Well ... the Jazz just beat the Pels.

Eric Gordon will be out for the Rockets but as long as they have Harden and Westbrook the Rockets are dangerous.
Wonder what RC's defensive plan is ... or will this be a shoot-out?
Kind of a weird first game for the Mavs since the Rockets are all-in with small-ball and KP is a key piece for the Mavs. Wonder if KP will be able to hang in the game.

Beginning of the game at 3:00am here in Slovenia and Germany. And at 4:00am in Latvia.

:o

Tough one, but we will be there! :D

The quiet hum of the earth's dreaming is my new song

When I awake, the world will be born anew

Must win game if we wanna move up to the 4 seed. Mavs are gonna get lucky that Houston will be without Gordon, but KP needs to take over this game since he’s almost a foot taller than the guy guarding him.

Prediction: Mavs 121 Rockets 114

I can already see him twist his body from midrange attempting a fade away

Couldn't he just camp under the basket and dunk it? Tucker is 6 ft 5 goodness

Ideally, yes.

Boban should be unstoppable in this too for the same reason, but at the same time he might not even be playable in this one due to the tempo that Houston plays with

It's really a shame that Utah didn't lose yesterday, after half time it had such a good probability of happening. It could be the difference between the 6th and 7th seed.

The most important game of the RS is tonight though. Let's hope the team is ready to play at a high level.

At some point the Mavs will need to dictate tempo, might as well start tonight.

Kristaps really not comfortable posting up anyone. Only fadeaways.

Here's the game so far : foul, foul, foul, foul, foul, foul, foul, etc.

14 fouls in around 7 minutes.
