    Greatest backcourt of all time? Certainly knocking on it with a championship this year.

    The best play I thought was Harden driving into the paint and passing it to Westbrook behind him for the mid-range shot. That looked smooth and like a Scottie MJ, Stockton Malone connection type play! Love this duo so much more than any past one. Not a knock on Howard, CP3 or whoever, but just the love between those two and how they're opposites in terms of style of play, strengths and personality on the court makes this a perfect fit!

    I know people used to hate our style of play and I wonder if they are paying attention now. We have a team that is electric and fun to watch. The ball is moving. The team is running. Dunking the ball. Hitting some mid-range. Hitting 3's. Occasionally posting up. We are playing defense. Not trying to draw fouls all the time.

    I love this style of ball!

    Inexcusable.

    Rockets' Stars in MVP Form


    Third-Quarter Defense Sparks Victory


    D'Antoni Trims Rotation

    Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni trotted out 12 players in Thursday's win over the Warriors, potentially signaling an expanded rotation for the season's final stretch. Saturday's win marked a return to D'Antoni's traditional style.

    Nine Rockets saw the floor on Saturday night, with a trio of potential frontcourt contributors earning a DNP-CD. Thabo Sefolosha failed to play for the first time in 12 games, and neither DeMarre Carroll nor Bruno Caboclo saw the floor in their second potential game with the Rockets. Perhaps the aforementioned trio will see limited action moving forward, but Saturday was an indication of D'Antoni's likely playoff lineup. Jeff Green should continue to be Houston's backup center, though otherwise, it's business as usual for D'Antoni as we roll into March.

    Only 3 steals between the two? Not our standard. I remember seeing Dream get that in a half.

    Blow it up.

    fwiw, I’ve definitely seen more positive posts on r/nba from non-Rockets fans.
