    Looking forward to being in the Toyota Center tonight!

    Hopefully, the team will continue to build upon what they did against the Thunder. It was nice seeing Harden's shot to start falling down again.

    Has a date been thrown out on when DMO might be ready to play this season?

    You know. With this Dwight BS. Do you play him against Sacramento or Clippers this coming weekend? Statistically wouldn't we have a higher percent chance to win Sac with D12 and then hope for the best in LA? or do we hold D12. HOPE we can win in SAC and then play LA? This sitting one game of back to backs is complicated. Do you make your decision based on as close to a sure win as possible and take your sure loss? Or do you roll the dice and make both games a toss up?

    What entrance are you at and you think I'll be good if I get there in about 15 mins?

    Gonna be rough either way.
    Sacto with no Dwight = Boogie beast mode
    LAX has been a bad matchup for us over the years with or without Dwight.

    Oladipo is going to come at Harden, that's all I know. Hopefully our guys are ready.

    So is there any truth to the rumour Howard is out?

    This is causing havoc in my fantasy team.

    Picked up Dwight.

    Picked up Capela in the last round as insurance for Dwight.

    Need to know which one to play!

    Around after Christmas, according to unknown insider ON THIS FORUM. So, unreliable. But that's all there is out there.

    Look how dreadful is the Rockets defence esp defending the Moreyball.

    Howard is playing tonight. No reason for him to miss the game.

    lol Dmorey himself just responded to that tweet. He's right that it's early - we can make better evaluation after 7 games and even better at the half of the season. But so far things look really bad. Uncontested threes left and right.

    Harden for 40 points. 5 of 8 from three.

    Rockets have really missed Dmo big time. Usually when there are confusions on the perimeter in terms of ball movement/off-ball movement, him or Harden last season were the guys to bail you out. And the spacing, off-ball movement and passing he provides is just invaluable.

    If this were the Eastern conference, you can manage missing key pieces. But in the West, you need every key player.

    Once Dmo gets back and gets going, our offense will look soo much better. Turnovers and bad shots will be toned down which in turn will lead to better defense.
