    You can't be serious, Bmac is a worse defender than James. His defensive IQ is a negative Pi-squared.

    With a 4 game losing streak, we have to try something. Anything.

    I swear if we go for the same starting lineup again, then D-Antoni is losin it.

    We should put Green as the center, Covington as the power forward, Tucker as the small forward, Harden as the shooting guard and Westbrook as the point guard. We can then rotate minutes between House, Tucker and Gordon in the small forward area. Then rotate minutes between Harden/Gordon as the shooting guard as well.

    I think having that starting lineup gives us a better balance for defense, rebounding and shot contests in the paint.

    MDA won't play him!!! I THINK THE ROTATION SHOULD INCLUDE BRUNO MORE

    Harden
    Westbrook
    House
    Covington
    Green

    Bench

    Rivers
    EG
    McLemore/Carroll
    Tucker
    Bruno (he needs to get 10 - 15 mins w/ Harden for a roll presence, also to provide rebounding and defense in the paint)

    I do like the lineup.
    I hope Tucker does not take it as a true demotion.

    We need more first quarter punch

    House has no business starting either.

    DMC over House.

    But would really like to see Bruno with starters.

    Yup. Prefer JGreen over Tucker and Ben over House.
    Tucker has been a liability on offense and even on defense. Most switches he is late or doesn’t switch right. If u guys notice most wide open layups are on tucker switches. Plus he is underside and hasn’t rebounded well. So no defense no offense or rebounds. It’s just a minus atm.

    If instead he goes with the bench and plays less minutes and finishes the games maybe he will play better. He would be more rested. We complain about Harden not been able to stay in front of his man well Tucker can’t stay in front of anyone either on switches. I like pj but we do ask too much from him.
    And house needs to be sat if he won’t shoot wide open opportunities. He seriously attempts harder unnecessary shots instead of taking the wide open or just open shots. His step back or drives always result in the worse possible outcomes. He can’t finish at the rim.

    At least Ben would shoot n he is one of our best shooters. we need to make sure Ben attempts at least 5 or 10 3s a game and Austin like 5.
    they are our better three point shooters. And somehow Mike needs to grow some pair and tell Harden that if he misses more than 8 or 10 to stop shooting 3s. He needs to run some pnr for Harden with Green and Harden needs to try more alleyoops or floaters.
    Finally Harden needs to get his shot together.

    Everyone is watching him turn into a mediocre NBA player. His lazy attitude, his passive plays and his shot attempt have been subpar. He is getting paid a ton and I thought he said he love to hoop. I thought he said he was the best player. He is playing like trash. Get it together Harden, the Rockets always go as far as he takes us. We got Russ now so if Harden won’t change let’s just ice him and sit him. Let him pout all he wants until he plays with some effort.

    I really wish him the best and I hope that he figures things out. I missed The Harden of two years ago or even last year that would play even if he was hurt or on b2b. Something is up with him he isn’t the same. Is like the Monstars took his talent.

    mmm maybe this is what happens and they are filming it for the LeBron space jam movie :p

    yes House has no business as a starter. He is sucking so much and bricking.

    I’ll put Eric, Ben in before him even DMC.

    though Eric is better in the bench line up.

    Bruno is the only one that can switch, rebound, block shots, and hit a 3! PJ Tucker is giving up too much on the defensive end and not providing enough on the offensive end. You can't continue get out rebounded by 20+ boards a game and let opponents have a free path through the paint.... IT DOES NOT MAKE COMMON SENSE!!!

    MDA and Morey are not thinking sensibly

    Y’all can say all y’all want, MDA isn’t gonna bench tucker. I think we all know this. Only way if it’s tucker is hurt and someone get his spot so he can “rest”.
