    As shit as this season has been, beating the Rockets at home is always satisfying. Doubly so when they now have Westbrook.

    What a performance.

    That's how this team has to play to be successful: Controlling tempo.

    Also, it shows this team is good enough to play with anyone. They just haven't played up to their ability for whatever reason.

    But good gameplan tonight and well-executed.

    Toronto was missing half their team...come on, you're better than that. Dallas was a good win for beating a 20 year old.

    I was just gonna say something about him. Really good defense without fouling much; kind of just tried to guard his guy. Got his hands on a lot of rebounds and holds on to them. Only turned the ball over once. If he had a coach who told him what he wants and held him accountable, I think he could be good.

    Really good game by our guys. Move the ball well majority of the game and there game plane on defense was to make someone beside Harden to beat them and it and it work. But I was really pleas how they share ball tonight.

    We had 7 more rebounds, 5 less turnovers and even 6 more free throws. Nate would have been proud!
