    Hmmmm, he's improving.

    Don't like the dribble in traffic off the Miller pass back to him. Should have just went up and dunked it.

    Give Hill consistent, substantial pt like 30 minutes and see what this man is made of. If Hill is a guy who can give you 14-10 then you have a real keeper who can play the 4 and the 5.

    Good effort by one player.

    Good game, I really liked the duo of Miller and Hill coming off the bench. Now we need to see some consistency from Hill, to keep up the good play...

    Nice level headed recap. It's easy to overlook the fact that 2 key players in the rotation are out, so all is not lost. At the same time, we truly are playing bad, even with the injuries factored in. Those close games in the beginning of the season are really hurting now. We could've easily been 5-8 or 6-7 with a few bounces the right way.

    3-10 will be a tough hole to climb out of, record-wise as well as psychologically.

    I wasn't really a fan of jordan hill but i'm starting to see that he can be a very good player for us. He gets rebounds that our other bigs wouldnt be able to get and even though he goes for a lot of blocks and misses at least it lets the offensive player know he's going up to contest the shots everytime. I think we need to start him or at least give him more minutes so he can play more consistent and develop.

    Hill looked good, and Lee wasn't too shabby in this one.

    As for the Rockets as a team....Ay Caramba!

    every minute and game Hill plays, it seems like he's improving.

    Improves his trade value! ;) :p

    I don't understand why he played only 22 minutes.

    good read clutch. I agree its still to early to panick, but my hopes of this team getting homecourt in the 1st round of the playoffs is fading rapidly right now.

    Why trade him he is one of the only bright spots. I think Hill should be a big part of the future.

    JH had a double double in 22 mins on 7-8 shooting. Imagine if he had another 10 minutes on the court.

    If your talking about how he shuffled his pivot foot before making his move, then your absolutely correct, but the refs rarely call that. The move itself was not a travel however.

    No rebounds? He had several monster rebounds that day.

    The move itself is a travel. He spun on his right foot, and thus establishes that as his pivot foot. However, before he took his shot, he lifted the right foot while his left foot was still planted. Travel.

    IMO 17-20 minutes is a good amount of playing time for Hill right now. At this point in his young career, he should be going for quality, not quantity.

    Jordan hill is our next center
    might as well let him start
    because one or two game starting wont matter they need to give him time and let him start so he can improve
    and when he starts we need to create plays for him
    he should get as much as touches as lets say as much as stoudamire gets
    when yao comes back lets keep him as our primary back up
    - in which we wont have to play him alot and he will be at 20 mins per game
    If this experiment fails and hill is not doing a good job(which is unlikely)
    then yao would be in a good shape by the begining of jan or february

    HILL FOR STARTING CENTER
