NBACats in the News
– What is it about the Houston Rockets and utilizing undersized NBACats (Chuck Hayes and Patterson) as productive centers. Head Coach Kevin McHale had this to say:
“I thought Patrick did a really nice job in the pick-and-roll coverage with (Grizzlies center Marc) Gasol, and we played that small lineup quite a bit to close the game,”
Patrick was also quoted in the article and had this to say:
“Because I am at the five-man position I am the biggest guy on our team on the court, therefore my responsibility is greater,” Patterson said. “As far as stopping the ball from penetrating to the basket to doing a better job on screen-and-rolls, most of the time I’m guarding someone who’s bigger than me at the five, so keeping them off the glass and giving my teammates a chance to get rebounds (is paramount).”
