    Houston @ Milwaukee

    Interesting game to see how asik goes coming back from injurery. Also Garcia might see limited mins tonight. That leaves greg smith as the only inactive player I think.

    Asik looked rusty but promising, offense looked good. Defense was not good.

    Was unable to catch the 1st quarter. Anything I should know about after 1 quarter of play?

    Nothing much, asik looked solid, defense looked bad, bevs and Lin both playing well.

    This game is a perfect example of why the rockets need another defender. Offence has been good, defence has been really bad

    Horrible 4th all around. If I said it once, I have said it a million times, the rockets are in desperate need of a defensive specialist. At the moment, bevs and Howard are the only ones interested in playing d.

    Wow that was scary. We got the win and that's all that matters. Time to move on.

    I didn't get a chance to watch this one, but I was following it on my phone most of the night. Obviously you would have liked to see a bigger win margin, but any win on the road is a good win. Plus, they keep the win streak alive and kept pace with Portland and San Antonio, who both won close games tonight. Harden's 1-9 from the 3-point line and 5 turnovers is a little concerning. Also, I noticed Lin fouled a 3-point shooter with a 6-point lead with 40 seconds left, which made me lose my ****ing mind in my car driving home. McHale REALLY needs to go over the whole "not fouling 3-point shooters late in close games or really EVER" thing, because Houston has been doing it way too much lately.

    Regardless, it's nice to have Asik back in the rotation, and it's always nice to start off a long stretch of road games with a win. Hopefully they can beat Minnesota and Washington to close out the season pre-All Star Break and then start that road trip with fresh legs.

    I'd also like to see them add someone who can really pound the glass. The Rockets were not only outrebounded 47-38 tonight, but they gave up 14 ****ing offensive rebounds. That's inexcusable. I didn't watch the game, but I'd love to know how many second chance points they gave up in this game.

    After the near debacle in Dallas about 10 days ago you would think McHale would have already addressed the fouling of 3-point shooters late in the game. Just another example of where our coaching is not on par with the best in the league. McHale will not be let go, but I think he is incapable of leading a team to a championship. I have little confidence with him on the bench in the playoffs against the better coaches in the league. We will lose the tight-knit games against playoff teams.

    This is an interesting topic. We give up 12.4 offensive rebounds a game, which ranks 29th in the league. But at the same time we're 8th in the league with 44.9 rebounds a game (4th counting only defensive rebounds). And we actually rank 7th allowing rebounds (6th best differential in the league). Problem is teams attempt almost 90 shots a game against us, and when Howard is on the bench (and Asik was out), you will have an undersized guy playing the 5. Things should change with Asik back and healthy.

    Anyway, 5 wins in a row, and a very favorable schedule until the end of the month, even though most of the games are on the road. I'm feeling really good about this team right now.

    It has more with Lin just making a dumb play rather than Mchale. Plays like that are more often than not the players fault, not the coach

    Sure, the player has fault in this, but it is up to the coach to discuss this and remind the players of the situation. What happened in Dallas was pathetic and I still place much of the blame on coaching for the same thing happening again.

    Those are just dump plays, made by the players. Not at all McHale's fault. You can blame him for a lot of things, but not this. Every player must know you shouldn't foul a shooter, and every professional player also muct know how not to. Those are just young players doing young players stuff. You can be sure those type of things are addressed right after they happen, like after the game against Dallas. But it will still happen when you're dealing with such young guys.
