    Green's length and McLemore's ups on display protecting the rim.

    We all miss Clint, I know.

    But not to worry Fam, you will still see the lobs and pocket passes finished by a dunk.

    The recipients will just be Russ ... & UNCA JEFF!!!

    Yes, I know. It’s Jeff Green that we’re talking about here. The guy is known for showing promise and how he can be a difference-maker, and then not living up to the potential.

    But he deserves credit for how he’s played so far.

    His averages in 14 games played as a Houston Rocket are 11.4 PPG, 3.1 RPG and 1.4 APG on 76.1 2PT%, 40 3PT% (4.6 attempts a game), and 80 FT%, 68 TS% in 21 MPG, which is just ridiculous production for a role player.

    He has been so good, you’d think the Rockets built this system to maximize him and not Harden & Westbrook.

    So how exactly is he having his best season in over a decade?
    The answer to that is quite simple: The Rockets’ system has put in the best position to succeed.

    He didn’t gain newfound athleticism after getting waived by the Utah Jazz, and he also didn’t develop a new shooting form. he had just never played in a 5 out system, or with a player who gets doubled the moment he crosses half court.

    Green has attempted 31 3s in the bubble so far. 18 of them have been from the corner, and the vast majority of those have been completely wide open.

    This is why I dont take your posts seriously.

    McLemore is locked up next season.

    Do your research.

    i feel like at some point this will have to be a closing lineup for us the deeper we go into the playoffs. Or even with house in for tucker if he keeps playing this well. I think tucker will be a an effective playoff defender if refs allow teams to be a little more physical as they typically do, but when we need scoring PJ is a one trick pony. The added size and athleticism could make us impossible to defend.

    This is what Morey thrives on. Other names that come to mind are Patrick Bev, Kyle Lowry, Carl Landry, Parsons, Von Wafer (I know some were signed and some drafted but the concept remains the same)
