    Gotta start strong. Teams seem to get discouraged when we start fast.

    Harden vs DeRozen is always a good matchup.

    Looking forward to another win.

    They’re supposedly really good friends.

    If I remember correctly they always win in TOR & we always win here so this is looking like a Dub.

    Ryno needs to draw Ibaka away from the paint. I love me some Valanciunas, but he's a huge liability on the PnR. Run it with Harden/Clint all day for layups and lobs. Just do what we usually do and we'll be good shape.

    The two work out together in the off-season, both returning to their respective homes in Los Angeles and making one another better.

    “Yeah, in summers we work out together and we steal each others things,” DeRozan said following the morning shoot around before Wednesday night’s game. “That is what is all about. Learning from players you respect in the league, and James is one of the guys I grew up with since we were 13. We’ve watched each other’s games evolve.”

    “That’s my bro,” Harden told the Houston Chronicle. “He’s riding a wave right now. He’s being aggressive, he’s scoring in all types of ways. He’s one of the best players in the league.”

    here's an interesting tidbit

    We are on a roll. Harden is on a mission.

    We gonna stomp dat azz in the 1st quarter like always (before we let them catch up and then win by 20)

    Rockets - 121
    Raptors - 99

    Hope I can make the game thread and these women leave me alone finally! :D

    Always loved Demars game as a 2nd option. He’s money from the mid range, probably the best in the league.

    Imagine if that rumor was true and that trade went down.. Harden, DeRozan, and Lowry. In the Least.

    While the rockets stuck with KM, Parsons, Lin, & Lamb

    Some posters here probably deserve that reality.

    LOL I'm sure they'll be perfectly fine having a mediocre and irrelevant team as long as they all get back fast on defense

    Rockets 102 - Raptors 99

    Somehow I see a close game with a 3pt shooting debacle for all, but one starter and maybe a bench player. DeRozan tries to win it but fails, Capela seals it with FTs!

    Among players who took 200 or more shots from 12-22' last year, he ranked 41st in FG%.

    Chris Paul was 1st.

    Just shoot many three pointers, the great chance we will win
