Rockets vs. Sixers game thread: 4-0 is in our grasp

The Rockets will probably keep this thing going.

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Both Dwight Howard and Tarik Black are questionable to play tonight, but even so, the Rockets should have no problem handling the Philadelphia 76ers. They are the tankiest team in a league that's ever more focused on tanking. They have no one on the squad better than any one of the Rockets starters.

Of course, this feels like a jinx, but the Rockets are simply playing within themselves these first three games. Nothing looks fluky (except perhaps Trevor Ariza's shooting), everything looks like it should still be humming against the woeful Sixers, who aren't exactly healthy themselves.

Score prediction: 113-91. Discuss everything below.
