@  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?

    One year for one of the worst teams in basketball is hardly proven. Lowry and 16 really should be enough if that's the way they were looking to go.

    My thoughts exactly. That should be enough to get the deal done also.

    I like the idea of this trade! Evans seemed to be booming with talent and potential when he was drafted, but has had injury problems. This fits Morey's philosophy of Risk/Reward for players. He is a better version of T Will, but with a better head and attitude. He defends well and can take any player of the dribble. His ability to distribute will be very handy in creating plays. 16th and Lowry for Evans and the 5th would be great for both. Both fill a need, but the tough question that we would have to ask ourselves is with the fifth overall pick, do we take drummond with his potential or take Michael Kidd Gilchrist who seems to have slipped to number five on most draft boards? MKG could solidify our SF position and bring publicity for years to come. He is also proven as a player with great character and work ethic so you know what you are getting.

    I agree with Jared Allen , this trade would be beautiful . The chance to aquire Tyreke Evans and the chance to have him in a rockets uniform excites me . This leaves us with the 5th pick , and in a heartbeat i would draft Andre Drummond . The guy is a freak of nature with massive athleticism and talent , and would certainly fill our hole at the center position . I dont think we would draft MKG because we dont need any more small fowards on this team especially when we have Chandler Parsons . Besides , I think he will be going to Charlotte at #2

      This was on ESPN today. I don't know if everyone has insider so I figured I'd post it:

      • The Rockets continue to be as active as any team in the league. They would really like to move up into the top five. However, it looks like they've already turned down at least one offer to package picks Nos. 14 and 16 to get into the top 10.

      Sources say that while the Rockets want to move up because they feel the draft is really strong in the middle of the first round, they don't want to give up many assets to move up just a few spots.

      Yes, there are concerns that the Rockets won't be able to get their hands on one of the top bigs (I expect Drummond and Leonard to be off the board by then, and there's a good chance, given the Hornets' trade, that Zeller may be off the board too). However, the Rockets have other ways of adding bigs. The team will have significant cap space this summer and has its eye on restricted free agents Roy Hibbert and Omer Asik. Houston is one of those teams that will always draft the best player available, regardless of need.

      thankyou. not an insider but like the info. the team that the rockets turn down to move into the top ten is the raptors at #8, and I agree with what they done. #8 is about as good as #14 in this draft (IMO)
