    Stepped away at the 30 second mark of the 4th, did The Rockets hang on to win?

    Rockets looked like a legit contender tonight against the Lakers. One of their best games. The young guns shined.

    One interesting thing about Jalen's sudden competence is his rebounds are up. Like....way up. Not sure what was talked about but it seems to get him into a rhythm more. Something to watch moving forward.

    Lebron is such a whiny b****. I hate that he's worth a billion dollars.

    Udoka referenced tonight it was something they went over together of film study.

    Showing clips of him ball watching othwr players battle 1v1 for a rebound.

    Emphasized using his athleticism to get rebounds and pushing the pace. Referenced Crack back rebounding as a target.

    he is averaging a career-high this season in rebounds. He had 0 and some fans killed him for it. He has grabbed 32 in the past 3 games since that 0 rebound game. He is starting to be more aggressive when driving the ball as well. The last three games he has gotten to the line a bit more because of his driving to the hoop.

    That is what OKC did to Westbrook, told him to grab the rebound and push the pace. It is why he averaged a TD

    Yeah i remember.

    Worked very well with his skillet. Seems like it's working for Jalen also. Keeping him very engaged and active regardless of results happening.

    Smart adjustment by ime
