At this point in the season it's tough to tell how much of this was Detroit being bad and how much of it was Houston being good. Harding looked awesome last night, and he and Lin are going to have a pretty tough backcourt. Delfino hitting those threes seemed to really kill the wind in Detroit's sails. The team obviously lacks a go-to scorer, but watching them it felt like watching a bunch of rookies that haven't played together that much (which is what they are). Their decisions were slow, passes weren't crisp, and defensive assignments looked really tentative. They came close to winning for much of the game because the team does have talent, but then Lin and Harden came back in and they couldn't defend against them. I understand what Frank was doing by going small-ball - Lin, Harden, and Delfino were taking over the game - but in doing so they weren't able to rebound and the Rockets were able to take advantage inside defensively. I also noticed that the Pistons (Monroe especially) lack great hands. Monroe might be a solid passer, but he's not great in traffic. Maybe it was that Houston was "reachy," but the Pistons weren't able to push it inside and because of the small ball, they weren't able to attack the glass. So yeah... I like Frank, but I'm hoping that he learns from this game.
