Woooo! Going into San Antonio under the bright lights AND getting the win?!? Absolutely love it! Now the Rockets head home to face the 12-15 Memphis Grizzlies. The Rockets are 1-0 against the Grizzlies this season coming back to defeat them 93-86 in late November. This time around things are a bit different for the both teams. The Rockets were without James Harden and the Grizzlies were with Tayshaun Prince, whereas tonight it will be the opposite. Tonight’s game is at 7:00 PM and can be seen on TNT and CSN Houston.
Conley leads the Grizzlies in scoring (17.3 ppg) and is one of their biggest threats on the floor. Lin will need a repeat defensive performance from last night after holding Tony Parker to just 6 points.
Yes, that James Johnson. The former Rio Grande Valley Viper was picked up by the Grizzlies earlier this month. In 4 games he’s averaging 6.8 ppg.
Though Randolph isn’t a big name, he’s still one of the better power forwards in the game. Randolph is averaging a shade under 17/10 this season. Hopefully we see the Jones from last night (21/14).
Howard’s favorite cereal is Kosta Koufos.
Prediction - Rockets on a back-to-back. At home. Under the bright lights. Rockets 99-89.
