With James Harden out today and doubtful vs. Jazz tomorrow, the Rockets are behind the 8-ball and could really use a win today despite strenuous circumstances.
The Rockets are just 8-7 in games where Harden does not play in the last three seasons.
In a game against a very good Nuggets team, a win would add a lot of confidence to a team that has been through a rough patch as of late.
It would also shoulder the blow of a likely loss tomorrow evening with both Harden and Westbrook out against the Jazz at home.
Let’s see if Brodie and Co. can work their magic!
