@  thenit : (03 December 2015 - 05:38 AM) Not a complete game, but the effort was there, and voila we are at least competitive even when we arent playing well
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 December 2015 - 04:44 AM) Corey Brewer went from being absolutely horrible (whole season) to being the Corey Brewer that we all remember and love (tonight)!
@  thenit : (03 December 2015 - 03:02 AM) yep and lawson is having his bst game so far in the season
@  slick shoes : (03 December 2015 - 02:53 AM) it's crazy what happens when the rockets play defense.
@  thenit : (03 December 2015 - 01:46 AM) Not looking good after the 1st Q tonight either.
@  thenit : (01 December 2015 - 04:56 AM) It doesnt help when Bev looks like he lost a step since the surgery and now we have 2 wing defenders who can't defend. So Bev has become Lin with worse offensive skills and shooting
@  thenit : (01 December 2015 - 04:55 AM) Thought last year he finally got it by at least exerting effort and by seeing the results he will be even more willing to play a two way game. Sadly I was completely wrong, he is worse than his first year here
@  thenit : (01 December 2015 - 04:53 AM) Harden is the new Carmelo, high volume usage, scorer, with no D and effort. Will never win a championship with him
@  thenit : (01 December 2015 - 04:52 AM) Its the curse of the Kardashian clan, seriously though Harden can score 80 and it still be close because he doesn't defend. Too many times he just stands there. Not even trying, fame has gone to his head.
@  Jatman20 : (01 December 2015 - 04:08 AM) Opps....on us
@  Jatman20 : (01 December 2015 - 04:07 AM) Rockets have gone Wizard of Oz no us !! No Heart (Harden still looks heartbroken over Chloe), No courage and No Brains (Bickerstaff is less of a coach than McHale at this stage in their careers).
@  majik19 : (01 December 2015 - 03:29 AM) We should've fired Bickerstaff, not McHale. Our defense is killing us.
@  Jatman20 : (01 December 2015 - 02:54 AM) Time to go scorched earth on the Rockets roster!!
@  Cooper : (01 December 2015 - 02:28 AM) on the semi plus side Lawson doesn't look like the absolute worst player in the league.
@  Willk : (01 December 2015 - 01:29 AM) this team needs to be booed from the start of the game to the end of the game during their next home game. This effort is pathetic
@  cointurtlemoose : (30 November 2015 - 03:32 AM) A mix of really bad and really good tonight, but it was a gutsy comeback!
@  slick shoes : (30 November 2015 - 01:38 AM) that was more of a rhetorical question, but good to see you're on your game ;)
@  jorgeaam : (29 November 2015 - 08:12 PM) 7/12 shooting from the field, 8/9 from the line
@  jorgeaam : (29 November 2015 - 08:12 PM) 6, he also had 5 assists and 7 rebounds
@  slick shoes : (29 November 2015 - 05:46 PM) how many treys did Covington bury?

    Today I wrote something about Jordan Hill, and how close he teeters on the line of falling out of the league and becoming a productive player. The NBA has a constantly revolving door, and, apart from otherworldly ability, opportunity appears to be the biggest factor keeping certain guys relevant.

    Was wondering what everyone felt about Hill and the success he's had in these playoffs.

      He'll regress back to his norm next season, if not in these playoffs.

        In LA he's paired w/either Gasol or Bynum. He's basically playing his natural PF position either way and w/2 skilled 7' bigs who are the focus of the other team. In Houston he was forced to play C because there wasn't any other option.

          I never considered Hill a bust, It's been debated here before and even though while with the Rox, his PER was greater than Patterson's, his lesser usage was always chalked up to "poor positional defense" in comparison to Pat's. I disagreed basically because Hill was better at attacking the boards, and he has a penchant for playing above the rim, more so than Pat. I don't think Hill will ever be a star, but he will be a serviceable PF in this league before it's said and done. Keep in mind, he's relatively new to the game, only starting playing in HS. He got a bad rap here basically because of lack of basketball smarts, but he will learn through experience and play time. I wouldn't mention him in the same sentence as T-will and Flynn just yet.

          In other Rockets alumni news, I've spotted T-mac getting some respectable playing time with the Hawks. Poor guy still can't get to the second round though.

          LOL at sending our players to greener pastures.

          hill is doing the same thing in LA that he did here. we saw flashes of greatness here, problem was they were few and far between
