    This is pretty pathetic. The team offense is setup to run up and down, shoot threes...

    Jason Terry - Don't blame the guy, he's not really a point guard but if you guard him up close or front court pressure him, he will stop the ball.

    Trevor Ariza - He's a lot better from his first stint with the Rockets... but again I wouldn't trust him handling the ball.

    Corey Brewer - Absolutely sloppy. Never should he handle the ball unless it's' a breakaway slam.

    Dwight Howard - In the post, it's much worse than Yao.

    &

    K.J. McDaniels - (same as brewer or even worse?)


    I just don't understand the type of players they have surrounded around Harden. Non shooters & if he can handle (Lawson), they can't' co-exist at the same time?

    Is coaching to blame for the issues or these players just don't fit the offensive scheme we are trying to run?

    Ball handling, shooting, defense, rebounding, etc. Why single out just one aspect? The Rockets do nothing well as a team.

    It's almost like you have to be good at fundamental aspects of the game of basketball to win games consistently...

    Terry can't handle the ball under pressure at all, same can be said for pretty much everyone else. Harden can, but only if he's "engaged."

    Ty was supposed to help here, but he is Lance Stephenson 2.0.
