I’m not going to lie to you, this game snuck up on me. I’m going to keep it short and sweet. I will either be around right at game time or as late as 10PM. Either way, let’s get off this losing streak.
The Match- ups:
Edge: Clippers –
McGrady vs. Mobley – Tracy McGrady has started this season extremely well. He has not shot more than 4 threes in a game yet and while I want him to shoot no more than 2 if he misses both, I’ll take that as a win. I think given the back to back, you won’t see as much from him tonight. Luckily, Cuttino Mobley has played 2.4 seconds of defense in his career. Mobley is not the offensive player at 33 that he once was, he’s drastically dropped off from his 04-05 production and I don’t see him doing much more than his average tonight.
Edge: Rockets – Tracy McGrady is playing more efficiently that I’ve ever seen him play in his career, he gets a big edge.
Edge: Rockets – Artest is better until
Scola vs. Camby – Luis Scola better play in the 4th quarter tonight unless we are up by 20 points. He’s been phenomenal in his minutes this year and they have unjustifiably been limited. Marcus Camby is the most overrated defender in the entire league. Yes he gets blocks, he also gets blown by all the time and does not position himself well a majority of the time. Sorry, I don’t believe the hype. He’s still a good player, but he’s not God’s gift to defense.
Edge: Rockets – When Scola is on the court, he’s awesome
Edge: Rockets –
My Prediction: Rockets win... big
