Now imagine of AD gets hurt because Tucker is hunting for a charge. Such a lame play

If AD gets single coverage he needs to drive to the rim every time.

Good 3rd quarter start. This looks to be AD's worst game. Hopefully he can get going.

Rockets gave up. You can see it with their body language and faces.

I never understand how guards think they can drive through AD and then get a layup. The guy has such long arms that he can recover just by extending his arms.

Can someone tell me who came up with the Bald Eagle nic name? They're using it in the broadcast... And I know Caruso mentioned he liked it as well, but I can't remember if we came up with it or if it came from the lockerroom. I can't remember but I remember when we were all throwing names out there and it came up...

One thing that is concerning about this team is the way they take care of the ball. 15 turnovers against the Clippers won't get it done.

First person I remember saying it is Caron Butler

Yes and no. They can’t turn it over as much but logically you want have 5 smalls going after the ball and passes too like with Houston. Some of it is being careless. Some of it is just that the rockets can swipe and get to balls that Zubac, Nurkic, Whiteside, Harrell will not just off virtue of being small. They led the bubble in balls deflected before they met this team

Would love to see lebron rest this quarter. Maybe get Morris back out there.

Also it needs to be said. Very impressive blocks by AC
