The Rockets aren't bad. They have 3pt shooters, good P&R players and hustle guys -> exactly what can hurt us.
Hopefully we win

I don't think this will be easy, they're young and athletic, and Harden is always a thorn in our side.

Harden defends Kobe well. Asik defends Howard well, we need Pau to step up and contribute. He has to. I think it will be a tight game

It's likely Artest will be guarding Harden, let's see how he does when the defensive pressure is on him and not Westbrook/Durant.

lin and harden will destroy us bc they'll play big against the lakers.

But i hope Pau is aggressive today, very aggressive. We need to come out with a ton of energy and set the tone early. cant play catch up or trade buckets or think we can "turn on the switch" etc. not against harden and lin.

really hope they come out strong. pau too

Lin is a scrub. Let's see how Peace handles Harden as a main guy :man1:

Any kind of speed threat kills this team. Nash although still fast isn't like these young guys and what they have learned from watching the older greats still playing today.

Pau needs to be more than just aggressive in the 1st quarter.

I was really hoping to see D'Antoni out there tonight, but we are still more than capable of taking care of the Rockets. Let's get back to .500! :jam2:

Yao is going to light it up. Unless Kobe can get an improbable block on him.

Yao? :man3:


I think Kobe will have his hands filled with McGrady all night. No need for him to worry about Yao. :man12:

Coach Dave Miller always has the most useless and trite advice for the game.

Can we not contain Lin? He's carving up the D with the P n R.
