@  Willk : (11 February 2016 - 06:02 AM) JBB is the worst coach in the league. Morey get out of the office and coach the team since you are really the coach of this team
@  thejohnnygold : (11 February 2016 - 05:10 AM) Sorry guys, I clearly jinxed us :(
@  thejohnnygold : (11 February 2016 - 04:17 AM) Really like what JB has cooked up for our offense through first quarter and a half. Maybe there is hope :)
@  slick shoes : (10 February 2016 - 01:54 PM) At least we didn't get embarrassed again?
@  Mario Peña : (10 February 2016 - 04:19 AM) The invisible defense is in full effect.
@  majik19 : (09 February 2016 - 09:23 PM) with the bizarro Rockets, we'll probably somehow win tonight
@  slick shoes : (09 February 2016 - 03:15 PM) GS will enjoy a nice 30 point cushion for the majority of the game and after clearing both benches, our 2nd unit will make things "respectable" again.
@  Sir Thursday : (07 February 2016 - 05:16 PM) Still a depressing loss though :(.
@  Sir Thursday : (07 February 2016 - 05:16 PM) I thought the defence looked a lot better once we put a proper big man in rather than playing Ariza at the 4. Ariza was consistently late on the rotation against the pick-and-roll, but genuine big men tend to have better instincts about snuffing that sort of thing out. I think Harrell and Capela did a good job when put in that role.
@  DenverRocket : (05 February 2016 - 02:38 AM) I thought we'd seen the worst of it this season, but that Q1 ranks up there with it!
@  slick shoes : (04 February 2016 - 06:54 PM) DMo is back from the D-League. Might see some big minutes from him tonight.
@  Sir Thursday : (03 February 2016 - 11:51 PM) TJ was in a car accident on the way to the airport according to Feigen. Hope it wasn't anything too serious...
@  Cooper : (03 February 2016 - 09:49 PM) Crowder would be great
@  slick shoes : (03 February 2016 - 07:33 PM) I read that too but can't imagine what they could offer in return other than draft picks (which we have none of for this years draft).
@  majik19 : (03 February 2016 - 06:50 PM) Calvin Watkins said something about a potential Dwight Howard to Boston trade... but haven't seen any other details on that.
@  slick shoes : (02 February 2016 - 03:38 PM) the point: it seems you have missed it lol
@  thenit : (02 February 2016 - 06:23 AM) well its not really a snub when you aren't deserving
@  thejohnnygold : (02 February 2016 - 12:13 AM) Hopefully he is more concerned about our W's and L's right now than another All-Star game. His body could use the rest and I'm guessing he will be glad to kick back and enjoy watching from home.
@  slick shoes : (01 February 2016 - 09:45 PM) I wasn't really asking if YOU thought he was a snub. I was wondering how Dwight feels about it.
@  thenit : (30 January 2016 - 03:45 AM) Honestly D12 is like the 8th best big man in the west.

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?
