    He played mostly well. That drop under the rim hurt. I wonder if he is going to play against more traditional teams or if this is just a matchup option. Either way I'm glad Snyder is finally using him in scenarios where it makes logical sense to not play Tony Bradley.

    Cool that he played. But, um, the obvious choice for backup C in this game (vs Houston) was Royce O’Neale. Q isn’t thinking very nimbly right now.

    Royce was on Harden mostly. And sagging off of Westbrook kinda makes sense for more size.

    Emphasis on “kinda”. I like making Westbrook beat you, but there were better options.

    Well if we are calling the C whoever guards Russ, then Royce was the backup 5 in the 2nd half. That's more semantics tho vs a team like Houston.

    How many possessions did it take for Q to switch Morgan onto Tucker and Royce onto Westbrick? Answer: way too many.

    Bring back Udoh. Run some switching bench units of:

    Conley/Mitchell
    Clarkson
    Ingles
    Morgan
    Udoh

    What we need from Juwan Morgan to become an even deadlier team: rebounds, defensive switches, knockdown open 3s.

    Can’t blame the kid, but Morgan has looked super timid (almost freighted) in his limited minutes.

    Hope that changes, but I have a feeling Brantley wouldn’t be that way. Pure guess though.

    The Rockets fans loved every minute Juwan Morgan was on the floor. He didn't play bad, but someone needs to articulate to me in detail what it was that he did well.

    When Morgan was on the floor the rockets had a hard time scoring. Westbrook took fewer shots at the rim and settled for jump shots. Their offense got confused on who to attack. And we made up a lot of points.

    When Bradley was subbed in Houston attacked him 5 or 6 straight possessions. Subbing in Bradley reminds me of when they lower the cow into the raptor cage on Jurassic park. Easy meal. It was nice to see Snyder sub out of that sitch.
