Game 2 impressions – Are the Rockets dumb on defense?

-Whatever cold medicine Andrew Bogut took in game 2, I want some. -The Rockets do not have a high defensive IQ. It took them several trips for them to figure out the back picks that led to uncontested lay-ups in game one.

Draymond Green did that to start the second quarter and Harden hit an uncontested 15-footer. However, Harden is probably the best duel-threat offensive...

In addition, it’s dangerous to...
