Artest will be held in check. Houston can keep imagining that they're better in the absence of T-Mac. But against a team like the Lakers its going to show what a huge liability not having him on the court actually is. Expect Drew to be back in defensive form vs. Yao/ Yao wont run around the key like Boozer does. Yao is a conventional stay down in the post center who rarely uses the pick and rolls. They have no answer for Pau. And Shannon....I just cant wait to see what else this cat can do....He's awesome so far.
And the TrailFaders....RipCity....lol. It really will be RIP after 5 games. I'm not worried at all about them. Let Roy have his 40 points or whatever. Theres nobody else...Rudy Fernandez is great, but he wont be able to handle Lamar or KB.
edit: Added Poll.
