    Not expecting much out of this game tbh. We looked pretty gassed last game and the Thunder are pretty damn good.

    Just trying to not get embarrassed :/

    Don't think we'll get blown out like last time. Will be a lot more competitive I think. In the end it is probably another Loss.

    It would be good to see if the young Rockets can win with less turnovers and less free throw freebies. Defence? it's overrated. (They need time to cultivate that skill as a team.)

    Our starters are going to be gassed. This could get ugly.

    Gassed team against a fast, athletic well-rested team.

    So I'm keeping my expectations reasonable here.

    I'm not even thinking "win," I just want James Harden to have a good, confidence boosting performance against his old team so he can get that monkey off his back.

    Expect the worse, but hoping for the best.

    They looked tired after Chicago in Minny, so I can only imagine how they feel now on the 4th game in 5 days. Hopefully Asik has enough in the tank to outdo Ibaka on the boards and on defense. Hopefully a potential revenge game for Harden gives him an extra boost in adrenaline that he needs. Parsons and Lin I think will have off nights after last night. Greg Smith and Morris need to step up here. Morris was way off last night, he needs to step it up.

    We need to win this one for Harden. I just on't know how.

    We did win a game against the Knicks in the back end of a back-to-back, so all hope is not lost. At least we're playing at home tonight. Hopefully the masseurs are doing a good job.

    Go Rockets!!

    We win, somehow. My hope: DMo gets in there and goes unstoppable-- and for much of the game, not just garbage time.

    come out with a couple of screens from parsons and harden to get lin to the basket. after that, westbrook will be severely offended and make it personal to the point where he takes 50 shots! we win this one in a blowout.

    memo to rockets: martin loves the three, martin makes the three.

    (difficult game on a back to back.)
