Three in a row! We may never lose again!

The Rockets deal with the first of likely 80 back-to-backs this season tonight in New Orleans. It's our first chance to see how Omer Asik fits in with a team that is understandably giddy to have acquired his services. The Pelicans, much like the Suns last night, have playoff aspirations this season. And they haven't played since last Wednesday. Wut.

Joey Dorsey played last night, and did less than nothing. But it's Joey Dorsey so who cares?! I WANT MOAR!

I don't think Harden or Howard will play again tonight, but remember the last time Harden played in New Orleans?

Those ankles on Austin Rivers will never be the same.

Finally, is anyone looking forward to the first Pelicans-Hornets game of the season? Mostly just because everyone will be confused and it's an announcer's nightmare.

Tip-off is at 7pm CST.
