@  2016Champions : (25 October 2014 - 06:04 AM) I'm a little hyped right now, holding myself back from going full retard.
@  2016Champions : (25 October 2014 - 06:03 AM) Call me crazy but I think if Rockets get the Thunder in the 1st round, then the Spurs in the 2nd, that would be more ideal than any road to the finals where Terrence Jones will be guarding the likes of Blake Griffin, Aldridge, Lee, Dirk, Zbo ect.
@  2016Champions : (25 October 2014 - 05:59 AM) Jeremy who? Lol
@  thejohnnygold : (25 October 2014 - 02:25 AM) That was definitely an awesome way to finish the game
@  Willk : (25 October 2014 - 02:22 AM) im on the canaan bandwagon
@  Losthief : (25 October 2014 - 12:43 AM) Keep Gettin Them CHecks All-Star!
@  Buckko : (24 October 2014 - 03:57 AM) That's an understatement Cooper.
@  rockets best... : (24 October 2014 - 01:16 AM) Nash should have quit 4 years ago
@  Cooper : (24 October 2014 - 01:15 AM) suns really sold high on him.
@  Willk : (24 October 2014 - 12:03 AM) sad to see nash's career end like this
@  cointurtlemoose : (23 October 2014 - 07:16 PM) Philly "doing it right" is a catch-22 when doing it right is completely sacrificing competitiveness for almost entire seasons. I see what you're saying, and it's not Philly's fault.
@  2016Champions : (23 October 2014 - 05:59 PM) I need more to go on to write something up. Just brainstorming right now. Monroe is more of a defensive plus at the 4 than the 5; I think the reason he played the 5 early on his because he couldn't shoot--no longer the case.
@  08huangj : (23 October 2014 - 12:28 PM) He just doesn't seem like a four to me, he started his career as a center. I also don't think that he'd be happy to be a backup and what does a very reasonable price mean. Maybe you can create a thread.
@  2016Champions : (23 October 2014 - 10:14 AM) Monroe would not only improve our starting 4 spot but also serve as a backup center.
@  2016Champions : (23 October 2014 - 10:12 AM) Should we go after Greg Monroe? He seems to have improved his midrange shot, and considering the likelihood he walks, we might be able to acquire him for a very reasonable price.
@  Buckko : (23 October 2014 - 04:31 AM) I have no problem with philly tanking. If you're gonna do something, do it right. They should be an extremely entertaining team in a few years.
@  Willk : (23 October 2014 - 01:23 AM) 2016 - I agree. I would rather see Canaan play than Ish
@  2016Champions : (23 October 2014 - 01:19 AM) Isaiah Canaan seems to get better with every game.
@  cointurtlemoose : (23 October 2014 - 12:09 AM) That said, Philly is ridiculous. It's entertaining on a level, but it's also out of hand. I was for the reform with the proposed percentages they voted on today. Surprised it didn't pass.
@  cointurtlemoose : (23 October 2014 - 12:08 AM) I think it's interesting Mr. Rick. It's kind of a give and take to me. I'm totally okay with teams intentionally going through a 'rebuilding' phase, and I don't think you want to erase that too much with something like the wheel idea.

GET PSYCHED!

If you are a true Rockets fan, you understand that regardless of present situations and/or squads, Utah is the devil. They are the Challenger/Columbia to our Rockets.

Our LA to our BOS

Our Tonya to our Nancy Kerrigan!!

The Rockets are up by 34 points with one quarter to go. The Rockets offense is being executed perfectly especially since the defensive effort is there. Fast break points advantage Rockets 26 to 2 right now.

I know great game, everything is flowing and the starters can just sit down and enjoy the 4th. Even Anderson is coming on with 8 minutes to go, first time he gets more than a minute in a rockets uniform. Even Lin hit a three and the 4s are 11-18 as I am writing this. Morris 4-6 beyond the arc. And big O has 19 rebounds. I hope he keeps it up and get the rebounding title.

When Lin plays the point, the Rockets win. Not really sure what the experiment was about with Harden running the point during the losing streak.

45 points!!!!! biggest home loss in franchise history for Utah! bboley, you must be excited, huh?

The best part, for me, besides the great win, was to see Motie play good minutes :D

AWESOME WIN!

Don't really understand the Lin playing point comment because I saw Harden initiate offense as well as Parsons while Lin parked it out on the three point line. I agree with something the Jazz play by play and color guy spoke about. They said when the Rockets get the ball up court quickly the defense is not set and Rockets set their picks, start rolling and create space so that the defense never has a chance and that was executed perfectly tonight. When the Rockets are pushing the ball up court quickly it doesn't matter who pushes the ball up, what matters is that they space properly and it helps when they are knocking the three's down of course.

It was a great one Ale! Agreed as well on Motie except for that first shot he had which looked pretty bad but was probably due to nervous energy.

Great game for the rockets. Mchale needs to stay with what is winning. No need to start changing things. This team is better when Lin is at the point. Harden will get his chances within the flow of the game to play the point, but I like the ball movement when Lin is handling the ball. Harden seems to hold the ball longer and it slows the offense down. The Jazz is a good team at home. Again, I said it before this team has a lot of talent, but Mchale must allow them to play.

Im right there CHichos.... I don't think anyone outside of the Rockets front office and diehard fans realize the hatred for Utah. I still have nightmares of stockton knocking down that three.

Got to give the coaching staff a big pat on the back for this one. The game plan of using Lin as a hard double whenever Jefferson touched the ball in the post was inspired. Really destroyed the Jazz's rhythm given the lack of scoring elsewhere on the court, and you could see right from the start that unless Utah could keep hitting three pointers (IIRC they started 3 of 4) they were going to be toast. People seem to like to slam McHale's coaching acumen from time to time, but he thoroughly out-coached Corbin tonight. A lot of the time when a coach prepares a nuance like that they'll only throw it out there once or twice, but McHale just said "we'll do it until you demonstrate you can beat us consistently", and the Jazz never did.

Also, was it just me or was the crowd really quiet right from the beginning of that game (I mean, it makes sense that they were quiet at the end...)? Maybe the nearby weather had something to do with it, but over the telecast it didn't feel like the oppressive atmosphere I'd usually associate with SLC.

But ST, how much of that was also due to a lapse in Corbin's judgment? He never really adjusted anything last night, did he?

McHale or not, we have to give credit to the players for not settling at any time with a comfortable lead. They kept going with the momentum and that must be a huge confident boost for the team as a whole, let's hope they can translate it into better chemistry, great plays, and of course, if possible, more wins.

I love beating utah period. we can never pile on to much for me. they may not be the utah of old, but they are still utah. I have to disagree with those who want to throw praise on mc hale for the win. he didn't make any decisions that were rocket science, granted he didn't put his foot in his mouth either. there was no need for a bunch of coaching because the jazz couldn't buy a shot with all the gold in fort knox.

you know, i was mulling this the whole time. how much praise does mchale deserve? how much blame? we have to always be wary of giving praise that isn't deserved (something any coach would have done), but also be careful not to give unwarranted criticism. it'd be unfair if every mistake is mchale's fault, but every boon just luck or expected of any coach. that'd be an impossible standard to meet. the reverse would be unfair as well, in the sense that he'd be judged too favorably.
