Houston vs. Los Angeles
The Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Clippers both suffered losses last night. The Clippers were done in by the great Tim Duncan and the Rockets got bullied inside the paint by Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph. Both teams will need selective memory when they face off tonight. You know how I feel about back to back games, but in this instance the advantage has to go to Houston. At least they get to play at home after their defeat while Los Angeles is in the middle of the Texas triangle. The Clips are an experienced bunch that can overcome adversity, but that experience also comes with extra miles on the legs. The joints just don't recover at the same speed they used to once you reach 35. Look for Houston to have the fresher legs this evening and blow by Los Angeles.
