    Two things the Rockets need to do,
    1. Quick decision on half court offense, be it dribble penetration, PnR, or passing,
    ISO is Rockets' strength, but you need do it early, so you have time for plan B when it doesn't work. No hold/dribble the ball for 10+ second;
    2. Better space, and passing out of double team from penetration.
    Warriors made some adjustment defending penetration in the 2nd half, their corner defenders packed into the lane to help, but their back court defenders rotated between the pain and the corner shooters, caused several Rockets TOs. Rockets need to look more for the opening on the top, not always try to pass to the corners. It's hard to do when you drive forward, but you have to make that adjustment to counter Warriors adjustment.

    For those that say MDA needs to make adjustments, what are you referring to? Mine is sitting Nene out this series and play Ryno at back up center. JJ may also have to take Luc's backup minutes at PF.

    I'm fine with someone getting low behind him and another shoving Green over to bounce his head off the hard wood, playground style.
