if we don't upgrade our 4 by the deadline I'm not sure we make the playoffs.
we also need a halfcourt offense.

So sick and tired of all these PGs absolutely abusing Jeremy Lin.
To be fair, Holiday is a beast that anyone would struggle to guard. There's a reason they were so abysmal when we played them last time - he wasn't on the floor.
It feels like the scouting report is catching up to the Rockets a bit. Teams know they've got to get back and defend in transition, and it's significantly reducing the number of quick shot opportunities the Rockets can get by running. Perhaps fatigue plays a part in that as well - I haven't been seeing players push the ball up the court with the same level of intent they had during the hot streak in the last few games.

On the other hand, PF is a real problem. Patterson appears to be, at best, a backup big. Morris may not even be that. Both played worse than a replacement level player against Philly.

These losses were schedule losses so I'm not going to cry about them, but there are some foundational issues that need to be ironed out if we're going to be competing for a homecourt spot this year.

Pat is shooting .343 on 3s,over 50% on twos,only 1/5 of his shots are 3s and he's getting 1.3 FTs a game.(@ 27 minutes/game)
Morris is shooting .374 on 3s,over 50% on twos,w/@ 44% of his shots being 3s and getting 1.6 FTs a game.(@ 23 minutes/game)
Jones is averaging 18.75ppg on 15.2 shots,Pat is getting 11.9ppg on 10.2 shots and Morris 8.8ppg on 7.5 shots.
Interestingly,the three are scoring about the same per shot,but get their points differently.
Jones gets to the line,Pat feasts on 2pt shots and Morris gets his from the 3pt line.
Rebounding is hard to quantify as the talent level among the bigs is so different. However,Morris and Pat are both averaging 6.5 rebounds Per36 minutes and Jones in his limited minutes in the NBA ave'd 7.1 Per36.

My suggested tweak trade would be Pat(and prob Aldrich) to Sac for Jason Thompson.
Thompson will never be an All-Star,but is a perfect complementary big,able to play PF or C. He rebounds well(9 Per36),plays decent D(a block a game),scores adequately(@ 11ppg on a team full of no-passing gunners). Has no 3pt shot and a MLE contract for 5 yrs,but he has height-6'11"-and can start at PF and shift to C when Asik goes out.
