Malone is a hell of a coach. Game 7 should be fun.

D’Antoni and Houston part ways.

D'antoni resigned before he could be fired.


Actually, his pact had expired. 

So he was a free agent in any event. 

Also, what is the over-under on the Rockets' owner tearing it all down?

Maybe they’ll hire Fizdale to fizz things up? 🤡

Porter a +12
Good to see them sharing the rock today
Porter has confidence and can pop is 3's.  Also nice cutting and pretty good boarding (though goes soft occasionally too).  He has offense.

Besides his highly suspect D, Porter also makes some godawful passes especially when on the move.  He's listed with 2 turns last game, but really had a 3rd since he threw a cross-court pass at a Clipper who bobbled it and then a scramble went on which ended in a Nuggy 24 sec violation.  He also had another pair of weak passes that barely connected.  You almost wonder if he was passing with his off hand for whatever reason on some of those.

It screwed the Knicks before that.  PJ Brown bodyslams Charlie Ward.  Ewing steps over the line. David Stern gives series to the HEAT the Knicks had in hand.

Funny, PJ & Chollie -- also two nice guys who surprisingly got into it.

The NBA tends to get too rule-bound and enforces its rules too literally.

If you have been watching, a GUMMING of Zubac at the rim is just one of MPJ's athletic exploits this series.

There really has been no indication - as he mostly guards Marcus Sr - that Porter is a major defensive minus.

Clearly yet ANOTHER Knicks draft miscue.

Utah went at Porter (and Jokic) a ton for profit.
Guys just blew past him.  Porter also poor as a rotating Big.
Porter has gotten burned at times in this series, but Morris needs to step up.


Thus far, Porter, both Bridges and Shai all look significantly better than Knox.
But Knix were not going to wait two years for a guy with injuries and hope his health held up.  Everyone knew Porter had talent -- as in Top 3 talent.  But his back was a huge red flag.  Shai was rising late to push his way into our range.  Both Bridges look solid.  I like Mikal for PHX, but haven't seen the other Bridges much for CHA.

Unfortunate when out of the 5 guys you should be considering that you choose the 5th best.  Knox still young.  Should play the way Porter does on O.

Nice playoff PER of 15.9 for Porter.
