Default Round 1 Jazz @ Rockets game 5 Tue night

Game 5 in: Utah Jazz @ Houston Rockets - 9:30pm ET - Utah leads 3-1

I didnt see a Thread on Game 5.

Rockets in a Do or Die situation Tonight. So many things the Rockets need to do better to keep themselves in this series. I said it in another thread some where, If the Rockets WERE going to step and win this series, They already would have. They would have won at least 1 of those 3 very close games they lost and tied this series up 2-2.

Which brings me to my next point, Tracy McGrady. - I also said in another thread both, That T-Mac should not be held completely responsible for the Rockets failure in the post season. HOWEVER - Im not taking any credit away for the great things T-mac has done in this series, BUT Tracy was given the OPPORTUNITY to shine even brighter and carry this team to ATLEAST 2 maybe 3 WINS in this series.

Look at what Joe Johnson acomplished last night against the best team, best defense in the league. He carried his team thru-out and in the 4th quarter and made what most thought was impossible - possible. Tracy has been given the chance to do the same, we can get into to comparing Tracy's supporting cast vs Joe's supporting cast, but it doesnt matter. Point is, Joe hit HUGE shots and freethrows down the stretch last night, and Tracy had back to back scoreless 4th quarters at home.

Rockets have yet to get blown out. Each game has game down to who is clutch when it matters most. Tracy has not stepped up in the clutch, and in his defense, no Rocket other than Landry's HUGE block has really stepped up when they were needed the most. Missed crucial Jumpers, Missed Crucial freethrows, crucial lay ups, and committed stupid fouls and stupid turnovers.

Jazz have given T-Mac and the Rockets plenty of opportunity to take over and win these games. Rockets cant get it done. Im not sure the Jazz will seal the deal tonight in Houston, but If they dont, they more than likely will do it in 6 in Utah.

Time for the Jazz to end this. Looking forward to this game, I hope the Jazz knock every Houston player on their ass, so they can see what physical really is.

I want to kill Ronnie Price at the end of quarters. 10... 9... 8... 7... 6... 5... 4... oops, out of time, better heave it. BRICK.

He has no passing/playmaking ability.

Yeah, he jacks it up like that every time, but it almost seems like it's encouraged, or it's his job. He needs to starts hitting them or knock it off.

Jazz are struggling to score, they need to post up Boozer, down low and let him go to work, take his guy one on one and if they double him he can chuck it out.
