@  Cooper : (25 October 2014 - 01:35 PM) Good thing they wasted their first round pick on a guy they sent directly to the dleague.
@  feelingsuper... : (25 October 2014 - 11:14 AM) The Thunder have lost Morrow for about a month and a half. They will be digging themselves out of a hole most of the season.
@  2016Champions : (25 October 2014 - 06:04 AM) I'm a little hyped right now, holding myself back from going full retard.
@  2016Champions : (25 October 2014 - 06:03 AM) Call me crazy but I think if Rockets get the Thunder in the 1st round, then the Spurs in the 2nd, that would be more ideal than any road to the finals where Terrence Jones will be guarding the likes of Blake Griffin, Aldridge, Lee, Dirk, Zbo ect.
@  2016Champions : (25 October 2014 - 05:59 AM) Jeremy who? Lol
@  thejohnnygold : (25 October 2014 - 02:25 AM) That was definitely an awesome way to finish the game
@  Willk : (25 October 2014 - 02:22 AM) im on the canaan bandwagon
@  Losthief : (25 October 2014 - 12:43 AM) Keep Gettin Them CHecks All-Star!
@  Buckko : (24 October 2014 - 03:57 AM) That's an understatement Cooper.
@  rockets best... : (24 October 2014 - 01:16 AM) Nash should have quit 4 years ago
@  Cooper : (24 October 2014 - 01:15 AM) suns really sold high on him.
@  Willk : (24 October 2014 - 12:03 AM) sad to see nash's career end like this
@  cointurtlemoose : (23 October 2014 - 07:16 PM) Philly "doing it right" is a catch-22 when doing it right is completely sacrificing competitiveness for almost entire seasons. I see what you're saying, and it's not Philly's fault.
@  2016Champions : (23 October 2014 - 05:59 PM) I need more to go on to write something up. Just brainstorming right now. Monroe is more of a defensive plus at the 4 than the 5; I think the reason he played the 5 early on his because he couldn't shoot--no longer the case.
@  08huangj : (23 October 2014 - 12:28 PM) He just doesn't seem like a four to me, he started his career as a center. I also don't think that he'd be happy to be a backup and what does a very reasonable price mean. Maybe you can create a thread.
@  2016Champions : (23 October 2014 - 10:14 AM) Monroe would not only improve our starting 4 spot but also serve as a backup center.
@  2016Champions : (23 October 2014 - 10:12 AM) Should we go after Greg Monroe? He seems to have improved his midrange shot, and considering the likelihood he walks, we might be able to acquire him for a very reasonable price.
@  Buckko : (23 October 2014 - 04:31 AM) I have no problem with philly tanking. If you're gonna do something, do it right. They should be an extremely entertaining team in a few years.
@  Willk : (23 October 2014 - 01:23 AM) 2016 - I agree. I would rather see Canaan play than Ish
@  2016Champions : (23 October 2014 - 01:19 AM) Isaiah Canaan seems to get better with every game.

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?
