@  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?

    I don't know if anyone else saw this, but I was looking at the ESPN rumors and this came up:

    Rockets trade in the works?

    3:20PM ET

    Houston Rockets

    Posted Image
    According to this tweet by Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld.com, the Rockets may have a deal in the works to trade Samuel Dalembert and "possibly the No. 16 pick" of the draft.
    Who the Rockets are dealing with is unclear at this point, so we don't know what will be coming back in return. But this is something we'll continue to monitor, and we'll let you know when we hear more.
    The Lakers are one team rumored to be wanting to move into the first round (some have suggested to select Baylor forward Perry Jones III), but he may not be available at No. 16, so it very well could be another team looking to deal with the Rockets.

    If it's the Lakers than the only think I can think of that makes that work and makes sense for the Rockets is Dally, Lowry, 16 for Gasol. But I'm not sure if the Lakers would do that. I really can't think of another team that would want Dally and then maybe a 16th pick and would give the Rockets anyone worth anything. Only thing I can think of is that he is included with other people but they just don't know who

    The other day i was randomly reading the Grizzlies Forum and saw something interesting . On the site , they stressed what the Grizzlies need improvement in and what they need to aquire .The site stated that the Grizzlies need Backup Bigs and an efficient 3 point shooter . Well why not offer them this :

    Grizzlies get : Samuel Dalembert , 16th pick
    Rockets get : Oj Mayo

    With Dally , they get a big body and a pretty decent big man for a backup , who will block shots and protect the paint . And with the 16th pick they can draft a pure three point shooter (perhaps John Jenkins) , which will space the floor for them to allow more room for Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol to operate .This trade would make sense for both teams as this would fill the holes the Grizzlies have and would also upgrade our SG position over Courney Lee

    something wrong with your plan amacbrooks:
    I don't think you can sign and trade a restricted free agent
    Also, Memphis has a ton of big men- Randolph, Gasol, Hadadi, Speights, Cunnigham, Darrel Arthur.
    And sometimes they play Rudy Gay or Pondexter at the 4 so as to play the trio of Mayo, Conley and Tony Allen.

    The Grizzlies tho would have been the perfect trade partner if they had a high draft pick because they seem to have adquate starters at each position and do not have intense need for a rookie, however their pick is way lower than ours.

    If the Rockets want OJ Mayo, they will have to overpay and hope the Grizzlies do not match, but we all know Morey wants to drive a hard bargain. Plus two other teams need him more desperately than us and might make desperate moves- Indiana and Chicago.

    Sorry it was just an idea , and I forgot Mayo was restricted . But other than the Grizzlies & Lakers I dont know any other team that would have interest in Dalembert .

    It may not be interest in Dalembert that a team wants. It's more than likely the pick and the money a team can save by acquiring Dalembert and buying out his contract since only 1.5 mil of his 6.7 mil contract is guaranteed next season. A team can unload a veteran making the same amount (Morey has been looking to trade a draft pick for a solid veteran) and then buyout Dalembert and save the 5.2 mil. I'm sure there are quite a few teams that wouldn't mind saving that type of money and get a 1st round draft pick as well.

      Wouldn't be shocked if Morey and Toronto had talked.
      Lowry,Dally,the #16 for #8,#37,Calderon.
      Not as THE trade,but as a back-up.(Thinking being it gives Rockets a solid back-up,who's on last yr of contract-and could be moved in a Trade Deadline deal as a big expiring contract. And being able to draft C they want.)

      if #8 is high as the rockets can get I say don't trade lowry or our picks. seems to me that the same group of players will be available at #8 that might be available at #14

        From what I have seen the Rockets may not be interested in the #8. It seems they want a top 5/6 or they're willing to stick with the 14 and 16.

        if that's what they are doing then very good thinking. it shows they have not lost focus and continue to poise themselfs for a blockbuster move. I know its not the popular move to some people, but its the wise move
