    GAME 1
    PHX 130
    HOU 108

    GAME 2
    PHX 118
    HOU 94

    I think we can come back and win this series. We just need to hang in there and feed Hakeem.

    Never forget.

    1995, Rockets was a better team. 2019 is not the case. So hopefully we can make it.

    We should have definitely traded Hakeem for Zion after Game 2

    This team does not have the heart of a Champion.

    I am old enough to know that Suns. (19 at the time)

    Really, Suns and this Warriors.

    Most didnt think that 6th seeded team could pull it off either.

    We can win 4 of 5.

    You mean 2 of last 4. Last year was a fraud. NBA already admitted robbing 100 points nearly from the Rockets.

    So yeah.

    If we show some effort defensively then we have a chance...

    We could be up 2-0...a made shot here, a ball bounce here, these teams are close.

    Me too. I was living in the Phoenix suburbs and was a huge Suns fan at the time. I occasionally pull up KJ highlights just to reminisce. I hadn't thought about Joe Klein in twenty years, but he did a pretty good job defending Hakeem if I remember right. Not good enough obviously...

    Cassell and Horry gave me a minor case of PTSD. I'm not sure I'm over it. God I hated them. I'm not sure that my young self could ever forgive me for adopting the Rockets either, but here I am.

    Don't be ridiculous. Olajuwon isn't walking through that door. Not today, not tomorrow, not ever again.

    That suns was very good with Barkley, KJ, Dan, Mullin, but com’on now :D

    Glad you converted. KJ was one of my favorite too Loved Barkley player (not the commentator). Sam C is sort like the Iggy that can shoot, I bet he was annoying to the Suns fans. Sam was fearless
