    The Rockets need Asik back ASAP. Jones was getting out worked on the glass

    There's no such thing as Lin vs Bev - they play for the same freaking team.:grin:What I really don't want to hear is how our PG rotation needs to be upgraded. All 3 played their hearts out tonight on both ends. When the whole team clicks with Harden we'll be scary.

    Jones was being abuse by Diaw. Dmo was in for D (I will never said this again this season) but that's exactly what it was.

    This post is stupid.

    Of course Lin played more minutes - Harden was injured, he HAD to step up. That's what being part of a team is all about.

    Lin is a 'bubble' player with a very specific role, which he executes most times he plays. That is, to be aggressive in attacking the basket, and to push the break.
    Doesn't matter if he starts (due to injury), or if he's off the bench. He's still doing the same thing - and that's in 30 or 44 or 7 minutes.

    Rockets in desperation mode (i.e., no Harden) = Lin plays 40+ minutes
    Otherwise Lin plays 25 minutes

    Yes Howard's help defense was on point tonight ! the switches were great! , jones still has some work to do on PnR D but he's young he will get there. it seemed like the whole team was locking in on the perimeter and that's very hard to do against the spurs because they run so many plays and have Parker. I think the crowd played a big part in them getting fired up on defense also.

    Good win. Rockets haven't had a 3 game losing streak this season. Haven't had a big win streak either, but yeah, baby steps.
