    Let's hope the Rockets learn from last night. Up 10 with 3 minutes and you haven't been scoring? Don't hoist up more threes. Take it into the paint, see the ball go in, and get some momentum. Then shoot a three.

    I haven't been keeping up withe the Bulls, but Rondo and Wade in the backcourt? That team will never make it because they don't have the shooting. You can only get away with 2 guys on the court who can't shoot (usually 1 of them is your center) and they SHOULD BE running the PICK AND ROLL together.

    Also, I quickly dismissed the Knicks (no-brainer) because they don't have any shooters.

    Don't even really care after last night. Maybe they'll be pissed and win. Maybe they'll lose. Hard to tell with this team lately. But what I do know is there will be tons of bricks and they'll probably choke away a big lead at some point. Nothing else should be expected.

    Pretty much not counting on Ariza, Gordon or Anderson to have a good shooting night at this point.

    Really need a contribution from someone else but that involves them actually seeing the court.....

    Dekker, Harrell, McDaniels. Hell, I'd rather see Tyler Ennis and Bobby Brown than Brewer at this point.

    I hope Ariza, Harrell, and Brewer go off for 90% of the points in a win. There are some good trades that can be made with the Bulls and it would be a nice audition. Should of happened last night but it is what it is. Rockets 110 Bulls 95

    I started to post this too, but I still really care.

    Last night was one of the franchise's worst losses though.

    I'm not confident we'll win either.

    Yea, I mean, I want them to win, of course. Just have learned that they're not the same team from December. Have adjusted my expectations accordingly. That mojo is gone.

    If December was their peak, then hopefully January was their floor. Maybe the team is really just somewhere in the middle of that.

    Luckily...the Bulls are a mess right now. We should win. Just not counting on it.

    Butler embarasses Ariza. Drops 40+. McDermott 25. Wade 30. Nikola 25. Rockets break last night's record of missed 3s.

    Bulls win 125-100.

    MDA still has 4 timeouts when the game is over.

    I expect the TC to be dead with no energy since the Superbowl is this weekend. Zero home court advantage.

    Regardless of what happened last night. Today should be a comfortable victory on Yao Ming's jersey retirement night. Factor in the collapse, give them some reason take care of business tonight and move on to the rest of SB weekend.

    Ariza scores 20 and everyone forgets how horrible his offense has been 80% of games this season and last ;)

    I don't know... the Yao Ming jersey retirement should have the arena a little more filled and with some more spark. But that traffic around TC is seriously brutal right now. I left real early to get there yesterday and plan to do the same again today.
