    Coming off a big win against the Spurs, the Hornets think their backcourt is better than our backcourt. In both positions!! Let's show them what's up! Go Rockets!

    Pre-game

    "Vazquez needs to take advantage of his size in this one. Lin not known to be a good defender or an elite athlete."

    "Beardsanity vs Kneesanity. I wonder if this can blossom into a true divisional rivalry since these two will be the top 2 guards in the league after Dwayne and Kobe are done."

    "with Gordon back im pretty opthimistic about our chances to win."

    "Let’s go for the Texas sized sweep!"

    "i expect harden and gordon to go at each other and have big games."

    "This is the most excited ive been for a hornets game since game 7 of the spurs series!!!!! I hope EJ takes it to harden. Ej is the all around better player here if u ask me. Ill be keeping lil side stats of actual 1on1 plays of these 2."

    "Gordon will destroy Harden tonight!
    And please, enough of euro-travels Mr. Harden, you don’t need that!"

    "On HoopsHype they mentioned how the Rockets may be looking for an upgrade at the 3, do you think the Hornets can get him? Who would we need to trade to get him?"


    1st half

    "forgot delfino is ray allen"
    "delfino, the flop artist"

    "We won't win this. Rockets are heating up."
    "we'll still win. we have eric gordon "

    "i guess asik is shaq now "

    "We are struggling so much offensively."
    "ugly half for both teams. we can't buy a bucket"

    "lol harden just took 5 steps"

    "got another break on that call"


    2nd half

    "Gotta credit our defense some. I’ve seen quite a bit of HOU this year (love Harden) and almost no one has been able to screw up their execution"

    "Houston's the league's fastest team and we’re making them play a disgustingly slow game, just the way we like it"
    "For instance last night, HOU were running layup drills on LAL. I just think they’re uncomfortable we’re crowding them in the paint"

    "Houston scores 109/100 possessions, In that first half, we held them to 80/100"
    "was our defense that great in the fourth or did they simply go cold? i missed the game unfortunately"
    "A little of both. Mostly good defense, but they missed quite a few empty 3s."
    "meh some good defense but the Rockets were building a brick city lol"

    "Rivers. F League. Yesterday."

    "Defense was great. The refs weren't calling ****, and the Rockets base their game off of getting to the line. Lin and Harden kept driving and trying to throw themselves into our bigs, who stood their ground, and they kept missing their desperation layups because of it. Make no mistake about it - we won this game. We took it from them with defense, and JSmith and Mason took the game over in the 4th quarter. Gordon came in to seal the deal (set up 3 scores with great passes, and he hit a shot of his own)."


    Tough loss. NOH really controlled the pace and I credit their defense on the perimeter. So many traps for Lin and Harden. Vasquez looked good; Lin looked either passive or aggressively turning it over. Gordon looked like he's not quite healthy yet? Harden looked tired. Anyways, on to the next one.

    Lol... He might not be known for it, doesn't mean he doesn't have elite speed and play great defense.

    i like this thread idea for each team we face.

    gives us a good idea what the other team's fan base is thinking about their team and our team.

    where's the link to their message board though?

    had it on the lakers one but not on this one.

    Lololol at the fool who said Gordon is an all-around better player that Harden. Sure, if all-around means being more injury-prone.

    I don't like these threads. Seems like gloating and in poor taste. God knows they could pull some foolish quotes from some rockets fans from this site.

    Small sample size is not a good representation of their fans... Also who cares.

    It's not gloating, just in good fun and for perspective. I'm sure we have some foolish quotes but a lot their quotes are actually quite witty and definitely belies their knowledge in basketball. Either way, NOH fans are quite realistic and melo.

    "OMG WE'RE SO GOOD WE BEAT THE TEXAS TRIANGLE!!!11"

    "Harden fluke trolol"

    "Lin scrub"

    "Mason MVP"

    "Smith eating Rockets frontcourt alive"
