    Nope, Westbrook has borked the chemistry...

    This is a "Whose team is it" issue.

    I never said GG was a Defensive Stallworth and never will but nothing has changed from last year, except GG and CP3, and CP3 was in and out of the lineup. So, why is the defensive so porous? GG gave the offense a boost, that we haven't captured as of yet this year.

    Mclemore has the best plus/minus on the team and shoots just as well as GG

    This is some nostalgia.

    I think Green is being undervalued here, it just seemed like he was a solid vet and could be a spark plug when needed. Both the MIL and BK game where there were spurts of no offense and the team looking deflated, a few minutes of GG changing things up would have been a difference maker in my opinion. If EG was playing to his new contract then maybe GG is replaceable, but he has not and we don't have a guy who can get us out of a rut off the bench. With GG I think Houston has a couple more wins. Aside from Westbrook/House who else but GG runs the floor with that type of energy?

    speed up the rhythm when shoot accurately and slow the rhythm for defence when low shooting percentage

    The old suns had a good tempo with Nash being the conductor and Amare in the middle that can knock down mid-range. Marion and Raja Bell were good 2 way players.

    This team ... lots of ISO ball. Looks like Pringles are putting a lot of emphasis on increasing tempo and putting the scoring pressure on the other team. The problem is our guys are actually not scoring enough to be able to not to play defense. Harden needs enforcers like Ariza, Tucker around him. Guys that can defend for him. Instead we have a bunch of guys are just ok on defense and not too excellent on offense.
