A couple of quick notes for tonight's game:

  • Jason Collins is in the house! But he's inactive. Though he did have this awesome quote to share: when asked how he has been able to stay in the league, he responded "Twelve years of being able to foul people." That got a good chuckle out of the press crowd.
  • Kevin McHale praised the Wizards on their ball movement. Later, when asked about the impact of the Jordan Crawford trade, he said "That's probably why the ball is moving more."
  • McHale also said his team doesn't run enough. Considering they score the most points per game in the NBA, have the fastest pace in the league, and they have the 4th highest points scored per 100 possessions, we can probably expect the Rockets to run a lot tonight.
