    Only the second team to score 100 points on them this season.

    I must say I am impressed with Mike Conley, after looking like a bust for so long, he's FINALLY looking like one of the best PG's in the league. He's a lot better than his numbers indicate as he plays with Gasol, Z-Bo and Rudy Gay. He's also one of the best defenders at his position and a very good floor general.

    Even though Lin had 15 and 11, Conley played very good man defense on him all night.

    Oh yeah, and no "it sucks" anymore lol!

    Yall got a good squad, but we both know that game was a fluke. Griz have a history of taking the weaker oppenents lightly and beating up on the stronger opponents...

    Yall do have a good team, but I think ya'll will stay in the middle of the pack if ya'll don't find someone who can score besides Harden.

    We have the youngest team in the league, y'all are in win-now mode, of course we're weaker right now. But give it a couple of years and Houston will be the best in that conference. Harden is 23 and will be a top 10 player soon, Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons are also very good and are both 24, Asik is already a top 3 defensive center and only 26. Plus I'm pretty sure y'all have no cap space left. We still have enough to add a close-to-the-max player.

    Rockets caught the Grizz at end of a tough 4 game stretch.

    Same thing San Antonio did a few weeks ago.

    Bulls, Bucks, Mavs, Rockets in five days.

    I'll take 3-1. Especially after losing 3 straight.

    The Rockets will fade when the season gets long. They are so young but fun to watch.

    The cap space problem for the grizz will be solved after this season.

    Rudy might go but hell they played their best basketball without him up until this year. This Grizz's new ownership will get players. I'd look for a big time trade in the off season.

    You are right though, the Grizz have about a 3-5 five window to do something special before they have to rebuild it again. Houston's future is bright.

    Rudy Gay is overrated, I agree.

    If you like overlooked unknowns that will be a star, keep an eye on Chandler Parsons, plus he's white too, so you can be proud! lol

    I think Conley is near a top 5 PG and y'all aren't using him as much as y'all should be! If he dominated the ball as much as Rondo, he would put up the same assist numbers and he's a much better shooter, and just as good as an athlete! Conley needs to get the green light from his coach to take over!

    Conley has been playing well the past couple years, not just this year. I would try and move Gay at the deadline and see what you can get for him. I would try and not let him go for nothing, at least get a pick.

    Rudy Gay isn't overrated at all. I don't hear anyone talking about how good he is.

    I agree with you on Parsons. I remember him at Florida and dude can straight ball. I wanted my Hawks to draft him.

    I'm Lebron James btw.

    You guys do remember that the Rockets drafted Gay and traded him for Shane Battier.
