    Hopefully Lin's, Parson's, and Harden's shot are falling! :)

    We will be beaten pretty badly cos' SAS are way more versatile for this bunch of young guys and rookies to handle.

    The Rockets are going to shock the NBA. The youngest team in the NBA beats the Lakers then beat the Spurs.

    I'm a big fan who most of the time try to be positive but have a bad feeling about this one...

    My prediction:

    Lin and Parson can't guard Duncan and Parker.
    No one else on the Rockets will play D.
    Spurs will score 130 points on us.

    I fear it will be a blowout. But it's the NBA so who knows. I would be happy if we were able to keep it close.

    It appears Durant plays on whatever team that the Rockets play against if I am correct. ;)

    Starters can't come out with the same pathetic effort as last game, the bench won't be able to carry them over the Spurs like they did with the Lakers. I hope Coach Sampson ripped them a new one and they regain their focus.

    It's gonna be tough but stranger things have happened. I mean, the Wizards just beat the Heat ... :p

    They gotta bring it.

    I hope they play like how they played the defending champions.

    These guys are still a championship team contender.

    Lin will be okay on Parker. However, don't count on Lin stopping Parker... nobody out there can actually STOP Parker except Parker.

    I'm sure Parson will put out a valiant effort... but he's Kevin freaking Durant. He'll just shoot over anyone we put on him.

    Our best hope is that we can out-score them. Our defense isn't that great as it is. However, if we can push the pace and sink enough buckets we got a shot.

    That said, we're pretty significant underdogs...

    James will improve his shooting from 3/19 to 4/19, and win the game.

    I feel like the only way we win is if Parsons and Harden each go for 30+ points like they did against the Knicks. I think the Knicks and Spurs are pretty equal right now.
