@  Matt Maloney... : (12 July 2014 - 11:01 PM) When the BULLS amnesty Boozer on Weds, do the Rockets have any cap space left?
@  miketheodio : (12 July 2014 - 10:59 PM) I could see ariza as a trade asset with that contract. Wouldn't be surprised if Parsons is matched.
@  txtdo1411 : (12 July 2014 - 10:43 PM) That motorboating was hilarious! Maybe we can be an above average defensive team with Ariza starting at SF.
@  thejohnnygold : (12 July 2014 - 10:31 PM) I think this means no Parsons. I can live with this.
@  feelingsuper... : (12 July 2014 - 10:14 PM) It's going to be okay Rahat...
@  feelingsuper... : (12 July 2014 - 09:54 PM) Ariza and Harden are friends supposedly. Y'all remember the motorboating after Harden hit that game winner at the buzzer?
@  RudyT1995 : (12 July 2014 - 09:52 PM) Finally, a big wing who can play some D.
@  thenit : (12 July 2014 - 09:50 PM) Yay we got ariza
@  RudyT1995 : (12 July 2014 - 09:40 PM) I hope we don't match Parsons. Who is he going to guard?
@  txtdo1411 : (12 July 2014 - 09:40 PM) Yea I don't know which way we go. Do you really want $23 mil per yr in two SFs?
@  Yao-Lin Temple : (12 July 2014 - 09:40 PM) Declining scale. $8.6M, $8.2M, $7.8M, $7.4M.
@  RudyT1995 : (12 July 2014 - 09:40 PM) I love Ariza, but only if he can stay healthy. He's had some issues there.
@  feelingsuper... : (12 July 2014 - 09:37 PM) Or as the chatter goes, get Parsons back and play lots of small ball, poor Dwight.
@  feelingsuper... : (12 July 2014 - 09:33 PM) Okay, so Parsons isn't back and how much does that leave to get anyone else besides bringing last years guys back.
@  txtdo1411 : (12 July 2014 - 09:32 PM) At least it is cheaper than I thought, but I didn't really want him on a 4 year contract.
@  txtdo1411 : (12 July 2014 - 09:29 PM) Agreed to a 4 year $32mil contract with Ariza according to Amick
@  thejohnnygold : (12 July 2014 - 09:12 PM) scratch that. Looks like Morey is trying to get Ariza
@  thejohnnygold : (12 July 2014 - 09:09 PM) If Morey can squeeze Mike Dunleavy out of Chicago I think Parsons might be gone.
@  RudyT1995 : (12 July 2014 - 09:06 PM) Cubes thought he was being smart, but if we don't match, Cubes will be stuck with an overpaid 3 who can't guard anybody. And Dirk took a pay cut for that?
@  RudyT1995 : (12 July 2014 - 09:03 PM) I'm still shaking my head at Parson's contract. $14.7 mil next year, same as Harden, Paul George, DeMarcus Cousins, and John Wall. $2+ mil more than Tony Parker, Ibaka, and Jo Noah. What a gross overpay.

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?
