    It's the Trump Effect. Tall white guy is the same as any other tall white guy. They are all the same as instructed by Trump. I'm surprised they could tell Ryan Anderson apart from the Sun's tall white guys.

    yet somehow they're still above the Lakers in ranking, lmao!

    Best part of watching the Lakers struggle this year is knowing they don't have a 1st round pick.

    Finally Ryno and Tucker made a good impact on offense! Also, how much I love to see us finally using the mid-range lately, you have no idea. Gordon taking some shots, Green, even Ariza, but CP3 with just burning them. He's finally playing his own game and it looked great. We played some nice defense. Green had his first 'bad' game in my opinion. Very solid win, though could we have not just have kept that 20+ lead? Once we learn to mix our threes with the mid-range, we will be unbeatable! Also, is this MDA's dream, having 7 guys in his main rotation :D

    i wouldn't mind if cp3 took the midrange every time down the floor and we took the 3s only when wide wide open....
    any shot in rhythm is more efficient than any other shot when out of zone and not in rhythm

    also midrange is more efficient than tired legs 3 or layups

    go rockets!

    It's nice to see us get some wins with Harden out. Our bench is getting a lot of good minutes, which will help us down the stretch.

    Yes, which is better than I expected actually. I'll take every win we can get with him out. We will only get better from all the experience.

    Man, I didn't even know that. I would've easily said they are the worst team in basketball. Them or Mavs, but Mavs try hard.

    imagine if we didn't do the CP3 trade, we'd be rolling out there with Bev (if he isn't injured), Lou, Dekker and our current roster with Trez getting spot up minutes.

    Would we even get 3 wins out of the 7?

    rockets fans here often underrate achievements of their team and the strength of their opponent
