    Howard will be back this game, if he can stay out of foul trouble we will have a chance.

    Howard, Capela, Ariza and Hayes will be able to hold down the front court I feel. Its Reddick, Crawford and Paul I'm worried about.

    Harden was D'd up in last year's games against the clippers and Reddick always lit him up as well.

    Will be interesting, I think we have a chance but we can't play games, blowing leads and **** because they will just mow us down.

    I thought CP3 had a groin injury and won't play.

    Remember game 6 before the comeback? It's going to be like that, but worse. If we need Harden to be a monster against the Kings without Cousins and have a bench brigade that is producing worse than that horrible Clippers bench, we are screwed.

    Clippers are incapable of beating us. Mental midgets they are.

    It would be if the come back happens when Josh jacks up 10 missed 3's in consecutive possessions.

    No DMo, no Bev, no TJones. Chuck has a bad foot. Second half of a back to back. Clippers want revenge from last year. Everything points to an easy win by the Clippers. But, sometimes the Rockets win at the most unexpected time.

    Lawson needs to test CP's groin (no homo). Make him work. Make him regret not staying on the IR.

    Griffin, Jordan and Smith are going to manhandle Capela all the way up until he swats that dunk attempt with ease. They'll push him hard, go airborn all epic like & then *swat*.

    Even with the PF disparity right now with injuries, I think we have way too many weapons for them to be able to handle. Thornton is gonna be a problem. Ariza, Brew, Ty, Harden all gonna be problems.

    Hopefully Capela plays tonight. He aggravated his Shoulder again last night near the end of the game.
