    Teams scouted him, and he’s been cold from the corners …. Teams are way more aggressive guarding him off screens / dribble handoffs

    I can’t believe people thought Matthews should’ve started over Green.

    Maybe not when you look at the box score but if you watched the game, you'd know better.

    Teams are defending him differently now - they don't help off of him and they keep a defender glued to him all the time.
    When they run that pick action there's very often 3 defenders on him & the pick setter leaving the rest of the court to two defenders on 3 guys.

    That's a big deal in creating space for the rest of the offense to work in.

    didn't want to jinx the rockets, but I was wondering how the Rockets were immune to Omarion's Touch for so long. It was only a matter of time.

    He took a hard one for us tonight. With Fox out, Rockets closed the game.

    Fox is cheap AF.

    GM is a tough kid.

    Does so many of the little things on offense AND defense that don't show up in box score.

    Didn't see the game, but lost a lot of respect for Fox. He should have went over and checked on Mathews after the foul, that's terrible.

    I'm old school and don't believe in helping another player up, but after a foul like that you do the right thing and tell the dude you hope he's ok.

    Best value for money... He will be better if he's got better teammates. He's your ideal role player.
