Re: [16-7] A New Age! | Trades + @ Raptors + PRACTICE??

Postby Martti. on Thu Feb 14, 2013 4:48 am

I'm not sure yet whether I sign him, he'll probably be a back-up to Lin. Douglas isn't doing much anyway. 10-15 minutes are available.

I really hope I can get Nerlens Noel in the draft. I simmed with the Rockets once before and got him and this draft class has him with 5 signature skills already.

Lin and Harden trump Melo's 41 in Lin's return to MSG.

Carmelo Anthony had 41 points on a staggering 17-23 shooting, but it wasn't enough to overcome the back-court of the visiting Rockets, as Harden and former Knick Jeremy Lin combined for 63 points and 16 assists.

Though Carmelo got some help from Tyson Chandler and Iman Shumpert, the Knicks defense couldn't contain the hot-shooting Rockets. who were 56% from the field, including 11/17 (64%) from three-point range. The Knicks in comparison made good on just 48% of their shots, a poor 2-9 from deep.

Despite less turnovers and a big lead in points the paint, the Knicks couldn't click. Carmelo played hero-ball, going 1-on-5 on offense. This showed in the box score, as Amar'e Stoudemire had just 2 shot attempts in 28 minutes.

Box Score

HOU (17-7) | 25 | 25 | 29 | 30 || 109 ||

Mulling whether I should do the Patterson-Robinson deal. All the pieces are there and it would work. I like T-Rob a lot and I think the Rockets won that deal. What do you guys think?

I won't do the Morris trade, he's a key guy off my bench, not giving him away for a second rounder.. :P

I'd say you trade for T-Rob. I have a Laker Association, and he'a doing real well for me. He's a guy that can give you 15-10 night in and night out, honestly.

Get T-Rob! He is a beast. So there is no reason to not do that trade. I'd also do the Morris trade for realism, but if you don't like it, it's okay. Great win over NYK.

I'm gonna do the deal, so I'll need a back-up PG and Beverley is not in my roster I think. AI signing won't happen.

Will also do some other deals, like Jordan Crawford and Redick.

Rockets trade for Thomas Robinson

Image

The Houston Rockets and the Sacramento Kings have agreed on a deal centered around the #5 overall pick Thomas Robinson.

Robinson, alongisde Fransisco Garcia and Tyler Honeycutt will go to Houston in exchange for Patrick Patterson, Toney Douglas and Cole Aldrich.

The deal should be completed by this afternoon, so the new players for the Rockets are expected in uniform as they take on the Thunder.

Robinson is expected to crack the starting line-up, while the playing time for Garcia and Honeycutt will be limited.


Celtics trade for Crawford

Image

The Washington Wizards have agreed to trade sixth man Jordan Crawford to the Celtics for seldom-used rookie center Fab Melo.

Crawford's value to the Wizards has decreased with the addition of Bradley Beal.


Redick headlines 6-player Bucks-Magic deal.

Image

With the Magic going into full tanking mode in hopes of drafting Nerlens Noel, Cody Zeller or Shabazz Muhammed, they have traded guard JJ Redick with PG Ish Smith and F Gustavo Ayon to the Bucks for guards Doron Lamb and Beno Udrih and F Tobias Harris.

The Magic feared they couldn't sign Redick to a long-term deal during the summer. Rumors circulated, that Redick could ask up to 10M annually.

Rockets re-sign Shaun Livingston

Image

Following the trade to acquire Thomas Robinson, the Rockets have signed PG Shaun Livingston for the rest of the season.

The trade sent Toney Douglas to Sacramento, leaving the back-up PG vulnerable for the Rockets, as rookie Scott Machado hasn't played all year. Livingston spent the pre-season with the Rockets, where he averaged 2.5 points and 3.3 assists in 4 appearances.

The Rockets also worked out veterans like Allen Iverson, Mike James and Delonte West.

To make room for the signing, the Rockets have placed G Daequan Cook on the waiver list.

Rockets drop fourth straight, fall to Thunder

The Rockets returned home from a three-game road trip, going 0-3 with losses to the Bulls, Timberwolves and the Spurs, and were hoping for a win, but they were facing the conference-leading Thunder.

The first half was really uncharacteristic for both teams, who are offensive orientated. The first half ended with both teams having scored just 36 points. The Thunder were 32% from the field and just 10% from deep. The Rockets did shoot better, 41% overall but had 10 turnovers.

Kevin Durant had just 4 points in the first half, going 2-5 from the field. Kevin Martin led the visitors in the first half with 10 points. James Harden had 21 in the first half.

The Thunder went on to shoot 61% in the second half, scoring 62 points in the second half. The Rockets couldn't stop Kevin Durant, who scored 20 points in the second half. Westbrook had 9 of his season-high 14 assists in the second half.

Thomas Robinson had 8 points and 11 rebounds in his debut, Tyler Honeycutt had 2 points and Shaun Livingston had 2 assists.

Box Score

He's rather quiet, I guess I don't know hot to use him correctly. He gets rebounds, but I have to work hard with Harden or Lin to get him an open shot. Definitely underachieving in this, looking at how well he does IRL.

I think you should just trade him back to his home town Orlando. In all seriousness perhaps trade him for Moe Harkless. I know the Magic would want Parsons, and Hark would fit really well as a defensive specialist for you on the wing.

Yeah fair enough. Leonard would be nice, but I don't think he is that much better than Parson's right now. Parson's is potentially the best two way player the Rockets have.

Rockets pull away from Hornets in fourth behind Lin and Parsons

James Harden scored 20 points in the first half and Jeremy Lin had a big fourth quarter with 10 points as the Rockets pulled away in the end against the visiting Hornets for a 19-point win.

The teams entered the game with reversed records and with the Rockets being 9 games above .500, were expected to cruise to a win.

And at the start, it looked like that was going to happen. The Rockets jumped out to 5-0 and 16-6 leads in the first quarter. But with some mistimed substitutions by the Rockets and good guard-play from the Hornets, the visitors came back to trail by just 2 after Xavier Henry's jumper. Jeremy Lin ended the quarter with a buzzer-beating jumper from the foul line, giving Houston a 4-point lead

In the second quarter, Eric Gordon made the Rockets defense look silly, getting to the paint with ease. Gordon had 16 points at the half on 6-9 shooting. Also, the Rockets did a very poor job handling the ball with 9 first-half turnovers.

The game was surprisingly close in the third quarter as well. The Rockets did a better by committing just 3 turnovers in the second half. Eric Gordon knocked down a jumper with 3 seconds left to tie the game after three quarters.

The fourth was a whole different story. Jeremy Lin was aggressive, being a playmaker for most of the game. He had a big height advantage on Nate Robinson and took advantage of it. Despite getting blocked twice by the 5'9 PG, Lin was 7-8 on shots he didn't get blocked.

Harden was quiet in the fourth as he was constantly double-teamed. Parsons had 3 big dunks in the fourth quarter and the Rockets held the Hornets to just 3 field goals in the final period.

Key stat of the game was probably the scoring of the Hornets front-line - #1 pick Anthony Davis was scoreless and Ryan Anderson scored 3 points. Davis' only noteworthy play was him getting dunked on by Chandler Parsons.

Box Score

HOU (21-11) | 26 | 26 | 22 | 32 || 106 ||

Rockets blow out Bucks as Harden drops 40

The Milwaukee Bucks have been involved in a lot of trades this season, bringing in guys like Jeff Green, Royce White and JJ Redick. However, chemistry is still low as proved by a 30-point home loss to the Rockets.

The game was a blow-out from the start as the Rockets quickly grabbed a 7-0 lead and the game never got closer then that.

James Harden was scoring with ease, Jeremy Lin was harassing the Bucks guards with stellar defense, Larry Sanders seemed to grab every possible rebound and Chandler Parsons was catching lobs.

The new additions each scored 2 points (Green, Redick, White) and the new starting C Gustavo Ayon, who has averaged 11 points and 7 rebounds since moving to the starting spot, was also held to just 2 points. Larry Sanders outplayed every big on the opposing team in just 19 minutes.

After the game, rumors started speculating that the Bucks may be ready to trigger another deal, this involving Knicks PG Jason Kidd.

Nah, this game was a lie. JJ doesn't score only 2 points.

It was odd, he wasn't aggressive at all. Didn't come off screens, didn't create for others. I think he had 2 or 3 shots in 20 minutes or so.

Robinson has best scoring game as a Rocket, helps Rockets roll past Celtics

Thomas Robinson has been pretty consistent as the Rockets starting power forward. The #5 overall pick has had 4 double-doubles so far and has averaged 9 points and 7 rebounds. Robinson has been told to be more aggressive and he was against the Celtics.

He had 14 points in the first half on 7/8 shooting with 5 rebounds. He played well off the pick-and-roll with James Harden, who had 12 assists in the game.

Harden was guarded by Avery Bradley, a great defender, but the league's leading scorer saw that as another challenge. Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik were not factors offensively as they had their hands full of Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett.

The Rockets held the Celtics to 40% shooting, who fell to .500.

Box Score

HOU (25-12) | 21 | 27 | 31 | 23 || 102 ||
BOS (18-18) | 19 | 22 | 23 | 18 || 82 ||

Great game for T-Rob. It would be cool to see how his head is after a trade in his rookie season.

Also, I think 2K underrated Boston this year, they struggle mightily throughout the season, heck in my 2k13, they're a lottery team.

Boston really wasn't what I was expecting, especially on their home floor.

Robinson out-hustles The Manimal, helps Rockets break out of slump

After a very hot start by the Rockets, being 11-2 out of the gate and 25-12 in mid-January, the Rockets hit a slump after a road win @ Philadelphia

They've gone on to lose 8 out of 9, with losses to the Clippers, Nets, Jazz and Bobcats to name a few. The only win in that stretch was against Denver, beating them by 3 after Chandler Parsons made a game-winning three with 1.3 on the clock.

January has been a very odd month for the young Rockets, as they started the month 6-1 and 1-8 to finish. The game @ Denver could at least give some peace to the Rockets.

James Harden and Thomas Robinson seemed to be on a different level then any other player on the court in the first half. Harden scored with just 4 seconds gone by, making first of his 7 threes. Thomas Robinson seemed to be all over the boards.

Both had 18 points in the first half, Robinson also had 8 rebounds. Combined, they were 14-22 from the field, giving the Rockets a 15 point lead at the half.

The second half was a different story. Despite the continued excellence of Robinson and Harden, the Nuggets came back in a hurry with their up-tempo style.

Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons had been struggling, Lin missed his first 10 shots from the field. In the middle of the fourth quarter, Lin's struggles paired with almost no bench production, the Nuggets were down by just 2.

Harden re-entered the game, but was double-teamed on every touch. Luckily, Jeremy Lin scored all of his 6 points in the final 5 minutes of the game. James Harden added 16 points in the fourth quarter, racking up 44, a new career-high.

Box Score

HOU (28-20) | 31 | 23 | 25 | 24 || 103 ||
DEN (25-22) | 17 | 22 | 26 | 31 || 96 ||
