    Sit Tucker, Harden if he’s hurt, and just accept we will struggle a bit longer. At least we might be healthy in April. We’re a hard screen, unlucky fall away from losing Tucker for much longer.

    Reality: Tucker plays 38 minutes, Harden continues to struggle and we lose badly. Ow yeah, Hartenstein gets 5 minutes.

    Winning this game could be the biggest confidence builder i mean heck, they were 26-12, had a great record , then dropped 4. They need this game to shut the ney sayers up, this includes me.

    It would be nice to see them go on a 8 game win streak before they have to be in LA, ON 2/6. They gotta play harder, if they belive in themselves any bit. They do have what it takes , i really belive this to be a dominant team. Eric Gordon and Tucker can have big games. Capela Grab those rebounds.

    I think the Nuggets are just the medicine we need.

    118-110 Rockets!

    I want it to happen.
    It can happen.
    If we can drop a 15pt lead in the final 1/2quarter of a game though, it just continues to water down any confidence that I have in this team. Go Rockets!.... please?

    Barrage of Rocket shots flying from forty feet with predictable results. DA never changes, never adjusts, just doubles down.

    This game SHOULD be good timing for us given their injury situation with 2 starters and 1 rotation guy definitely out: Jamal Murray, Paul Millsap and Mason Plumlee, plus another starter (Gary Harris) very doubtful. We should rest PJ, but of course that won't happen...

    A bright spot from last the last game was D House. He finally looked engaged on both ends of the floor. I'm looking for back to back serviceable games from House. Harden is way overdue for a huge game. Hopefully Harden and the Rockets snap out of it and blow the Nuggets out.

    F it. I'm taking em -8
