@  Buckko : (15 April 2014 - 05:22 AM) Hope we can get him back in the offseason, he was just signed for the rest of the offseason.
@  jorgeaam : (15 April 2014 - 04:16 AM) Bulls release Tornike Shengelia and sign Greg Smith, well, that didn't take long
@  Cooper : (15 April 2014 - 02:39 AM) nice win. Dwight looks like he's ready go. Bev's still a little rusty but he should be fine.
@  Sir Thursday : (14 April 2014 - 10:24 PM) Thanks huang, that's useful knowledge :).
@  08huangj : (14 April 2014 - 01:15 AM) I've watched a lot of his games
@  08huangj : (14 April 2014 - 01:15 AM) Guys, I live in Guangzhou. Just in case you didn't notice, Powell was in Guangzhou playing with the tigers before he came to the Rockets. No midrange shot. Good rebounder. Bad defender. Good at attacking the rim. This is my summary for his time at Guangzhou.
@  Cooper : (13 April 2014 - 11:16 PM) hes 6-9 so id guess more of a pf but it doesn't really matter either way I guess.
@  Buckko : (13 April 2014 - 11:02 PM) Not really, you seen his season averages? Not pretty.
@  Sir Thursday : (13 April 2014 - 10:18 PM) He's more of a PF, I thought. You could always make the specious "RINGZZZ!" argument, since he won two with the Lakers...
@  Buckko : (13 April 2014 - 09:04 PM) Waived Pittman, signed Josh Powell. I don't really get why they signed a scrub SF.
@  Drew in Abilene : (13 April 2014 - 02:41 AM) In the postgame interview, Bev said he was alright, but it looked iffy...
@  08huangj : (13 April 2014 - 02:40 AM) Not watching the game. Just looking at the play-by-plays.
@  08huangj : (13 April 2014 - 02:39 AM) Rockets win!
@  Drew in Abilene : (13 April 2014 - 02:39 AM) Oh gosh, I hope Beverley isn't hurt again... He was taken out in the last few seconds limping after falling and looking like he hurt his right knee...
@  08huangj : (13 April 2014 - 02:39 AM) yep
@  Drew in Abilene : (13 April 2014 - 02:35 AM) Harden, Lin, and Beverley all coming up big in these last few clutch minutes.
@  08huangj : (13 April 2014 - 02:01 AM) And why is Parsons missing?
@  08huangj : (13 April 2014 - 02:00 AM) If Rockets don't get better soon, they are not going to be the fourth seed in the western conference.
@  08huangj : (13 April 2014 - 01:59 AM) Howard and Beverley are both back, but look at the scoreboard: They are losing by 12 points to the Pelicans. What a dissapointment
@  Drew in Abilene : (13 April 2014 - 01:55 AM) I don't agree with blaming McHale for the end of this season. He's been missing two starters which has been a huge blow, and has been trying to not ride other major players too hard right before the playoffs.

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.
