@  Cooper : (03 May 2015 - 05:12 PM) Id actually rather paul play game 1 and be gimpy all series than miss a game and get it treated.
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 May 2015 - 06:28 AM) Oh gosh yall, this is gonna be freakin feisty. Someone might punch Barnes
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 May 2015 - 06:27 AM) I bet Paul will play. And yaaayyy, hack-a-player amnesty probably??
@  Incubus2803 : (03 May 2015 - 06:19 AM) He's just saying that bc it'll make Paul look tough when he does. No one talks up his guys more than Doc.
@  jorgeaam : (03 May 2015 - 03:53 AM) Doc said if he has to guess, Chris Paul will not play in Game 1 against Houston.
@  jorgeaam : (03 May 2015 - 03:21 AM) Well, no Hack-A-Shaq for next round should make for an entertaining series
@  Drew in Abilene : (03 May 2015 - 03:17 AM) What a game... That was highly entertaining. Looking forward to the next round.
@  08huangj : (03 May 2015 - 02:51 AM) So the Clippers win off a Chris Paul off balance shot.
@  thejohnnygold : (02 May 2015 - 11:09 PM) I'll be watching.
@  jorgeaam : (02 May 2015 - 08:37 PM) So tonight we get to know the Rocket's next victim
@  RocketMan : (01 May 2015 - 08:37 PM) So if either of those teams fails to get past round 2...
@  RocketMan : (01 May 2015 - 08:36 PM) Houston has home court against anyone but the Warriors or Hawks.
@  JY86er : (01 May 2015 - 05:37 PM) Confirmed! Division title trumps all other criteria.
@  cointurtlemoose : (01 May 2015 - 05:25 PM) We do, I believe
@  JY86er : (01 May 2015 - 05:24 PM) Who has home court advantage if Rockets face the Clippers?
@  rocketrick : (01 May 2015 - 12:59 PM) ok
@  Losthief : (30 April 2015 - 09:00 AM) so...your telling me there's an opening?
@  jorgeaam : (29 April 2015 - 11:45 PM) Speaking of the tweet,the Rockets social media manager was fired because of that.
@  RocketMan : (29 April 2015 - 08:13 PM) I definitely retweeted that bad boy last night before it was removed. Classy all night.
@  cointurtlemoose : (29 April 2015 - 04:28 PM) PARTY TIME PEOPLE

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)
