@  DenverRocket : (23 August 2017 - 12:33 AM) Kyrie to Celtics for IT, Crowder & Zizic plus a first round pick. Why would the Celtics do this? I'm flabbergasted!
@  DenverRocket : (23 August 2017 - 12:31 AM) Also enjoyed that, thx!
@  thejohnnygold : (20 August 2017 - 06:31 PM) Morey is awesome to listen to.

@  thejohnnygold : (11 August 2017 - 05:39 PM) That's true. Besides, we can beat them...maybe...
@  slick shoes : (11 August 2017 - 05:22 PM) Although, watching the reigning champs get their rings might be just the right motivation for the season.
@  slick shoes : (11 August 2017 - 11:29 AM) HATE that we're opening the season against the Warriors AGAIN.
@  thejohnnygold : (07 August 2017 - 01:08 PM) Everyone still seems to think it's going to happen...last rumor I saw said it will likely wait until training camp.
@  Mario Peña : (07 August 2017 - 12:50 PM) Yeah, that was super premature. I had a moment of over excitement after some woj bomb.
@  slick shoes : (28 July 2017 - 05:11 PM) Loads of excitement around here about your prediction, Mario.
@  Mario Peña : (25 July 2017 - 08:58 PM) Here comes Melo!
@  thejohnnygold : (17 July 2017 - 09:22 PM) Anyone got about $2.5B lying around... ^_^
@  slick shoes : (17 July 2017 - 07:39 PM) Les is selling the team?!?! After all this talk about wanting to play a certain way??? Yikes...
@  slick shoes : (07 July 2017 - 06:57 PM) We've got some cuts to make today before all of these "trade-able contracts" become guaranteed.
@  thejohnnygold : (05 July 2017 - 05:41 PM) Well, this is just glorious. It's a look at the Eastern Conference vs. the Western Conference :)
@  08huangj : (01 July 2017 - 03:56 AM) YEA! We resigned Nene for less than 4 million a year.
@  DenverRocket : (01 July 2017 - 03:44 AM) Wow, the West is getting crazy good. PG13 to OKC now!
@  slick shoes : (29 June 2017 - 07:55 PM) We just gained another trade piece from Dallas.

Given Patterson's below-average advanced stats (.030 WP48 -- ouch!), the injury is probably an opportunity for the team to get better. I just hope that the Rockets bring Montiejunas back soon so that he can rotate with Morris and Jones to figure out the most likely candidate to break out as a front line PF. My sense is that it's clear at this point that Patterson is destined to be a backup big in the NBA.

I'd imagine without Patterson McHale will try out some small ball lineups tonight. My guess is that Morris will start, Jones will get some spot minutes in the second. If he plays well he might see more, otherwise we'll be seeing a lot of Parsons at PF in the second half.

It will be a great opportunity for both Morris and Jones--let's hope they take full advantage of it.

It appears that today is a free League Pass day on NBA broadband and TV. Check it out at game time, just 20 minutes from now...

League Pass is Audio only for the Rockets game I think.

Not surprisingly, Marcus Morris has stepped up in Pat's absence. However, Marcus is obviously undersized against a number of opposing team's PF's so I for one don't see Marcus overtaking Pat as a starter this season. Until the Rockets can make their next big off-season move (assuming that move is for a PF), I just don't see anyone taking over Pat's starting spot in the Rockets lineup. Until then, I believe Pat is a more than serviceable PF for the Rockets, especially with his abiltiy to stretch the floor with his outside shooting touch and with his knowledge and proven abilities in the team defense concept.

I was at the Rockets game tonight (vs. 76ers) and it was good to see Motie get some meaningful minutes in the first half. He has a long way to go to overtake Patterson, Morris or Smith for that matter in terms of playing time. His defense, rather his lack of defense, was killing us the second quarter which allowed the 76ers to overcome a double digit lead by the Rockets and pull even. Still, it is encouraging to see Motie get meaningful minutes and hopefully Coach McHale can find some more playing time for Motie while Patterson is out with his injury.

How did Motie's offense look out there?
