    How did the Celtics beat them last year. They banged them, particularly Gasol. If we could put them on the floor hard everytime we have to foul on shooting then we will have a good chance. Chuck Hayes best contribution is to take it hard to Gasol and make them feel pain everytime they want to go post. Since we are now considered a blue collar team use our bodies and make them pay.

    Like all Rocket games it will come down to the fourth quarter and how well the Rockets can play will decide the team's fate. Rockets need a good lead heading into the fourth. I will like a 7 to 8 pt lead.

    it seemed like Houston played well int he first half and LA very badly, yet we were only up 3, so that may be a reason to worry...but looking at the boxscore, we shot poorly as well (42%), and got outrebounded by 6....so we have just as much room for improvement as LA.

    Brooks needs to be more aggressive

    Landry is horrible in D, give those mins to Hayes if possible

    Scola needs to grab more rebounds when Yao is coming over to double Kobe

    What did Artest say at halftime? What did Barkley say about Battier?

    We gotta contral the boards better. We are out rebound 19-25. Have to play with more intensity in the second half. Go Rockets!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm just waiting for the Lakers to put a run on us in the 2nd half. I wish I was more confident in the Rockets :(

    Scola is doing more than enough on the boards. Let's pick on someone else. :D

    21st. I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt but enough is enough on Barkley.

    I never knew Gasol had mobility problems. They have different problems. Both can play soft at times though.

    4th quarter.


    All this other stuff (i.e.) the first 3 quarters, are just smokescreen.

    4th quarter.
    Stop #24.

    Thats basically it, in my opinion.
