    I'm iffy about this game... I don't know if Odom will be available.. Kobe MIGHT go off.. (pff why did I say might? He will) and the Lakers are probably so embarrassed by that loss in game 4 that they might just come out with a blowout. I hope nothing like that happens, but I still think we have a good shot to win because of our heart, hustle, and willingness. Go ROCKETS, Prove all the doubters wrong.. BEAT LA! BEAT LA! :D

    Going to be a tough one. Lakers at home, and following the thrashing they took Sunday.

    I'll be optimistic though and hope for the best.

    Go Rockets!

    I still believe, Rockets in 7.

    Continue to play hard and play right. Hopefully the good shots will fall and the Rockets can keep the Lakers off the boards.

    If they keep playing defense with Chuck shutting down Pau and keep playing confident on offense we will win.

    My message to AB and Shane: keep shooting.
    My message to Ron: calm down, stay within the offense and keep shooting. My message to Wafer: don't let ****-a-b**** get in your head, stop going 1 on 4 and pass more.
    My message to Cook & White: keep the bench warm
    My message to Landry: do what you did in game 2
    My message to Scola: be more aggresive and make Odom your biatch
    My message to Lowry: run like the wind baby

    Chuck will lead us, just watch the playoff introduction video ;)

    Isn't it ironic that most footage in the video is against Portland and LA (Wafer's part, Shane's part, Yao's block at the end, AB's alley-oop)

    I won't make my prediction til tomorrow, but folks...

    Expect a game 6 rout by the Rockets if our boys win tomorrow...period.

    Lakers are far too weak mentally to recover from a loss like game 5 could be.

    Keys to winning the game

    -Take there crowd out of the game
    -Stop Gasol
    -Out-hustle them in everyway possible
    -Hit your 3's.

    This is our only hope to win the game.

    I won't jinx anything.. but I am anxious to watch this one.

    I will say this; I hope the Lakers lose the series and Kobe rethinks his Lakers career and decides to demand a trade to Houston..
