    I love how right after Charles tried saying that, Ernie immediately stated how Harden shot 3 for 10 this game. Charles immediately tried to change the subject.

    As I said earlier, we are one more Convington away from being as good as any team out there if we are sticking with this system till the end.

    I do not have confidence in House and Sefolosha.

    Looks like we did although after the win the TNT crew hardly gave the Rockets any credit... real shocker.

    Lol, oh... TNT, I didn't watch the post game show because it'll be what the Lakers did wrong. With that said, I was happy Houston made a move. I liked Capela but this is going to allow the Rockets to go full speed, and I think with Capela he'd have a hard time in the playoffs again. With the small ball it should open the paint more.

    They just need to run the bigs off the court and keep the defense guessing on who to double. I'd also rather have a team warming up or getting hot towards the end of the season (which I'm hoping we'll see).

    Can't wait to see Gobert get his easy dunk 50% of the time while getting stripped the other 50% by hands quicker than Capela's.

    Then watching him try to defend these guys on the perimeter will be a hoot.

    I loved the ROCO trade from the get go. Let them laugh, let all the "rocket fans" that threatened to leave go... I'll just enjoy my team.

    We saw an improvement in ball movement and defensive intensity. The rockets were a joy to watch.
    Now that small ball is in place, it is straight-up defense by committee. EVERYONE is responsible.

    We also literally played them 3 games ago with a small lineup and Eric Gordon dabbed all over them without WB and Harden.

    Was really impressed with the over all team D, they all hustle and bodied up more, Harden and Russ gave up a few 3s to Danny G in the first half but were solid in the second half big time. Lots of active hands and RoCo was a smiler at the end of the game sealing it for them, was super impressed we pretty much lead most of the game after LA form that early lead in the first few mins, they never lead by more than 5 after that I believe which is awesome !!! This may work better than I thought, MDA and Morey are geniuses after all ... maybe
