why is it you keep on talking about "pressure" ?
sorry but I've noticed it since you posted it quite often:

pressure of having homecourt?
pressure of keeping homecourt?
pressure of not being the underdog?

come on get real. pressure isn't going to affect the series.
stop using it as a factor or smth, talk more basketball.

Talking Re: Round 1: Jazz vs. Rockets *Official Thread*

Jazz are 5-2 last two years against Rockets.
2-1 when Yao & McGrady play.
1-1 when just McGrady plays.
1-0 when just Yao plays.
1-0 when neither plays.

2-2 @ Houston.
3-0 @ Utah.

In one Rocket win Deron and Booz played a combined 39 minutes, while the Rocks were at full strength.(05-06)
In the other Rocket win Okur and Fisher shot a combined 3-18, that doesn't happen often, I think it only happened once this year actually.(06-07)

You know he does have a point.

When you feel that you're the underdog you have more pressure to do everything possible to win. Whether the Jazz are an underdog or not is still up for debate as it's reasonably close.

Pressure of having home court? Perhaps not a huge factor, I will agree. But a factor none the less.

I'm predicting a Jazz win in 7 games. I'm eager for this series, it's just a great matchup.

Don't worrry Jazz fans, we've got the 'Curse of Barkely' on us, y'know, when Charles Barkely says a team will win games it usually goes on a losing streak.

Well, that's actually probably bad for Jazz fans, since last I checked Barkley picked the Jazz to win the series...

He's about the only public figure saying that, though. ESPN, Foxsports, sportingnews, etc. are all picking the Rockets.

Things are officially back to normal. Its playoff time and the Jazz are being underrated and overlooked by the national media.

I want the Rockets to win but gut feeling has me towards the Jazz. Should be the best first round series IMO.

You should quit your current job and become a NBA analyst right away. Yao can "sh!t on Okur" all day if he so wishes, the mismatch goes both ways. And if you ever watched a Jazz game, you know that Okur has range. So for Yao it's either stick with Okur (and abandon the paint... Boozer will love this) or let him shoot.

So yeah, let Yao sh!t around as much as he wants.

Who can simply guard T-Mac? Seriously. The guy's a monster when he's in a rhythm. Rockets in 7.
