    May as well be Ime Udoka after the Rockets misfire from three THE WHOLE DAMN SEASON. All our youngsters need to get in the gym this summer and just shoot. Literally, if we improve that one thing—everything changes. And Dillon needs to find his shot again or he’s getting replaced by Amen as early as next season

    ‘Stop missing. Clap, clap, clap.’

    As we face better defenses and they are more prepared for Green, you can see the effect of not having Sengun making it easier for the defenses to focus on the perimeter players, in particular Green, having to work much harder to get his points. It is not a coincidence that Green is 2/16 from downtown last two games.

    This team can hardly beat any good team if one of Green, FVV or Sengun is missing.

    Tonight, the whole world is rooting for the Mavs.

    Except for San Francisco. But that place doesn't exist

    This was always the situation if either or was out since they are the best post/perimeter creation players and the Rockets could not afford to lose any key starter(let alone best) as the others, plus the Rockets had low Vegas W-L prediction so they are not even supposed to be here

    Not saying they would beat these teams with AS, but with him and this current Green, teams would be way more on high alert

    But we shall see in about 6 or so months

    Not sure, Sengun played both games vs T-Wolves earlier in the season and the Rockets got schlacked both games.

    Sengun and Amen allows Gobert to camp out near the rim.

    Was just more so speaking how the Rockets need their team at full strength to go against the top teams on both sides of conf.

    Results may vary

    Wolves are bad matchup with their size

    Gobert is going to camp in the lane no matter what, that's his bread and butter, they don't allow him to do nothing, even Jabari is only going to stretch him out so much, they can switch Gobert mid play to Amen who is mainly in dunker spot, in Gobert Lane

    I know you love the 6'7''+ switch all long defender, but you need some size/height for these games like a Adams or even younger cheaper upcoming version.....Edey

    A lot of armchair coaches in here, Ya’ll think they haven’t thought about practicing shooting before? ;)

    Still promising to see what Green looks like now during a cold three point shooting streak. Still looked like the best player on the court in Target center even with his three not falling. His playmaking, finishing and defense have made massive leaps this season. If he can even out his three point shooting to a 35-38% 3 pt shooter, he'll join Sengun as the two stars.

    I am encouraged by Green's progress. I hope he keeps it up. He (and the whole team) need to urgently improve their shooting.

    It would be nice to go to Jabari in the post with intent when shots arent falling. Jabari out to 10 feet hits 50% of his shots.
