Game Overview: Let's try not to lose by 30 this time, eh?

Also, let's wish Eddie Najera a speedy recovery. I didn't see it, but it sounded awful. We know Najera's a tough guy but a fractured forehead? Scary stuff.

Key matchup: Bismack Biyombo vs. Josh Smith -- We saw what happened last time. Biyombo needs to at least make it tough on Smith. Wednesday, he got into a rhythm from the get-go and that was that. I'm not saying Bismack needs to shut Smith down -- that's just not feasible to expect from a rookie. But he needs to play him tougher. Fight harder for positioning in the low post. Use fouls wisely. Smith is not the best free throw shooter.
