It's always Christmas or Thanksgiving or Super Bowl time for me when the Warriors play the Houston Rockets. As you can see I'm a fan of the big Yao, so tonight I'm excited to see him and the Warriors in action. I don't want to regurgitate how nice it would have been should we have drafted Yao (impossible) back in the day but instead let's focus on our team coming back to full strength, our impressive win last night, and how we can control the big three in Texas tonight.

But first another super bowl ad favorite:

If you didn't get a chance to see the game last night please read Fantasy Junkie's recap. It was a great opportunity for us to win on national television and to show the rest of the league that when at full strength and with a little luck ... we can hang! It was a great game and truly a team effort to beat the Hornets. Not a bad start to our 7 game horrific schedule. Let's see if we can pull another one off after a game last night.

The Rockets are also struggling coming off a two game losing streak WITH their top three players active so obviously they are having issues. We'll see if they still do or if the Warriors are their answer to regroup. I doubt it. It's strange to see TMac, Artest, and Yao play at the same time but have no rhythm. I'm thinking with Maggette's points per minutes, Biens and Ronny guarding Yao, and Crawford and Ellis' shooting, we have a great chance to win! Do you agree?

YaoButta's predictions:

- Warriors win by 2 at the buzzer.

- The commercials stink.

- Ellis and Maggette combine for 45 points.

- Yao has a monster Double Double. But starts slow because of Biens and Turiaf.

- Artest shows us why we should have traded for him.
