I'm guilty. I had no idea he had regressed so much defensively. He was a really good defender a couple of years ago. I'm big enough to admit that I was wrong though.

Small ball for us usually means moving KD to the 4. Since the Rockets play a lot of Terrance Jones, Chandler Parsons and Donatas Motiejunas at the 4 we may need to play a lot of small ball.

He backed him down several times and a couple times Adams was in place for a defensive rebound and he got shoved off his spot and didn't get the rebound. Jefferson is 290 though (and Adams 255 and 20 years old). He'll get bigger and stronger.

Because his combined -38 in the last 2 games wasn't enough?

He's not strong enough to keep him off the block without using his hands. Same with Jefferson. He'll get bigger and stronger.

Your lack of confidence is justified.

Also need to not switch so easily. We switch if they go close to each other even if the guy isn't a threat to go to the basket. Makes it easy for the other team to get the matchup they want. If Howard Picks Harden and Fisher is guarding Harden we end up with Fisher on Howard and Ibaka on Harden without even a real threat of them scoring.

We going to put KD on Howard? Those are the only two physically big enough to keep Howard from getting every rebound and cramming it down.

I think a big key to the game is how tight they call the game. If it is called tight I don't think it'll be good for us because Adams and Thabeet may foul out in a combined 10 minutes and Harden obviously creates contact to get to the line. When we get in games like this too our reaction tends to be to get out of the way which is trouble too. I hope they let them play a little bit.

Having said that I bet we come to play tonight.

And they are a +4.1 per game in their 7 games starting together where as the original starting crew was a -2.2 in 20 games started together.

The new starting group is outperforming the "old" starting group.

The two missing defensive starters are not the problem.

Winning is the main thing. The starters are winning.

Hash has been pretty good. Butler, Jackson , kd, lamb and even Collison have taken turns sucking.

Just reading through the stuff I've missed over the past few hours and many still think we're struggling because we're missing Thabo and perk. You do realize the starting group has been 6.3 ppg better with PJ3 and Adams than they were with Thabo and Perk( and I don't want to hear that we struggled early with Westbrook because we've never struggled more this year than we are now). The problems start when the reserves come in. The starters have not been the problem so Thabo and perk would really not help anything. We also had Thabo when Miami crushed us. We had Thabo when we gave up 125 to the Clippers and we had Thabo when Cleveland scored 112 on us (first three losses of the current slump). The starters have not been the problem.
Thabo was there in the Miami blowout Thabo was there when the clips scored 125 and Thabo was there when cavs scored 112
He's coming back now just like he was then. You can make excuses.
