Tonight is preseason game No. 3 for the Rockets, and they'll be without James Harden and Dwight Howard, possibly in reaction to Kevin Durant's broken foot injury. Here's what we'll watch for in their absence:
- GORILLA DUNKSSSSS
- Big Papa is also starting. Curious to see how he performs against starting quality opposition, especially on the defensive end.
- The backcourt minutes should be monitored more and more closely as the preseason progresses. Jason Terry may play tonight. What does that mean for Ish Smith, Nick Johnson and Isaiah Canaan?
