    Cant defend and doesn't space the floor. Unplayable against GSW. Next question.

    Except he does shoot threes. We won a game against them with Faried shooting threes

    Yup, he would get absolutely annihilated on defense, completely useless against the warriors

    He played in one of the first 2 games when we had a major rebounding problem

    Faried hasn't played well when he has had minutes. He really needs to focus on becoming a better team and individual defender during the off-season. He can have a few more years with the rockets if he just tries harder on that end.

    I would take Faried’s energy and scoring ability over Capela’s any day if the week. At least he can shoot the ball and knows what to do with it on a picnic n roll. Capela basically decided he can’t drive the lane and play against Green so he’s almost completely useless offensively

    Same as Capella, but atleast Faried would hustle for rebounds oh and can finish around the rim

    He has been in the league too long now this is exactly why Denver got rid of him.

    This series Fareid is +2 in 5 min. of playing time. So can't defend is little premature....if we can play crappy Capela/House/Green then why not him?

    Last year in WCF with same excuse Rockets didn't play Nene... but how come same Nene whenever given chance in the series is playing better than capela? And Nene last year was much better than this year.

    Fareid's defense is not bad if he plays at PF..that's where he played when Rockets beat GS in the 3rd game of regular season. And he may be able to play at center against GS small lineup.
