    This is pure nit pick.

    I've seen more passes to Wall from Harden for wide open 3's that were not taken.

    So that’s how we look with B-Mac, I mean we are still missing house too.

    Can’t wait for the full squad to play!

    Big fan of the defensive rebounding, ball movement with low turnovers and three point shooting tonight.

    Wood needs to shoot for 15 rebounds every game.

    The two hard nose rookies are great (Nwaba, Tate) but BenMac needed to be on the lineup as well.

    Also no to AG man dude is dealing with a hamstring injury.

    Probably would have given up 120 if they were healthy.

    The Rockets did what they were supposed to do against a short-handed Magic team. You love to see it! Was also good that the bench was nice and engaged during the last quarter, too. I get that James wants out but I love the fact that he was still getting out of his seat to cheer on KJ Martin.

    This is good momentum that can hopefully be carried into the Lakers game. A win against the defending champions will open some eyes.

    Where am i nit picking. I was pointing out that Wall was visibly pissed at Harden for putting the ball on the floor instead of shooting it. Would be nice if Harden shot it but I don’t care either way since he is good at both. One takes less energy though. Life was easy for him tonight but would be nice if Harden would trust his catch and shoot game more. Don’t you think Silas prefers that too?

    I assume Wall was pissed because he is trying to make Harden’s life easier so Harden will see Wall’s value and hopefully stay. I also assume Silas wants Harden to shoot those shots too. Wall should shoot them too if open but did Wall shoot a stepback after passing on an open 3?

    I actually had no idea until searching for that right now that Pepe had some kind of hijack by crazy alt-right people. So my bad, Clutchfans. I do a pretty decent job of avoiding politics.

    EDIT: He was also a symbol for resistance in the Hong Kong protests?

    We live in a pretty stupid/weird world. lol

    Maclemore surrounded by guys like Brown, Nwaba, and Tate makes him not so much a liability anymore. And his shooting is badly needed.

    AD also has the best player on the planet on his team. The Nuggets lost in 5 games like we didn and AD busted their ass harder than he did us. The Heat won games without Adebayo and their small ball lineup was hurting the Lakers. But AD also busted their ass harder than he did us. We lost because Our second best player sucked and he continues to suck now.

    That's not what Im saying. You can play them. Centers are great, Im just saying you play the lineup that works and small ball does work, maybe not for 48 minutes but it does work in spurts.

    It just depends on the situation and what lineup works. If Woods can play defense like he did in the Sacramento game, Im all for it man. I just dont believe that Big Ball is inherently better than "small ball."
