    Understood but fastbreak points took a lot damage when Lin & Parsons moved on, who's a great facilitator on this team? Other Harden, Nick Johnson?

    This isn't the 2011 rockets where Lowry, Dragic, Lee, Martin & Scola would just fastbreak & pass to the open shooter daily.

    Just not seeing where our offense will come from.

    THIS. I wouldn't be as worried rite now had we gotten at least Hollins on as an asst coach, for defensive purposes, obviously.

    A good coach who can get all the players, including Harden, to play good on-ball defense, and better defensive fundamentals, would win many more games. Being able to get those clutch stops would ease our tensions enormously...is Bruce Bowen available??? He is regarded as the best on-ball defender in the last 10 years.

    He has value that can easily be replaced by someone more consistent. The PG position, especially back-up PG has been the least of the Rockets problems the last 7 years.

    We found Brooks, Lowry, Dragic, and Beverley.

    I'm sure we'll have a solid backup by midseason time.
