    Excited for this game, apart from the "grudge match" subplot Atlanta and Houston are diametrically opposed philosophically, Atlanta is trying to be Spurs in East with emphasis on defense and half court play whereas Houston is fast paced style of basketball, it's like seeing the hardest shield vs the sharpest spear.

    With that said the Rockets should be able to win this easily, they have been playing good defense and Harden and the rooks have been balling out of their minds whereas Bazemore has been exposed as an Ariza-level player making 20M a year. Plus when all else fails there's always hack-a-dwight. Would be nice to see HnH shake hands or hug before the game though, eitherway can't wait to see this matchup go Rox!

    Howard is an absolute clown after all. Even Hakeem shakes his head at how dumb on the court this guy is. You know that's terrible Dwight.

    Howard will get his, but the Rockets will shove their cocks up the Hawks for an easy victory.

    It will be nice to get a quality win early over a team with a good record, for those who say we can only beat the lower bad teams. Of course beating any NBA team is worth celebrating to me.

    Rockets 122
    Hawks 111 and some broken wings

    One of the last times Rockets came up against Dwight Howard, this happened. He was ejected and Camby gave him the send off. This could be Nene tomorrow instead of Camby.

    That Camby gif was for Bynum getting ejected, not Dwight.

    LA- MDA grudge Match and lakers/rockets have a little history
    Dallas- home&home back to back games chippy ass Dallas team flopping everywhere for 8 qtrs
    Cavs- the defending champs
    Knicks- MDA grudge match
    Atlanta- harden/Howard grudge match
    D.C.- nene grudge? Lol and Ariza still another road game
    Spurs- home&home
    76ers Sam hinkie/morey grudge?!
    Okc- no bev to stir the pot

    Lots of emotions

    He is on the second best team in the east and if those are stat padding numbers I need capella to start doing that

    Howard puts up big number but misses key free throws :p. Game will be a challenge but think Rockets win.

    Dwight is Dwight. I'm not worried about him. I hope they feed him 20 times because that will mean Houston will win.

    The man can't understand that he is a pick n roll only guy with very low b-ball IQ. Even Amare is better than him because, not only did he comply with Nash, but he also developed a nice jump shot that even amazed Tim Duncan in the 2005 playoffs.

    If Rockets win then it'll be the first meaningful win this season.
