    OH god, another Amare vs Yao match up. I hope the Yao Ming we all love to watch shows up tonight, and not the laughing stock he's been lately.

    RA, TMAC, and YAO all need to step up BIG tonight. We can't expect just Brooks, Scola, and Landry to carry this team.

    Please god, limit the Amare facials on Yao.....Let Yao get some sick blocks, find his range again.

    Good morning ladies and gentlemen, I am Chinese fans have been very concerned about the Rockets, Yao Ming concerned, concerned about McGrady, and we hope to be a friend.

    Don't worry!
    Season has just begun, it will take time, we should believe Adelman, he is a great coach.
    I belive that the Rocket,I belive Adelman,I belive T-mac、Yao and Ron.

    The game is tomorrow.

    What a time for this road trip, probably the worst time for it. We have no chemistry, we don't play as a team.

    Another tough game. I mean, yeah we can beat Suns easily but when we will be playing as good as we can. I still hope it will come soon, but you never know.

    Shaq+Amare against Yao and Scola. 2 great strong big guys against 2 soft guys. I am afraid of that matchup, hopefully we can defend Amare so that he can't score 38 as he used to. Shaq has been amazing too. Yao is obviously better and I hope he can guard him well and he can rebound well. Rebounds will be the KEY.

    Please, more Aaron Brooks because Rafer is just usless and is hurting this team.

    I really hope McGrady, Yao and Ron can finally play well. One thing to remember guys, stay AGRESSIVE, don't take wild jumpers.

    I'm very excited for this game. I'm on vacation in Phoenix right now, so I shall be going to the game thanks to StubHub.

    Look for me in row 2 right behind the announcers. Hopefully AirBull.

    Suns 106

    We need a top notch game on offense from at least 2 of our main 3 guys and our defense has to 10 times better than what we've shown so far to get a win.

    I wouldn't get my hopes up:
    83-101 loss

    I think the Rockets will lose this game. Yao and TMac have been horrible lately and the offense is just stagnant. Not only that, but nobody can match up with Amare. It's going to be a tough night.

    again, offensively we are sucking.

    but defense is no longer our identity as of now. before, we can stay in 80-90 pt games. now if we score those against good teams, we might get destroyed.

    hopefully the team can bounce back. i don't think we can afford another loss.

    Just hope we can keep it within 20. We may be able to beat the scrubs of the league but we haven't shown anything when playing decent teams.

    Normally there are some tidbits of hopefulness around like Yao finding his comfort zone, Tracy or Ron finding their shot, defense, bench, etc..

    But for this game I can only rely on my homerism.

    So, with a doubtful heart: GO ROCKETS!

    I marked all my predicted wins and losses on my rockets pocketbook calander, so far i'm only wrong on Portland, I had them winning. i have them losing this game, but if they win, than they can be 5-3, right back on track with my prediction.. of course at the beginning of the season i thought Yao and Tmac would play much better.

    Mem W1-0
    Dal W2-0
    Ok W3-0
    Bos L3-1
    Por W4-1
    Lac W5 -1
    Lal L5-2
    Phx L5-3
