    Yet we got some people who want to force EG into the starting lineup in replace of House? MDA better not do that again...

    Taking account our record, doesn't this mean EG and our bench has been absolute dogshit?

    I have no doubt Morey can fix that after Dec. 15th.

    Imagine when EG starts having fun and we have production off the bench. We should be good to go.

    I hope we are able to slide in to the mid tier in terms of defense and we should have a decent shot of making noise in the playoffs.

    nice find.

    btw:​
    • that 90.3 is the league's #1 DRtg for starting lineups. vs Rockets' #28 overall
    • That DREB% is #4, vs #18 overall
    That overall DREB% needs to be fixed with a trade ...

    lol, net rating is the difference between a team’s offensive and defensive rating

    Jesus Christ dude...

    You didn't bother to understand the stats before you responded. SMH

    Net rating is the difference between offense and defense...the net of the two.

    Also, as @heypartner pointed out in his post, that lineup has the league's best defensive rating among starting lineups.

    This lineup of 5 guys plays VERY well.

    DD, over time, has become an equivalent of a chinese bot. Just answers stuff without deep analysis or understanding context, just to corroborate to his personal narrative Haha.

    Starting Gordon over House should be considered a war crime.

    Bro, whos starting doesnt really matter, its about minutes distribution. You know once Gordon gets back into shape these numbers will be even better...well at least from a net rating standpoint.

    Sometimes I wonder if Rockets shipped the wrong 6th man out (Lou Will). EGO has been on some wild cold streaks the last two seasons which has attributed to our less than ideal starts.

    Interesting. Gordon, Rivers and Mclemore have played the 3 most mins off the bench. It’s not like Gordon and Rivers are trash. Got feel like Gordon will play better and I don’t see McLemore being the problem out there.
