    Somehow people will make this out to be a bad thing about dedication or work ethic or something.

    I want to believe the Rockets have turned the corner but I can't until we beat an actual good team.

    I didn't realize how bad Harrell was. -19.3 rating? Wow.

    This season gives a lot of hope of western conference team.

    A lot of teams are banged up except for Warriors and Spurs.

    Technically that's not accurate. They were 4-3 at one point.

    Harrell and Brewer SMH. Harell is a rookie, what the hell is Brewer's excuse? He's not injured.

    At least Harrell had to get minutes with Jones, D-Mo, and Dwight all injured at one point or another in the first quarter of the season. We have other options besides Brewer at the 3 and 2. Thornton and even McDaniels should be getting those minutes ahead of him if he keeps playing the way he has.

    Eye test told me Harrell was awful, this confirms that.

    Nice read. Surprisingly positive from someone outside or Houston.

    So Harrel is like really bad? I thought he was great, then go benched for nothing. I should pay more attention I guess. Really thought he was ok

    I dont believe that its fair to judge Harrell based on those numbers as most of the time when he does play its because everyone else is out. Of course the teams offense and defense will be bad because he is having to play over more talented guys. I mean he is a second round pick - this team has major issues if its looking to a second round pick being an impact player less than 25 games into his rookie year.

    Harrell definitely needs his time to develop, he will get it playing in the D-League. His energy and ability to get rebounds and he has a nose for the ball around the basket is a huge trait to have. To be honest though with Jones, DMo, Dwight and Clint there just isn't time for him on this team to play right now.

    The article is not bad at all I think the biggest thing that is going to help the Rockets right now is that despite the poor start the rest of the west outside of the Spurs and Warriors have been pretty mediocre thus far. If the Rockets go on a run where they when like 12 of their next 15 they'll be in the mix again - even potentially in the mix for home court in at least the first round.

    I do believe that there are still several things the team must work on but the confidence is starting to show again and build. The lapses are becoming less frequent, but hopefully if they can close out december strong they'll have a lot to look forward to in the new year.
