    I don't think Hubie has a horse in the race. I think he's getting too old now anyway.

    This thread title made me laugh. Me and my friends were talking about the same exact thing. "There you go! Come on now." To US Rockets fans, it looks like he's always rooting against us, but if you watch other games, Hubie always cheers on the losing team and gives tips especially when the losing team is getting blown out. Teams just happen to always be losing to us this season. Hubie just wants a good game and not a blow out and probably a fan of the underdogs. Though im sure as old school as he is, he probably thinks 3 pt reliant teams are a gimmick. Poor Hubie has to think about any moment could be his last and he has to spend it at a boring Rockets blow out at an empty Toyota Center blasting urban music in his old ears.

    Yeah, I always noticed he seems to go for the team against Houston. Often.

    When was the last time he did a game where we were significant underdogs, and it wasn't just an even matchup or we were favored? We should go back to that game and see how he called it.

    This year. It's unfortunate because the delicate "fans" make us all look bad. They can find a way to be upset about anything.

    Yeah he does it both ways, but Hubie has made me realize I don't actually mind biased color & play by play guys, so long as they're actually doing their job, not simply cheering like a fan, for whichever team.

    Hubie was actually way more complimentary of the Rockets than usual yesterday. I mean, how could he not be after that first half. But he's been far worse than that in previous broadcasts. I'm just glad we don't have to listen to Jon Barry anymore. That dude has a legit beef with this franchise for some odd reason.

    Hubie always blatantly roots for the underdog. I don't think he hates the Rockets per say, but since they're favored in pretty much every game he's always rooted for the other team every time.

    There were a few times when Capela scored where he seemed pleased. But he definitely was rooting for Utah to do good things more.

    On numerous occasions he said "Nice" after the Rockets made a good play. It happened more in the first half before the Rockets blew this open, and the narrative of the game shifted towards "What do the Jazz need to do to get back in this?" Why? Because that's what an impartial audience at home would be thinking.

    I've watched several non-Rocket games and Hubie roots for the underdog every single time.

    Meanwhile, Jazz fans are disgusted with the love that Hubie always gives the Rockets. I guess fans on both sides hear what they want to hear.
