Game 8: The New Orleans Hornets vs. The Houston Rockets

New, comments

The Houston Rockets saw a lot of the Hornets during the preseason. Despite some injuries to their best players, the Hornets have been pretty good so far this year. Anthony Davis had 23 points, 11 rebounds in five blocks last Friday in the big easy.

Questions to Consider:

Anthony Davis is every bit as good as we thought he'd be. The lanky big man out Kentucky can and will change the game on both ends of the floor if you let him. How will the Rockets plan on minimizing Anthony Davis' impact? Who guards him?

If the Rockets play anything like they did against the Heat, this game won't be close. Will Houston be able to replicate the defensive effort they exhibited on Monday against Miami?

During the second preseason game against the Hornets, former college teammates Anthony Davis and Terrence Jones went head to head and Jones came out on top. Will temporary head coach Kelvin Sampson give Terrence Jones another chance to prove who is the best Wildcat?

Finally, will Royce White ever stop tweeting?
