Damn dude, thanks!! I really appreciate that you took the time to do that and add in all of the details.



Also Wesley Johnson had an amazing game.

 

27 points 9-11 shooting 6-7 from three

6 rebounds, 3 blocks, 2 assists, one of which was for a game tying three I think. 

 


Shawne Williams found his stroke 

20 points 8 rebounds tonight


Hill hurt his ankle, could have come back, but D'antoni decided to rest him and not risk it. 

 

Nick Young came on late and made some brilliant passes.. yes PASSES!! 

Farmar came on late as well, made a bad play on Jennings but Jennings missed 2 of the 3 free throws.  Then Farmar misses both free throws that would have iced the game, and then Nick Young takes a charge making a key defensive play to save the game taking a charge from Josh Smith.

Once we got the charge Nick Young was celebrating on the ground full of energy.

It was so much fun to watch and it felt so triumphant as a team to come back from 9 down to go on a 15-3 run and win it in the end and close out our 2nd game on the road this time much more definitively. 

 

If I find game highlights i'll make a thread so you can check some out!

Nice victory, now get some rest and destroy those clowns from Oregon on Sunday night. 



Arguably the greatest franchise ever

A barely above .500 team? He was on a Lakers team like that last year. The Rockets are 12 - 5. The Lakers wouldn't be in the playoffs if they started today. This team is fun to watch, they have heart, they lack talent, but they are entertaining. Not saying the Rockets are world beaters, they aren't, but they are better than this Lakers team.

Well, we haven't played a single game with Kobe yet. Most of us thought that we'd see a healthier Nash, but he's been nonexistent and it's foolish to even expect him to lead us at this point of his career. 

 

Gasol had multiple bad games but he's been slowly rounding into form. We'd actually be 14-3 were we able to effectively close out the games against the Spurs, Pelicans, Nuggets, Grizz, and Wiz. I am not saying we'd close out those games with Kobe since the dynamics change, but it's always a possibility.

 

And if we had Howard, most of our interior defense problems would have been fixed assuming he would be determined and focused. On the other hand, maybe his FT shooting could cost us some games. I don't know.

Every team in the league. Save for a handful. Would have a great record if they won close games, had all their players consistently play to their potential, and had no injuries. That is why speaking in hypotheticals is pointless. Hypothetically, the Lakers are a great team, but if you want to talk about what has actually happened, they are 9 and 8.

Of course.

But we're strictly talking about the Lakers and Rockets. And for the matter, the Rockets have their closer (Harden), haven't had as severe injuries (Harden's foot soreness), and most players have played to their potential (Parsons has been amazing). And they haven't had much of a difficult schedule anyways.

Looking at Houston's schedule I see only one loss in their next 10 games, possibly San Antonio. best thing to happen to that team  was Asik complaining. It got McHale out of love with the two big philosophy.  Now Asik is backing up Dwight. 

Their schedule I see maybe 2 losses in their next 10. 

San Antonio

Utah
Phoenix

Golden State

Orlando
Portland 

Golden State 

Sacramento
Chicago

Golden State with no Iggy is going to be hard for them.
Chicago with no Rose. 

Phoenix will come back down to earth when their schedule gets harder. 

 

Indiana and San Antonio are the only 'threats' I see up there.   Possibly Portland but Houston has the style to beat them.
