@  cointurtlemoose : (27 April 2015 - 05:31 AM) But serious response: has Ariza had that assignment in the past? Cause I forget. Luckily their wings wouldn't outsize Terry/Harden
@  cointurtlemoose : (27 April 2015 - 05:28 AM) majik - I'm still in denial, thinking happy thoughts. No room to think about elite PGs dicing us up......
@  majik19 : (27 April 2015 - 04:23 AM) just thinking about the clippers - if JJ Barea can do that... what is Chris Paul going to do?
@  08huangj : (27 April 2015 - 04:01 AM) I was really looking forward to see Cuban's reaction of a sweep right at the Mavericks home court though.
@  08huangj : (27 April 2015 - 04:00 AM) The Rockets had a good fourth quarter only because Smith was on fire.
@  majik19 : (27 April 2015 - 03:57 AM) just did absolutely nothing well after the 1st quarter. Missed everything, didn't rebound, and definitely didn't play defense.
@  jorgeaam : (27 April 2015 - 03:57 AM) Hahaha did anyone see Brewer stealing the ball away from Jefferson before the clock ran out?
@  08huangj : (27 April 2015 - 03:54 AM) This loss doesn't matter. The Rockets can finish things at home next time.
@  jorgeaam : (27 April 2015 - 03:50 AM) I love Corey Brewer, he just keeps hustling
@  jorgeaam : (27 April 2015 - 03:37 AM) Time for Johnny Gold's prediction of Smith hitting a game winning 3 to become true
@  jorgeaam : (27 April 2015 - 03:36 AM) Josh Smith turning into Kyle Korver
@  cointurtlemoose : (27 April 2015 - 03:33 AM) Well at least Johnson is getting some playoff minutes......
@  SadLakerFan : (27 April 2015 - 03:14 AM) Man, how big a disaster was Rajon Rondo?
@  JY86er : (27 April 2015 - 02:11 AM) This game is over if the Rockets (again) decide to hurry back on defense in transition.
@  jorgeaam : (27 April 2015 - 01:46 AM) 3 quarters to go
@  jorgeaam : (27 April 2015 - 01:32 AM) Dwight spinning from a defender into a lob is a thing of beauty
@  Mario Peña : (27 April 2015 - 01:23 AM) So annoying, Reggie whiner doing colour commentary.
@  jorgeaam : (27 April 2015 - 01:17 AM) Let's go Rockets!
@  Cooper : (27 April 2015 - 01:10 AM) Id take the clips since they only have 6 real nba players. Hard to believe Blake/cp and crew could keep up that intensity for so long.
@  jorgeaam : (27 April 2015 - 12:53 AM) Yeah but the Spurs can stop Harden pretty easily with Leonard

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?
