The Hornets may have a poor record, but they’re a much better team than their record–especially now that they have Eric Gordon back. This is the Hornets team that just came off of a win against the Spurs. It’s going to be a very tough match up for the Rockets after their starters (Parsons and Harden) played a bunch of minutes last night. Hopefully, the Rockets won’t come out sluggish like they have recently. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Hornets blow us out and Rockets have an off night that their fourth quarter heroics can’t pull them out of. Lin did a great job of containing Vasquez last time, so Vasquez will be out for revenge. Lin will need to play aggressively from the opening tip. We’ll see if Lin can do this. I’ll be watching and commenting below on this post. Feel free to join in on the comments.
