    Willie Caulie Stein gets a career high on our "PFs" but Rockets still blow them out.

    Capela should be able to hold down the fort. Hopefully he gets more minutes.
    Heard this morning Dwight might be available for both games.

    Rockets lose this one. Bellinelli goes HAM on us.

    HOU 101
    SAC 105

    No Cousins means we save Howard for tomorrow?

    This is pathetic that we have to think like this now. I wonder if Howard will ever play more than 50 games again.

    Well, Howard did hint that he may start playing in back-to-back games later in the season.. Expecting Howard to play 50-60 games this season.

    Honestly, as long as we can secure top 4 seed (which may be tough...) and Howard is fully healthy to play every game in the playoffs, I am fine with Howard taking games off here and there.

    No such thing as an easy win with this Rockets team right now. That being said, this is a very winnable game even without T-Jones who seems to have worst cut eye in professional sports history. No Cousins negates the absence of Dwight(I assume they'll sit him tonight and save him for the Clippers tomorrow) and the Kings ain't exactly playing well regardless.

    Please please please show up tonight, Rockets. It would be nice to come home from this 2-game roadie no worse than 3-4. After that, the schedule is a joke the rest of the month and they can start to get their sh-t together.

    Why do I get the feeling that the Rockets will sleepwalk into this game expecting an easy win since the star player is out, like Game 1 vs. the Clippers? Maybe it's because these Rockets lack mental toughness. Hoping for a win, but not expecting it to be easy like it should.

    I think after 3 consecutive 20 point losses all the thoughts of sleep walking have gone out of their heads. We win this one.

    Trap game. They have Gay playing at PF and he'll destroy us.

    Cousins is out. If Dwight plays then this is an easy win and we cover 6.5.

    Rox should not go into this game underestimating the Kings, seeing as the Rox overestimated themselves wit their lackluster play to start the season.
