@  Mario Peña : (06 July 2015 - 11:42 AM) Of the remaining point guards I like Norris Cole.
@  jorgeaam : (06 July 2015 - 05:32 AM) It works tho
@  cointurtlemoose : (06 July 2015 - 05:17 AM) Yeah, bboley, may be just you. Haha.
@  thenit : (06 July 2015 - 02:11 AM) out of the remaining pgs Lin is their best option utilizing the pick and roll with DJ, the cupboard is bare. Doesn't move the needle for us but we have a tougher division this year than the past season
@  jorgeaam : (05 July 2015 - 11:01 PM) Wow the Mavs want Lin, lol
@  bboley24 : (05 July 2015 - 10:47 PM) It's just me isn't it?
@  bboley24 : (05 July 2015 - 10:47 PM) Is it just me or does Kevin Durant have an ugly shot?
@  jorgeaam : (05 July 2015 - 07:51 PM) Hibbert is a 7'2 player who can't get a rebound to save his life, don't count on it
@  thejohnnygold : (05 July 2015 - 06:37 PM) Well, Hibbert's rebounding numbers should improve with all the bricks Kobe & Co. are going to launch.
@  jorgeaam : (04 July 2015 - 11:06 PM) Roy Hibbert to the Lakers, going to be funny to see what Kobe does to him
@  jorgeaam : (04 July 2015 - 08:11 PM) Considering he shot 43% last year with all those guys, I'd bet sub 40% this year
@  Losthief : (04 July 2015 - 08:07 PM) Well...guess we will find out just how good Dame Lilliard really is.
@  jorgeaam : (04 July 2015 - 07:54 PM) No news on Josh Smith leads me to believe he might end up re-signing here. I must say doing no moves looks like the thing the Rockets should do after the year we had. Maybe only add a PG
@  jorgeaam : (04 July 2015 - 07:53 PM) Yeah and they are now too late to get any significant FA,what a joy to watch
@  cointurtlemoose : (04 July 2015 - 07:26 PM) Also, the Blazers... wow... six months ago, likely candidates for the WCF. Now, they're down 5 starting-caliber players in Aldridge, Matthews, Batum, Lopez, and Afflalo
@  majik19 : (04 July 2015 - 07:05 PM) the Spurs are legitimately terrifying.
@  cointurtlemoose : (04 July 2015 - 06:43 PM) Haha, I love the Spurs. They're like an older brother who's annoyingly good at everything
@  jorgeaam : (04 July 2015 - 06:24 PM) wow, the Spurs are also trying to get David West
@  jorgeaam : (04 July 2015 - 06:23 PM) Get ready for the Spurs to sign an unkown stashed prospect they drafted some years ago. And he'll probably post 20-10
@  Cooper : (04 July 2015 - 05:56 PM) I still don't think they are any better than the rest of the top four or probably even Memphis.

I feel like we should let D-Mo get extensive minutes tonight against Garnett. Yes, he will get torched, but it will be a great education for his long-term development. Plus, his quickness might get Garnett into some early foul trouble. Besides, I don't feel like Asik matches up well with Garnett at center because KG's range will pull Asik out of the paint and out of his most useful position on the court....unless we play zone, I guess.

I like our match-ups at the other positions...Lin will have his hands full, but should be able to play up on Rondo limiting his ability to drive. I guess we'll see....

The Rockets are so gassed. It's painful to watch them come into each game with the tank a little closer to empty. McHale keeps sticking to his rotations, and the guys are getting more tired and still losing. I think if they can't start winning these sloppy b2b games, you might as well give the bench some burn, right? Maybe you drop one, but then someone can actually hit some shots.

I'm dreading what to tomorrow's game will look like. The sixers aren't good right now, but they can play defense. If they pack the paint and the Rockets still can't hit threes or free throws, there's little to be done.

A couple points about the draft picks:
1. Sullinger went #20 because he has chronic back issues which could cut his career short after a few productive years. The Celtics were drafting for today; the Rockets were drafting for the future.
2. The Rockets' view of Morris' upside as a post presence was as a SF, not as a PF. At best I could see him breaking out as Carl Landry 2.0. For his sake, I would like the Rockets to trade him to a team where he can really play as a 3 in exhange for an elite starting 4 (he'd be part of a package of course).
On that note, it's been impressive to see Morris play so hard this year despite not being in his preferred position.

I did not, and from reading the recap I think I am glad.

this was the perfect game to show why the rockets need a low post option. when boston slowed down the running attack we could not score effectively. it also showed why parson can't play the 4 position(bass ate his lunch) even though he had a good game. boston turned us into a jump shot team that's why we lost in addition to freethrows. our half court offense stinks. we need a post player. I saw d-mo only at the very end when this might have been the perfect game for him to help us, but that's on mc hale and that's a hole seperate issue B)
