I’m going to say what I said before the last game with Houston and it applies here again – Harden will get his points but we still need to shut down Asik, Parsons and the outside shooting of Cook and Delfino. Delfino, in the last game, showed signs of warming up by hitting a couple 3s but our defense prevailed. Our defense still needs to step up and with Jackson and Leonard still out, the bench have to play ‘their’ game and provide energy to back up the starters. But Houston is tough at home and as someone has already posted, is charged with the return of McHale at the helm. The final score will be closer than last game but I feel we can pull it out.
Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.
