    Monster game for us. We can't go under .500 again. 25 is here sooner than expected, which is disappointing after what our boys accomplished last season.

    We just need to move the ball, get Dwight involved early(if he's playing...Haven't heard anything else on the NeNe report) and have some fun out there. Snap the losing streak with a balanced attack.

    If Dwight is hurting, the Smithsonian is ready to put in work. He's knocking off the rust from being a caged bird in that disastrous LAC locker room. And Doc thought Smoov was an issue?! Your all-star PF broke his hand over his buddy's face and you signed your son, who's a mediocre talent at best, to an awful contract, presumably to last until you wear out your welcome. /rant :p LOL, I love Doc, but it's nice when Karma hits a team that "didn't focus" on us last year. (Wasn't that the term, or something close? Like, they still didn't give a damn about us, even after we embarrassed them in the playoffs)

    Shut down Dwayne Wade, keep Goran out of the lane and don't let Amare continue to get his second breath.

    I'm most worried about Bosh. He can stretch the floor, and Clint can't defend him. Period. Hopefully, JB uses Josh quite a bit, and TJ at some points. I wouldn't put Dwight on him...we need D12 close to the rim, and Bosh is quicker than him these days. The fouls could become an issue.

    Anyway, I think we'll take this. Miami is feeling TOO good after beating ATL.

    Rockets by 8 with a good showing from James, Trev and Dwight. Marcus lights it up off of the bench.




    ...Hold on...just for a little longer...

    We're doomed. No chance of winning.

    Dragic and Whiteside revenge game 7.0

    They'll combine for 60pts 25rbs 20assists 10blocks.

    Rockets - 101
    Miami - 115

    Hold on for what? 25 really meant something to Leslie?

    25 is probably the percentage of salary he plans to dump between now and the deadline

    He could drop those numbers, and we'd still lose.

    Well... looks like Dwight's out tonight....

    If the Rockets don't come out with some fire tonight, there is something seriously wrong with the mentality and toughness of this team.

    Jury duty dismissed really early, and so I swung by Specs downtown to get a nice bottle of rye to help mitigate the heartache tonight. Come on Rockets! Make these happy drinks not sad b*stard drinks!

    The Navy Seal didn't seem to have too much of have an effect.

    They need a psychiatrist.

    This team is obviously possessed by something.

    The team should've visited a curandero when the team was down here in the RGV.
