@  cointurtlemoose : (28 March 2015 - 05:23 PM) Yeah that Toronto game we are gonna be thin in the frontcourt... luckily the Raptors wouldn't give us problems like some teams would in that regard
@  08huangj : (28 March 2015 - 01:23 PM) With Dwight Howard out for one of the back to backs, the Rockets are gonna have to start Dorsey with Capela as a backup unless they go small with Josh Smith.
@  08huangj : (28 March 2015 - 01:22 PM) Did somebody else get hurt tonight? The Rockets have now lost 3 starters in 4 games.(Not counting last night.)
@  jorgeaam : (28 March 2015 - 04:53 AM) Wow, Josh Smith nearly had a triple double tonight
@  Losthief : (27 March 2015 - 11:24 PM) DMO down now too....Capela with the team.
@  Mario Peña : (27 March 2015 - 08:51 PM) Unfortunately for Durant he is out for 4-6 months and will undergo a bone graft surgery. Tough break for him and hopefully he comes back 100% next year which could potentially be his last year in OKC.
@  Losthief : (27 March 2015 - 02:21 AM) I like Llull, first i heard about him actually willing to leave spain...had almost given up on the guy.
@  majik19 : (27 March 2015 - 02:18 AM) definitely gives us some Beverly insurance should he sign elsewhere (assuming Prigioni, Terry, and McDaniels are gone next year)
@  cointurtlemoose : (27 March 2015 - 12:08 AM) Also, this would be prettyyy cool... http://hoopshype.com...ll-to-join-team
@  cointurtlemoose : (27 March 2015 - 12:06 AM) I think McHale is properly rated. This season has probably boosted him to the middle of the back. Stotts should not be higher than Vogel and Stevens, who have squeezed every drop and more out of their rosters.
@  YaoMan : (26 March 2015 - 07:48 PM) @ txt - no I don't agree with the assessment simply because of how well McHale has handled all the injuries the Rockets had. If they feel that McHale didn't orchestrate that, then Harden should be a hands down MVP when the starting 5 misses more games than any other team in the West...
@  majik19 : (26 March 2015 - 07:18 PM) I was surprised they placed Kerr at 3. I know he's having a great year, but one year does not define a coaching career. People seem to forget he inherited a 50 win team.
@  txtdo1411 : (26 March 2015 - 07:13 PM) I was pretty surprised they had Stotts at 7 as well. He has done a good job with Portland, but health (last year, not so much this season) and talent have put him in a position to succeed.
@  txtdo1411 : (26 March 2015 - 06:31 PM) You think they are correct with that assessment YaoMan? I was actually a little surprised they had Casey and Stevens ahead of him. This year McHale has shown a lot more adaptability than people thought he had in him.
@  YaoMan : (26 March 2015 - 04:50 PM) Have you seen the ESPN coach ranking lately? They have McHale at slightly better than middle of the pack: http://espn.go.com/n...ngs-top-coaches
@  YaoMan : (26 March 2015 - 04:05 PM) If the Rox can stay focus, catching Memphis is definitely a strong reality...
@  Cooper : (26 March 2015 - 02:39 AM) ended up with a nice win and the grizz dropped a game.
@  08huangj : (26 March 2015 - 12:40 AM) The rockets look dead today
@  YaoMan : (25 March 2015 - 09:03 PM) Bev out at least 7-10 days...the rotation is starting to get very thin...hopefully they all come back when playoffs start...
@  Mario Peña : (25 March 2015 - 08:22 PM) Dwight back is great news but how he recovers from the 20 minutes he ends up getting tonight is what I'm holding my breath for.

Joe Johnson out with plantar fasciitis. Very winnable, good time for us to put a streak together.

Yeah, I'd be very disappointed if the Rockets lose this game. I expect us to drop 70 by halftime and get d-mo some playing time in the second half.

I am so excited to see what new lineups we are going to throw out there. It seems like DMO forces his shots when hes out there because he doesn't get much PT. Now that he will be in the rotation, how will he react?

I HOPE DMO WILL STOP BEING SLUNG AROUND LIKE A RAG DOLL DOWNLOW.

Greg Smith is my wifey's favorite player so I hope he gets some more PT.

TJones... never impressed me.

Garcia I can already tell will tick me off. Taking any PT from parsons and delfino is blasphemous in my eyes.

NO MORE ALDRICH! YESSSSSS!!!!! My favorite move of the season. Harden was a nice move... Asik was great... but getting rid of Aldrich. A++++

Trob... (Totally just made that up) is a wild card. I don't want to get too up with him just yet. I feel like most of the people out here talk Tjones up like he's the next Tim Duncan.

BBoley, lots of stuff there. First, I am surprised that you rate Asik's acquisition above Harden's and that both are beneath Aldrich. Aldrich was part of the harden deal and had an expring contract. I would reverse your ratings.... :)

I think D-MO is still adjusting to the speed of the NBA game....he'll find the rhythm....he has a shooter's touch. I was talking with my buddy who likes sports, but doesn't study the minutia the way I do and explaining a shooter's touch....Dwight Howard was my example of someone who has none. D-mo, in my opinion does, and I am convinced he may end up being a scoring machine once it clicks for him....He will get stronger...Garnett and Durant had similar problems early on....to name a couple.

I don't think I've read any of these T-Jones comments....not sure about that.

Otherwise, I share your excitement and look forward to seeing the young guys perform....I was a fan of both Patterson and Morris, but I recognize we should ultimately be better moving forward. I hope they both do well....except when they play us. :D

Well according to Jonathan Feigen, it looks like we will not get to see any of our new acquisitions in action tonight due to late physicals for Patterson, Douglas and Aldrich on the Kings' side.

http://blog.chron.co...lay/#more-15279

With the Rockets waiting for the players dealt to Sacramento – Patrick Patterson, Toney Douglas and Cole Aldrich – to complete their physicals, the players they got back in the deal were not cleared to attend shootaround with the team Friday at Barclays Center. Thomas Robinson, Tyler Honeycutt and Francisco Garcia each arrived in Houston on Thursday and completed their physicals in time to catch a late flight to New York. With the time difference, the physical in Sacramento on Friday had not even started before the Rockets’ shootaround.

Without the benefit of a shootaround, Kevin McHale said he was unlikely to play them against the Nets.

I was trying to downplay those trades for a reason DUH! :P

Well that stinks... still like to see what our young guys can do in our rotation. Too bad we couldn't have gotten rid of that cancer in RGV.

I don't know if Royce White is a cancer. I think he's too crazy to be an undue influence on a team. Unless he starts trying to convince everybody on the team that they have mental issues.

McHale's gone with some really interesting cross-matching tonight. He's Parsons on Williams, Lin on Watson, Harden on Wallace and Delfino on Evans. I can understand the rationale because Lin has really struggled with Wililams in the past, and for the most part Williams has been kept pretty quiet. Delfino has really been struggling to keep Evans off the offensive glass, but I guess that's the price you pay for going small. Wallace really hasn't been able to exploit his size advantage on Harden, so it's worked out OK up until now (mid-way through the 3rd).

All in all, I like the rocket's defense tonight. There were gaps, and lapses, and flat out misses, but they played hard and seemed to have a plan. They truly did not respect Wallace's jumper and rightfully so. Lopez did Lopez things. Honestly, we held them to 96 (well below our average) and if we hadn't gone through a 5 minute drought mid-way through the fourth this game would not have been close at all. Most of the fourth quarter miscues were due to youth, in my opinion. Those things will disappear in time.

Lin looked stellar in the first half--he also went playground a few times in breaking down the Nets' D. Harden was cool and efficient. Delfino seems to like the new arrangement as well. If he stays hot for a while the Rox will be tough to beat. Nice game.

Oh, and everyone struggles to keep Evans off the offensive glass. I was surprised tonight to see him so assertive on offense..usually he just gives it up to D-Will after a rebound...apparently he should get back to that as he was mostly ineffective. Play to your strengths, Reggie!
