    Stop with the must winning, this is like Rudy T saying every game was the most important one of the season.

    Rockets better get a streak going, either losing or winning.

    Rockets need to go at least 3-2 next five.

    We play Utah,Phoenix, Denver, Denver in that order later on in the season. That is such a timely matchup

    We're in a dead heat for the 8th seed.

    It's not about tanking, it's about keeping our pick or giving it to the Nets.

    I firmly stand that I'd rather hold onto the pick this year, when its value (at #14) is considerably higher than it will be next year. Use it now, don't give the Nets a double win (deep draft, highest possible pick location ~15).

    Give it to the Nets in a shallower draft, and please hand over a pick closer to #20.

    People will scream bloody murder for YEARS if the Nets strike gold with the pick we gave them for the T-Will Twitter experience. I don't want to add another one to the Rudy Gay/Jeremy Lin folder.

    And IIRC, you were leading the charge in dogging JVG for his win at all costs approach that cost us in the draft several years ago....

    I've been hearing the 2013 draft is better than this year's. For a supposedly deep draft a lot teams seem open to or have traded out of it.

    MKG was projected at 8th to 10th several months ago but immediately after a few high lotto players made it known they weren't entering it he shot up to 3rd or 4th.

    3 point shooting is the key here. We cant crash them in the boards so we need 3 point shooting. Also the bench is key in this game.

    Reggie Miller during the Heat/Mavs game: "You might be on the outside looking in like Houston is in the 9th spot" Um we are the 8th seed dumbass

    They are tanking. They just didn't know it would go this well.

    Key to this game:
    1. Secure rebounds.
    2. Shut down Rudy.
    3. Bench fire.

    Must win, or another nail is hammered. Rebounding and bench scoring, if both of this happens, we should be moving places in the standing.

    Memphis is a bad matchup with their frontcourt, we will get smashed on the boards. Conley-Dragic will be even, defending Mayo could be a problem. Memphis wins 101-96.

    This is the kind of game you lose if you're a #9 seed. Defend home court.
