Sixers head west from New Orleans to take on the Rockets and their motley crue of successful role players. After a night where our bench scored 50 points, Samuel Dalembert tied Kevin Love for most consecutive double-digit rebounding games (13), and Jrue Holiday played only 18 minutes, the starters should be relatively rested and able to match Houston's depth and athleticism. I can't imagine us winning this game, but maybe it's more of a creeping dread that this team may actually win 38 games and play themselves into the 12th pick of the draft.
A mere 12 days until the trade deadline comes and goes, and I'm praying there's more going than coming. Sexual innuendo unintentional. Somebody's gotta get fired, somebody's gotta get traded, and we gotta go back to losing games. Mediocrity is unacceptable and beyond frustrating. But it's all we've got.
