@  rocketrick : (24 June 2016 - 05:19 AM) Rockets also signing Kyle Wiltjer, Stretch 4, played at Gonzaga and Isaiah Taylor, PG, UT
@  rocketrick : (24 June 2016 - 04:51 AM) Rockets have just signed PG Gary Payton II to a 3-year contract
@  majik19 : (24 June 2016 - 03:46 AM) not only is Onuaku a bad free throw shooter... http://espn.go.com/v...lip?id=15522771
@  majik19 : (24 June 2016 - 03:43 AM) Two centers... i'm sure he was just going potential but interesting nonetheless.
@  DenverRocket : (24 June 2016 - 03:38 AM) Zhou Qi, PF from China
@  DenverRocket : (24 June 2016 - 03:22 AM) Chinanu Onuaku © from Louisville - bad free throw shooter ;-)
@  DenverRocket : (24 June 2016 - 01:05 AM) Also, does this suggest that Thunder aren't confident of keeping KD?
@  DenverRocket : (24 June 2016 - 01:02 AM) Some of these draft day trades are bizarre. Why would Orlando trade Oladipo, Illyasova AND Sabonis for Ibaka???
@  slick shoes : (22 June 2016 - 04:50 AM) I am curious to see what Howard's perceived market value is compared to his actual market value. I'd give him a 3 year deal with the 3rd year a team option at 15 declining to 12 mil over the course of the contract.
@  majik19 : (22 June 2016 - 12:30 AM) So Howard officially opts out, which according to ESPN gives us 45 million in cap space. Wow! (Not that we'll be able to use it, most likely.)
@  slick shoes : (21 June 2016 - 06:57 PM) According to DM we'll be aggressively seeking a trade for a first rounder.
@  slick shoes : (21 June 2016 - 03:30 PM) Lebron, Kyrie, and buy in from the team. I also think that the pressure of delivering a title to cap off their historic season wore on their big three and that chasing 73 wins might have tired them out for the last three games.
@  majik19 : (21 June 2016 - 03:08 PM) so the unbeatable warriors - are the cavs a blueprint? or do they just have Lebron, so you can't really emulate that?
@  thejohnnygold : (20 June 2016 - 11:43 PM) This was one of my favorite Finals of all time. Amazing stuff.
@  slick shoes : (20 June 2016 - 04:44 PM) "It don't mean a thing if you ain't got that ring."
@  thejohnnygold : (17 June 2016 - 01:48 PM) Agree with you on LeBron. Not sure why the Forum link disappeared from the front page.
@  rocketrick : (17 June 2016 - 11:22 AM) Anyway, LeBron is clearly the MVP of this year's Finals at this moment in my opinion
@  rocketrick : (17 June 2016 - 11:21 AM) Whats up with accessing Forum? Technical Issue?
@  majik19 : (16 June 2016 - 01:06 AM) hey Harden won an award! the "Shaqtin a Fool" award... but an award!
@  slick shoes : (15 June 2016 - 04:52 PM) as long as he doesnt show up fat and out of shape and then blame a poor season on it.

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?
