    Harden looked gassed last game, I'm not sure but we really need Rivers, House and someone off the bench to step up.

    Can’t afford harden to go for 3-17 and 0-8 in the first half like he did last night. To his credit he had a stellar second half going for 10-17 from the field and 5-9 from the 3pt line with a 26 point second half but the damage was done in the second quarter when he struggled most. Against the Nuggets the margin for error is razor thin.

    He needs to set the tone early.Nuggets are a good three point shooting team so guys like Rivers, Houes jr and Ennis need to defend the 3 line well. This should be a great game.

    We usually have their numbers. They are really good offensive rebounding team. If we limit their second chance points, we have good chance.

    Rivers did step up. He was hot but wasn’t getting the ball enough down the stretch. Should have gotten a lot more shots. Harden got caught up in his streak and not recognizing he’s off and that he needed to feed the hot hand.

    Rockets started the season 0-4 at home... they're now 13-5 there. They've won nine straight at Toyota Center.

    These next two are going to be a real challenge.

    Rocketeer sighting!

    Capela, Capela, Capela this is your time to shine. This is one of your biggest matchups of the season. Please continue to do you. Be yourself and dominate.

    I want to see Harden and Rivers get multiple isos on Jokic. The Nuggets are good, but they seriously seem like the biggest fools gold in the league at the moment. Lakers, Warriors, and Thunder worry me more. At this point I'd rather face the Nuggets instead of the Spurs, too.

    Hope I'm right, and this doesn't back fire. Nuggets just don't seem like a good match up for the Rockets.
