    You think the Jazz can score 127?

    If the Jazz win, it'll be more like 95-91. They're a defensive team and any winning they do will be by bogging the crap out of the game.

    Hope Luc is back so we can use Ariza and Luc on Mitchell. They have no one else to consistently beat us but being the Rockets, we usually let a scrub go off for career highs.

    Is Tucker defending Favors? That could be key if they feed him a lot of low post shots. I like Harden on SLO MO JOE. I like Ariza on Mitchell. I like our ability to switch against their lineups.

    If Luc isn’t back, at least ISO Joe will finally be useful against Slo Mo Joe.

    Expect Eric Gordon to have a big series.

    I think CP3 will struggle against their size.

    Game day early Sunday. Harden minimal sleep after leaving strip club at sunrise. Has a horrible hangover and shoots 4-24 and CP3 struggles himself as Rockets fall in Game 1 before winning the next 3 games in a row and dropping one more. Rockets in 6.

    No excuse to not dominate this one. The Jazz are practically on a B2B. DO NOT pull another Clippers Game 1!

    Man, it will be really nice to have Luc back but we can't count on that.

    As far as CP3 -- I expect his mid-range to be the difference in this series. He will get nothing at the rim, and they're going to let Gobert handle everything inside the paint.

    I can't wait for this game! I hope our guys keep their cool, because the way Utah and OKC were fighting this could get ugly. They seem to like to instigate the BS.

    Yep, better sharpen up that 3-ball and mid range shot, inefficient as it may be.

    You have to start a sweep by winning, so do that. Also, Juck the Fazzholes.

    I can see why you guys are so concerned, since the Jazz totally dominated us during the regular season:

    Nov 5 - home - Rox win by 27
    Dec 7 - Utah - Rox win by 11
    Dec 18 - home - Rox win by 21
    Feb 26 - Utah - Rox win by 11

    Finally, we can get our playoff rematch. I still hate Matt Harping, Ak47, Okur & Boozer.

    Seriously, with Luc coming back, we'll be at full strength. Utah will be lucky to win a game in this series.
