@  rocketrick : (20 April 2015 - 04:30 PM) What a joy it is to sign in.........
@  Mario Peña : (20 April 2015 - 03:47 PM) You alright there rocketrick, you come across out of sorts or something.
@  rocketrick : (20 April 2015 - 03:21 PM) Haq a whovever it doesn't matter, just haq and hack and haq......yes OK
@  rocketrick : (20 April 2015 - 03:19 PM) pops simply overrated....
@  rocketrick : (20 April 2015 - 03:19 PM) Yes........
@  rocketrick : (20 April 2015 - 03:18 PM) Over Rated......
@  rocketrick : (20 April 2015 - 03:18 PM) Popovich
@  rocketrick : (20 April 2015 - 03:16 PM) Present, Past or Future, whatever,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Poppich is Way Way Way Over Rated in My Opinion.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
@  rocketrick : (20 April 2015 - 03:09 PM) Popovich is Way Over-Rated. Has to do Hack WHoever..........and this is the Coach of the Future???>
@  SadLakerFan : (20 April 2015 - 03:01 PM) Watched a replay of the game - VERY entertaining. Who would have though Jason Terry would be the answer? Great team effort with D12 in foul trouble.
@  rocketrick : (20 April 2015 - 01:59 PM) Popovich is OVERRATED as an NBA Coach in my opinion because he has to resort to hack a Shak, or hack or D12 or hack WHoever.......
@  Mario Peña : (20 April 2015 - 01:53 PM) So here is a little wild speculation. Would Aldridge go to San Antonio and take over the reins for Duncan?
@  jorgeaam : (19 April 2015 - 09:46 PM) It was made for getting Josh Smith out, but I also think he send a message "two can play this game"
@  cointurtlemoose : (19 April 2015 - 07:40 PM) I enjoyed it as a "screw you" sort of move, haha
@  Mario Peña : (19 April 2015 - 07:20 PM) The intentional foul on Rondo was made so McHale could make substitutions.
@  JY86er : (19 April 2015 - 05:34 AM) Was that a hack on Rondo after Dallas hacked Smith and did they pull Rondo after that foul?

Yup having a stretch 4 is very valuable for Rockets, will help open up the floor for Lin and Harden, making them more dangerous to opponents as well by keeping defenses honest. Nice to see Rockets, though so young, have a lot of talented players who are capable of scoring. It's a pick your poison kind of offense. Not to mention both Harden and Lin can play the point pretty effectively and are great pick and roll guards, who are aggressive attacking the basket. Also helps to have a team with so many shooters who can be dangerous shooting the 3 ball, Parsons, Patterson, Harden, Lin, Delfino, Morris, etc.

I don't really understand the premise of this article. Patterson took an area of strength, his jump shot, and improved it with added range. He didn't add a new skill.

I'm curious as to how many points the Rockets are averaging per 100 minutes with Patterson in the lineup in comparison to say, Morris.

In my mind, Marcus Morris is more of a 3, or at minimum, a tweener between the 3 and 4. He just doesn't have the bulk to play against some of the more powerful 4's in our league. If Motiejunas or Jones could develop their game better, perhaps they would have some opportunity playing backup 4 to Patterson on certain nights when the opposing team has more powerful 4's on the floor. It seems Marcus Morris is getting opportunities against smaller 4's the early part of the season (and more powerful 4's to this point of the season simply because the rookies haven't proven themselves ready for regular game action) but I just don't see that happening for the entire season. Morris has certainly shown some positive signs and I hope he can settle into playing the 3 on a more regular basis at some point in the season. It will be difficult, to say the least, for Morris to move past Chandler Parsons and Carlos Delfino in the rotation they way both have started off this season and instead may have to rely more on opportunities when one of our regular guys misses some games due to injury and will need to shine when those opportunities come along as they will..

Just wondering if Greg Smith might be able to handle some playing time at the 4 this season for the Rockets. I would like to see the combination of Greg Smith and Asik getting some playing time together to see how they would mesh. It probably wouldn't work because neither has an outside shot and this tandem wouldn't be able to spread the floor as effectively as when Patrick Patterson is in the game.
