Rockets vs. Magic game thread: Oladip-nooooo

Rockets must hope to avoid another loss to inferior competition tonight

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Rockets might be without Patrick Beverley and Jason Terry tonight, an unfriendly proposition against a Magic team with a burgeoning young backcourt.

Victor Oladipo had himself a game last time the Magic played the Rockets, leading the underdog Mickey Mouse crew to an upset. The Rockets can overtake Portland for the No. 3 seed with a win, so Dipo must be stop. Activate Beard.

Even if Bev and JET are playing, Pablo Prigioni figures to get some run. This might not be the greatest of things.

So he takes care of the ball but he's been a steaming pile of liability when he's not passing said ball. The Magic aren't exactly brimming with depth, so hopefully Pablo gets a chance to get some run. This game is obviously not a must-win, but it's definitely a "come on, don't lose this one, guys."
