    I think this game will be decisive since we would pass the Jazz for the 9th seed which is crucial. If we want to catch that 8th spot, first we have to secure 9. There's no reason in hoping for 8th when we're stuck in 10-12 all the time. The Rockets better come out blasting!!

    Since the Jazz have size, I hope we will see some Thabeet tonight instead of Brad Miller. This guy can cost us the game! Thabeet should at least be comfortable with what the Rockets want to do with all the practice time they've had.

    The bench is so crucial, I hope Lee can come out of his little slump and Hill keeps his production up. The PF & Center positions are crucial so let's do this.

    Based on remaining schedules it was evident we would pass the Jazz and the Suns at some point. We SHOULD win this game.

    I think that's the expectation, but it's probably a game time decision.

    Honestly though, Hayes and Patterson would be better against Big Gay Al and Favors imo.

    No Stockton, no Malone & Sloan or Hornececk & Bryon/Brian; even Ostertag is gone....could make them likable? .............?




    No, still can't stand the j*zz or Utah or salt lakes or mailmen or men in tight short shorts....

    And I never will!!!!!!!!!!! EVER!!!!!!!!!!

    GIVE NEW ORLEANS THEIR NAME BACK!!!!!!

    THERE IS NOTHING JAZZY ABOUT YOU-TAR !!!!!!



    Sorry about that rant, happens every time we play them.

    Rockets win 133-88, Thabeet blocks 5 shots, Budinger drops 40 & Kirilenko chooses to use his free 'Hall pass' after game to ease his pain.

    Scola is back.

    For them, Millsap and Kirilenko will both be back.

    Starting lineups:

    Lowry/Martin/Bud/Scola (likely)/Hayes
    Harris/Miles/Kirilenko/Millsap/Jefferson

    I feel we will blow them out... We have been killing teams lately at home.

    3 double digit wins in last 5 home games: Pacers by 17, Bobcats and Celtics by 16
    Suns by 2 but it was close only at the end because we took it easy otherwise we were controlling that game.

    Lost to Spurs in a close game.

    Looking at recent performances of both teams, I feel Rocks will win easy.. if they lose, that would be an upset.

    No upsets please! Win against an above .500 team in the same division- is a must. I'm pumped up for this game.


    Scola please get better.

    I read the feedback C.Lee responded about Scola. As Luis drilled a jump hook in practice, Courtney chimed in with 'Looks like the old Luis, he's back..'

    biggest scola fan ever! But I'm happy he is not playing today as I
    'm still having nightmares of him not even attempting to defend the pick roll.

    In must win mode from now til the end of the season.

    Let's hope your balls sustain a horrific injury resulting in the inability to reproduce.

    Was that harsh?
