverley is opting for surgery on the ligament so will be out for the season including the playoffs per Jonathan Fagen if The Chronicle.
@  Mario Peña : (30 March 2015 - 02:36 AM) I don't think that will happen till the last game or so. McHale, Finch and JB have done a good job this year and I trust them.
@  jorgeaam : (30 March 2015 - 01:33 AM) I'm still excited about the fact that D-MO and T-Jones are still missing and the rockets keep winning
@  jorgeaam : (30 March 2015 - 01:18 AM) Time to get Harden some rest
@  Mario Peña : (30 March 2015 - 01:15 AM) Rockets move into 2nd in the Western Conference with today's win and the Grizzlies loss in San Antonio!!!
@  jorgeaam : (29 March 2015 - 06:48 PM) Ask a wish!

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?
