Apparently, the Chris Paul-led huddle in the second quarter of the Nets game is what woke them up and turned them around. It was a good game to watch. They were playing with the intensity they had before both on offense and defense. I didn't get to see the win over the Bulls yesterday, but I suspect it was more of the same plus having Harden back.

There are LOTS of rumors about the Melo experiment in Houston being over. He has been out with "an illness" for the last two games and didn't travel with the team for tonight's game in Denver.

There are also lots of articles saying the Rockets woes are not his fault, but OTOH, maybe he's so disruptive in the locker room or something they are. idk

I saw one article blaming the problems on what Morey did and who he let go during the offseason, but if anyone thinks that the poor performances of Harden and CP3 are because Ariza and LMAM are gone, they're crazy.

And now it's official. He's gone. He was a Rocket for 94 days, depending on how you count it exactly.

Watching them play the Rockets last night, while they looked poor (I think the starters didn't hit a single three-pointer), there weren't any issues to note between them. At one point, when Green messed up, running back they were talking and Green tapped himself taking the blame. Things seemed normal to me in that regard. idk

I'm thinking the Green/Durant thing is not that big of a deal.

I knew the Melo thing wasn't going to work out. I don't know what the Rockets were thinking with that.

So, how about those Raptors, eh?

Blowout swing through Cali even with Kawhi sitting out.

And how about the non-call on Green dislocating JV's thumb? C'mon, man!

I had no idea the Melo Curse would sit on the Rockets after they let him go. Or maybe it's because he's still officially with the team or whatever that situation is.

I can't tell if the Rockets are going to be awesome, terrible, or just blow a great lead to lose on any given night. What fun is that??? idk

We're still waiting for that to stick. The Rockets have been incredibly up and down this year. Last year, we were sure they were dominant. This year, we're sure they COULD be dominant, and sometimes they are, while sometimes they're inexplicable.

Just when the Rockets looked like they were hitting their stride, CP3 pulls a hamstring, again. facepalm So what do the Rockets do? They signed Austin Rivers. Yes, that Austin Rivers, who says he has no beef with Paul. I hope not. The Rockets need a PG for all those times CP3 needs a rest.

Austin Rivers has turned out to be a bit of a revelation, Brandon Knight is starting to find his rhythm, and James Harden is a lock to be the MVP.

I'm just impressed at how quickly he got up.

[knocks on wood]

Even when he gets injured, it doesn't last. The guy isn't close to fragile at all. He just gets back in there, almost every time.

Okay so Brandon Knight is gone but the Rockets have Manimal (he prefers to be called that freak) aka Kenneth Faried, Shumpert, and every new player was a mid-season pickup while all the offseason acquisitions are gone, including Melo. Go figure.

It's hard to believe Faried was let go by the Nets, they hardly played him, and neither did Denver.

Manimal and Capela are playing together sometimes for a "big" lineup, which is fun since the Rockets have been so guard heavy of late.

The one thing that's killing me though is that last season spoiled me. I'm so disappointed when they lose. I do think that part of it is because they're clearly good enough to win every game or nearly that many.

Harden is now solidly second on the list of players with games scoring 30 or more points, behind Wilt Chamberlain in first and ahead of… Wilt Chamberlain in third! Chris Paul has climbed into the top ten of all time assist leaders, despite all those injuries. He's up there somewhere on steals as well.
