Maybe we can pray for an early foul trouble of Howard. Only under these circumstances we can win without J-Rich or with a not fully healthy J-Rich.
And I'm really annoyed at people who always compare Howard and Okafor, and eventually sh.t at Okafor for not being as great as Howard. This is ridiculous. When they were drafted anyone knew that Howard was pure potential, Okafor was more NBA-ready but Howard had a much higher ceiling. And nothing unexpected happened. Okafor won ROY as expected, Howard became a beast as expected. I'm not saying that I'm satisfied with Okafor's progress, he should have been at least consistent on offensive end by now, but don't forget that he's one of 4 players who averaged for the past 4 seasons (the others are Duncan, Nash and Howard).
Well, honestly I expect a 3-6 record after the game, but who knows? Morrison could explode for 30 points, we may win. Go Bobcats.
