📅 On this day in 1991, Isiah Thomas scored a game-high 22 points in a win over the Rockets. He became the Pistons’ all-time scoring leader, a record he still holds.
He’s also the franchise’s career leader in MIN, FGM, FGA, FTM, FTA, AST, and STL.

There are a lot of NBA teams right now playing one side of the ball MUCH better than the other:
Boston – #1 offense (by a mile), #20 defense
Denver – #3 offense, #23 defense
Sacramento – #4 offense, #22 defense
Utah – #5 offense, #25 defense
Clippers – #5 defense, #28 offense – 3:22 PM

So, I think we’ve discovered that Denver’s just not gonna be a “Blow this team out by 40” kinda team. They just don’t take the Rockets seriously, especially on November 30th.

Jabari Smith Jr.’s 17.8 usage rate is on par with names like Kelly Olynyk and Deni Avdija.
Houston is trying to get him more involved early on to help with his offensive rhythm.

New @ForbesSports – on one end, the Denver Nuggets are a free-flowing, attractive and potent unit. On the other, they aren’t anywhere near where they need to be to compete. And with the roster built as it is, it is hard to see how they can change that.

Among lineups that have played 100+ min, the #Rockets starting unit of KPJ, Jalen Green, Eric Gordon, Jabari Smith & Alperen Sengun is currently the worst defensive unit in the NBA, giving up 123.2 points per 100 possessions. In November, they gave up 130.9.
How do you fix this? – 12:21 PM

In Jabari Smith Jr., the Rockets have a 6’10 shooter with a 7’2 wingspan on their roster — a generational talent if things go to plan.
How can they unleash him?
On spacing, scheming and lots of shooting. Jabari Demystified, exclusive for @TheAthletic:
