    System is similar, they play with 3 pt shooting, a very good Center and combo guards/versatile PGs.

    The overall D isn't comparable as it is a work in progress.

    Ersan and Bellinelli are very good shooters. Any team would welcome them if they were contenders.

    I am sure Morey has coveted them.

    They have perhaps the current ROY candidate instead of the MVP......so yeah they are still not on that level but they are improving.

    i think its just a knee jerk reaction to say we're better off replacing 2 our rotation players who helped us getting 1st seed with ersan and belli after just 1 playoff game and not even giving our guys a chance to play their 1st playoffs game.

    No fan base and team has had to wait this long for the playoffs to start and it’s not just the late start in the second day.

    First Rockets’ possession Capella catches an alley oop... next possession on a harden/capella pick and roll we kick it out to the open three and he knocks it down.

    Rinse and repeat.

    Need some viewing advice - i had NBA League Pass all year and never bothered with cable. I assumed as a first seed most of our playoff games would be on national tv (lol... where was my head at?) How can i watch this game? Last year League pass offered some weird live camera angles so that's a back up plan. Are Reddit Streams still the best option?
