@  DenverRocket : (05 February 2016 - 02:38 AM) I thought we'd seen the worst of it this season, but that Q1 ranks up there with it!
@  slick shoes : (04 February 2016 - 06:54 PM) DMo is back from the D-League. Might see some big minutes from him tonight.
@  Sir Thursday : (03 February 2016 - 11:51 PM) TJ was in a car accident on the way to the airport according to Feigen. Hope it wasn't anything too serious...
@  Cooper : (03 February 2016 - 09:49 PM) Crowder would be great
@  slick shoes : (03 February 2016 - 07:33 PM) I read that too but can't imagine what they could offer in return other than draft picks (which we have none of for this years draft).
@  majik19 : (03 February 2016 - 06:50 PM) Calvin Watkins said something about a potential Dwight Howard to Boston trade... but haven't seen any other details on that.
@  slick shoes : (02 February 2016 - 03:38 PM) the point: it seems you have missed it lol
@  thenit : (02 February 2016 - 06:23 AM) well its not really a snub when you aren't deserving
@  thejohnnygold : (02 February 2016 - 12:13 AM) Hopefully he is more concerned about our W's and L's right now than another All-Star game. His body could use the rest and I'm guessing he will be glad to kick back and enjoy watching from home.
@  slick shoes : (01 February 2016 - 09:45 PM) I wasn't really asking if YOU thought he was a snub. I was wondering how Dwight feels about it.
@  thenit : (30 January 2016 - 03:45 AM) Honestly D12 is like the 8th best big man in the west.
@  DenverRocket : (30 January 2016 - 03:25 AM) Kanter has killed us since D12's hissy fit (whether justified or not, he needs to put a lid on it!)
@  slick shoes : (30 January 2016 - 12:58 AM) has anyone seen any mention of DH12 being an all star snub? because I haven't. I wonder how he feels about that.....
@  slick shoes : (29 January 2016 - 07:48 PM) DMo will make his return tomorrow with the RGV Vipers. Not that it really makes any difference.....
@  majik19 : (28 January 2016 - 03:32 AM) pretty embarassing defensive performance. Offense was doing okay until they quit in the 3rd. How did we beat this team again?
@  majik19 : (28 January 2016 - 02:09 AM) we're going to lose this game because Leonard and Green are just living on the 3 pt line (and btw guys, they're good shooters!)
@  majik19 : (28 January 2016 - 01:42 AM) they seriously just fouled Clint Capela before he even inbounded the ball. wow.
@  SadLakerFan : (26 January 2016 - 07:36 AM) Troy Daniels had it going tonight against Sacramento - 28 Pts. 8/11 threes
@  thenit : (26 January 2016 - 03:19 AM) Since the trade for Josh we just looked different. It may look chaotic, but at least there's loads of energy and 100% effort
@  majik19 : (25 January 2016 - 04:58 PM) it wasn't even close. It helped for sure that the shots were falling (if those 3s weren't falling, would we have gotten all mopey?) but man that was a great quarter.

So, per Feigen, the Rockets have cut Scott Machado to make room for Patrick Beverley.

Beverley was the Eurocup MVP (which is the second tier of European Basketball competition - kind of the like the Europa League vs the Champions League) with Spartak Moscow. General consensus that I'm hearing is that he is a much more NBA-ready player than Machado (which I guess you'd expect given that he's got 4-5 years of European basketball experience under his belt). You don't get to be an MVP even in a second tier competition unless you can score and presumably dole out assists as well.

It's a shame to get rid of Machado, but I don't think Morey would have done it unless he'd seen something in Beverley that he thought was more promising. Hopefully we'll get to see what it is that's made him attractive enough to bring in.

morey has done and outstanding job spotting talent once we decided we were going to go young. lets hope he has found another piece to the puzzle. the rockets signed him to a 3 year deal so they must like him a lot.

This move addresses one of the Rockets' weaknesses, which is relying on Douglas as the backup PG (Douglas is better suited as a backup combo guard). Also, I suspect that the Rockets will offer Machado a D-League contract if his contract passes through waivers. But my question is whether this move indicates that the Rockets are losing interesting in Sergio Llull?

Llull signed quite a long contract with his ACB team, so it's very unlikely that he's ever going to cross the Atlantic. Suspect the Rockets have put that one on the backburner.

Feigen has been talking about the Rockets' interest in Beverley for a few weeks - I think about the same time that he got word they were going for James Anderson. So it's been floating around for a little while.

One thing that's funny is that everytime the Rockets sign some random guy like this whether it be from the second round or wherever, I never even bother to put up an article about it because I assume he'll suck. And then most of the time it turns out to be a contributor.

Second point: this goes along with the "do the Rockets have the deepest bench" thread...Morey's forte is finding those role player guys. Now that he has his core in Harden-Lin-Asik-Parsons, it will be exciting/interesting watching him fill around with other young pieces.

the guy stripped Jamal Crawford while he was performing his famous crossover, knocked down a 3, and played with great energy. He didn't even look nervous at all, as if he's been playing since the start of the season. I'm not on the train because it's one game in garbage time, but we should keep an eye on Patrick Beverley.

On consecutive defensive plays, he ripped Crawford's crossover and then forced him into a jumped pass. I was extremely impressed by his defense.

I'm going to post video of those plays later today when I get time. But if that pops up somewhere else beforehand, please post that in here.

Like Rahat, I was highly impressed with his defense. In addition, I was surprised with his handle on the ball. I've become accustomed to holding my breath while non-regulars handle the ball, but Beverley looked rock-solid with his dribble. While the appearance was brief, I was certainly impressed.
