Rose with at least 3 plays where his body wouldn't do what his mind wanted.

--edit--

Right as I say that, he makes 2 nice plays back-to-back.

Amazing how Houston still can't buy a wide-open 3.

League sources tell @TheAthleticMIN that Tyus Jones is unavailable tonight. Had swelling in his knee. Tried to go in warmups but it was too stiff.

Rose keeps bringing it and bringing it!
So nice to have some bench players that can contribute offensively.

Its a good thing because Teague has been awful since coming back.

Hit some free throws and we're in the lead.
They are showing the effort it takes to play playoff basketball.

He's working hard on defense, but has been mostly invisible on offense.
Need more than that.

Wiggins and Teague are killing us.

Also, Houston only has 1 turnover, and it was unforced (Capela stepped out of bounds rebounding the ball).

Even his "defense" has been more about Houston bricking open shots.

So...what exactly does Taj give us in a game like this?

His offense is non-existent and his defense skills don't do anything to slow down what Houston wants to do.

He doesn't belong on the floor against Houston.

In eight games against them this season, he has contributed next to nothing.

He doesn't defend the 3 point line and he's not at all a rim protector. He's a super rugged post defender playing against a team that likely won't show 1 post move by a big all game...

Good news - I’m out. Not sitting through a quarter of garbage time.

100 points through 3.

Looks like our "Playoff Defense" was just willing them to miss open shots.

Harden dominated that quarter. No answer for him.

The only other team to score 50 in a quarter in a playoff game: LA Lakers 51 vs. Pistons on March 31, 1962.
