@  slick shoes : (21 June 2017 - 04:28 PM) Morey is locked in for four more years. Glad to have some stability at the helm after everything we've seen the last couple of weeks.
@  slick shoes : (16 June 2017 - 04:31 PM) It's a shame we don't have a first rounder this year. I did notice that the W's and the Cavs have 0 picks this year (not that they need them).
@  thejohnnygold : (16 June 2017 - 03:57 PM) Whoever picks him is going to be a happy camper

@  slick shoes : (22 May 2017 - 05:25 PM) I can't decide if I want them to draft Ball or not.
@  thejohnnygold : (21 May 2017 - 02:50 PM) Don't worry...they'll find a way to screw it up.
@  slick shoes : (17 May 2017 - 03:52 PM) Is anyone else annoyed that the league reached out and helped the Lakers secure a top 3 pick to keep them from long term ruin?
@  Mario Peña : (13 May 2017 - 11:56 AM) It would appear James will take games off next year which is probably a good thing. Perhaps we will see some evolution from emphasis on regular season to being playoff ready both from a physical as well as a strategy standpoint.
@  rocketrick : (12 May 2017 - 05:26 AM) I personally will be rooting for the Spurs in their next matchup with Golden State in the Western Conference Finals
@  rocketrick : (12 May 2017 - 05:26 AM) Congratulations to the Spurs and Coach Pop. They completely destroyed the Rockets last night (understatement of the year)
@  DenverRocket : (12 May 2017 - 02:55 AM) Very disappointing end to an otherwise great season.
@  DenverRocket : (12 May 2017 - 01:10 AM) Stunningly bad. Out played, out coached and no one is stepping up :-(
@  slick shoes : (12 May 2017 - 01:07 AM) Well, it can't get any worse right?
@  slick shoes : (12 May 2017 - 12:35 AM) It's like Dekker has been waiting to play or something.
@  08huangj : (11 May 2017 - 12:08 PM) It is utterly baffling to me why MDA is not utilizing Dekker and Harrell. These two were integral to our dominant regular season bench!
@  DenverRocket : (10 May 2017 - 03:18 AM) Everything the TNT analysts said, I was screaming during OT. MDA blamed it on fatigue - no kidding sherlock, when you only use a 7 player rotation!
@  DenverRocket : (10 May 2017 - 03:17 AM) Sorely disappointed with that. Huge missed opportunity. I thought McHale was coaching again in overtime!
@  slick shoes : (10 May 2017 - 03:02 AM) No offensive scheme in overtime. No Parker, and no Leonard through all of overtime and you STILL can't close it out?!
@  thejohnnygold : (10 May 2017 - 02:57 AM) So much profanity in my home tonight...
@  Mario Peña : (08 May 2017 - 06:57 PM) Right Johnnygold! That was a good game!

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?
