    No need to blame Douglas, Harden or Lin, they played fine. The reason we lost was because Morris and Patterson went 4 for 14 and Delfino's 1-7 performance. Shooting 27.3% at 3 pt land and FTM-A of 12-29 definitely hurt. The front court needs to step up and show up at games going forward and more practice at the charity line.

    Never liked Celtics... They play dirty (or veteran) defense... We are lucky that no one got injured...

    What is the percentage of 3pt attempts today that are uncontested? I did not watch the first 3 quarters...

    Nice shootout between Lillard and Curry (22/12..pretty good stat for Curry as well). Good thing about Lillard is that he's not like Irving in going all out every night and at times forgetting about your own teammates. He knows when to take over and when to defer things. Houston should still be good shape after this weekend if they take tomorrow's game. Portland is probably bound to be pushed back another game on Sunday. GS or Denver is guaranteed a loss on Sunday. Houston could be back to number 6 come Monday.

    I blame this loss on Lin. No joke. He can't be on his game watch everyone be off their game and shoot 9 shots. Ridiculous. If he wants to be the second option he's got to take over sometimes. If he doesn't take 15 shots a game I'm gonna blame him for everything not the coaches

    What are you saying? He obviously was taking about the style of the game. Can't you like a team just because of its style?

    Lol! funny stuff man
    One issue with all the lack of picks/screens knocks on the team... Setting a screen for Lin, whether or not it would help him to beat his defender (which he can already do without one), will not help him to finish at the basket or prevent defense from collapsing on him in the paint. You can set a thousand picks, but they'll continue to dead end him in the paint since he has no stop and pop, outside jumper threat.

    the rockets offense is pathetic so predictable just give to harden and iso jump shot or drive try to get foul. pass around with no picks or screen set. or asik get calls for moving picks.

    harden takes a lot of bad shots some with a defender right in front , it looks good when it goes in but ugly when its not.

    harden try to do to much thats why 5 to first half. 6 to total.

    the celtics pick n roll the rockets all night and asik is not a good pick n roll defender , he stay to far back.

    TURNOVERS man!


    A lot of them are totally on Harden who has the crazy ability to hero-ball but he really needs to watch a LOT OF GAME FILM and learn how to pick and choose his hero moments better

    Oh yeah I forgot saying "my lakers" obviously means he loved the style (just the style). I apologize for my ignorance. :rolleyes:

    I have noticed this and to be sure I would watch replay on League Pass to confirm what I saw.

    Harden seldom really use the screens properly to get his defender stopped. I am not sure what you mean by "wave off" a lot of screens, but he would often just fake to the other side and then swing back to the same side as the defender and dribble around him, rather than letting the screener block the defender.

    Lin used to use a lot more screens in NY with Tyson Chandler and Jared Jeffries, but now I only see him do it with Asik occasionally but much less than a month ago.

    In the last month Asik would stay at low post more probably to get ready for layup or rebounding, but it would be more effective if he would come up to the the top of the key to set the pick and roll back to get to the rim.

    I have seen Smith did it once with Lin but that's it.

    I think McHale should have our players relearn the use of screening and all its variations, or our games would become more and more difficult going towards the postseason.

    Well to be fair we only had 14 turnovers, below our average. If you are referring to the rockets as a team, turnovers weren't a problem. But if you're talking about harden by himself, yeah I agree he has turned over the ball a lot recently (along with Lin, although he had none today)
