@  Cooper : (23 April 2014 - 05:20 PM) It was interesting to see guys like Derozan and Wall/Beal bounce back from bad first games.
@  miketheodio : (23 April 2014 - 04:44 PM) i liked the wiz vs bulls. wiz had a great comeback.
@  rocketrick : (23 April 2014 - 02:40 PM) Was it just me or were those East Conf playoff games last night boring?
@  miketheodio : (22 April 2014 - 06:16 AM) this is all speculation, but i honestly believe the NBA is trying to set a "tone" for some of these game.
@  miketheodio : (22 April 2014 - 06:15 AM) obviously blazers v rockets, but look at the first GSW v clippers game. same deal. this was also done a bit last year for hou vs okc.
@  miketheodio : (22 April 2014 - 06:14 AM) big proponent of let the players play. nba is too ticky tacky. i think the refs were told to be loose with the whistle for series that involved teams with bad blood.
@  rocketrick : (22 April 2014 - 12:55 AM) Hopefully the NBA will change their policy on reviewing plays in the final 2 minutes to include reviewing foul calls. Right now the NBA policy is simply not to review foul calls. Would probably end up in a longer game and completely stop the flow of the game. Still, it is better to get the call right especially in closely contested games.
@  rockets best... : (21 April 2014 - 11:56 PM) I never believed in corruption from high levels in the league however last nights game would be ammo for those that support it
@  rockets best... : (21 April 2014 - 11:53 PM) the NBA admitting their officiating mistake after the fact is hollow. they need better in-game correction and better overall officials. the crew last night was awful
@  BrentYen : (21 April 2014 - 08:30 PM) WT....NBA just corrected that last foul call on D12, should be on Freeland
@  feelingsuper... : (21 April 2014 - 06:43 PM) Yesssssss! I just saw here as well rocketrick, rejoice! http://blog.chron.co...play-in-game-2/
@  rocketrick : (21 April 2014 - 05:25 PM) According to a report on ESPN.com and Yahoo, Beverley has received medical clearance to play in Game 2. No new damage to his knee per his MRI.
@  Cooper : (21 April 2014 - 03:00 PM) You can blame mchale a little bit for defensive schemes but even that was mostly poor execution plus LA seemed to hit every shot. Player usage was not a problem
@  Cooper : (21 April 2014 - 02:49 PM) You can't bench starters in a playoff game have to trust they will get through it. nothing the blazers would love more than having troy daniels on the floor instead of harden or beverley.
@  08huangj : (21 April 2014 - 10:42 AM) If Harden didn't waste so many chances, the Rockets would've won this game. Even though the Trail Blazers in my opinion wasn't suppose to win this one, I think the main reason was McHale.
@  08huangj : (21 April 2014 - 10:37 AM) Forgot to add Beverley. McHale's player usage: For example: When the Rockets were shooting so bad at the three point line and Beverley didn't exactly look like an game changer or even a NBA player, McHale didn't have the nerves to switch on Troy Daniels. He also didn't play Motiejunas, one of the best young players of the team. When a starter is not playing well, like Harden and Beverley for this game, you gotta switch him off for a while. You don't just keep all your starters on the court even when they're playing bad and couldn't resist the Blazers in the fourth quarter. P.S: Harden got 2 attempts at the end of the fourth quarter and overtime that was game changing even when he missed so much shots.
@  08huangj : (21 April 2014 - 10:32 AM) Well, my opinion is that if the Rockets don't advance to the second round, McHale is definitely going to be fired. He might even be fired if he didn't make it to the Western Conference Finals. I mean, maybe my expectations for the Rockets are too high. The truth is: Dwight Howard came to Houston to win a championship, not lose in the first round(Though for me the odds between the two teams are even now). Houston has every ability to win a championship. Dwight Howard and James Harden are both top five players with a good coach. There is also a really good supporting cast: Chandler Parsons, Omer Asik, Terrence Jones, Jeremy Lin, and some good bench players that McHale didn't even bother to play.
@  feelingsuper... : (21 April 2014 - 06:31 AM) Agreed, we just witnessed the Aldridge game. Great players swing games.
@  SadLakerFan : (21 April 2014 - 06:25 AM) Some positives - Aldridge has developed into a great player, but law of averages - he won't be hitting huge threes and scoring 46 again. Harden is unlikely to miss 20 shots again. And even though you live with Howard's free throw struggles, they came in bunches at a critical point, triggering the Blazers' big comeback. It ain't over.
@  feelingsuper... : (21 April 2014 - 06:03 AM) The Rockets seemed to regress to the team they were earlier in the season a little, I guess that was to be expected. I am looking for the team to bounce back of course.

What do you all think of getting Fredette from the Kings? We need a backup PG/SG combo to replace Harden/Lin when they come out. I don't think he would cost much and could give a spark off the bench.

Can't see anything like that happening after the Beverley signing.

Rahat:
trying to pair gortat, gay and dragic sounds like something to work with to me throw in scola and you just might start winning some games. the move ain't all that bad depending on what they give up.

I have heard, via Twitter, that the Griz may be shopping Z-Bo also to see if they can find any attractive offers. Seems plausible to me because it's been widely known Gay was available for a while now and yet still no in depth rumors.

Chris Andersen has been evaluated and gone through a workout with the Miami Heat, I think he'd be a huge help in rebounding for them, which is their biggest weakness right now.

Why can't Kenyon Martin find a job? I understand his attitude issues and age but the guy was solid just a few years back- Im sure he could help one of the contenders(ala Miami Heat)

One more note, ESPN Insider is reporting that the Rockets(along with several other teams) may be interested in Donte Green.

I think that's a recipe for sustained mediocrity.

Gay is under one of the worst old-CBA contract, any team taking him will be killing the next two seasons. I think amnesty is more likely...

There's a trade I would love to see going through: http://espn.go.com/b...-rudy-gay-chase

Such trade would probably take both teams into the mediocrity zone with no cap money to spend, and along with the trading history the Rockets already have with both (Kyle Lowry...), it could turn into one of these deals where Morey turns assets to wins...

According to the Internet, Melo's anger was sparked by comments from KG regarding the former's wife. If that's the case, I don't blame Melo at all.

I heard KG told melo that his wife tasted like honey nut cherrios. if that's the case then those are fighting words. that's like someone talking about your momma. in my opinion that will get you a fist sandwich :angry:
