With All-Star Weekend fast approaching, it’s time to look at some predictions for the events.

The Houston Rockets have the best record in the league going into the All-Star break at 44-13. That is certainly nice to say. They are half a game ahead of the Golden State Warriors currently after they lost to the Portland Trail Blazers last night.

Speaking of the All-Star break, the Rockets have a few members of the team participating in events. James Harden will start for Team Stephen in the big event on Sunday night. Coach Mike D’Antoni will also be participating in that event, coaching Team Stephen. Finally, Eric Gordon will look to defend his title in the 3-point contest.

While the Rockets should have had more than one All-Star, it is still nice to see the Beard get recognized for the MVP-quality season he’s had. It’ll also be cool for him to get coached by MDA on Sunday.

Let’s get into a few of my predictions for what the weekend may hold for the Rockets, one for each participant.
