I'm just hoping for a hard fought game and a nice Kyrie vs. Harden battle.

But yeah, wouldn't be surprised if this is just a scheduled Celtics loss.

What I won't be a fan of is seeing Harden flopping all game and going to the line like 20 times tonight (can't wait to see all the complaining that will happen around here tonight as well!  :laugh:)

UPDATE: Marcus Morris may be available tonight. But still now Jaylen or Air Semi.

So Smart starts and covers Harden and Kyrie can work on Gordon.  I am fine with that.  I think Kyrie can score on Gordon better than Harden can score on Smart so I am looking for a big game from Kyrie.  We will need it that is for sure.

Lots of injured Rockets and they haven't exactly been lighting it up lately losing three in a row, 2 to bad Laker and Clippers teams. I am feeling good about tonight

I never look forward to playing the Rockets, mainly because of Harden and the star calls he gets.  He leads the league - by far - in FT attempted per game at an astonishing 10.2 per game.  The next is Giannis (who I'm getting annoyed by as well due to the favoritism) at 9.6 per game.  Then there's a huge dropoff - the next is Embiid at 8.2, and everyone else is 8 or below.

This may be a big problem since we don't have Brown.  We're going to need Smart and Irving to stay out of foul trouble.

Thank you Rondofan, anyone else feel our win chances are better than 50-50?

Tonight could be a good night to get some mojo back or just let this current slump continue. Feels like a house money game.

Watching the pre-game warm up and Kyrie is absolutely locked in and relentless in his dribbling drills.  Other players standing around and/or taking an occasional shot from outside.

I hope his work ethic and dribbling skills, which take work to perfect, rub off on other players (most notably Rozier and Jaylen) in time.

We *literally* beat the Warriors earlier this season playing small.  ::)
