I see that Delfino was not in the game. Does anyone know why not? They really, REALLY could have used his perimeter shooting down the stretch in this one.
It came down to making big shots in the last few minutes of overtime. The Blazers did. The Rockets did not. Eventually, I think there will be fewer of these heartbreaking losses. But I just keep reminding myself that Houston has been extremely close in every game this season, that they've only been playing for a few weeks and they're probably the youngest team in basketball.
I think part of the reason Rocket fans blame the refs is because of Bill Worrell. He will say a certain player was hacked and then you see the replay and it was a clean block. He is such a homer that it has become annoying. I like Matt Bullard, but I could do without Bill Worrell.
Didn't see the game, but these close game losses are piling up. Gotta close out games like this better. Wonder what Larry Brown is up to? He could coach this team up and lay a decent foundation for the next coach.
FIFTY points in the Paint and we still lose... something is seriously wrong with that.
Make the call Daryl... make the call *points down*
Raising Jersey's first, trophies and banners next...
Douglas is a 'better defender'???
Lillard vs Lin: 3-9, 0 assists
Lillard vs Douglas: 6-9, 5 assists
Points Per Possession Allowed
Jeremy Lin – 0.71 (50th in the NBA of ALL positions, 5th for PG)
Toney Douglas – 0.87 (151st in the NBA of ALL positions)
Toney Douglass took 11 f-ing shots are you kidding me????? 2-11 and he shot the 4th most shots on the team in the game.
Everyone except Harden and Douglass shot 50% or above but I have no problem with Harden shooting 8-18 if he is still going 11-12 from the free throw line...
But really? Toney Douglass 2-11????? And most of them came in the 4th quarter or OT it felt like.
Still mad about this one
Edit:My bad Lin was 3-8, but still...
Didnt see the game, but Patterson only 2 rebounds ? His averaging 5 for the season so far, with Morris doing as much in 10 less minutes per game.
