It’s a battle of unbeaten teams tonight, as the 3-0 Houston Rockets host the 2-0 Memphis Grizzlies at the Toyota Center.

The Rockets will be without Chris Paul, who continues to battle a sore knee, though they did get some other good news on the injury front. Ryan Anderson, who has been dealing with a sore lower back and was questionable for tonight’s game, will be active.

With Paul out, the burden of carrying the team will continue to fall on James Harden. Thus far, he’s responded like he always has: brilliantly. The Beard was just named Western Conference Player of the Week for his first-week performance.

The Rockets played the Grizz in their shortened preseason schedule, handing Memphis a 101-89 defeat in Tennessee. The Rockets used their revamped defense to put the clamps down on the Memphis offense, so hopefully we’ll see some of the same here tonight in H-town.

As always, AK is on the game preview. Be sure to check it out before the game starts.

Go Rockets!
