The Rockets and Grizzlies will face off for the last time tonight during the regular season.

Thursday’s game was an awesome one for the Houston Rockets and James Harden.  The team scored 90 points, yes, 90 in the first half.


Additionally, Jonathan Feigen tweeted that James Harden has been averaging 37.6 points in the past eight games. And for the season, he has been averaging 31.8 points per game. He is ballin’ !

Harden averaged 26.1 points in the first 8 games of the season. He has averaged 37.6 and 10.9 assists in the past 8 (with Rockets 7-1.)

In other great news, CP3 is back. He only played 21 minutes but I am sure every Rockets fan cherished those minutes. He finished the game with 11 points, 4 rebounds, 10 assists and 2 steals.

It was definitely a good start for Chris Paul, who had been out with a knee injury. Hopefully, we see a little more of him tonight.




Injury Report


Luc Mbah a Moute is listed as day-to-day. He did not play against the Suns on Thursday due to an illness. Therefore, he may be out tonight against the Grizzlies.

Nene Hilario is also day-to-day. He is dealing with a sprained foot, however, he did play against the Suns on Thursday. We can assume that he will be playing against the Grizzlies with limited minutes as a precaution.


Mike Conley has been ruled OUT. Earlier today, it was announced that Conely is out indefinitely with an Achilles injury.

Mike Conley (Achilles) is OUT indefinitely. There is no timetable for his return.

In addition, Wayne Selden is ruled OUT with a sore right quad.

So Can We Even It Up? 

1-2 is the current matchup record, so with a win, the Houston Rockets can even it up. Although tonight’s final score will probably not be as high, I believe it will still be a heck of a game.

Therefore, I am predicting the matchup record for the regular season will close at 2-2.

Next: Eric Gordon will attempt to repeat as the Sixth Man of the Year
