Douglas seems too content to dominate the ball. I don't like it.
That one stretch for Harden was disgusting. He drilled a three and when the Pistons answered on the other end, he drove the length of the floor, split two defenders and laid it in. 13 points, 5 assists, 2 boards and 1 block in 13 minutes... :drool:
Harden is getting hacked like crazy
Lin to Harden!!!!! hoping to see this more through the season
Hardin is showing his worth, gotta love it.
Man whats with these calls.... Harden is getting hacked at.
what a pass by parsons
Defensively, this team leaves something to be desired. But this team has SO much potential offensively. The pick and roll opportunities with Lin and Asik have paid off multiple times, and Lin, Harden and Parsons are such excellent passers that they seem to get open shots and find open guys on every possession. Even Morris has gotten good looks, although I'd much rather have Patterson or Jones in the starting lineup.
stats so far:
Lin - 6 pts on 50% shooting / 5 assists / 3 steals
Harden - 19 pts on 61% shooting / 3 reb / 5 assists
Asik - 8 pts on 100% shooting / 4 reb / 1 block
looking good so far... hopefully they can keep it up!
Does Cook always look this bad?
why have we not seen jones yet morris is just horrible
I think the problem is that they don't have Patterson in this game. Because when Asik goes to the bench, Morris and Smith are just two undersized defensively and they're getting killed in the paint. Most of Detroit's success has been on the perimeter, though, so you can't kill Houston too much for that. But when Asik is on the floor, they're clearly a much better defensive team.
