    Win streak, baby! Was trying to watch via ESPN Gamecast because we're at Disney... it wasn't quite the same, But I will take the dub....
    Is that 2 of 3 wins without Theis??? Once is a coincidence, 2 is a pattern... IJS

    NOT going down that road.... yet... LOL
    I am honestly hoping Thrilla is seeing what Snipa and GM (he needs a nickname!) are doing out there and can replicate that.
    He can work hard on team defense, hit his open shots, not shy from contact.... plus he can add attacking the rim...
    I hope Thrilla is at Pappasito's filling up on fajitas to bulk up

    Were you okay with Sengun's turnovers?

    Were you okay with Sengun’s starting point guard like assists?

    i liked what i saw from wood this game... not just the stats but

    1 playing under control
    2 picking his spots
    3 and not forcing things

    Still shetting on Wood after 33/16 and +16 game that Rockets won vs a good team???

    Wood when used properly (starting 5) will contribute to winning basketball.

    I hope that is still the goal around here.

    The goal is to make Green look like a second pick, not to win. Always has been.

    And posters were attacking a few of us for suggesting Matthews to starting 5.

    LOL

    Unless Silas keeps EGo, Matthews, Brooks and Augustin in the rotation.

    And Wood at the 5.

    The hot 3P shooting can be maintained.

    Of course continue limiting minutes for Theis and House.

    Both Sengun AND Green should be on 2nd unit.

    Playing vs opposing benches will improve their efficiency and confidence.

    But most importantly this will balance out Rockets rotation.

    Maybe team wouldn't have been such shyte at 3P if he wasn't so stubborn about starting Theis at 5?

    Or playing Tate AND Green in starting 5 which distorted the spacing AND the shooting efficiency.

    That his job had to be threatened first before he would make these simple adjustments is concerning.
