    Hoping for harden to bounce back.

    This may be a rough one. They lose an hour going out East so it'll start at 6 for them which is already an early starting time.

    Get the win.

    End the drought of 30+pts on Harden.

    This is a repeat of the Jazz game following the Nuggets. Bottom line: If the Rockets play enough defense, they will definitely beat an offensively challenged opponent. They should have more than enough juice to get it done. IMO, the biggest obstacle will be focus and fundamentals, not fatigue.

    What concerns me the most is the TOs and sorry 4th quarter defense against OKC are symptoms the Rockets are losing their edge and need a loss or two to shake them back into place. They should have beaten OKC by 20+ points.

    The Greek Freak is amazing but he can't shoot. Fundamental half-court defense and getting back on defense to reduce open court situations is the way to limit his damage. Middleton and Bledsoe have talent but aren't scary. Both Delly and Brogdon are injured, which means 40 year-old Jet Terry is getting rotation minutes recently. I want to see him guard CP3 or EG.

    I'd watch out for Jabari Parker because playing with good energy now.

    The game is a tough call for me because I think the Rockets are gonna be plenty raggedy. But without Delly and Brogdan, the Bucks have little margin for error.

    Yeah but 6pm for them. Earlier start time than usual for back to back games. Hope they don't land too late.

    Harden played well enough to get the W in OKC, and keep gas in the tank for the b2b. I see a big night incoming.

    should be a schedule loss but this team has defied expectations.
    gonna be another physical grind it out fest. hope we're there mentally because the bucks really shouldn't be a problem for us if this were on normal rest.

    OKC- MIlwaukee is a weird B2B travel

    The Rockets need this win. They don't want to end a long win streak and then have to play the Raptors. The win streak prior this season was capped with a 5 game losing streak. I also believe that the 22 game win streak had several losses after it in a row. I may be wrong about that though.
