    The best East backcourt vs the best West backcourt, should be a fun and close game, wish Rockets win!

    We have to attack them and not let them attack us. We know Monta and Jennings will play with a grudge and will come out blazing for Lin and Harden. We have to attack but play within our team system. If we do that we'll be fine. If not they are they type of team that can run us ragged.

    Id like to see Asik use his size down low against Sanders/

    Bucks playing well at home lately. The first of 6 back to back games in January. Lin's D against Jennings will be key. Since TD's D have chitted in the bed lately, i think McHale really need to let Lin push those minutes tonight.

    i somehow felt the last two games were trap games and the team was going to lose ..yet they won

    I have the same feeling this time around but this is a road game and the rockets haven't been that good on the road this year

    Delfino is the game changer.

    I'm a little concerned about Monta Ellis. I hear Monta Ellis have it all.

    The Bucks are a good team and just recently blew out Miami. This is definitely loseable especially on the road.

    I know we like to get to the rim, but Larry Sanders has been a disruptive force there this season: 3 blocks and 8.4 rebounds in just 25mpg. However, he also gets commits 3.8 fouls and Harden is one of the best at getting to the FT line. The refs will play a big part in this game.

    The Rockets are better in every position, with a better bench also. This is a good win.

    I'd love for Chandler Parsons, at least, to recognize that Sanders is a shotblocker, so we don't see a repeat performance of the Atlanta game with Josh Smith guarding the rim.

    Run and gun........

    100 points between Harden, Lin, Ellis and Jennings......

    The Bucks have a serious speed advantage in the backcourt.... but the Rockets have a serious IQ advantage....

    I can see fatigue being an issue, so we will need a little quality play from Douglas and Delfino....... don't know that Harden can get 40 minutes today.

    If Harden has gotten good sleep I could see him get 35-40 pts.... Lin needs to score....

    If two inefficient chuckers make them the best backcourts in the east, then that's pretty sad.
