GameThread: Rockets vs. Grizzlies

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

The Rockets have left Houston today after two disappointing home losses and will look to keep the away game streak alive in Memphis. Tony Allen will be as equally disruptive of a perimeter defender on James Harden as Andre Iguodala was last Wednesday. Harden is still adjusting to being the focus of opposing team's scouting reports and so far he has yet to prove he can rise to the challenge. Perhaps tonight that changes.

Questions to Consider:

Will James Harden be able to find his groove against another defensively gifted backcourt?

How good are the Memphis Grizzlies looking with another year under their belt? Second round solid or first round fodder?

Will we see our first Rockets rookie get minutes tonight?

Jeremy Lin has been more of a defender and playmaker than a scorer - with the defense honed in on Harden, could Lin have his second 20+ point game?

Scott Machado and Royce White will remain inactive for tonight's game. Greg Smith expected to play per Feigen.
