Have to continue to rely on quality depth of Frank, Lee, Dougie, KOQ as the adjustments get made.

Those two guys are gonna really try to bully KP. Aww man I can't wait for this game!

KP got 7" and 9" on these fools. KP is going to feast on them and score 40. They are going to try Qi Zhou on KP to disrupt him a little with length and KP will destroy him too.

I'm curious what our game plan will be defensively. They like to let it fly from 3. I think getting into a up and down race with the Rockets plays into their strengths. I would think letting our defense lead us to transition points is the way to go. That said, easier said than done. Obviously posting them up in the halfcourt should be featured so we hopefully get them in foul trouble

Hoping the fact that D'Antoni and Harden rubbed it in Knicks faces during pre-season game is NOT forgotten/forgiven by Knicks and we actually come out with a GREAT/SMART defensive effort.

Me personally - I'd have Kanter chase Anderson outside and have KP play inside and defend the Harden/Capella pick and roll.

Anderson doesn't move much I think Kanter could at least chase him off long 3 point looks while KP patrols the paint against deadly pick-roll.

Jack had been pretty good too.... don't sleep on Eric Gordon though. He's averaging 24.9 points a game!

I wish we would have got him instead of Lee

You bring up the point that there is already evidence on what not to do against Houston. They should be able to get a sound game plan going.

You are also hinting at shot blocking as a way to stop the capela pick and roll. You stop the pick and roll through physicality. KP jumping up to catch a pass or block a dunk attempt is not a concrete solution. Also Kanter is scared to death of stepping 15ft away from the basket. You would think there was a cliff out there.

I can't stress enough as it sticking to what works... Kanter has been doing a better job with the on court help of his teammates to stop the ball on defense. That allows KP to lurk more easily. Our perimeter guys seem organized enough to pack the paint and still make the correct rotations forcing the offense to make extra passes... I think that's the right course of action. Harden is gonna have to habe a career game to beat us.... at least that's what I hope. Wooooo!

Agree. Harden was over 35 minutes in a preseason blowout.

Nixluva is posting triangle screen grabs, even when nobody asks - Fishmike. LOL So are we going to reference that thread like the bible now? "The thread of Wroten Page 14 post 9" - EnySpree
