Speak for yourself, considering that the last time we were in the playoffs we became that 11th team.

Default Re: Round 1: Jazz vs. Rockets games 1 and 2

1 - Are we ever going to see Okur in this series? He played better defense in
game 2, but where is his shot? Is gaurding Yao taking it from him?
2 - Boozer can now be considered Utah's go to guy. I don't want to see
one person say they don't have one, or use that as an excuse if
they lose this series.
3 - Battier is the reason Kirelinko is playing worse than his ****ty season.
They are practically the same player, Kirelinko has a little better court
vision but Battier is physically and mentally better.
4 - Someone suggested playing Kirelinko at the four off the bench.
Why not?, Millsap would be much more productive starting at small
forward against Battier. Harpring, Girecek, and Kirelinko playing as
a second unit would be tough for Houston.
5 - Neither team is anywhere near contender level.
6 - Yao and McGrady were a little too confident right after game 2.
Not saying they were cocky or said anything wrong, just noticed that
look in their eyes in interviews.
7 - Expect twice as many free throws for Utah in game 3 and game 4.
8 - This coffee tastes really good.
9 - Still haven't seen either team play a complete game.

A few random thoughts. Congrats to Rockets for game 2. Based on history it looks like the Jazz are done, but come on, this series isn't over. I think we will be in Houston for game 5 tied two games a piece. If either Okur or Kirelinko had had even a 10 point game in Houston Jazz would have won both those games. I know woulda, coulda, shoulda. But Utah hasn't been blown out of either of these games, and the Rockets certainly haven't dominated them.

good post. this series isnt over. the last time rockets were in the playoffs, we were up 2-0...look what happened then. neither team has played their best ball yet. we may be up 2-0, but it could very well be 0-2. we played like crap so far. hopefully houston finds itself before utah does. see u guys thurs.

Yao and Tmac are not cocky, they are hungry especially Tmac. They know they have to finish the series, they didn't before.

I dont feel safe with 2-0 at ALL. Tomorrow is going to be the toughest game for the rox of the series IMO.

That's all we could ask for as Rockets fan because this is not going to be a sweep by any means.

If we are going to win one, I hope it is the first game.

game 3 is the most important game in this series so far. t-mac knows he needs to close this series and winning game three can make it more comfortable for the rockets. jazz need to win this game on their home floor at least.

This will be the best game of the series so far. Look for Utah too come out swingin'. They will probally try too get Okur/AK involved earlier.

Like the above poster said, this is T-Macs times. A when here will all but guarentee the series fir Houston.
