Rockets vs. Grizzlies game thread

Showdown No. 3

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

This is the third time the Rockets face the Grizzlies this year. The first time, the Rockets were largely healthy and got blown out. The second time, the Rockets were banged up and won.

This time, the Rockets have a different team. The starting lineup now features Josh Smith. The bench now features Corey Brewer and Alexey Shved. Dwight Howard is healthy. Donatas Motiejunas is on the bench.

I have no clue what to expect, and anyone who says they do is lying. The Rockets follow up the Grizzlies with back-to-back games against the Spurs and Wizards on Sunday and Monday. They have to figure this thing out quick.
