Houston Rockets vs. Milwaukee Bucks game preview

New, comments

The Rockets will try to score more than 19 second-half points tonight when they host the visiting Milwaukee Bucks.

Andrew Richardson-USA TODAY Spor

Quick preview today. It's Saturday, after all.

Early in their recent podcast, Mike and BD talked about how they expect the Rockets to destroy bad teams but they keep letting them into games.

The Milwaukee Bucks are the worst team in the NBA, and anything other than a 15+ point win will be a disppointment for a team that has it's sights set on a deep postseason run.

Tip off is at 7pm CST

Matchups:

Point Guard: Jeremy Lin vs. Brandon Knight

Knight is a quick guard who can beat you off the dribble. Those kinds of players kill the Rockets.

As for Lin, I'm going to cut off his toes so he never makes a long two again.

Advantage: Even

Shooting Guard: James Harden vs. Luke Ridnour

Please.

Advantage: Rockets

Small Forward: Chandler Parsons vs. Giannis Antetokounmpo

Um in what now?

Advantage: Rockets

Power Forward: Terrence Jones vs. Ersan Ilyasova

Jones plays yet another rumored future Rocket! Who cares?

Advantage: Even

Center: Dwight Howard vs. Larry Sanders

Garry Shandling is always a handful. Players on the drive need to know where he is and how committed he is to stopping them.

Advantage: Rockets

Bench

Rockets: Aaron Brooks, Francisco Garcia, Omri Casspi, Greg Smith (maybe), Donatas Motiejunas

Bucks: John Henson, Khris Middleton, Caron Butler, Miroslav Raduljica, O.J. Mayo

Advantage: I don't know anymore.

Prediction: Rockets win 111-83.
