Houston play like 5-out Pro-Am teams do in 2K
It's disgusting to watch.
Amplified by it being hard to stop
By the end of our bench, sure. We'll see when they have to face an actual team like the Lakers or Clippers.
I guess I more mean Harden specifically. Unstoppable offensive force

I think this Houston team could give the Lakers a run for their money. Lakers love to play big, but the rockets love to shoot threes and Lakers may have a hard time defending that.

They are toast against the cippers tho, those guys can play small better than the Rockets can, and the Rockets dont have a counter.
Although I don't know how the Rockets are gonna defend AD. He's gonna feast on this Rockets team in a playoffs series.
AD did wreck the Rockets in the one game he played against them, but they lost as Westbrook dropped 40 on them. That's only going to get worse without AB. Danny Green can't defend both Harden and Westbrook
Caruso will have his hands full, that for sure. Hypothetically RoCo should be a nice defender for Lebron, but RoCo also has a track record of being pretty bad in the playoffs, so I'm not sure.
It's only his offence that slips in the playoffs, I haven't seen any notable dip for his defence.
Rockets PG: Westbrook, Rivers, Clemons SG: Harden, Gordon, McLemore

What has Brad learned in this game that will be helpful for the playoffs?  I kind of annoyed at not seeing rotation players tonight.

He is probably is as paranoid as me about injury.  Would freak out if Brown got knicked . He finally has a set of what appears,to,be five healthy starters .  He is trading practice time for protection.   I see both sides .   If Smart or Kemba get a freak ankle or knee injury , then we have no chance with Wanna or Waters at PG .  Chances are slim at best against LA s at 100% ,  nill without Kemba or Marcus running the show.

I liked seeing Tacko and crew getting minutes , but it is kinda brutal  seeing them play a whole game against Westbrooke and Harden.  Like bringing knifes to a gun fight.
 
I think Brad thinks saving his assets and going into the playoffs at full strengh is his best shot. 

We ll see how it works out. .

Is it me or did Taco change his free throw shot? I thought I remember his form being fine before the break.

He was destroyed because he wasn't quick enough, 2020 LeBron James isn't a quick wing player anymore.

He's a lot like Tatum in that his help defense if a lot better than his man defense.
