"It's unbelievable this. Let's keep the show the young guy. But it's not just this town. It's every town Mace they fall in love with the guys. They draft that. So when I was younger, I worked at Fox Sports radio. I did national overnights for them. And I remember being on in Boston during the cage e trait, right. And there were people literally calling me wait wanna give up Alhaarth's tended. I'll Jefferson right out Jeffers, Gerald green like we don't want to give up their guy guy for Kevin Garnett. Yeah. That was like, are you guys stupid? Like have you lost your mind, who is the angels team that would never trade anyone stoneman? Yeah. Bill stone can't train them. We raised them can farm. That's ridiculous. If you. Can get one of the top five or six players in the league you get him. Whatever put him with another one of the top five or six players. Correct. And by the way, then you still have thirty something million cap space to surround those guys with with complementary colors this a little bit too is. And this comes up all the time on, on the Twitter machine that they look at the Angelo, and they look at Julius Randle and they say we gave up on those guys too soon. So what they're not game changers though, you know what I'm saying could they have gotten more for them or should they have gotten more valley for them? Yes. But that's that's on the front office that, that has nothing, by the way. I'm that's not even the guy I worry the most rat who got away. If you say thank you take one back that got away. Bring back Lopez refer three million dollars. Yeah. I mean you gave Michael Beasley that money. Hey, freddie. What did we see with this Joshua fight is he does? Is he a glass jars? He not what we thought he was okay. A lot of people. Have spoken out against Anthony Joshua and the British fans who now can speak to American fans whenever they want through social media are very vocal about their guy as they should be. But a lot of old school boxing is have all talked about his defense, being much more than suspect is just not there. And then they talk about the chin and the example that the old school guys all give was the fight. He had against that, that light heavyweight, Sasha, whatever's last name was not pavilion, but something like that. Right. And this guy is a light heavyweight. All right. He's just a Russian amateur guy who has the Russian amateur style. Everything is not that hard to figure out and he wanted Joshua. And this guy was given up thirty five pounds to Joshua and wobbled him. So everybody and Dante Wilders has been the most vocal about it. He was the one saying, you know, this guy has been ducking me. He's a bum. You can talk about me throwing punches all you want. But this guy has no defense. He backed straight up and if I hit him with my right hand when he back straight. He's dead. What it Anthony Joshua do he backed straight up. Yep. You got all your weight on your back foot. There's nowhere else for you to go. And you got clocked with a right hand and they also got stung with a left hook in a bunch of other shots. Right. But that overhand right. Exposed him bad, if I'm him or as people, I don't even want him taking the rematch, so you don't have to doesn't really have to. It's his choice. The rematch triggered by the contract is what can yes he doesn't look, Bob Arum could easily go to Dante's opponent Luis Ortiz and be like, hey, here's ten million dollars. You're injured. These happened every a winning. John kissing Joshua's, next fight should be wilder. I think if he's going to blow the window, I wouldn't wanna lose to the same guy twice, if he does he will never get to while, especially when the guy looks like that. And once that guy knows he can take your best punch, and you did not come out, and he knows you can't take his best punch. It's a lot easier to be enough that loss isn't a fight with wilder much less sexy. Of course, less sexy. But what else do you do like this guy? And I love him but he wrecked the heavyweight division..

"Most by a first or second year player in Lakers history and the most since Magic Johnson scored twenty one and a half as a second year player back in the nineteen eighty eighty one season Lakers, a four point lead back out to Houston with marquess share and John berry. Thanks a lot. Breaking Calcutta's stepped up JBL forty one points against the pistons earlier this month in the thirty two on thirty averaging eighteen points with LeBron James twenty two without. And I think I mentioned earlier at the December that he had twenty two a game on forty eight percent shooting shock. Thirty percent. He got off to an awful start, obviously. But this guy confident in stroke, it he's got to go on here on the early going Kouzmin at the line where the Lakers are dead last in the NBA misses the first free throw. They actually had their best free throw shooting night of the season Thursday night. They went nineteen of Twenty-one coups mitch's split of hair and the Lakers have a five point lead seventeen twelve rockets. They'll bring it up six twenty to go in the first and James Harden's pass from about thirty feet across court to no one in particular. And they turned it over unforced error is the first turnover of the evening though for Houston. Six minutes James Nunnelee, just signed a ten day contract on Wednesday played on that game. Wednesday against Brooklyn is in years Caldwell hope for three. Nope. Offensive rebound Chandler against the small ball rockets Taylor wheels. In the lane draws contact on a shot at the rim. Tyson Chandler will get himself to free throws three offensive rebounds. Now for the Lakers in the early going. Definitely something that Houston is going to have to deal with Gerald green. First foul, and that's a good question for Luke Walton. You know, they're going to go small. So do you chess match with them and go small or do you try as they are trying here early? We haven't even seen zubec- yet to use that. You know, be who you are and Tyson Chandler happens to be one of the great offense is leagues ever seen. Maybe not the greatest free after that. This hit the backboard. I know you can't get out of the way you play. I mean, that's what Don Nelson. Remember, the great daughter who wants so many games in this league. He would try to get you to do that. Remember, he tried Anthony Mason running the point guard gets you into doing things that you're not accustomed to. You still got to be who you are.

"But I think the true part is they found a way to slow Clin. Cappella and a big part of that was brook Lopez. I mean, Trey you said it there. The bucks defenders were just playing to take away hard and going left like to to a degree. I can't remember seeing in an NBA game. Really? They are just so far funneling them to his right. And then Brooke? He would step up time and time again, generally making sort of difficult for heart. And when the ball did find its way to Capella he got back at times to other get the block or to deter shot. So they found a really way to take out Capella who hardens always looking for once he blows by everybody. But yeah, Hardin Italy Houston offense was what they slowed down right against envy, had PJ Tucker, Gerald green hitting six threes and hot and seven and when those guys on firing than just put so much more emphasis on what John did because the forty two and eleven is great in the six assists. But when he doesn't get that support and Mike tiny vice Lee played six guys last night. I mean other guys got on the call, but he basically went with six including Gerald green. And if those guys on nothing down the shots then Houston their offense. Does stagnant. Particularly in that third quarter looked like maybe they legs got a little bit heavy. They couldn't get an easy basket and Milwaukee pulled away from it. So I don't think they slowed down John Totten. But in the big picture, they definitely slowed down the Houston offense. Big picture. Chris Paul, and Eric Gordon are going to be on this team at some point. So it's easy to forget. Because we talk about James harden night in night out their second and third best scores aside from clink about the guys who can score the ball aren't playing. So a lot is on James Harden's shoulders. And yes, the entire defensive focused as it was with the nuggets double team was different yesterday take away that left. So it was it was cool to see that. Because. No, I don't think a team has really done it degree, Malcolm Brogdon was literally just sitting there on his right hand. And he's a very good defender. It was really cool to see that being said, I think it kind of just threw him off because we haven't seen that quite yet. But you don't throw off the VP really this guy practices moves day in and day out. Do we really think he can say you're saying sees it time and time again here if other teams try to implement this. He's going to figure out what he did last night at a really really good game last night. But there were some bad turnovers. Yeah. But he can still step back and hit some shots. And it was a three point game with them. They go so one or two of those positions. Go the other way, and the rockets could've won this guy. Big win for the bucks being the rockets. Ten game winning streak at home pretty impressive. Right. Find a one and another ten for blew out that Pacers last night giving them four straight wins to start the new year. They're still just getting the east, but they've climbed up to ninth in the league on offense at per hot. Couple of months while the always great defense remains tied for second. They went to game seven accomplished finals last season. So true or false. The Celtics are who we thought they would think this is sort of true. I mean, they got off to that ten and ten start and kudos to Brad Stevens. He was tinkering. He was trying to find a starting lineup that would work, and I think he's founded here too. That was putting in to Marcus's into the starting lineup, Marcus, smart and Marcus Morris. That's when the offense really has caught fire here over now, what feels like six weeks. It's impressive. I think it helps the guy like Jaylen Brown to like, not only smart.
"gerald green" Discussed on Open Floor
"Well, he's unbelievable. And for the last couple of weeks has been on another planet and even even tonight against the nuggets. I mean, the nuggets were sort of trapping him trying to get the ball out of his hands. And he was doing a good job finding open shooters. And so that's why guys like Gerald green PJ. Tucker went off and had big nights. In addition to Capella. But then there was this little four or five minutes stretch at the end of the second quarter where he may Jamal Murray full. But then he I think that sort of like flip a switch with him where he just got really confident and spent the next couple minutes taking thirty footstep axe and draining them in very in the face of various nuggets defenders, and it's just. It's incredible. How easy he makes it look at its. And he's been doing it every night for three straight years. It's a beautiful thing to see. I'm glad you found Jesus because it's a beautiful thing to watch. Yeah. Well, it's it's certainly interesting. It's it's like nothing else in the NBA. Anyways. Moving quick, though is he your VP or Yana still? I would say Jaanus I think that he may be the favorite though. Right. I mean coming off that warriors game that was sort of like hardens Heisman moment. And maybe that's coming too soon. But it's hard for anybody to forget that highlight at this point in the year. Yeah. I mean, I I'm impressed by your restrict because you started with yada. And I was worried you're going to go down to Houston kinda brainwash. Like I did. I still think it's Janas because pardoned was pretty slow to start the season. I mean, it took them a little while to ramp up obviously Houston's record reflected that as well. Janas came out of the gate roaring, and he's still. Roaring into me that consistency is the tiebreaker at this point. Now, if our two continues to play like he's been playing here for the last two or three weeks, and he just keeps going through the end of the regular season, which he's definitely capable of doing his arguments going to be very strong. He's probably gonna win based on momentum. But I think in terms of consistency and team impact right now, I would still say Yana should be viewed as the favorite even though the odds makers, and I think most of the consensus does not agree with me. Yeah. There's no question that if he keeps this. There's just no argument really because he's he's averaging thirty five and twelve or thirteen and you mean, Chris Paul is going to come back and things are going to start to normalize a little bit and hard, and we'll come back from outer space just because he won't have to be that great every night. But right now when you watch this rockets team, it's like Hardin pitching it out to Austin rivers, Gerald green and Daniel house, and somehow it's working because he just put. It's that much stress on any defense. He faces. It's pretty wild. That's that's that's another thing to track though, real quick with Paul. I mean, if he comes back, you know, is he going to be just a role player like his whole job going to change is not going to be this like to headed balance healthier place for him to be. Yeah. That's sort of what I was getting it's like maybe just ramp down even more than what he was trying to do earlier in the season. And just say, you know, what just be like sixty percent of the guy you were last year rather than you know, eighty five or ninety percent whatever age related decline in there. Just go ahead and just basically turned him into a spot up shooter on offense. I the worst things could happen for us. It's awesome. Yeah. I like that approach but moving on to the Lakers, Jake says should the Lakers be active this upcoming trade deadline, if so what are the short term and long term ramifications of acting now rather than waiting Brandon Ingram is looking really wobbly. And in my opinion, not worth holding onto I feel like his value is decreasing day by day..

"You'll you you've probably already voted on it by the time. You're listening to this anything else from this game, though, you know, again, another quality rockets win they continue to to rip off these ws here without Chris Paul without air, Gordon and last night, it was Gerald green threes Tucker and Gerald green along with heart and doing his thing. I thought it was an impressive win period. James harden, wasn't you know, the sexy James harden we've seen over the last month. He had a good game because he's James harden. But not an crazy good game. And you don't have Chris Ball. And you don't have Eric Gordon, and you still win because as PJ Tucker said, hey, we've got our own big three hear me, Chris Paul and James art, he's he's throwing himself. He's wide. Yeah. Well, I don't know if he's he said his own big three. Maybe he wasn't including himself. He just said to my own. L is playing well now that was a good win. That was a good win because they doubled harden along. Yeah. It was pretty pretty ordinary. I thought last night Capella just roll to the rim. Whenever you want. Jesse do and they and it worked for big. I mean going into the game. If you said James harden was going to have thirty two you'd think well, they're not gonna win without Chris Paul, and Eric Gordon, but everybody else made them pay. Tucker was on fire, fourteen assists matches up pretty well. With cappella getting thirty one points, right Yokich can't really hang with cappella when he has space to run or has a little bit of a runway to get away from him. So they would double drop it dunk mode. Yeah. Do meet in the playoffs. It's going to be a very difficult match him saying four Yokich with that. They're just going to put him in every pick and roll because you've got Capello the rim runner. And and then it might come down to like. Yeah. Maybe the smart thing is to continue to double heart and get it out of his hands because he's either going to drive find a Cappello or do a step back three. So you make a Gerald green? Try and hit six threes you make Tucker try and hit seven threes. We'll try us them. Yes, you're right. And he's streaky. I mean, he's on he's on. But you know, we've seen the rockets missed twenty seven straight threes before then. We've seen Hardin have turnover problems especially in the playoffs. So if you're making it tough on getting the ball of his hands. Maybe that ball just floated a little bit too much in the passing lanes Goodwin Goodwin from the rockets and the other thing from last night that I wanted to hear from you guys on about the team specifically Gregg Popovich, she tied Jerry sloan's one thousand two hundred and twenty one career wins. Thanks to the Spurs. One nineteen one zero seven win at Detroit that puts a pop to third all times that race loan third or second. Can't remember off don't matter. Okay. Who are top too? Who are top to? Well, Lenny Wilkins, George and Don Nelson. Yeah. Yeah. No, George, Don is one dons one Lenny to done Lenny and now, Greg with Jerry. But the Spurs are they the hottest team in the league right now? Or is that the rockets is that another team like, maybe the bucks or they've been unbelievably offensive offensively since I guess December first, right? Yeah. Well, that was that was coming off to the big losses at Minnesota. And then at home to Houston they lost by thirty. And since then pub Pub Vicenzo Vicenzo matches. matches said, okay. This is not supposed basketball. Let's just go back to doing what we do. You know, not the prettiest, but it's just a fee, effective and officiant, and I I guess if you're talking pure streaks, they probably the hottest team right now. Because obviously the rockets lost and then the bucks lost as well to the raptors. But that you watch the Spurs, and you think is there even an all-star on that team. I mean, I know probably they probably get one..

"Welcome into memorial Hermann post game show. Everybody rockets fall tonight in Portland one ten one on one the six game winning streak is snapped rockets now twenty two and sixteen on the season Portland at twenty three and seventeen after getting the win tonight. Really the strength of the Portland lead in this game for the entirety of the second half was built on what they did at the end of the second quarter when they went on a twenty two three run to take thirteen point lead in that game. Austin rivers carried the rockets in the first half, he had seventeen at the break and the rockets. Would fight their way back into it as they are known to do with James harden getting going early in the third quarter art across the timelines straightaway. Right left back left. Then right, then back to the left hand will drop it in a little teardrop rd. That teardrop of the two point variety. Followed by the three point variety here. Harn left with the free throw line austat back. Three is up in the first three ball of the game for the beard. That cut the lead to eight and things start to get a little bit more interesting. And then it was click cappella splitting a couple of defenders for a basket. Just like that at thirteen point lead again for Portland. Here's capacity kids to blazer defenders. And he throws it down. Emphatic dunk fair cut the Portland lead to eleven and then Gerald green who had a nice second half got into the act white handrail in the paint turns lanes fadeaway ten footer front rim side glass through. Nice move and shot there for green almost as nice as the three that he hit next. We'll keep it at seventy to fifty eight with six twenty two remaining in the third. Green open straightaway. Three is on the way in. After a Damian Lillard three put them back up by sixteen harden would cut that back about three twelve. Yeah. Straightaway from twenty-five seventy seven sixty four and they kept chipping away is hard and found James Ennis for a bucket come away with his aren't looking for an incident, he'll drop it in for a nice mid court feed. Portland's half court game didn't work. The rockets did. So they were looking to get back within single digits as the third quarter came to a close. And James harden, made it happen aren't right side angle going into layman's. Get spy Lehman throws it up drops it in. Missile. So the rockets would win the third thirty one twenty seven James harden with twenty in that third quarter, and it was eighty six seventy seven trailblazers as we went to the fourth James harden on the bench to start the fourth quarter, which meant that Austin rivers went to work once again behind him to rivers three point line left right hand dribble. Drive for Austin throws it off back around in. Austin rivers now has nineteen and then Clint cappella not known as an assist guy. But a nice nice bounce pass on this play. The Gerald green gives it a cappella bouts passed a green hand Throwdown. And it's a five point game. Yep. But that five point differential was as close as the rockets would get after that Portland took another double digit lead before. Austin rivers would bring the rockets back yet again six and a half remaining in the game the sets a screen rivers floats in the lame the left hand got two more. Austin rivers has been such a valuable addition eight hundred fifty for the four he's got twenty one that'll be a rocket high. And that's what he finished with twenty one. He played.

"James harden has had a December. Remember, man, he's taken on the grizzlies here early in the first quarter heart. It's a step back over Kyle Anderson. This his ten game of thirty five points are more James harden is doing is phenomenal. He was not in my top five MVP conversations literally two weeks ago. And now these leading the category sweet dime there to clink cappella rockets up ten second quarter twenty. Oh. Oh, don't don't touch Shula step back when exact yeah. Brackets of seventeen there. Look at the ball movement. One more time as Mike Dan, Tony says, Jane, William the ball, find energy or the ball just Feinstein's that too that works here. Don't then back at the buzzer. Twenty at the half at the half the game. Just insane. Like, I said I had the first half I'm going. He can. I mean, I think everybody had the same look vices. Like, what are you gonna do with this? Yeah. I don't think there's any that you let's go to the third quarter rockets up by twenty pardon Harry's. Again, he's maestro. When it comes to this drawing before to greenie, that's awesome. Angry with the basketball. That's little. Step left. What is that in that work? Then he gets to the pre just continually getting to the free throw line. Twenty seven free throws attempted that is a single game record for the rockets there. Here's another three point shot, by the way, he's doing this without era, Gordon, and without CPA three rocket twin one thirteen to one eleven hardened finishes with a triple double forty-three, thirteen and ten is ten forty point. Triple double James harden again in December to remember. He's averaging thirty six point four points per game in December most by any player since the guy that you may be familiar with Michael Jordan back in nineteen eighty six. I voice heard onto the highlight. That was of course, Jay will hair pumping up the beard, which. You can't. How's he going to be stopped though? That's how I want to know when I don't think you can stop him because it's the brilliance in how the rockets actually have their lineup. They surrounding with reports shooters. So you have Austin rivers you have gale house. You have Gerald green guys who are spaced out the floor, and you have clink Capella who understands his role as a guard when your big just wants to come and set screens for you. And hey, people and rebounds. That's a dream come true and these at eight spinal crazy rate like I literally said today's ago, not having my top by NBC candidates. And now, he's number one number how do you integrate Chris Paul here real quick? I he just plays along with James harden when he's playing that way. All you need Chris Paul to do is to make plays off the ball and be ready to be catching shoe player. That's all you need them to do. It only helps we'll see if you can keep this pace out. It'll be on incredible ten and certain MVP candidate there as you as you're calling at this point ten days ago that I'm not so much. I come in our too.
