Hey ****, what do you mean I can't touch anyone?

After yet another tough loss for this club, we'll see what they have left.

Hopefully Parsons feels better. Hopefully Jonny Flynn and Hasheem Thabeet arrive in Portland on their road trip that everyone wants to be made into a movie. Or at least a tv show.

"One's 7-3! One's 3-7! They're best-buds!"* TV theme song is a work in progress.

Hasheem and Jonny is filmed before a live studio audience.

Jonny: Yo Hash, when are we getting to Portland?

Hasheem: We're almost there, GPS says.

Jonny: Remember when we dominated the Big East?

Hasheem: Yeah, that was great. Everyone was short and no one tried to stop me.

Jonny: I tried to stop you, but I could never grab the ball.

Hasheem: Oh, you got the ball once, but not the basketball.

*Laugh track*

Jonny: Why did that sign say "Now entering Maine?"

Hasheem: Duh, idiot. Portland, Maine. There's lots of trails there. That they blazed.

Jonny: Oh, cool.

Find out next week if the guys will ever get to the real Portland.

And remember, tip is at 8pm CST.

Matchups:

PG: Goran Dragic vs. Steve Nash:

Goran Dragic takes on his mentor once again. And he'll be exhausted.

Nash, by the way, had three games of 15 or more assists last week. Incredible.

Advantage: Suns

SG: Courtney Lee vs. Jared Dudley:

Jared Dudley can shoot.

Courtney will have to match him on offense.

Advantage: Rockets

SF: Chandler Parsons/Chase Budinger vs. Grant Hill:

It's a young white guy against Grant Hill. Budinger usually plays well against the Suns, so that's something to keep in mind.

Advantage: Suns

PF: Luis Scola vs. Channing Frye:

Scola needs to stop thinking and start doing. If that happens, he can have a field day. That is all.

Advantage: Rockets

C: Samuel Dalembert vs. Marcin Gortat:

Marcin Gortat makes an awesome appearance in this video, so it counts.

Go here to see it.

Advantage: Suns

---

Bench/Role Players:

Suns: Sebastian Telfair, Markieff Morris, Robin Lopez, Michael Redd, Shannon Brown

Rockets: Chase Budinger?, Patrick Patterson, Marcus Camby?, Marcus Morris, Courtney Fortson

Advantage: Suns only because no idea who Rockets have available

Injuries/Inactives:

Suns: None

Rockets: Lowry out, Martin questionable, Parsons questionable, Fisher douche, Camby hopefully eligible

Prediction: Suns 110-103

Make sure you get in on TCWHRO (we have to figure out another way to say that)'s fantasy basketball game. Details here. Just make your predictions in the comments, and maybe explain how you came to that conclusion so we have something to talk about.
