Game thread: Rockets vs. Pelicans

The Rockets head to New Orleans to take on the new and improved Pelicans.

It’s good to have real basketball back after the one-week hiatus, and the Rockets get a nice welcome-back present tonight, as they are the first team to take on the new super duo in New Orleans of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins.

The Rockets have a new weapon themselves, and though it’s not exactly on the same level as adding Boogie, I’m excited to see what Lou Willians brings to the table. On paper, he looks like a great fit. Oh... and he will play tonight.

There’s a 7:00pm central time tip-off tonight in New Orleans. Would be nice to get a win to start the back half of the year.
