    Since the 2 game losing-streak, the moods been shifting a little as a Rockets fan.. I'd figure I lighten up the mood a little bit with talks about your personal favorite Rockets game of this young season.. A game where it's non-stop excitement/ on cloud 9.. I think my pick would be the Milwaukee game where the 2nd half was just a complete collapse for the Bucks, embarrassed on both ends of the floor/ our back-court going nuts and that Delfino swagger dunk sealed the deal... Lots of great games this year for our young squad, what's yours???? I'd also like to add the Rockets/lakers thread two games ago, nothing but comedy gold, I loved it!!!:grin:

    XMAS and Knicks games were probably the better ones.

    Good idea to make something good out of all the negative people always spreading. Stop hatin on your own team!

    1) Running the Knicks off the court at TC - I was there!

    2) Beating the Knicks at MSG on national TV, handing them their 1st home loss of the season (and opened the floodgate).

    3) Beating the Bulls on Christmas day on national TV, handing them their 1st xmas loss in I don't know how long.

    Dec. 22nd Rockets vs Grizzles Love the way we defended Z-Bo. Parsons holding Gay to just 6 points. 7 Rockets scoring in double figures.

    Oh yeah, and this dunk!

    Miami at Houston

    It showed that our team could go toe to toe against the defending champs.

    Harden's career high in the second game of the season vs ATL. At the time he was the talk of the entire NBA.

    Agree on this one. The Hack-a-Dwight was hilarious and awesome.

    Yes, the Lakers game at the beginning of December was crazy fun to watch. 101 FG tries and we earned 31 shots at the charity stripe... we attempted a mind blowing 267 points that night, all in regulation time. Greg Smith had an awesome game, and Hack-a-Dwight was a laugh a minute.

    YES.

    I was at this game. There were many, many Laker fans sitting around us, talking trash. I didn't see a single Laker jersey that wasn't 24. So all these fake fans start quieting down when Greg Smith took over like a bawse. The looks on their faces when we came back to win was priceless.

    The best part though, was the Laker fans we saw taking off their gear in shame while they were leaving the stadium. How sweet it is.

    Opener in Detroit

    Harden exploded and got me crazy pumped for the next 6 years of him.

    It may not be that much fun to watch a close loss. But this is the first big confidence booster for our young squad after three straight losses.

    I have recorded it as a milestone.
