Clippers vs Grizzlies twice this week, enough said. Grizzlies are the better team this year but I actually feel the Clippers may match up better with them WITHOUT Griffin. Big Baby is more physical and hustles more and the bench has been awesome last few games. As long as DJ and CP3 show up, Clippers should have a shot. If either vanish, goose is cooked.

I called this. WITHOUT Griffin, Clippers are playing great vs Memphis due to reasons I said. More defense, more physicality and Memphis can't pack paint and game plan for one player as much anymore. Still early and Memphis may end up blowing us out, but early on Memphis shooting 2-11.

I wouldn't go all "called it" just yet but yes the Clipper do seem to be playing much tougher and like a team without your boy Blake.

Okay if Clippers keep this up and win... this will be 5 straight wins, including 4 vs the teams fighting with them for top seeds (Rockets, Grizzlies, Spurs, Mavs). Incredibly impressive if they keep this going. It will mean they have THE best record vs the west and western conference contenders I believe? Or at least right behind GS. Their problem is the best teams in the east dominate them.

Outside of the Warriors, the Clippers are the one team I don't want the Rockets to face in the playoffs. For some reason, they just have the Rockets number. That Paul/Griffin duo has dominated the Rockets since they've joined forces. I honestly don't even look forward to facing them anymore. That game on Wednesday absolutely terrifies me.

That's a tough loss for the Spurs. I get that Utah is a tough young team, and they've always been tough to play on the road, but that game wasn't even really close. San Antonio has lost five of 10 and four of eight, but I will say that this 9-game road stretch they're on is pretty brutal, even with the All-Star break right in the middle of it.

Still, the Spurs are always that team that you keep waiting to make a huge run. And they're kind of running out of time. If they're not careful, they're liable to end up the 7 or 8 seed in the postseason and end up with a first round matchup on the road against Golden State or Memphis.

That's impressive. But I still personally feel that Hardens usage is one of the reasons Dwight was struggling, I think he needs the ball in his hands more, but that's just me. I was randomly looking up some stats the other night, checked out some stats on touches, here are some numbers for the big men in the league;

Marc Gasol - 69.4 touches per game.
DeMarcus Cousins - 69.3 touches per game.
Derrick Favors - 66.9 touches per game.
Chris Bosh - 65.2 touches per game.
LaMarcus Aldridge - 64.2 touches per game.
Al Horford - 58.6 touches per game.
Dwight Howard - 55 touches per game.




I also had a look at points per touch. Now I did put some filters on it (players who have played more than 35 games this season and average 30 minutes per game or more). Based on those filters, Harden is 9th in the league for points per touch (the number of times a player scores per time they possessed the ball). Although the time of his possessions far exceeds that of everyone else in the top 10 (most of whom I would describe as primarily off ball players). And I can't talk about that stat without mentioning Klay Thompson leads the league in points per touch ;)

The other thing that I found interesting were the driving stats. Harden is 5th in drives per game. But ALL of the people above him are hitting a lesser percentage, 3 out of the other 4 are hitting a much lower percentage only Lawson comes close. And in the top 10 for drives per game only three people shoot a better percentage, LeBron James, Damian Lillard and Tony Parker.

Top 5 in the league for points per 48min on drives are; Wroten, LeBron, Harden, Westbrook and Teague. Harden shoots better on drives than all of them except LeBron.

What Harden is doing this year offensively is exceptional, flopping and "selling" fouls aside (not worth arguing about), he's really been uber aggressive and it's paid off.

Minutes have a huge part to do with Dwight's lack of touches and the fact that he can't be relied on to score. He's rather one dimensional when scoring while you have Bosh, Gasol, Cousins, Aldridge, and Horford being able to score at multiple areas of the game. Simply put, Dwight isn't really someone you can pass to who can make an impact. It's like DeAndre. He'll dunk it, recheck it, and the simple stuff but you can't really give it to him as the go-to-guy.

Fair point, but I was thinking back to his Orlando days and him passing out the post to the shooters. I see no reason Dwight can't get his 15PPG up to his career average of 18 and 12. Might not seem like a huge difference but just having him as a bigger threat and using him more would really help Houston and in particular Harden, get even better looks.

I know nobody cares about The Pistons... but Reggie Jackson had a decent game for us in his first appearance. You can see how bad the kid wants to succeed... he was hyperventilating and actually threw up on the sidelines when he was having a bad first half, but he stepped up big in the second half. Having him on the floor was great for KCP who shot well for us. We have a tough schedule coming up, so I won't proclaim we are making the playoffs this year but the future looks bright for us finally.

Pistons are one of THOSE teams. Celtics, Pistons, Pacers, Jazz, etc... can't be taken lightly at all, specifically when they're at home.

Pistons got a good shot at beating the Cavs tonight. Drummond always abuses us when he play against us, and if Reggie Jackson has a good game we could take a L.

Yeah, I feel OKC is a top five team in the league when healthy. I mean, they probably would have the best record right now if not for injuries. We've lost KD/Westbrook for so many games, they clearly aren't 100%, and we've managed to still be in contention for the third seed? I expected us to make the playoffs but we've done really well so far. If we play vs GSW, I'm more than confident we could take them on. As for Atlanta, this stuff happens all the time. A team goes red hot and seems better than they really are. I never bought into them. Which is also why Cavs will be in the ECF. They are too good for East right now.

Right but outside of two players they still have diddly squat.

I'm just wondering why you chose them and not San Antonio, Portland, Dubs etc to be afraid of. They all have teams that are way more balanced (and imo, better TEAMS)

The only teams in the West that worry me are Memphis and San Antonio. I'm still not convinced Dubs can beat either of them in a seven game series. I mean it could happen I'm just of the opinion we would not be favourites to win those series.

OKC? Meh. I think we would win a series against them. Amazing as Durant is. Especially with HCA.

And I don't see why Memphis should be scared of them. But hey that's just me, maybe you're right. All about match ups I suppose.

Fair enough. I thought you picked them because of a more analytical reason. Something they exploit in your defensive sets or match up issues etc.

If it's just because they have Durant then fair enough. I don't get it personally, OKC dont worry me in the slightest, but each to their own.

I think we can best the spurs, grizzlies, suns, and anyone else out west in 5 games at our best. OKC can more than beat anyone in the league, they can make it look easy.

You must not have watched him play much in the last few weeks. He's been huge for the Rockets with Dwight out. In his last 10 games, he's averaging 14/8/4/1/1 on 46% in only 28 minutes a night.

mightybosstone
02-25-2015, 11:42 PM
Of all the games the Rockets have won this season, that one might have been the biggest. No Dwight. Bad game for Harden. And they've lost seven straight to LA and 11 of their last 12. They gain an extra game edge on both Dallas and the Clippers as well as Portland or San Antonio, and they could feasibly even get a game close to Memphis should Sacaramento hold on.

But more importantly, that gives Houston a little confidence against a team that has completely had their number for the last three years. I was pretty much counting this as a loss before the game even started...

Their D-League call up rookie who is playing out of position. They are siccing him out there as a tall PG but long term, that doesn't appear plausible. Still, in the mean time, why not try and up his trade value, see if any GM still thinks like the Lakers do.

Fair enough. I thought you picked them because of a more analytical reason. Something they exploit in your defensive sets or match up issues etc.

If it's just because they have Durant then fair enough. I don't get it personally, OKC dont worry me in the slightest, but each to their own.

Not worrying me doesn't mean they can't beat us. Anyone in the West can beat anyone. I'm just saying I think we have just as good a chance at beating them as they do at beating us. Whereas in comparison, I think SAS and Memphis have a better chance at beating us than we do at beating them.

With OKC it's 50/50.
With Spurs and Memphis it's like 70/30 or 60/40 at best.

Oh and I never said I "expect" a first round exit from Cleveland. I said I didn't see them reaching the conference finals. That they might not get out of the second round and I wasn't sold on them like others are. I also said if they face the Hawks they would be torn apart. And that I would be happy to be proven wrong.

Not that I wanna get back into it with you, but usually when you say a team doesn't "worry you in the slightest", that's an indication that you feel you'll beat them easily. Not that there's a 50/50 chance.

Statements like that is why people come at your words. It just sounds like you're backpedaling when you say, "Oh I'm not saying they can't beat us I actually think it's even".

Just letting you know others perspectives, that's all.

Why should any dubs fan feel like Cleveland has anything but a "punchers chance" as we would say in boxing. Any team can beat any team any random day, but the dubs are superior record wise, roster wise on paper, statistically, and have great chemistry with a core that has been intact for several seasons. Saying they have "no chance" may be technically incorrect, but it's alot closer to reality than saying the series would be 50/50. The only thing that would change my mind or gooses is seeing otherwise. If they beat the warriors I will come eat crow, until then, no reason to worry about a fringe playoff team like the cavs.

Cavs defense looking soft in the middle. I'd be okay with the Dubs putting up 33 just from jump shooting but they're getting too many baskets around the rim.

We're still cool, we've been missing our outside shots but have been getting to the line. Curry about to go to the bench and if Thompson isn't hitting jump shots like crazy we should see the Cavs take the lead in the 2nd.

"James!.. - airball- -literally no comment - ... having a fantastic quarter!". They have their agenda right now of LBJ having a legendary game and they want to adhere to it.

Cavs attacking hard and Warriors fouling hard. They're playing super tight bumping defense on the perimeter and are whining (at least Green is) when they get a foul called.

Cavs are up but any run can swing things. Lots of time left.

Interesting to see if kyrie comes back if and when bron gets a breather.

Dubs are not out of this game.

Btw....Draymond has been a GREAT defender this year but he plays TOUGH. Gets away with lil dirty stuff but also gets whistled for some.

This is probably the first of a string of great games we're going to see from LeBron. He knows this is the toughest part of Cleveland's schedule. Might have to show the younger guys how to get it done against the best teams in a playoff-style game.

And I think he just likes reminding the world from time to time that he's the best player in the universe.

Well, they did the same for Curry. He missed a wide open layup and we didn't hear a peep. I just think James has been playing so well this game that it's really not worth mentioning an airball in a contested shot.

Exactly, thats what I'm talking about with people. When people don't like Lebron, they hold things against him that they wouldn't even think about with other players.

It feels like no lead is safe against the Warriors. They can erase a big deficit so quickly with their 3pt shooting. Scary.

Even though gsw are losing this game, they've never really been out of it while I felt Cleveland has gotten everything in their favor.

Dubs are making it to at least WCF unless they run into a hot spurs or durant.

Cleveland is up by 11 with 6 minutes left. Besides LeBron's offense, here's what you need to know: Curry and Klay are a combined 10-25 for 31 points. Kyrie, Shumpert, and Smith are doing a great job on the perimeter tonight. Golden State is deep, but they're not consistently going to beat good teams with the Splash Bros shooting like that.

That could change in a hurry, though. They're that good.

Its because they are not that athletic. They might have some problems against athletic agressive teams that can wear the team down, similar to OKC or Cavs.

Look at you. You talk smack all the time... One game sample size is meaningless? I bet it wouldn't be meaningless if GSW won.. Cavs aren't a playoff threat, yet, they just beat the BEST team in the league while also winning 18 of their last 20 games? Haha. The FT disparity is legitimate. Cleveland were attacking all game long while GSW settled for long range shots and missed wide open layups. Klay/Curry had poor games but if you don't think defense had anything to do with it, you're delusional. Curry can be contained. James? Good luck.

GSW fans need to give Cleveland credit here. They "won" as they should have? Seriously? We're talking about the Warriors here. You wanna talk about not being impressed? How about holding the highest scoring team to under 100 points? Cleveland didn't play well either -- which is why you SHOULD be impressed. Kyrie Irving was off. Love realistically only had 13 points since they were well into winning already. J.R./Shump weren't scoring well. But hey, whatever floats your boat.

I think the team, outside splash bros, actually looked pretty good. LOTS of GREAT looks, just weren't going down. Not 3's either, but in and around the paint, some mid range jumpers.

Curry and Klay looked flat, I think the other guys played really well.

Different outcome based on what exactly? Why is it so difficult to acknowledge that Cavs played better? You don't think Cleveland just outplaying GSW had something to do with why GSW didn't win?

It's just not a surprising outcome. The Cavs were 3.5 point favorites and it wasn't a line I was willing to touch. Kerr is simply unwilling to play any of our guys heavy minutes in the reg season and while I respect that with our record, it doesn't bode well against top opponents, especially at the end of road trips.

Like I said, I wasn't especially impressed by Cleveland. They did what it took, but they did not play amazing. It was a pretty flat game.
