    God! Losing to the Jazz was bitter, however the Rockets' schedule for the next 10 games isn't all that tough, and 8 of 'em are at home.


    Dec 27 Knicks
    Dec 29 Hornets
    Jan 4 Warriors
    Jan 7 T-Wolves
    Jan 8 @Magic
    Jan 10 @Hawks
    Jan 11 Nuggets
    Jan 13 Celtics
    Jan 15 Suns
    Jan 17 Lakers

    If the Rockets don't go 8-2, i'll be extremely disappointed. the only losses i'de accept during that strech are to Orlando, only because it's a second of a back 2 back, and maybe to the Lakers.

    What do you guys think?

    most likely the Rocks will go 6-4 or 7-3...... 8-2 is not that easy for the Rocks for the time being.... it will takes them a lot more time to be able to make it 8-2...... Rockets are still very inconsistent.....

    The way we are playing we'll be lucky to go 6-4...

    Rockets need to take it one game at a time, not by packs of 10...

    I don't mean to be a pessimist but 5-5. Expect losses against the T-Wolves and Lakers (by then they'll be back on the same page) and it's usually close against the Hornetts. We also tend to have trouble with Stephon Marbury and the Suns plus we play the Celtics who are a pretty good team.

    8-2, 10-0??? There are 7 potentially tough games here. Oh, that's right. The tough ones are the ones the Rox show up for!

    Too early and too inconsistent to make any bold predictions. They still tried to incorporate players into their rotation. Some day they play good and beat good team (that we predict they might lose). Other day we think it should be an easy win and they came out and lose. They still tried to find a consistent rotation and I am not sure each player really know their role on the team yet. I think Rudy still experimenting. Once they know what their role is, I think they will be able to play more consistently. They could go 8-2 or 9-1 or they can go 4-6 and 5-5.
    So I think they should focus on one game at a time rather than look at the schedule to see which game they suppose to win.
