    guy reminds me of Michael Jackson… soon he will be wearing a glove… Josh Christopher is close just like his brother Jermaine.

    Once Silas cleans up his rotations, winning will be easier.

    People were hating on me when I said Josh Christopher could have as much impact on the team as Jalen. Dwayne Wade is this dudes ceiling

    Simmons would have put up a triple double tonight.

    If you watched closely, Rockets made runs after playing tight defense and making key stops.

    This happened last season too.

    Rockets do not struggle scoring, they struggle playing consistent defense/making stops/creating turnovers.

    Especially the starting 5.

    Rockets BEST defenders are rotation and end of bench players.

    Rockets are also at their best pushing pace and playing fast.

    Guess which available All Star loves playing that way?

    this might be an unpopular opinion but i would not mind having JC or Exum play over DJ. I like DJ but i rather either give the young guy Josh lots of reps or have a taller PG like Exum that plays tough defense.

    Exum as PG with Agustin as SG would be good.

    Or Exum and JC, but JC needs to defer to Exum.

    At least until JC tightens his dribble and gets new contact lenses.

    But would love to experiment with Sengun as point on 2nd unit.

    triple double? its thats whats all this about? triple doubles!? lolololol

    paradoxically, while I respect simmons for his stubbornness, and unwillingness to shoot, he is a proven loser, a proven playoffs loser and a proven team cancer, and while anything is possible and he might become the best player in the world tomorrow, i would rather some desperate loser franchise take the bet on simmons, say kings for example.

    ps we won tonight without Benn Simmons, how is that even possible? lolololololol

    Yes, Rockets did win tonight.

    Are you suggesting the defense or rebounding cannot be improved or that Rockets will be playing the miserable Wizards every night?
