    He is a good finisher usually. It's one of his strengths. Just a bad half.

    He can definitely shoot. Again he's just off on his shots. He is 50% from 3 but overall he's just off. Have you guys never seen Rookies before?

    Not sure why they need to hear this but do the Heat know this is a preseason game?

    Even great all-star guards struggle against the Heat a lot because they defend the paint very very well.
    They have that old school mentality that layups aren't ever allowed.

    It's just natural for a young guard to struggle against them.

    Exactly. This is why a rebuilding team looks like and when half of the team is under 23 Yrs old. I’m somewhat encouraged from what I’m seeing, with individual flashes but the abismal defense was expected. All we can really ask from this team is to play hard and show growth from game to game. We are going to lose a ton of games this season especially to veteran playoff teams like the Heat.

    He's 4/8 on 3's. The drives are where he's not getting calls or getting stopped. At least in this game.

    Pretty hard not to block it when you go in with the weak stuff Green has gone in with multiple times.

    The Heat defends the paint extremely well. KPJ, Green and Sengun all tried challenging them at the rim and all three got blocked multiple times.

    Sengun with only 8 minutes is criminal when House got 15. Silas is such a crappy coach.

    Yep, he's tried at the rim 3 times and I'm not sure how many were blocked but all the shots were well defended and none of them were close.

    But he doesn't belong in the NBA apparently.

    I prefer paolo banchero, too many skinny players on this team already.

    Silas has given up on PnR for what reason only heaven knows.

    As ugly as the defense has been, offense has been even uglier.

    Heat are supposed to win, but Rockets should not look so hapless and confused.

    If this happens in the regular season I will start to hate Silas.
