We lost against the Nuggets, but don't worry. I watched the win over the Jazz again and I felt way better afterwards.

It's Saturday, and I've got a Respiratory Pathology exam on Monday, so it's one-sentence preview day. I believe we are 2-0 on these days.

Tip off is at 7pm CST.

Matchups:

Point Guard: Jeremy Lin vs. Kemba Walker

Lin is looking forward to this rematch, especially since he didn't get to play in the fourth quarter against the Bobcats last time since he couldn't contain Walker.

Advantage: Rockets

Shooting Guard: James Harden vs. Ramon Sessions

Sessions is a SG and Gerald Henderson starts, but last time Sessions killed us; the Rockets can't give him the easy lay-ups again.

Advantage: Rockets

Small Forward: Chandler Parsons vs. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

I really liked MKG and thought the Blazers should have traded up for him.

Advantage: Even

Power Forward: Patrick Patterson vs. Jeff Adrien

This shouldn't even be close, but we'll see.

Advantage: Rockets

Center: Omer Asik vs. Bismack Biyombo

Biyombo had 7 blocks last time, which cannot happen again.

Advantage: Rockets

Bench

Rockets: Toney Douglas, Carlos Delfino, Greg Smith, Marcus Morris, Patrick Beverley

Bobcats: Brendan Haywood, Ramon Sessions, Jeffery Taylor, Ben Gordon

Advantage: Rockets

Prediction: This shouldn't be close; Rockets win 115-91.
