Asik/Howard just isn't working. Start Casspi already.
What happened to Garcia?
I'm really starting to get tired of Harden's 19 second dribble then chuck it plays.
I know no one wants Dwight/Asik both to be out but when the only thing the Lakers could do was hit 3 pointers then just deal with it for 2 minutes before the final two minutes. Who's been afraid of Chris Kamen for the past three years? Gasol only wants to try 15 footers. Jordan Hill can't play offense.
I'm wondering when he'll be available in December if Atlanta would take Asik and one of Jones/DMo for Millsap. It would throw Horford back to Center and give them a project in either Jones/DMo because apparently they still need time. Also wondering if Greg Smith can be sufficient enough for 15 minutes a night to make it work. I don't want to lose Asik, but if Casspi and the youngs can't be trusted, there's gotta be something brewing. Let's just see how things pan out between now and then.

And btw here's GW shot by Blake, look at Nash and Lin. Do you guys think Nash fouled Lin?
Steve Blake - nice guy overall, but a total villain because he's not on our roster... it was a great catch and shoot, but damn the man, it had to be against us.
The worst part of the night - I found out I had won my center-court seat bid last night at 11pm because I had already given up on that auction 6 hours prior since 4 people outbid me by a substantial margin. Couple hundred bucks down the drain
Even with the loss, if I had been there, my voice would be completely gone this morning and I would have had a great time, but instead, my wallet's a couple Benjy's lighter, and the good guys caught an L

I couldn't post in here the night of the loss, because that **** was too painful. But suffice it to say I was furious throughout most of the game. The first quarter was an absolute abortion, and I have no idea why they're trying to force the Howard/Asik duo to start the game anymore. It isn't working, and it's killing them in the first quarter of game.
The second quarter, the Rockets clearly outplayed the Lakers, but they missed seven ****ing free throws in a row. SEVEN!!!!!! I threw a pillow across my apartment I was so mad. That was their chance to cut it to a 5-6-point deficit at halftime, but they squandered their chances and barely cut into the lead at all by the end of the quarter.
They finally got their **** together in the second half and clearly outplayed the Lakers the rest of the way. I actually thought Hack a Dwight worked well for the Rockets, because he shot 5-10 in those situations, and I'll take that more often than not. But it was the inbounds pass from Parsons to Dwight that killed the Rockets, because he missed both of those and then it was a 2-point game.
And of course they went Iso ball in the end with Harden and he missed (although he admittedly did get a pretty good look from 15 feet). Then the Rockets (again) failed to get out to the perimeter to cover an open 3-point shooter and lost a game they had no business losing. Devastating.
