So after losing crucial games vs Phoenix Sun and San Antonio Spurs and dropped back to below 0.5, Houston Rockets will play once again Phoenix Sun in Toyota Centre.

This will be a re-match within a week's time. The Rockets lost 111 ~ 108 just last week to the Phoenix Sun on their home court.

Needless to say, this is a MUST WIN if the the Rockets is to take advantage of the slippages of Portland TrailBlazers, Memphis Grizzlies, Phoenix Sun and Utah Jazz who are all in a losing streak of 2.

The key to win for this game is DEFENSE and how the Rockets can curb and contain Vince Carter and Hakim Warrick who combined for 64 points 1 week ago against the Rockets.

The good news is that Steve Nash might not be playing this game due to injury, and Aaron Brooks will be starting.

So provided Kyle Lowry and Goran Dragic can repeat what they did to Aaron Brooks in that game in Phoenix,
the chance for winning is much enhanced.

GO GO GO ROCKETS !!! GO FOR A WIN TO REBOUNCE BACK TO 0.5 !!!
