he turned down the shots. He was wide open and at that time Joe Johnson was hot. Livingston has been a god send for the Nets. If anything I agree on Anderson taking dumb shots.

There is no argument about JJ the guy is on fire and should take shots, but Teletovic received 3 passes in 9 minutes of play he didn't turn down any shots, i know i said 2 before but i just remembered he got one more post up before he got subbed. Teletovic is not even a 5th option on that team they have him set screens and run in to a corner,he can do much more than that.

He had his touches, he turned down 2. Then he was getting abused on the D. Kidd had to sit him after that.

I actually they are moving the ball well tonight. They have 88 pts on 26 assists. Com'on homie.

Dude... You have no ****ing clue what you're talking about. Motiejunas showed range in international play, but he's been absolutely ice ****ing cold from the 3-point line since he's come into the NBA. He's a 25% 3-point shooter in the NBA. He's shooting well tonight and he's been playing a lot better lately, but one good shooting night does not a great shooter make.

Don't watch one half of basketball and act like you know what the **** you're talking about. I've watched nearly ever minute Motiejunas has played in the NBA, and this is by far the best shooting night he's ever had. You don't know more about this team or its players than I do, and you certainly don't know more than their coaching staff does.

he has the ability to shoot, post, rebound, yet YOUR coach. Your horrible coach Kevin McHale limits him. He can't get any burn, and he stays inconsistent b/c of that.

Grammatical errors aside, you need to just calm down. You're overreacting over one game. Terrence Jones flat outplayed him last season and in the offseason and earned his spot as the team's starting PF. He's been better in literally every aspect of the game. D-Mo has played better lately with Greg Smith and Omer Asik out with injuries, but both of those guys are better defensive players.

I like D-Mo's game, and I really hope he continues to develop into a good NBA player. But don't pretend the guy is a superstar who just isn't getting minutes. Because I assure you that he's not. In fact, he's looked absolutely atrocious at times on the floor.

Maybe you don't understand how professional sports work, but if you're a playoff team, you don't play a young player if he's playing like crap and hurting your team. It's not worth your team's success to give one guy more minutes.

so how can you judge his full game and not blame the inept coach for this? This is the same guy who is pushing a 3 PG line up b/c he doesn't have any faith in his most efficient PG.

What the hell are you talking about? Motiejunas was not better than the Rockets small ball lineup last year. I know. I saw. He wasn't good. You don't believe me? Then I don't know what to tell you, because you're just so very, very wrong.


so how can you judge his full game and not blame the inept coach for this? This is the same guy who is pushing a 3 PG line up b/c he doesn't have any faith in his most efficient PG.
I have no ****ing clue what you're talking about. the bottom line is that Motiejunas didn't play because Motiejunas wasn't good enough to get minutes. He's been playing better lately, so he's been getting more minutes. It's common sense. I don't know how to simplify it any further for you to understand it.

The man started 14 games last season an played crap. He got out played on the glass, turned it over in the post, had one post move that never worked and was atrocious defensively. How many chances do you want to give someone. As I said your being tricked. I was in the same sinking ship as you are in last season. It's alright, you don't have to go down with.

mightybosstone
01-17-2014, 12:21 AM
The Rockets can buy a bucket this quarter, but they're doing a good enough job defensively to keep the lead. Harden should have gotten two free throws on that transition foul, but that's no excuse. They're not getting great shots right now and they're not hitting the ones they're getting.

It has been so frustrating, because the Rockets are doing things well and just not making layups. If you penetrate and get position under the basket, you should start making shots. They're just not. And even worse, they're missing any decent perimeter look they're getting. It's a miracle they're still in this game at all considering how bad they've been offensively in the second half.

A lot of feelings tonight. But again, it wasn't more than 48 hrs. ago or so how Rockets fans were saying they don't need Deron Williams, they can make it just fine w/ what they have. Yet here is Dwight telling you he needs a PG he can count on. And whether that's Lin or not, McHale doesn't allow him to be that. McHale doesn't have faith in him, so he goes to guys like Brooks or Beverley who can spot up 3 every once and a blue, don't know how to pass the ball into the post and before you know it you lose leads.

But again Houston is just fine. The Rockets are contenders. :rolleyes:

I was very disappointed in Dwight and McFail. I thought Dwight was on a small roll, but it shows that when hes against the better teams in the league, he always falls short.

Mcfail I expect to suck. Rockets were up double digits near half and then his team completely fades away after the break. I really don't know what he said to them, but he clearly is out of his element. Hes not use to managing good players (good not great). Managing teams in small markets that never live up to their billing is more his forte.

Without a doubt. But he does have a legit claim about Dwight not getting better since his Orlando days. I still think he's a top big, but his body just doesn't look the same as it did in Orlando. That's what's most concerning to me. He looked 20lbs heavier in his Orlando days.

That's just tragic. And he keeps going to that weak short armed left tear drop.

McFail is quite possibly the worst coach in the NBA. His method is simple, 1 on 1 basketball and then swing it to an open 3 pt. shooter, nearly the same D'Antoni method. Only difference is they have guys that can drive in Lin and Harden and they don't set up any plays for them. I don't see one set play for Lin back door or Parsons. It's always a 3. And when Lin doesn't hit 3's, he hits the bench and has Brooks playing over him, who is the black hole at the 3pt line and completely gets pissed on offensively by opposing guards.

While this happens Dwight never gets the ball in the right spot and it's just wig split central.

Embarrassing loss for Houston. In the Knicks game, Melo scored almost as many points by himself in one quarter than the Rockets did in an entire half. :laughing:

Glad the Thunder started playing defense. Was yelling at the screen every time they gave up an open three. Was really pleased with the way they came out at the half. Great game for Ibaka.

And I agree with Chuck. Dwight is good, but not great, and Houston isn't a true contender. They are close, though. They just need one more piece.

That's Dwight Freaking Howard. Not Tyson Chandler or Kenyon Martin, already off the bat there is a big issue.

The fact Dwight doesn't have a PG that can make an entry pass, that's another big issue.

So all in all, I posed this question before. Are the Rockets going to let Terrance Jones come between them getting a legit PG? You already know your coach is a joke. And Dwight needs help.

I would first fire Mcfail. Then trade Dwight's *** in the summer to truly build around Harden. What really separates Dwight from the rest of the top Cs? I've seen Tyson Chandler make an impact against GREAT teams. Dwight gets completely stopped by them and needs to beat up the weak teams to pad his stats.

[QUOTE=KniCks4LiFe;27814213]He didn't even play tonight. Hey I'm not the one saying your coach is inept. I'm not the only pointing out how he has no faith in Jeremy Lin at all (http://houston.culturemap.com/news/sports/12-26-13-jeremy-lin-exerts-his-will-rockets-coach-kevin-mchale-forced-to-treat-guard-like-a-star/).

None

You can't have faith in someone who's not aggressive in the half court who continues to turnover the ball . Who doesn't understand how to move without the ball . Who can't read defenses . Who sucks on off ball defense . For heaven sake did you watch Lin interview? The guy didn't know what hit him. He said he played hard ? Lol Lin hasn't been traded yet because no one wants him they see what I see .
