Notes
Houston, which is last in the Southwest Division, appeared to be in disarray after a 3-11 start in which they dropped all eight games they played without injured superstar Tracy McGrady, who was out with back spasms. The Rockets are 4-1 since McGrady returned to the lineup on Nov. 29 and have won three straight, including two in a row to start their recent road trip.
I've been a Warriors fan since they traded Chris Webber. Can you imagine how that's like....

This is another danger game! The Rockets are real good now and they can beat anyone. I pick the Warriors but only just because it is a home game. JRich will be tested again with McGrady, Allen spanked him last night

I've got a bad feeling about this game. The Rockettes lost in Oakland last year, and they need each win they can get after their awful start.

I've got the feeling that McGrady will go nuts and win the game for the Rockettes.

Houston +5.

Seems very possible doesn't it. Be nice to se JRich play with or near the level of TMac but that could be asking too much. As long as they play as a team, the Warriors should win

+10. I got a feeling the Warriors are gonna show up on ESPN tonight. Plus, the Rockets still have big name credential (despite their bad record this year). Beating them will really put us higher on the map. Tracy's back? It wont matter. Big game for Baron Davis now that he's back in the limelight of ESPN! Baron, Troy, and Derek are gonna deliver! Plus, I'm calling a bounce back for JR. Last game wasn't his best. I'm thinking at least 25 for Richardson.

I like your optimism 32. I think we get get this one as well. I believe that the boys are a little dissappointed in their game lst night. they should have won in regulation. They will be coming out gunning. Besides Tmac Houston cant match us especially our bench. We got this one by at least 5.

Rockets veterans can't keep up with young Warriors. I bet a lot of Chinese fans are going to show up. Still Warriors win.
