@  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?

McHale was a deuche as a player, as an exec in Minnesota, and as a coach there and now here. I can't imagine his tenure here should be viewed as anything other than a bridge to some plan for the future that hasn't yet become clear. A man's man? The continual schooling by the T'Wolves was the most telling fact of this season. I can't wait until he is gone.

I hate the celtics, but McHale had a great playing career.
Also, say what you may about McHale with the Wolves, he knew when to tank. He might have been horrible, but tanking led to high draft picks as far back as Kevin Garnett and even Ray Allen.
On the Rockets however, probably due to Morey- he can't tank and can't win.
So we r stuck in mediocrity

    I'll say one thing - I don't remember the last time I saw one coach completely dominate the other--while having equal talent--before this season's Rockets-Wolves series.

    Nicely written my good man, but I think McHale would get a "D", I just don't believe he knows what he is doing.

      I do think it is interesting.
      My perception was that Adelman was let go because Morey wanted a coach that would let younger players play so that Morey could try to find super star talent on the cheap.

      McHale being a former player and routinely regarded as a hard ass seemed an odd choice to fill that option.

      Based on the current year I would say that we have taken a step back by replacing Adelman with McHale. It is possible Morey and McHale have an understanding about the upcoming year and Marcus Morris will be given his shot become a monster after his year of learning what the NBA is about and all will be well.

      It just seems unlikely :(
