    Hopefully the Rockets will take care of business

    Clutch, how many more Knick losses will it take for GM's to want our pick.
    Do you think we should cash it in at the deadline?

    " I don't know what I'm supposed to do with him.",- the fuhrer on the great hasheem-

    Now, a season later, maury and lex will show that hasheem, truly, is worthy of minutes, and will tear up the timber puppies with 17 points and 20 rebounds.

    i like rubio but i hope kyle and dragon destroy him for the boy that he is.

    keys to winning:

    -we know that adelman loves to run and get easy buckets. limit their fast breaks.

    -make rubio into a scorer. they don't have too many other players that can create for themselves.

    -guard the love three ball. patterson and scola are terrible at guarding shooting 4s. parsons might be the best option to keeping love in check.

    Marcus Morris can guard perimeter 4's, but he struggles to box out and rebound.

    This will be interesting, so many subplots, Morey consistently tried to pry Rubio away, and Minny wouldn't budge.

    Adelman as their coach, McHale as ours......

    Rubio vs Lowry
    Love vs Scola
    Darko vs Dally

    So much to see, being an away game is a bit scary, but the Wolves have be susceptible to losing at home.

    To me, this is a coin flip game, but if the Rox are determined to make the playoffs, it is a game they need to win.

    minnysoda, eh?

    The Beach Boys nephew will get his 15 and 15. lowry will eat rubio's lunch. Kmart will give adelman nightmares.

    and rick the ruler will never forget the day when the Rockets rolled over the Wolves in the Twin Cities

    This will be a tough game since most of the Wolves home games they have been close against last years playoff teams. The Rockets should be able to win since they are good roll.

    Key for the win is to limit the Wolves 3 key players Rubio, Darko, Love.

    Rubio is a bad matchup for Lowry. He plays just as hard and with as much BBIQ as Lowry, yet he's bigger and longer, and Lowry isn't quick enough to exploit Rubio's lack of footspeed.

    Scola will have trouble guarding Love. The Passion Assassin will have to make up for it by scoring a lot on the other end.

    Should be an exciting affair, win or lose. Not sure who is gonna pull this out, as we're on the road and Adelman knows our players very well. On the other hand, Minny is a young, inexperienced team overall.

    Hopefully, the Spurs game helped prepare the Rockets against Rubio. I don't know whether it's execution or defensive philosophy, but something needs to improve when it comes to high-energy point guards.
