@  redfaithful : (23 May 2018 - 08:37 AM) Wow. Defense.
@  Mario Peña : (21 May 2018 - 02:29 AM) Reggie and Chris are so annoying as color/analysis commentators.
@  Mario Peña : (16 May 2018 - 06:27 PM) Well there’s this “LeBron wants to play off the ball” rumor making the rounds. https://www.google.c...-in-future/amp/
@  Mario Peña : (14 May 2018 - 03:52 AM) They have to get Capela going offensively but more importantly on defense Clint will have to have an effect on Curry and Durant. I think the Durant’s contesested twos will be welcomed but any threes by him will be trouble. The Rockets defense has to fly around enough to force them off the three point line and then create turnovers on their overconfident passes.
@  thejohnnygold : (13 May 2018 - 08:00 PM) Aside from knocking down our 3's and playing stellar defense I think the other key to victory is keeping Curry off the floor by attacking him early and often to try and rack up some fouls and force him to sit.
@  rocketrick : (12 May 2018 - 04:35 PM) So this site is finalizing apparently on Shoutbox after all these years. So sad............
@  rocketrick : (12 May 2018 - 04:34 PM) Casey firing confirms NBA is a player first league. Unfortunately for the Raptors they have nobody
@  thejohnnygold : (10 May 2018 - 05:29 PM) Fair enough, but I think it speaks more to the depth Boston has and their coach. They are fortunate that the injuries occurred at the positions they did. I think an injury to Horford would have been worse for them.
@  rocketrick : (10 May 2018 - 03:12 PM) When Boston makes the Conference Finals without their 2 best players, what does that say about the Eastern Conference?
@  rocketrick : (10 May 2018 - 03:11 PM) As I recall, Rozier was far from consistent in the regular season.
@  thejohnnygold : (10 May 2018 - 01:20 PM) It's voted on by sportswriters...These are the same people who did not know Terry Rozier is very good at basketball despite the fact Boston has been trumpeting that for over a year. Outside of Zach Lowe and Woj, are there any good NBA writers out there? I'm sure there are, but I doubt they are the ones voting.
@  rocketrick : (10 May 2018 - 10:56 AM) Brad Stevens received 0 votes for 2018 Coach of the Year.
@  thejohnnygold : (09 May 2018 - 02:01 PM) I'd say we're all nervous. It's tough not to be. Watching us vs. GS last night one can see how much easier they make the game look. Our defense is going to need to find another level if we want to advance.
@  Mario Peña : (09 May 2018 - 01:19 PM) So here comes the toughest test. For the first time this year I’m a little nervous. Guys talk me out of being nervous!
@  Mario Peña : (29 April 2018 - 09:05 PM) Rockets looking good with half of game one in the books. Good to see Luc back.
@  rocketrick : (28 April 2018 - 01:18 PM) 07
@  thejohnnygold : (27 April 2018 - 07:34 PM) Yeah...I don't care for Reggie Miller much as an announcer.
@  Mario Peña : (26 April 2018 - 05:17 PM) Was it just me or did Harlan and Miller spend a large portion of the game speaking about all things Timberwolves?
@  thejohnnygold : (26 April 2018 - 04:11 AM) Freakin' Clint Capela!!!
@  Mario Peña : (24 April 2018 - 02:17 AM) That quarter was amazing! Rockets offense is back!

Why is he not playing? I admit I was down on him to start the season but he was doing great there for a while. I especially like his defense and 3 point threat.

I know some have mentioned that he plays more of a 2 style rather than a point but he dominated mpg over lin there for a bit. Now Patrick Beverly has taken over the role as of late.

Somebody mentioned he was sick. That was a couple games ago.

Maybe he is on the trade block and they want to make sure he doesn't get hurt....?

Maybe we could trade R. White to a small Euro club....don't they take trains everywhere? That might actually be a good idea....

White for Llull? Whatever happened to that guy? Signed with Real Madrid through 2018... I liked Toney too, maybe they're preserving him and showcasing Lin for a trade? I think our PGs should be Beverley and Douglas and have Lin come off the bench behind Harden, preserve James a little bit.

If we are going to do that then we should definitely trade Lin. I would rather not...I still think he can be incredibly effective...it just hasn't come together yet. I would like to see Harden play off of Lin the way Durant plays off of Westbrook. Durant realized early on that Westbrook was most effective when he initiated the offense and took more shots....that in turn helps durant. I think we can make the same thing work in Houston.
