This is what Dwight Howard came to Houston for.

James Harden will get his 30 plus, but Howard needs to be that x-factor. He said he's going to demand the ball. He better get the Shaq standard of 28-15. And HE WILL DO IT!!! I know he will. I just know it.

So apparently Dwight is gonna guard LMA in this game and Harden said he's gonna play more seriously and be more aggressive as opposed to shooting 14 3pointers.

I expect a Rockets blowout win today.

"I expect a Rockets blowout win today."

I guess everyone here is a Rockets fan..GREAT. Game 2 depends on how serious we are. We showed up to game 1 like it was still the reg. season. Houston's problem is that were a "swag" team. We score a bunch of points and look good doing it, but that doesn't always translate into Ws. I got us making it to at least the WCF, but it starts tonight.

Also if anyone is interested in free NBA playoff contests, theStlyesUnltd is hosting one until tomorrow at 6pm. Winner gets 300 dollars.

But....forcing the ball to Dwight when he's 15 feet out is generally going to be a bad idea. Gotta be a bit less shameless with it. Get it to him within the flow of things. He was getting it much lower early on vs. Robin. This isn't gonna be the optimum offense.

Was it you who said that's why he had a bad game 1 too? A game where he went to a line a ton, but just couldn't hit a shot.

I don't get what flopping has to do with him just missing shots.


He's cold. Nothing more, nothing less. He draw a TON of fouls in game one, especially.

nyyfan4life
04-23-2014, 10:33 PM
Only thing holding Houston back is bench production and themselves. They make some dumb, dumb plays from time to time and show no effort/awareness during stretches within the game. Maybe a different coach can change that.

THE MTL
04-23-2014, 10:33 PM
And this is why he is the best center in the game. When he is at his best and most aggressive no other center in the league can come close to this level.

No it wasn't me. But I do feel that ever since he went to Houston he focused more on flopping and shooting at a high clip.

He does love to embellish, no doubt. It's one of many reasons why he's so very efficient. His free throw rate is nuts.

But I was just gonna say: he missed 17 jumpers in game one, including 11 threes. Not sure what that has to do with not getting calls. He was just off. But that wasn't you, so nevermind.

nyyfan4life
04-23-2014, 10:42 PM
LMA is making tough mid range shots but Dwight is physically bullying Lopez down low. I kinda feel bad for him.

Asik's better
04-23-2014, 10:42 PM
There is nothing much more asik can do. He is slowing that pass to Aldridge and right in his face when he takes his shots. Aldridge is that good.

Chuck is right...ish.

In Orlando when we'd force-feed Dwight, it seemed like everyone else suffered and we rarely won. It's because it often was an all or nothing thing. The rest of the offense loses it's grove and rhythm when all you do is force feed it to him, like this. A happier medium is needed.

He's gotta be a big piece of the offense, not THE piece.

Dwight can't beat Portland alone plain and simple it is nice to see him aggressive. It just has to work out to the point where it doesn't hinder everyone else offensively. That seems to be the issue.

A risk I would be willing to take if they're going to keep giving him high percentage shots at the rem like that. He'll also likely sit down the stretch anyways cuz of free though shooting, so he'll get his rest.

This is what they need to do that they stopped doing in the first half when Dwight was hot: pushing the tempo. That's how they've played all season long and they went away from that because Dwight was dominant, but you can't play successfully one way all season long and then expect to do a complete 180 in the playoffs. If they're going to win this series, this is how Houston has to play.

Now back to Lin, this is what I meant last game w/ he's not ready for the moment.

You see Harden shooting brick after brick after brick after brick. There is an inner burn certain players have it, and certain don't. Lin is TOO ok w/ just Harden doing that and not snapping offensively. You can shoot bruh! you just too sidebar
