    We played small for a stretch and I think dantoni wanted to get Clint his minutes so he can be ready for 30 in the reg season

    101 - 89 Houston win.

    Capela was a monster, everyone was laying bricks left and right, something like 15-48 from 3, most makes came in the second half. LBaM played spectacular, and Troy Williams came in at the end with the goods. Honestly, outside Luc, Clint, and Troy, it was a forgettable game.

    Looked like they wanted to get PJ practice at small ball 5 for GS

    I bet Moute will soon start, and Ryno will go to the bench. Luc is one of the top 3 perimeter defenders in this league. If he can hit consistently that 3, he's more vauable than Ryno to the team

    Didn't like that CP3 deferred point guard duties to Harden too much. CP3 is a better point guard and Harden can play the two better.

    Good thing Memphis was not so good offensively and choked a little in the end.

    We won......but it is only Pre season and i like what i see. Even when both Superstars don't play well, they combine to do just enough to get the win. Capela dominated as well

    Harden needs to shoot and look to score more and Paul needs to bring the ball up. Second half was much better after we adjusted to the Grizzlies intensity. Less turnovers and the ball was moving quicker. Trevor in my opinion is in for a huge year. He seems like he has his springs back to his yester years. He is moving really well.

    Harden needs to move better without the ball, so does Zhou.

    I would not overrate the win..... Memphis stars played 5 or 8 less minutes than ours and they lost Zach Randolph while we got better talent.

    They still play us hard.

    Memphis is a 7-10th seed team. Still good on D and below average O.

    Grizzlies is a team we typically struggle against as they slow down our tempo. So it was good to get a win over them.
