    Gotta make DMC pay for not running back on defense. Need transition offense needs to be effective.
    Gonna need a mans game from Capela tonight. No passive $hit.

    this game should be fun

    please don’t let their role players go off like last time

    NO’s shooting display in the 1st half of that last game was some of the best I’d ever seen...they couldn’t miss

    Ryno goes off scoring 35 tonight.
    Hell why not? Our ex-players do it to us every other game.

    Need to see the D improvement in this game. Last two games the team has kept the opposing team from reaching 100pts. I would like to see another one and if continued the team is heading the right direction as far as being able to seriously compete once the playoffs start.

    don't think you can get rid of me that easily. Just like once a Knicks fan, always a Knicks fan . . . same for once a Rockets fan, always a Rockets fan. I'm gonna be like the ghost of Tom Joad. "Whenever you see a media conspiracy Ma, I'll be there."

    I feel pretty good about tonight, but it is a good test.

    I don't think the Pels will hit 14 1st-half threes again, but then again Davis is playing so that's extra O & D than we saw last time. We have HOF guards and they have All-star frontcourt beasts. I hope we don't struggle against their bigs like Miami. Rockets can win, should win, but it's a tough one for sure.

    They aren't an easy team to beat, even if their record says they're mediocre. I just want to see the defense stay strong throughout the game. Can we deny easy baskets? Miami was getting to the hoop too easily. New Orleans' size will be a big test.

    Man last time the Pels played the Rockets tough without AD. They could not miss a 3. Holiday and Moore had like 35 points apiece it was crazy. They better not take this team lightly with AD back in the lineup.

    I hope we don't match up against these MFers in the playoffs, I could easily see the Pelicans winning. Capela can't hang with elite bigs.

    If the pelicans could put a great shooter/slasher next to those bigs they’d be a really good team.
