    I will never forget that game. The Utah fans were all standing there, silently, just watching our deluge of 3-pointers. It was absolutely pure awesome.

    the playoff record before our 19 was 13. that's how you break a record.


    of course our record got topped by the sonics while playing us a year later so that sucked.

    That game was insane, especially the first half. They were lighting them up like crazy. Everyone was bombing away. I think that was also the game that Horry had that sick jam.

    That was the game it all started clicking, imo, to lead to a 2nd championship. When you really for the first time could see what they were capable of.

    Went to game 4 of that series, where Olajuwon and Drexler both scored 40+.

    So, in one series, they posted a 140 point game, they had a game where two players scored 40+ in one game, and they had the Kenny Smith line talked about in this thread.

    Utah had a 41 point 4th, outscored us by 9, and still lost by 14. My GOODNESS.

    How is it possible that in this series there is a game with a 140-126 score and another with a 95-91 score. That's gotta be the biggest difference in scoring between games in a series.

    Well to be fair this was one of the years with the shorter 3pt line

    When you've got five players hitting half or more of their three pointers and you launch 28 of them, hitting 19, breaking 120 points isn't much of a challenge.

    Poor Sam-I-Am, he didn't even get to break a sweat.

    I get that, but then how do you have a 95-91 game sprinkled in there? Just seems kinda odd that you have one game with a combined 266 points and then another game with only 186 points. Your talking a difference of 80 points which means that the 140-126 game had 20 more points per quarter then the 95-91 game.

    One of my top 5 favorite Rockets games to watch. That Utah team was REALLY good (maybe their best ever)...Clutch City days...sigh :p

    Edit: FYI, the 94-95 Jazz shot 51.2% FG for the year. Wow.
