    Don't take them easily. Focus on defense, and use our mismatch advantages to overwhelm them. Go Houston Rockets!

    Our next games are New York, Utah, Brooklyn and Orlando before we play OKC. The Rockets need to put together a little win streak here.

    Exactly, start feeling good about themselves, love Ariza on defense but needs to be less aggressive with that 3 point shot, I know sooner or later it'll get there.

    Can't fault the man for taking wide open shots. He is here to be 3 and D...just needs to pick it back up on the 3 part. Hopefully this stretch of average to bad teams will give him a chance to pick his shooting back up.

    Will need him to hit his shots when we face OKC

    So we're playing the team with the worst record in the league, missing their best players...

    Trap game!

    BS. Pampered athletes like this don't do cross country drives. Heck it's probably against team policy. These guys don't exactly earn the leagues blue-collar money.

    First post here, happy to be a part of the ClutchFans community! I've been a die hard Rockets fan since the early 90's and have been reading these forums for years. I finally stepped up and made an account.

    Looking forward to the game tonight and to see how our chemistry continues to progress with the new pieces.

    Here's to getting that W!

    It's not a current pic dude. Or it's just for show biz. You know how hard and long driving from Cleveland to NYC would be? They wouldn't be able to play the game that night, especially Dwight if he's doing the driving.

    That's a little different. The Rockets were out of sync that night because Dwight was pulled from the lineup at the last minute. It was still a frustrating loss, but one that at least had a tiny bit of justification behind it.

    I think Phil Jackson wants us to win to help with the tanking. We can't disappoint him, it wouldn't be christian. I say put the foot on the throat and press down hard.

    Utah just TRASHED the Bulls on the road (maybe Chicago was too busy sucking their own ***** after beating us thanks to the refs).

    Nobody on that Rockets team is on this team though.
