Gotta win this one. A victory would give us the tiebreaker which could come in handy next month.

I want to see Gilbert in action this game instead of warming the bench for everyone. And I don't want to see no 2 minute game time for him either he will be just as great as Conley is.

We need to win 3 out of our next 4 at minimum ....a pretty nasty set of teams after including okc on the 4th game

Their watered-down lineup doesn't look like a playoff team, but they are going to fight like cornered tigers against us after what looks to be two straight losses to the Mavs.

Going to need alot of energy. I don't know about Gilbert, they may start back playing him next week. I would give him at 4-5 mins per game to work on his timing and game shape.

I was happy knowing that we got two full days off before this game (which is a real treat this season) but I just noticed that Houston does too...

Oh well, at least Marc should be back.

Hope we can get this one......with Lowry out......should be do-able. He always goes nuts when he plays the Grizzlies.

Is Lowry officially out? I thought he was listed as "day-to-day".

Goran Dragic is really really good PG. I'd like to see what he can put up as a full time starter.

I think he is officially out but I'm not quite sure. About a week ago, a report came out saying Lowry would miss 2-4 weeks because of a bacterial infection, but I don't know his status as of now.

If Arenas is going to make a run at playing this season he needs to take advantage of the practice time on Wednesday and Thursday because the Grizzlies may need a big PG to help wear down Goran Dragic in this game.

Camby had like 25 rebounds last time he played us and Gasol might not play :(

That was on a different team in a different city. This is now and our bigs, with or without Gasol, are superior to Houston's even with Camby. The key is going to be if Conley can stay in front of Gordat and keep him from scoring. Personally I think it should be a great matchup of speed vs size and both players will make some big plays and get burned as well.

If you don't like games like this you don't like basketball.

Dragic has had the benefit of being Steve Nash's understudy but the downside is they swapped him for Aaron Brooks.
His brother Zoran might be worth a 2nd round pick next year.

Okay. If he is out, that definitely wouldn't hurt, but we would still have to give it 110%. Houston is one of the places where it's difficult for us to win in. Nomatter how well, or how badly the Rockets are playing.

Effort. Bring it and we win.
