    Clutch the Bear is the current mascot for the Houston Rockets. The original mascot was a rocket named Booster. From 1993 to 1995, the Rockets had "Turbo." In 1995, they debuted a second mascot - Clutch - who was a co-mascot until 2003 when Turbo retired. - from Wikipedia

    Houston comes into G1C for our 80th game of the season. It's pretty certain the Kings will once again be playing with a very short roster. No idea what the Rockets will do, however. They're firmly entrenched in 3rd place in the West and don't need to win and can absorb a loss. They play the Clippers on Monday, however, so they may be "resting" players before that matchup. :p

    If I had to guess on our available players, I'd go with:

    Papa G

    I want to see a good game. And I don't want to see James Harden...or Nene...or Ryan Anderson.

    Apropos of nothing, I'd like to see an alternate Rockets jersey with a giant beard on the bottom of the 'o' in either Rockets or Houston.

    The starting lineup is too talented. Just resting Collison isn't enough. Why is Temple playing ahead of Afflalo? Etc

    Rockets are just a boring club. It used to be that high scoring and three point heavy teams were automatically entertaining but even when they are totally on, it's boring.

    It seems i innovated this style of play in the late 90's when i was playing NBA Live on Playstation 1. Use the player with the highest rating for everything(usually a created player) so he can have a triple double and just jack up threes with the rest of the scrubs.

    watching the Rockets drop 40 in a quarter is making me yawn

    Considering they do nothing but chuck up three's...yeah, it's boring. That's the Mike D'Antoni way, under 7 seconds or less!

    This is the kind of garbage basketball I would love to see the Kings get good playing against.

    watching these players jump into a defenders arms when not even in the motion of shooting is despicable to the game of basketball, atrocious officiating and the fact that they give the offensive players free throws for that is silly. :confused:

    Seems Phoenix had something more to them.

    Maybe they just had more grace, flare, and overall personality.

    There is something ugly about Houston. Maybe it's Hardens whistle baiting style that seems suited for a grinding half court style of play and the rest of the guys are strictly defined by their ability to hit open threes and nothing else. No above the rim and pick n roll beast like Amare, no two way stud like Marion, no enforcer like Bell, no second playmaker like Diaw...

    I suppose D'antonis PHX teams were just considerably more dynamic and better.

    Steve Nash with his finesse style, Prime Amare going beast mode, The Brazilian blur barbosa, Prime Matrix, and raja bell. How can you not enjoy that squad?

    They were biting golden era King's style!

    But yeah, I always rooted for them in the post season. Fun team to watch for sure.

    I think every game at least one time in the game I say I love Garrett Temple.

    Here comes the pointless comeback followed by a tank job by Dallas.

    No wonder Ryan didn't want to come to the Kings. He would lose those 4 games per year that he is sure to play out of his head

    If Phoenix is gonna play like this I hope it's the same against us.

    Rudy Gay with the unlikable interview

    Health will determine whether he opts out. The only thing that binds him here, if he's good the inference is he will be gone

    I do too but I wish he would hit the 3 more consistently. If he can improve that for next year that would help his game a lot.

    Surprised Harden is still out there. Playoffs start in a week and Houston is up by 18.

    Guys like him, AD, KAT and WCS are the future "archetype" of the C position. We're just at a point in the NBA where your big man HAS to be able to at least show on the perimeter and have the ability to show and recover on a PnR ball-handler.

    I think Vlade has visions of the low post, high post dynamic(Webber and Vlade) with Papa G and Skal when they're all grown. Both show pretty good passing chops.
