@  YaoMan : (21 December 2014 - 01:53 AM) They can't do anything right now. ATL is getting layups after layups and Rox can't throw the ball in the ocean...
@  txtdo1411 : (20 December 2014 - 05:10 PM) I disagree Cooper. He is a fairly good handler and passer, so I could see him cutting into Canaan's minutes with the second unit.
@  Cooper : (20 December 2014 - 12:24 AM) Ideally shved isn't going to play a whole lot
@  jorgeaam : (20 December 2014 - 12:22 AM) Philly has become the official dumpster of the nba
@  YaoMan : (20 December 2014 - 12:20 AM) Giving Rockets lots of options. Terry and Shved can play together when Harden and Bev are resting...
@  jorgeaam : (20 December 2014 - 12:18 AM) He's 6'6 and can handle the ball
@  jorgeaam : (20 December 2014 - 12:18 AM) Yes, Shved is probably playing PG/SG
@  YaoMan : (20 December 2014 - 12:15 AM) Is Shved going to play back up PG? Would that also mean Papa gets more time at the 4?
@  YaoMan : (20 December 2014 - 12:04 AM) Shved is coming to the Rockets too???
@  jorgeaam : (19 December 2014 - 11:37 PM) Alexey Shved has been traded to the Rockets in exchange for Ronny Turiaf./ Rockets waive G/F Francisco Garcia.
@  jorgeaam : (19 December 2014 - 11:37 PM) There we go
@  thenit : (19 December 2014 - 10:16 PM) I think Morey wanted Brewer from the get go. But he got them mixed up last season and got the wrong one.
@  YaoMan : (19 December 2014 - 09:43 PM) With Brewer, the Rox can have superior defense all around. Imagine Brewer, Ariza, Howard and Bev pestering the heck out of opposing offenses...
@  Mario Peña : (19 December 2014 - 08:32 PM) This is good news and hopefully Brewer slips right in.
@  YaoMan : (19 December 2014 - 08:04 PM) I like Troy but Brewer will definitely help the Rox
@  jorgeaam : (19 December 2014 - 08:03 PM) Turiaf is out for the year, so he is definitely going somewhere else, Rockets not done trading
@  jorgeaam : (19 December 2014 - 08:02 PM) Here's another link http://sports.yahoo....-194852845.html
@  Cooper : (19 December 2014 - 08:02 PM) brewer for daniels possibly with turiaf going somewhere
@  jorgeaam : (19 December 2014 - 08:01 PM) Along with Brewer is Turiaf, traded Troy Daniels and the Rockets must waive somebody

This game will be won or lost from beyond the arc... If the shots don't drop, we had better get the long rebounds.

God this team gets even worse. Please fire McFail and hire a legit coach or fire Morey as well. Because of us the Lakers are going to get into playoffs and same ole same ole Rockets will be one of the best worst NBA teams.

An I still the line person who isn't buying the GM and HC love?

First time poster but a long time lurker on red94.

I have a few points that I would like to make about this team. I have watched most of the rockets games this season, so here are my observations.

Is it me or is Harden Iso game a little like what Melo was a few years ago when he didn't trust anyone but himself? Most nights he will get his 20 points and be pretty efficient and look good, but however who ever he is guarding that player roams around and has a great shooting night. Mayo has torched him twice, tonight with george, pierce, crawford etc. He is great offensively but defensively he is a liability. So when he is struggling like he has in the past few games it just looks worse than it actually is.

In regards of McHale's rotation, I actually don't understand why Douglas doesn't get more minutes in the past few games when he actually haven't done anything to lose his minutes in the rotation. As long as he is not the primary ball handler he can get a few minutes at the 2 spot now when we have beverley.

Mchale is also mismanaging Lin, sometimes when he has a good shooting night and just starting to heat up, he takes him out, and other nights when he is cold he gives him more minutes. Last night he had the hot hand and Harden was god awful he continued to hand the ball to Harden. Tonight lin was 4-6 and 2-2 beyond the arc, he sits Lin for 15 minutes and Harden who struggled basically rested for about 50 sec in the second half. Harden has earned his right to play through his struggles but sometimes you have to give the pg duties to your actually point guard especailly when harden is avg 5 TO the last 5 games.

1 more last point, some turnovers by our backcourt are caused by Asik's poor hands, I believe that will be rectified in the future.

I have a lot more observations but this will do for now
