@  slick shoes : (12 December 2017 - 01:21 PM) Seems like we had enough trouble sending him anywhere this past summer lol
@  redfaithful : (12 December 2017 - 01:03 PM) According to the article send Anderson somewhere without taking money back
@  slick shoes : (11 December 2017 - 09:58 PM) What do we have to give up to make it work financially though?
@  redfaithful : (11 December 2017 - 05:22 PM) Wow, this: https://www.theringe...ets-free-agency
@  DenverRocket : (10 December 2017 - 05:36 PM) Yep, did you see that 4th quarter/stretch small ball line-up that stifled the Blazers and allowed Harden and CP3 to do their thing? Awesome defense!!
@  thejohnnygold : (09 December 2017 - 03:21 AM) It makes me so happy :)
@  DenverRocket : (07 December 2017 - 09:39 PM) Don't whisper too loud, but All Of A Sudden, The Rockets Are Dominant On Defense, Too
@  slick shoes : (28 November 2017 - 07:33 PM) Looks like JB will get another swing at interim head coach. Hope things fare better for him there than here.....
@  slick shoes : (27 November 2017 - 09:39 PM) Wow! What is going on in Memphis?!
@  thejohnnygold : (23 November 2017 - 05:56 PM) Also, Chris Paul is a wizard
@  DenverRocket : (23 November 2017 - 05:15 PM) Great defense, great depth. Loving it.
@  redfaithful : (23 November 2017 - 09:19 AM) No Anderson, no Gordon, no problem demolishing the Nuggets... this team is good
@  thejohnnygold : (13 November 2017 - 11:35 PM) That's good news for us and for you!
@  slick shoes : (13 November 2017 - 08:09 PM) CP3 is rumored to be back Thursday...
@  redfaithful : (06 November 2017 - 09:45 AM) Seems that Harden's FG% are no longer something to worry about
@  thejohnnygold : (30 October 2017 - 08:43 PM) That was definitely one of the most up and down games ever.
@  DenverRocket : (30 October 2017 - 03:48 PM) Is anyone even interested in basketball right now? That Astros game last night almost killed me! Exhausted! ;-)
@  thejohnnygold : (24 October 2017 - 07:47 PM) woo-hoo! We should try and get Troy Daniels while we're at it.
@  slick shoes : (24 October 2017 - 05:36 PM) We are bringing back the Canaan-ball!
@  rocketrick : (23 October 2017 - 03:34 PM) Rockets 3-0. Golden State 1-2.

Huh, Skiles has already made my lineup scouting report irrelevant by starting Mbah a Moute at SF so they can put him on Harden and then starting Udoh. They've also got Udrih back and playing, despite it being reported he'd be out tonight.

Well, Carlos Delfino has a full-fledged "eff-you" mode. Who knew?

Also, a pair of observations from the very frustrating 2nd quarter..
1. On two or three possessions in a row with Harden on the bench, Toney Douglas initiated the offense while Lin spotted up in the corner. Predictably, the offense fell to pieces. McHale should never, ever, ever let that happen again. Like, ever.
2. The Bucks have a very mobile, yet rail-thin, frontcourt engineered to react to dribble penetration, but which can be abused in the low post. The Rockets went to the post just once to try to score in that stretch. The result? Patterson bullied Larry Sanders (may have been Henson) down to about 2-feet from the basket and was then fouled by Dunleavy who came over to help. As PPatt's post potency continues to grow, I'd like to see them go to him there more than one possession per game.

In the first half Henson was dominating Patterson on the boards - it was actually quite painful to watch. Mind you, the start of the third quarter by the Bucks might just be the worst stretch of basketball I've seen in quite a while so that probably wins in the "what was more painful" stakes. It took them a minute to actually get a shot off, and even then they were 0-10 before they could get anything to fall.

Also, Delfino's dunk in the second half was awesome. Hope that's up there in the top 10.

Definitely think something should have been stated about the fact that after having it not show up for this season so far, McHale went back to playing Patterson at the 5 like he did last year. It worked out in the end, but it was definitely aggravating to watch it in the second quarter.

Good win, but not without troubling indications. Given how well he has played this season, how on earth does McHale justify playing Smith for only a couple of minutes during garbage time?
