@  Losthief : (27 March 2015 - 02:21 AM) I like Llull, first i heard about him actually willing to leave spain...had almost given up on the guy.
@  majik19 : (27 March 2015 - 02:18 AM) definitely gives us some Beverly insurance should he sign elsewhere (assuming Prigioni, Terry, and McDaniels are gone next year)
@  cointurtlemoose : (27 March 2015 - 12:08 AM) Also, this would be prettyyy cool... http://hoopshype.com...ll-to-join-team
@  cointurtlemoose : (27 March 2015 - 12:06 AM) I think McHale is properly rated. This season has probably boosted him to the middle of the back. Stotts should not be higher than Vogel and Stevens, who have squeezed every drop and more out of their rosters.
@  YaoMan : (26 March 2015 - 07:48 PM) @ txt - no I don't agree with the assessment simply because of how well McHale has handled all the injuries the Rockets had. If they feel that McHale didn't orchestrate that, then Harden should be a hands down MVP when the starting 5 misses more games than any other team in the West...
@  majik19 : (26 March 2015 - 07:18 PM) I was surprised they placed Kerr at 3. I know he's having a great year, but one year does not define a coaching career. People seem to forget he inherited a 50 win team.
@  txtdo1411 : (26 March 2015 - 07:13 PM) I was pretty surprised they had Stotts at 7 as well. He has done a good job with Portland, but health (last year, not so much this season) and talent have put him in a position to succeed.
@  txtdo1411 : (26 March 2015 - 06:31 PM) You think they are correct with that assessment YaoMan? I was actually a little surprised they had Casey and Stevens ahead of him. This year McHale has shown a lot more adaptability than people thought he had in him.
@  YaoMan : (26 March 2015 - 04:50 PM) Have you seen the ESPN coach ranking lately? They have McHale at slightly better than middle of the pack: http://espn.go.com/n...ngs-top-coaches
@  YaoMan : (26 March 2015 - 04:05 PM) If the Rox can stay focus, catching Memphis is definitely a strong reality...
@  Cooper : (26 March 2015 - 02:39 AM) ended up with a nice win and the grizz dropped a game.
@  08huangj : (26 March 2015 - 12:40 AM) The rockets look dead today
@  YaoMan : (25 March 2015 - 09:03 PM) Bev out at least 7-10 days...the rotation is starting to get very thin...hopefully they all come back when playoffs start...
@  Mario Peña : (25 March 2015 - 08:22 PM) Dwight back is great news but how he recovers from the 20 minutes he ends up getting tonight is what I'm holding my breath for.
@  cointurtlemoose : (25 March 2015 - 06:21 PM) On a more encouraging note, Howard is back and starting tonight!
@  cointurtlemoose : (25 March 2015 - 06:21 PM) Agreed, the emotion/hustle/agitation he brought is the stuff of playoffs...
@  txtdo1411 : (25 March 2015 - 02:46 PM) Man Bev was built for the playoffs with his high intensity style of play. I think it is a bigger loss in the PO than the rest of the regular season. I expect Terry and Prigs will fill in nicely for these next 12 games, but I'm pretty terrified of starting the playoffs with them manning the position.
@  cointurtlemoose : (25 March 2015 - 04:23 AM) (cont.) - here's where Prigioni's presence is huge...
@  cointurtlemoose : (25 March 2015 - 04:22 AM) Losing Bev is not fun, but here's where Prigioni
@  Losthief : (25 March 2015 - 03:51 AM) terry, priogoni, johnson interesting mash of talents: shooting, passing/creating, defense. Need me a blender!

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?
