    Clyde said it.

    "The ship is on the right track."

    You heard it folks. We've turned the corner, sailing with the wind now, championship confirmed.

    Porter.... Beal... Oubre.... and the most likely candidate, Markieff Morris.

    John Wall for a straight salary dump would be interesting. Not sure the Rockets would do it... but Wall/Paul/Harden would be entertaining.

    But, he bodies up to the ballhandlers like 8 ft beyond the arc. He needs to stop doing that.
    They easily go around him and he leaves a wide open path to the basket. Then mismatches happen,
    or other defenders have to cover/foul, or a layup.
    He needs to use his height advantage and backoff a bit when he's so far out

    Hopefully looking into trade schools and internships because he won’t be playing pro basketball much longer.

    Well, to be fair after we beat the Lakers we shat the bed. After our 3 game win streak we shat the bed. Another win over Indiana and what do we have? Games against the Nuggets and Warriors. Could be looking at 5-9

    If BOS keeps struggling, don’t you think Hayward is available?

    I really doubt it. Dealing with the Celtics is really difficult anyway.

    I have heard very little other than Rockets are open for business but so far most teams are waiting.

    Some have said the Wizard are a trade partner possibly. I know the Rockets asked about Morris this off season so there is interest from Houston.

    Well probably a few needed some time off from the games. Sad, but I am one of them. I need a few days free of the frustration it brought me, and will only resume after the Warriors game. That is if I hear our guys are starting to put forth some effort. I just got tired of watching lazy slop. Glad some did better tonight.

    What would you like them to do? Green and Anthony were out. They are trying to find deals to expand the rotation and improve the team but few teams are interested right now.

    Hartenstein is a bull in a china shop. But, I like some of what I'm seeing from him. He's very committed to everything he does on the court. You have to remember how young he is. He will improve. He'll never be a starter. He may never be a full time backup. But, he does bring energy, and that's something we always need.

    aside from the great performances by harden, paul, and clark.... there's still something i absolutely have to complain about tonight.

    worrell is now full-on incompetent at calling an nba game. he's a mistake-a-minute announcer who simply annoys the viewer to no end bumbling the details of the game from start to finish. i find myself constantly having to figure out which to believe between his mouth and my eyes while watching the game.

    also if i hear bright light even one more time i dunno what i might do lol
