Player Notes

  • Corey Brewer invisible in Game 2 loss
    Corey Brewer played just 19 minutes and hit 1-of-5 shots for three points, zero rebounds and one assist in Thursday's Game 2 loss.

    Advice: Josh Smith and Brewer were awful tonight, which is probably why the Rockets are down 2-0 in the series, instead of it being tied 1-1. After scoring in double figures in the final three games against the Clippers in the last series, Brewer has scored a total of 12 points in two games against the Warriors, hitting just 4-of-12 shots.

  • Terrence Jones scores 12 in Game 2 loss
    Terrence Jones came off the bench and hit 6-of-12 shots for 12 points, two rebounds, a steal and a three blocks in Thursday's Game 2 loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Josh Smith was awful tonight and it would have made sense for Kevin McHale to pull the plug on him and roll with Jones in Game 2, but that didn't really happen. If Jones wants more minutes, he's going to have to do a better job of crashing the boards than he did tonight, but if Smith struggles early in Saturday's Game 3, don't be surprised if McHale turns to Jones earlier in that must-win game.

  • Josh Smith struggles in Game 2 loss
    Josh Smith hit just 5-of-17 shots and missed all three of his 3-point attempts for 10 points, one rebound, two assists, one steal and no blocks in 21 minutes of Thursday's Game 2 loss.

    Advice: The Rockets fell into an early 17-point hole and the fact that Smith was outshooting teammate James Harden had a lot to do with it. Harden eventually took over and helped the Rockets to a 23-6 run to end the first half, but Smith was out there chucking again in the second half. He had 17 points, seven rebounds, five assists, three blocks and two 3-pointers in Game 1, but didn't even look engaged in Game 2. It will be interesting to see what Kevin McHale does with him in Game 3, but chances are he'll be back out there and shooting at will, as that's what he does. Rotoworld.com

  • James Harden scores 38, just misses trip-dub
    James Harden went off by hitting 13-of-21 shots, three 3-pointers and 9-of-10 free throws for 38 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, three steals, a block and just two turnovers in Thursday's tough Game 2 loss at Golden State.

    Advice: Harden got off to a slow start and saw his team fall into a 17-point hole in the second quarter, but heated up and led the Rockets on a furious 23-6 run to close out the first half and tying the score. Harden had the ball in his hands with seven seconds on the clock and trailing by one point, but couldn't get through a double team of Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, and never even got a shot off. Look for him to continue to go nuts in this series, especially at home for Games 3 and 4. Rotoworld.com

  • Andre Iguodala plays 31 minutes off bench
    Andre Iguodala played 31 minutes off the bench and hit both of his shots for six points, two rebounds, six assists and two steals in Thursday's 99-98 win over the Rockets.

    Advice: Since blowing up for 16 points last Wednesday against Memphis, Iguodala has scored 9, 4 and 6 points in his last three games, making him a pretty shaky fantasy option. Rotoworld.com
