@  Mario Pena (... : (31 October 2014 - 12:57 PM) More fuel for the Durant dream.
@  jorgeaam : (31 October 2014 - 06:18 AM) It seems injuries will be the main thing this year again
@  thenit : (31 October 2014 - 04:09 AM) Good news for us. Westbrook out with a hand injury. No Reggie Jackson either. We might get a nice cushion on OKC
@  Cooper : (31 October 2014 - 02:44 AM) Their team d leaves a lot to be desired, bench play was poor as well it is early but the knicks aren't good at all.
@  Mario Pena (... : (31 October 2014 - 02:35 AM) Love's defense on that JR Smith drive was laughable.
@  Losthief : (30 October 2014 - 05:32 PM) yeah...but canaan was playing garbage time...and our guys were not playing well in it, went from 30 point lead to finish margin the 4th. so more like cannan even, bev plus 19, still bev >
@  SadLakerFan : (30 October 2014 - 04:47 AM) Realize that +/- isn't the best stat, but Bev +19 and Canaan -12?
@  thenit : (30 October 2014 - 03:50 AM) Westbrook will lead the league in scoring. Everything is going through him his usage rate must be like 50%
@  Losthief : (30 October 2014 - 03:02 AM) bev just pulled up lame, not good.
@  Losthief : (30 October 2014 - 02:56 AM) omg...harden just got a call out on good d by a jazz announcers!!!!
@  Losthief : (30 October 2014 - 02:56 AM) i've been maintaining the idea ariza vs parsons is a wash, and i think terry makes less mistakes than our guys last year, so he might not bring as much but doesn't take as much away either
@  Fury : (30 October 2014 - 02:54 AM) Maybe losing Chandler isn't quite the problem that the media think it is. We have talent at the top. Depth helps.
@  Fury : (30 October 2014 - 02:54 AM) Maybe it's just me, but I think we're deeper at wing with Ariza/Terry.
@  Losthief : (30 October 2014 - 02:42 AM) maybe silver said something to ;em
@  Losthief : (30 October 2014 - 02:42 AM) yeah....seems like they finally figured it out tho.
@  2016Champions : (30 October 2014 - 01:54 AM) Then he said out of Greece and I put two and two together.
@  2016Champions : (30 October 2014 - 01:53 AM) DMo has black hair now? Hmm..
@  2016Champions : (30 October 2014 - 01:53 AM) I was squinting at the screen thinking was that really DMo? DMo looking good!
@  2016Champions : (30 October 2014 - 01:52 AM) Same.
@  Losthief : (30 October 2014 - 01:52 AM) he's been so consistent with the mistake tho makes me think it might be wrong on his sheet too.

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?
