    Rockets should be underdogs against any teams if they lose to Fakers.

    If Rockets still play no defense, I guess I will start to hate basketball.

    It begins. Next one out will probably be Ryan Anderson, then a few games later Eric Gordon. Beverley comes back, then gets hurt again. Before you know it, the Rockets are signing Josh Smith and begging Prigioni to come back.

    If we can make more than one 3 pointer in the second half, we win.

    As long as Dantoni is coaching this team, don't expect any defense. His defense is just really good offense, which means that if they struggle to shoot, they will not only suck at regular defense but also Dantoni's defense.

    Curry drops 30
    Bogut goes for 20 & 10 while setting illegal screens
    Barnes struggles will be a thing of the past
    Warri... err Mavs win.
    Don't forget about the miniature Jose Juan Barea
    and Captain Jackass will get the last laugh.
    :(

    The thought of JJ Barea (likely) ripping through our defense is not a pretty one

    The Rockets will probably lose tonight so I'm just gonna ask it. Is Beverley the difference in us winning against the Mavs and the Lakers? Rather than having Ennis and Brewer scrubbing it up out there, does Beverley put us over these two teams?

    A healthy D-Mo would of course, but he's not even signed and we don't know if it's because of his health concerns. Still, a healthy D-Mo does not solve our rebounding issue. He does help some with the defense.

    It would be so great if we had a healthy D-Mo and Beverley to keep guys like Ennis and Brewer glued to the bench, but these two players are injury prone. They seem to play controlled and we don't ever see them get hurt out there while Brewer is flying everywhere.
