Houston puts-up a lot of points and we don't. I hope I get to see Donatas and Morris tonight, two players I would have taken over Vesely.
Guys on a message board could do a better job managing the Wizards than Ernie Grunfeld.

The latest line has Houston giving 9 points.

Honestly, I think the Wizards should be much closer than 9 points. I feel like tonight the Wizards will win, perhaps by more than a little bit.

The Rockets are mirror opposites of the Wizards. They are all offense but have one of the poorest defensive squads. They push the ball but they don't defend very well. Washington, for all the bitching and moaning, has won 3 of their last 6 games. In fact, the last four losses have come to quality opponents: SA, NY, ATL, and GS. The Knicks and Spurs are in first place in their respective divisions. The Hawks trail Miami by one game. The Warriors trail the Clippers by one game.

The way this game with the Rockets will probably go, I foresee Crawford and Beal LOVING the pace. Webster could finally erupt if Cartier Martin does not go off. Ignore the 77 against the Hornets, because that was the first game with no PG. This game won't be deliberate. It will be a track meet. I think Seraphin and Nene will get Asik in foul trouble and they will have a big scoring advantage inside.

I don't think McHale is a very good coach. The Rockets have lost 3 straight since he's been back, although they did score a lot against the Spurs.

I think the Wizards will win, 107-102. Webster or Martin are going to have big games, if not Beal and Crawford, too. This is a really good opponent for the Wizards to step up against.

The good news is for all the points the Rox put up they give up even more.
http://www.nba.com/rockets/stats/2012

This should be fun game. Harden might score 40+, but the Wizards are going to get theirs IMO.

As I think of what I just typed, Beal has a good opportunity to at least show his defense and total game off tonight. He could be the one to make a statement. Wouldn't that be nice?

I've edited a bunch on this post, because I'm strangely optimistic. They give up 105 a game and I think the Wizards WILL win.

I heard this on the radio, but the Wizards have not won back-to-back road games on consecutive days since 2006. I don't know how often that situation has come up, but my god that sounds horrible.

They're going to break that streak, IMHO.

Wittman is a good coach and tonight he has an opportunity for some redemption.

Great game thread, I actually have a good feeling about this game. This is very winnable if we don't start out too slow.

The timing couldn't be better. I'm glad Mike Lee published his article yesterday. Go and get 'em Harden. 50+ please!

Someone else posted that Harden is out tonight, so anything goes.

Crawford gives this team some attitude and Beal says having him out there helps his game.

Now if Randy would just make the adjustment of starting Kevin or Nene. The Singleton/Okafor front court is just not a good one. .407 and .432 isn't going to get it done. Kevin and Nene are at .488 and .466 and both are much better post scorers. Randy makes no sense. Either start Nene and pull him early or start Kevin.

Why so many poster have hotties as avatars. If anything screams can't get any, that would be it.
