View Full Version : To win tonight, Chuck and Francis must be the keys.

I think Rockets need to play pick'n'roll for Steve Francis and low post face-up drives for Chuck in order to beat Blazers. If they go to Hakeem, it will be a very long night for Rockets. Chuck needs to stay off foul trouble in defending Wallace. Carlos Rogers needs to play 3 spots and STARTING!

Obviously the Rocks lost tonight and didn't play Rogers the way you suggested. Kissof death was complaining about the last few minutes of the game when Bullard was in and guarding Steve Smith. If you were God and could change the past, what would you have done to change the situation. Would your line-up be:
SG: Mobley (or Anderson or Drew)
PG: Francis (or Mobley or Drew).
I think that we needed a three point threat at that juncture of the game. My line-up would have been:
What would you change and why?

I prefer the one with Anderson starting. "Cat" needs to come off the bench, he has more off the dribble offensive creativity than Anderson, (who is a smaller version of Pippen) in order to keep an floor leader with the second unit with players such as Drew, Bullard Wizard. The problem with "Cat" is that sometimes he act as if he is MJ or Kobe, and take some of shots that are still too difficult and too ill advised for him. But he will be a special player, who has already shown he won't back down at the big dance
Rockets' biggest problem is not player talent levels, it is the coach's ineptitude.
