    Anticipating the Lakers likely to sit and/or limit Lebron/AD and probably other starters for this game

    Seeing the Rockets beat the Lakers? Even if it happens in a "bubble" at Disney World before computer generated fans, beating the Lakers turns me on. I'll be cheering the Rockets (or moaning in despair), cursing the officials (sure to favor LA), and sending good vibes to the Rockets.

    Make it happen, guys!
    Beat the Lakers!

    I'm rooting for the Rockets too, while other people will be rooting for the game to be over so they can watch what Max and Stephen have to say!

    I'd like the Rockets to beat them with those fools playing, but a win's a win either way.

    the bubble venue has clearly disadvantaged HOU the most of any team thus far. in the past zebras were somewhat tempered by the (even sparse) toycen crowd for half the games. but now they have free reign to carry out silver's mandate however the F they want all game every game
