    More good news.

    Mavs are vulnerable from 3. If Rockets go back to their old culture of volume 3's and forcing over 10 turners while keeping their turnovers to 10 or less, this game is a win.

    Need to see Tate (Nwaba, Sterling and PJ too) put the clamps on Luka.

    Relying on Boogie for offense or more than 10 minutes a game is a net negative for Rockets.

    And he should never be in PnR, especially if he's the roller or popper.

    He's just horrible at this.

    Many on CF have said Rockets need to return to taking MUCH more corner 3's.

    Hope Brown continues to be on fire from 3 AND keeps getting the deserved playing time.

    Props to Sterling.

    That’s funny because they said the same thing about Larry Bird....he seemed to have an ok NBA career.

    Oh man...that moment in your life when you figure out that Tilman Fertitta plagiarized Lando Calrissian! “Shut up and listen!”

    This is one case where the eye test and the numbers match. Cousins has been abysmal.

    Guys have to actually not brick. Long bricks lead to fast breaks. Plus Wall is playing he's not really a 3pt shooter. Hope he has a big night but it might be wise to look for good shots more than jacking up 3's. With our luck and bad defense Mavs might break the record for made 3's against us.

    Rockets will set the record for most different starting lineups in a season.

    Then it will be a blow out.

    Rockets only had lead vs. Pistons in first half due to smothering D (forcing TO) and volume 3's.

    If Rockets fall in love with mid range, this game will not be close.

    WCS will have a swat party if he is not pulled away from paint.
