@  thejohnnygold : (03 December 2016 - 05:48 AM) Looking at the structure of the deal I think we match it...unless Morey is concerned about messing up team chemistry.
@  DenverRocket : (03 December 2016 - 12:44 AM) Signed. 4yrs, $37 million. We have 3 days to match.
@  DenverRocket : (01 December 2016 - 05:24 PM) D-Mo close to signing Nets offer sheet according to Woj https://t.co/AGtJj532y0
@  Jatman20 : (29 November 2016 - 03:35 AM) D-Mo took bad advice from his agent. We shall see how it plays out. If he gets multiple deals or works things out with Houston.
@  Jatman20 : (29 November 2016 - 03:33 AM) D-Mo still ends up having to prove himself for one yr for about slightly less than what Houston offered for one yr.
@  Jatman20 : (29 November 2016 - 03:31 AM) probably break even financially....because t everyone loses
@  Jatman20 : (29 November 2016 - 03:30 AM) I agree Slick Shoes. He could probably play in one European for about $2 mil for what amounts to 20 something games....and then play for another European team for about the same for about 26 games. Rockets & D-Mo
@  slick shoes : (23 November 2016 - 07:30 PM) I don't know that we would get anything in return for DMo at this point. He will have to play to prove that he can physically be out there and prove that he has actual value.
@  Jatman20 : (22 November 2016 - 02:32 PM) Nov 22: Ennis can be traded Nov 23: D-Mo deadline to be traded.....for what it's worth.
@  slick shoes : (21 November 2016 - 08:27 PM) End of tweet: "Still no progress." Dude feels burned. I don't blame him.
@  DenverRocket : (21 November 2016 - 07:58 PM) I saw yesterday (somewhere, I think Calvin Watkins) a tweet saying that Rockets have had positive discussions with D-Mo's agent.
@  slick shoes : (21 November 2016 - 05:35 PM) Wiltjer is back from D-League!
@  DenverRocket : (17 November 2016 - 04:16 PM) Good interview with Thabeet for those interested: http://theundefeated...-to-the-league/
@  slick shoes : (09 November 2016 - 07:01 PM) "We have to commit to defense," said Jeff Bzdelik, the assistant coach charged with guiding Houston on that end, "or we're just a .500 team that runs up and down a lot." Hey, someone gets it!
@  thejohnnygold : (09 November 2016 - 05:53 PM) Zach Lowe has a solid article detailing the good and the bad for Houston. LINK
@  slick shoes : (05 November 2016 - 01:18 PM) Well,Ii don't feel so bad about the Rockets not being able to beat the Lakers on opening night now.
@  thejohnnygold : (04 November 2016 - 08:46 PM) thirded
@  majik19 : (04 November 2016 - 06:06 PM) I second slick shoes - please accept!
@  slick shoes : (04 November 2016 - 06:04 PM) "ESPN sources say Houston's latest offer to Donatas Motiejunas is a multiyear deal that starts at a fully guaranteed $7 million in Year 1." Please accept, D-Mo!
@  Jatman20 : (04 November 2016 - 01:23 AM) I guess Caps & Nene didn't do so bad. Thompson is killing Boston without Horford.

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?
