    You can't bleed a turnip - we need players who can play defense to surround those that can't.

    Those defensive players needed don't help Westbrook and his "efficiency". I still can't believe we kept him past the trade deadline.

    That’s exactly right. And to make matters worse we don’t have a guy that can rebound against other bigs. The Rockets are getting killed on the boards against most teams and giving them lots of second shots. I will also add that when the playoffs start the games slows down, and defense and rebounding matter even more if you want to advance

    well the 4th qtr wasn't bad except for that wide wide open 3 but that might have been by design

    He made a great adjustment
    Rockets started to trap and double ball handler
    Prevented penetration and wide open 3s

    Then what does Carlisle's white board look like?

    Mavs were worse.

    4th was excellent defense.

    Do not let haters tell you otherwise.

    This game should have never gone this far if D’Antoni actually made adjustments

    this is the same story. We got bailed out for a few reasons
    Russ actually played defense and Harden is Harden

    Not a fan of the defensive adjustments of D Antoni
    But I’m old school
    I don’t like giving up 90 points at half time
