    Default Game #8: Toronto Raptors 104 - Houston Rockets 110 (F/OT2)

    Nice game tonight I love watching Chandler Parsons play that guy is such a steal for Houston, excited to see how JV plays Howard and how his defense has improved against the upper tier bigs in the league. Will DC employ Hack-A-Howard like all other teams in the league and steal another W?

    Is Kyle Lowry playing?
    Is DeMar going to take advantage of a James Harden that never plays D?
    Is James going to take advantage of a DeMar DeRozan that hardly plays D?
    Does this game really matter?
    If We win what does it mean for the Raps besides being 4-4?
    Is Linsanity going to appear?
    Will Hansborough elbow Dwight in the eye socket?


    SO MANY STORIES!!!!

    The Raps should only ever wear the Black when Away and White at home, really gotta use those more they look so mean. Lowry going down is pro Tank.

    The gameday preview missed the most key aspect of Houston's game so far:

    When Howard and Asik are both on the floor (which they are about a quarter of the time), the Rockets are -14.1 per hundred minutes. When only ONE of Howard or Asik is on the floor, the Rockets are +10.7 per hundred minutes.

    The Twin Towers strategy isn't working for Houston in the slightest, but they keep trying to make it work because Asik (not unreasonably) wants to start.

    I hate those "tank" camouflage uniforms and hope never to see them again.

    If Harden is not 100% I think Toronto can steal this.

    We're going to see a lot of Aaron Gray tonight, and the use of his 6 fouls.....

    Houston's game has also slowed down considerably when those 2 are on the floor.

    Harding and Lin also have less room to drive into the paint, and they are shooting a lot more end of shot clock last minute bricks.

    I often wondered what the the questions looked like must be a long list of angry fan questions.

    I did hear during the half-time shootaround against the Jazz, he did participate in that, so I think they just rested him for the game as they didn't need him in that game as much.

    Winnable game for the Raptors. Rockets are OVERRATED in my opinion.

    Harden and Dwight combine for <55 points. That's my prediction.

    Prediction 1: Raptors win by 8-10
    Prediction 2: DeHarden outplays real Harden.
