Houston Rockets Game Previews: What Do You Guys Want?

Hey guys, I'm not dead or anything. Just in medical school, so pretty close to dead sometimes. I'm currently lucid, so I wanted to ask if there's anything I can do with the game previews. 

First, a quick note. I've wanted to change the "matchups" portion for a while now. Instead of using the starters, I want to use the players who actually get the most time at that certain position. For the Rockets, that hasn't been a problem. However, there are teams like the Mavericks who start DeShawn Stevenson and Peja Stojakovic when it's really Jason Terry and Shawn Marion who get the real playing time at the 2 and 3, respectively. 

Now, I don't have the time to break down matchups against opponents completely like Tom does when he busts out his Synergy account and shows statistics that blow minds. Heck, even Tom probably doesn't have time to do that, but he does because he's cooler than me, and definitely better with numbers. 

I know TheChuckwagonisrolling was talking about making a game of the predictions. As someone who is terrible at this, I bet that would be cool. I've also got the records of each referee for all Rockets games last year, so as soon as the NBA posts that info (usually the morning of each game), I'll be sure to update the preview with that.

Oh, last thing. Writing three straight previews for a back-to-back-to-back sounds terrible. Not only would I hate doing it (the main reason I won't), but the quality would be awful for the third game especially. So, I may figure out some way to have someone else write a preview or two here and there. Maybe based on predicting a prior game correctly? Whatever. 

Anyway, let me know if there's anything you want in the previews for the upcoming season.
