    How long is Gordon out? Karl Anthony Towns will eat tonight!

    Sounds like it's day-to-day. Hopefully he's back for Memphis on Friday.

    In Most cases I would agree with you but our schedule has been brutal. This is our 5th game in 7 nights, Next week, we have a B2B against the Bucks and Heat then another B2B with Dubs and Memphis. That is nuts.

    I would rest the starters tonight, see if the bench can make it a game.

    Will be a challenge for sure. Need 2 of ariza Ryno and Bev to shoot over 50% from the 3 tonight for a chance I think. 2 of those go 1 for or 2 for it will Ben tough. Maybe Wiltjer could get 8-10 and knock down 2 or 3?

    I'm not really sweating the Heat/Bucks B2B. Miami is horrible.

    a bit worried about containing KAT...

    also, really hoping james' shot still can fall this game...really can't afford a harden cold game while EGo is out

    Zach Lavine got a hip contusion the other night but is warming up today. Another injured player miraculously recovered to play against the Rockets.

    If we stay close during the whole game it won't be hard to steal the win even if we are trailing for most of it. Because they don't know how to close games.
    I think Wiggins will show up tonight but KAT won't.

    Bucks play up or down to their competition, they will be hyped for the Rockets, Plus long teams give us the most trouble.

    Harden @ Miami, well see

    For real though. This is a team I could see us half-stepping and then getting in trouble. Play hard for 48 minutes, especially the games you're "supposed to win."

    it'll be tough, this is one of those schedule loss, so if we can win without EGO, that would be huge. Ryo is gonna step up and we need someone from the bench to contribute so we can at least maintain the differential when Harden is resting. I'm iffy on a win tonight but I hope so! This year, the Rockets have proven us wrong constantly, so I won't be surprise if we win.

    i think we lose tonight with Gordon being out again. not a shame to lose to a talented young t-wolves squad and 82 game season is a grind. you are going to lose a few games that you shouldnt. but go rockets!

    You guys know you are talking about a Wolves team that has a 7-13 record at home and has only one win in the last 5 games (scoring no more than 105 points in any of them) and that win was against the Mavs.

    Rockets take this.

    2 streaks at stake... 10th consecutive winning streak and 10th 2nd game of a back 2 back winning streak.

    We're also talking about the team that had the Rockets down 13 points with under 3 minutes to go last month. And that was with Gordon and Capela(partly) in the lineup.

    The Nets are 1-17 on the road and almost beat us in Houston. The Wolves had our number last game and gave it up. We have no Gordon. It'll be a tougher game than you think.
