    Would have felt a lot better about our chances if we didn't lay 3 straight eggs against the Hornets, Celtics, and 76ers....but who knows?


    112-103 Rockets....BOOM

    Lose. They are too deep and their bench could be starters on a lot of NBA teams right now. I'm hoping for a 2OT game for clips and grizz the night before ha.

    When a player is cold and fails to open up the paint, coaches could have him set a solid screen for a teammate being closely followed. I guess this will either create an open look for the teammate or open up the paint, better than standing still outside the perimeter.

    Well, I don't expect much from this game. It will be a tough game. JLin might not be able to guard CP3.

    same here. im a little scared to watch the game. it seems the top ranked teams we get our ass handed to us by. the scary thing is if we dont keep our wins up, when playoff time comes we'll be possibly played OKC, SA or the clippers in the first round.

    We win an emotional game against a team on a back to back as home underdogs.

    If Orlando can do it in LA, then we sure as hell can do it in Houston.

    I am dreading this game. I really hope the team can pull of a win.

    going to be hell of a tough game. The clips are playing arguably the best basketball in the league right now. They can run with the best of them and their half court offense is great purely because of how good CP3 is.

    The way I see it, if Lin plays like absolute crap like against the 76ers and apply no pressure for CP3 to play any defense, then we are going to be in big trouble. I feel that if lin can tire CP3 out on the defensive end, then their offense won't nearly be as effective.

    Ouch!

    Also CP3 has most steals and Harden has most turnovers.

    Lol everytime people say certain PG will destroy Lin, Lin plays great against them and quite often semi shuts them down until someone else guards them.

    We saw this with Lowry, Rondo, Westbrook, Felton, who else... can't remember...
