Discipline. He had an emotional meltdown and was sent to the locker room via team security by Doc.

I don't think he is being used right -

Doc is making him play too close to the hoop when he is a midrange guy.

Ok apparently, doc said baby wasn't emotionally in the game and trying to hijack the game emotionally.

Doc really showed great moxie to discipline Big Baby for being too emotionally off kilter when he was on the bench. I hope BB learns from this and moves forward in a positive way.

Lin is a good player in a bad it situation believe he will bounce back on his next team.

Davis should be locked in for the next game.

He played like a scrub. Seems like the scapegoat for Rockets fans every time they lose a game lol.

He Can't play Defense and he's going to cost 14 million next year, how bad is his situation. I like Lin but he's just a good scorer, not great but good.

His defense is so-so. What I notice is that he gets burned a lot because he takes Harden's defensive assignment or has to help him. Its like Harden doesn't care about D at all. So lazy.

Thats why he isn't a superstar. Horrific defender.

This pretty much he was overpaid but on a new deal and on a team like the Magic he could flourish.

Glaring flaws??? LOL...you are the one who needs perspective. DJ has had an all star type year. Leads the league in two categories, 3rd in another, never misses a game and is one of the best centers in the league with his best still to come. Great team player and is not only in serious discussion for Defensive player of the year but also MIP. Anybody who is still doubting is probably doing so because they probably were the ones screaming to trade him for KG. Thank goodness we didn't make that trade because it would've been one of the worst trades in franchise history.

"Nobody puts Baby in the corner" - except Doc... f*cking gangsta move!

Message to Houston - "Well will beat you anytime, anyhow, anywhere".

Lin. Magic have a long term hole at PG.

Hollins should get back into the rotation if matched up against good length teams.

Good defense tonight from Dudley, Bullock and Green.

Bullock was garbage tonight. Maybe a spell in a blowout might raise his game, but the kid isn't ready for big-boy ball.

Agree with you on Duds and Willie, though.

Agree, Davis doesn't have big contribution, he should concentrate on defense instead, Hollins i think was intimidated and played well in a limited minutes.

What a game, and what an amazing job by Chris Paul going ballistic MVP mode after Blake Griffin went down in the first quarter. Just an absolutely masterful performance by CP3- hit 3's, setup teammates for dunks/layups, played great D, rebounded- you name it, he did it.

The guys really had a very poor 14 minutes or so of the game, but the defense showed up big time after that. The small ball strategy paid off. Guys were rotating, not allowing any open 3's by Houston, rotating to challenge Rocket drives to the hoop. Truly a great team effort defensively. Big props to Barnes, Collison, Green, and DJ especially for that. On offense, Jamal carried the load in the third quarter when CP had to go out, and helped keep Houston at bay.

Not sure why Glen Davis was so upset- I guess he exploded after Doc Rivers took him out in lieu of Ryan Hollins early in the second quarter. Ryan had some solid minutes, so if Davis is going to act like all entitled, he better step up and play better. Shut up and play hard.

Hopefully Blake's back spasms are not too serious- knock on wood that it's just a one or two game thing.

You are a very wise man to agree with me.

Woa, 3 man? It was a 4v1 fastbreak and he put on his bear face, that might never happen again for him

Davis is getting a good amount of mid-range jumpers, and he's shooting 75% at the basket as a Clipper so far, obviously higher than what he usually does as for his career he shoots 61%. His shot distribution is almost exactly the same as his career, so in not sure about the accuracy of the statement that he is being used incorrectly.

Bullock played well in the birthday game and everyone sucked in the Denver game both big minutes games. Even then Bullock had some nice defensive hustle plays in that Denver game. Against Houston he missed his two shots but he was out there in the second when we got stops and Paul carried the offense.
