The Spurs are riding a 4-game win streak into Rocketland. We have Manu AND Tony back and things are clicking.
Grab your rod, your tackle box, and your lucky hat. I expect to see some quality fish tonight. Come see what I've got in the tank.
Keys To The Game:
Some other reading:
The Dream Shake is great. One, they tear up their team when it is appropriate. Two, they have a great message for Bill Simmons -- although I take exception to the thought that the Rockets are more of a contender than we are. Three, they love Scola and they don't troll our blog reminding us that we gave him to them.
Plus, you'll get to see a little Q&A with me.
Other things of possible interest:
I expect Pop to use a lot of small lineups with Udoka or FinDog at the 4. This would force Yao to cover Tim and Scola to patrol the perimeter. I like our chances with that matchup. It also means that in order to take advantage of it, the Rockets would have to run their offense through Scola instead of Yao and I'll take that to.
