Gross.

Undersized SG with a mediocre shot that has "defensive potential if he can adjust to not having the ball in his hands"...

I like this part: "Lacks defensive intensity, especially off the ball, as he has a habit of floating around the court instead of remaining engaged ... Looks lost at times on offense when the ball isn’t in his hands"

Sounds like he would fit right in.

How about Terry Rozier?

He's filling in well for Irving

Not sure if Hill, Thompson and Smith could crack the starting lineup of many non-playoff teams.

Big game for Houston tonight. Can't go to Oakland down 0-2.

I think they must get more touches for Capela. More dribble penetration from Harden should accomplish that. Still don't understand why he stopped doing that in the second half of game 1. Didn't see anything that the Warriors were doing differently. Harden settled. He shot 3's well, but he took their only inside presence out of the game.

Unlikely Ariza gets four first half fouls again. That should help. They need him on the floor.

I think this one will be close(r). But Warriors pull it out.

Even not as a basketball player, he seems like a generally decent person



Him and Westbrook, never hear any untoward stories.

Harden gets bounced from the playoffs last season, and he flat-out gave up, and he couldn't get to the club quick enough when it was over.

I don't know, tell me who plays harder than James or Westbrook. Who takes it as seriously as they do? I'm a fan of that. You don't have to like them, but you should appreciate what you are seeing. The league is not trying to make them better than they are.

James is on another level. Poor basketball players (and coaches) take rides on his coattails to the finals.

Now, if you want to have a James vs. Jordan discussion, that could be fun. But don't bring the personal nonsense to that discussion, because James is squeaky clean compared to Jordan.


I held a long grudge, probably unfair, against James for leaving Cleveland in that fashion. But the dude has earned my respect. He's unbelievable.



Understandable, especially the fashion.

Personally, I think his low point may have been when he and Wade mocked Nowitzki for being sick in the 2011 Finals.

He's made a few mistakes along the way, but he's not punching teammates, and I'm not seeing him repeating the mistakes.

"The Decision" was a huge mistake, but I don't blame him for leaving. He signed multiple contracts with Cleveland and they did nothing to put a team around him. He did his part and then some.

I kind of blame him for stupidly going back....

Netted a ring, but he had better options.

Less touches for Capela, and they're playing well.

Houston has been on point defensively.

Curry really struggling beyond the arc.

Houston blew an opportunity to stretch that lead out before half. Could cost them.

GS looked totally demoralized. They completely stopped defending.

But that little 5-0 run for GS to end the half could loom big.

I recall that.

The Wolves should pay you, but how good are you at getting along with a stubborn idiot?

Houston has played very fast and very physical. Beating up and attacking Curry a lot.

They have.

Curry doesn't look right.

Golden State isn't getting much moving toward the rack.

Impressive first half for the Rockets.

Ariza has had a really damn good career. Hard not to like that cat.

Okay, Houston with a great bounce back. Shortened up that rotation, and Gordon has been fantastic.
