@  jorgeaam : (04 July 2015 - 03:48 AM) I don't get it, a troubled organization gets a troubled player, it has the potential to create chaos
@  Mario Peña : (04 July 2015 - 03:03 AM) The Kings got Rondo, ha!
@  cointurtlemoose : (04 July 2015 - 01:37 AM) Hahaha, the Kings have been part of what's made it so fun!! (for everyone else, that is...)
@  jorgeaam : (04 July 2015 - 01:31 AM) Not for the Kings :P
@  cointurtlemoose : (04 July 2015 - 01:06 AM) FA has been fun!!!!
@  cointurtlemoose : (04 July 2015 - 01:05 AM) Also, Mavs recovered nicely with DJ. Not sure how valuable Matthews will be after his injury. The Clippers are an interesting situation now. If they can reprogram Stephenson, and get like Koufos, then they could still be pretty good
@  cointurtlemoose : (04 July 2015 - 01:02 AM) I think these Bev/Brewer contracts are really dang good for us. If we get 2013 Beverly even for just 50% of his contract length, 6/yr, with the new cap, is a steal. Same with Brewer.
@  majik19 : (04 July 2015 - 12:27 AM) Calvin Watkins reported: "Rockets believe odds of getting LaMarcus Aldridge are stronger after the Beverley and Brewer deals. Rockets can do a sign-trade for him." Still find it super unlikely
@  majik19 : (04 July 2015 - 12:13 AM) these contracts are going to be very, very tradeable.
@  jorgeaam : (03 July 2015 - 11:25 PM) Bev is baaaack, 4 years 25 Mil
@  jorgeaam : (03 July 2015 - 11:08 PM) So the headbands might be back after all
@  majik19 : (03 July 2015 - 10:22 PM) i think that's very fair for Brewer given that Afflalo also got 8 mil/yr and Kyle Singler (????) got 5/yr
@  txtdo1411 : (03 July 2015 - 10:11 PM) 3 yrs/$24 Million for Brewer. Considering some of the contracts players have received this off-season, I like it.
@  txtdo1411 : (03 July 2015 - 09:45 PM) So Collison is reportedly not happy with the Kings meeting with FA PGs. That could be a good plan B if we don't get Aldridge. I know it has been discussed previously, but this is the first time I've seen it reported that Collison actually might be available.
@  txtdo1411 : (03 July 2015 - 09:41 PM) No way they trade Paul. They can still be a good team, and might be able to pick up Koufus or someone similar that will still make them competitive in the West. Championship team? Probably not, but Paul isn't going anywhere.
@  Cooper : (03 July 2015 - 08:15 PM) Wonder if the clips would think about trading Paul? Probably still a playoff team but they're the only one that got significantly worse.
@  Mario Peña : (03 July 2015 - 07:55 PM) I dunno, I think for the Cavs 16 is fine for Thompson but maybe not other teams. Looks like the Mavs are getting Jordan which I don't really like but may be okay now that I think about it. The Clippers get worse and the Mavs prolong the inevitable and will still be a fringe playoff team.
@  majik19 : (03 July 2015 - 07:01 PM) 16 mil a year IS way too much for Tristan Thompson. and 12 mil/yr on the surface seems reasonable to me, but if the "slow footed big man" is going extinct (re: Andrew Bogut in the Finals), then that may be a terrible contract
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 July 2015 - 04:19 PM) And cmon, Josh, just look at that franchise right now. You don't wanna go there...
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 July 2015 - 04:17 PM) It's pretty crazy, I have to reprogram my brain on what is and isn't a good contract. Though I still think 12/year for Asik and 16/year for Tristan Thompson are way too much

It is interesting to notice that PPG of guards of both teams are about 38 points.

The Rockets are best when they play as a team. I didn't see a lot of that in Houston's losses. J-Lin has stepped his game up and became less tentative, Parsons has been shooting lights out and Harden started making the right basketball play which might have decreased his point total, but it's increased the wins. This game and the game against the Jazz is the model of playing offense. Now if only they could be better on defense as a team.

Loved the little bit of the game I caught on ESPN2. Wish I could have caught the whole thing.

Can't read much into this anomaly of a game, but don't you think this is what Morey sees in his head when envisioning the execution of his plans?

Of all the stats from this game the best one is turnovers. Lin and Asik each had 2 and Harden had 1. Keep it up guys.

Also nice to see the bench get some run and do well. If those guys (particularly Anderson, D-Mo, and Beverley) can contribute 10-15 solid minutes per game by season's end...we can be giant killers come playoff time.

Probably not what they imagined, but it is what was constructed. All of our PFs are 3-capable by design, from what I gathered, to extend the opposing D. Makes the pick 'n roll that much more effective.

What a shooting night, though! Everything was dropping for the Rox,a nd I'm glad I could witness it (considering I just got Season Pass on Monday).

I was a bit irked by Marc Jackson's post game interview. If he was "old school", then he should be aware that (a) this was a historic moment, and (b ), no one will remember who the Rox dropped 24+ treys on in a few months. I understand the logic, but I don't agree with the methodology. Meh to MJ.

Here's hoping the SAME THING HAPPENS next week. :)

I think Marc Jackson did the right thing...don't necessarily like the flagrant foul his player committed....but it was obvious the Rox were solely trying to beat the record...not just play...and he has every right to prevent that. Records like that only have meaning if they are earned in the context of real game play. Any team could set the record if they wanted to just by hoisting threes to no end...they would probably lose the game...but they'd get the record!
