Two unbeaten teams.
One decisive game.
Winner takes all.
Okay, so it's not that epic tonight. Despite the Rockets and Suns being 2-0, this game is firmly in the "Who Cares?" category for Houston sports. However, tonight you can take a break from the disappointment of Houston sports and watch a real (preseason) winner.
Obviously the Rockets are still playing most of the young kids, and that will probably extend to the end of the preseason. Francisco Garcia and Propeller Plane are unlikely to play much in the preseason since old guys usually sit out most of the camp stuff. You know, since they're old.
I'm hoping that we'll get to see Joey Dorsey and Clint Capela tonight, even if it's in limited minutes. Jeff Adrien and Tarik Black have been pleasant surprises through two games (small sample size alert!), and Black looks like he might surprise everyone and make the roster. Oh, and Ariza keeps on playing well and making me miss the $46 Million Mistake even less.
The Suns will be a fun team again this year, and along with the Lakers and Pelicans look to be the teams in the Western Conference looking to jump into the top 8 and make the playoffs.
Tip-off is at 7pm CST. The game in on CSN Houston and NBA TV. I don't know if it will be blacked out.
