Rockets vs. Grizzlies game thread: A chance for redemption

Houston is still missing four key guys. The Grizzlies are still very good. But we're hopeful (I think).

The Rockets host the Grizzlies tonight, trying to make a better showing than the 30-point drubbing they got earlier in the season -- their first loss, way back when.

The Rockets had Dwight Howard back then, but they also hadn't been tested. Without Howard, Patrick Beverley, Isaiah Canaan and Terrence Jones, the Rockets have beaten the Mavericks and the Kings, two of the better teams in the Western Conference. The Grizzlies are arguably the best team in the league, so no one is expecting the Rockets to win.

Neither am I, but man it would be great.
