    We lose because we're not going to play "democratic" ball like Sampson wanted it to be. Also because with this no democratic ball offense, we barely beat the Bobcats. We played some democratic ball in the 3rd which closed the gap and then played undemocratic in the 4th, and of course, Harden says it felt like we won the championship w/ the Bobcats.

    In addition, the Denver nuggets could beat OKC and Miami. All this means a loss!

    Finally a home game. We were leading the Clips at home, chances should be alright for a W.

    ISO Harden - 3s. No defense. Expecting a 20+ points blowout by the Nuggets.

    Based on the last 8 games, I guess this is a loss unless everybody step up.

    Based on the last 8 games, this is a loss unless the coach goes back to what was working when we were winning.

    We've already played 5 more games than the T-Wolves. Schedule makers ****ed us over this month with the insane back to backs.

    Pretty much. Lin's going to need a lot of help on defense.

    With the way the Rockets have been playing lately, I'll put this down as a loss.

    everyone watch how the nuggets set picks and screen for their guards to get free. while the rockets dribble pass around to Harden and everyone go 1 on 1.

    We play much better at home (though Denver is a tough, tough matchup.) Especially Lin, Harden, and Patterson. Especially especially Lin. we've been pretty close to bottomed out, and young teams can put the bad times behind them almost as easily as they can the good. Hope Douglas plays 18 minutes or so . . .

    I often see Lin covering his man and running into the Pick ( sometimes the Pick moves and helps out the collision ;-)) His man often has a ton of big man protection/cover helping to get away from Lin, clear a path in the paint and make their shot. (what I consider normal basketball plays).

    Why don't the rockets do this? Are we truly incapable or is this part of the Morey/Mchale Offense Plan? Is the Big guy doing something else more important than giving protection/cover for our guards? I have seen Jharden set a pick for Lin and I see Asik sometimes try to set picks for Harden and Lin but these are rare sightings.

    It seems they want the guards to forget clear path layups, run into the paint (clogged with defenders) draw fouls and maybe make a layup in the process?
