    Statement of intent needed.
    Put the Spurs back in their box and get the playoff run back on the cards.

    We should win this because we play harder and as a team when its a good team but...

    is Scola playing tonight?
    What mode is Lowry going to be (drive or fools gold)?
    Is k-martin shot still off?
    Does Battier still have intangibles?

    We got them on a second half of a back to back..that's not saying much since their the spurs and all. But atleast we have something going in our favor..

    We will more than likely go 4-2 in this homestand... 5-1 or 6-0 is just going to be amazing.. anything below 4-2 is clear disappointment.

    We will lose against SA
    Win against Suns then
    Win against Bobcats
    Lose to celtics
    Kill struggling Jazz
    Kill Golder State.

    However, SA is on a back to back... and we are well rested. We can surprise them if we play perfect game or they come out lazy.

    I am not sure about SA and Boston game at all. We might win 1 of them and win rest = 5-1. If we win all 6, then we are making playoffs for sure.

    i'm sure about about SA, boston i'm worried about. But if we win the first 3, which i really think we will, the boston game will be easier to win because we will be more confident about ourselves

    The Spurs are far, far better than the Rockets: however, this is a "rival" game and anything goes. If Scola is back, the entire team plays out of their minds, the Spurs lose their concentration, the Rockets can win. But everything has to go right for them. Everything!

    I can see a close OT loss to the Spurs, maybe. It really depends on their shooting the 3 ball. Also if the bigs play like they did against the Suns, we lose handily.

    If the Rockets lose against the Spurs, I'd get really scared about the Suns game. Even with them coming off the B2B, I could see Gentry sitting Nash against the Magic to get rest and then playing the Rockets the following day. I also just have a feeling that Brooks will go off since he is coming back to Houston.

    Don't see any chance of beating spurs, but, hey, good to be an underdog sometimes.

    Nice preview of the first round of the playoffs. Rockets win, 105-101.

    I'm not sure but there saying that he is pissed about it especially this late in the season..my guess is as good as yours is that the Spurs want to have some kind of size going into the playoffs.

    Somehow the Rockets pull to within 3 with 8 seconds left and Kyle Lowry hitsa 3 to go to OT. Then who knows what happens

    I really feel like this is a must-win game if the Rockets are to make the playoffs. Statistically we'd still be alive, but losing two in a row at this point will be difficult to come back from.

    Have to say this is a tough one. both teams have moved to the up-tempo play but $purs are winning while we are losing games. keep my finger crossed.

    I'd love to see us beat the Spurs.

    We've been playing well. We're a new combination of players.
    Why not? Lets do it.
