    Blowout Rockets win. Pop will rest starters at half time

    Keys to the game

    Just run the usual free flowing offense. DOn't resort to McFail style offense down the stretch

    Please Rockets, no grey uniforms this time. Those are Spurs colors, damnit. We need the ketchup/mustard if we're going to pull this out.

    Rox win. This series was destined for 7. Bench comes alive in 6 and we'll see a kiss of death after the game winning shot! Rox advance! Okay I'll stop with the fairy tale. Rox will barely win tomorrow after giving up a 20 point lead and Reggie Miller will have his knee pads ready in the Spurs locker room in game 7. Game 7 will come down to the wire and Harden wil commit a crucial turnover to end it lol. Go Rox!

    OF COURSE WIN, BUT DON'T JUST WIN, WIN BIGGGGGGGGGGGGGG BABY!

    Rockets 123
    Spurriers 101

    (play Dekker or Harrell at least 10 minutes so we aren't gassed in the 4th if it isn't already a blowout...talking to you MDA)

    The Rockets were quicker on a lot of their interior switches on defense. Harden played incredible post defense against bigger guys. It was obvious he wanted and was able to step up and help ease the pain of losing Nene. The Rockets had every chance to win game 5. That's all you can ask.

    It isn't likely the Spurs will shoot that hot from 3 point land in the first half. It also isn't likely the Spurs will have a minute of time where they keep getting the rebound and are able to be all offense for that time period. It also isn't likely that the Rockets will spend the 2 1/2 of the last five minutes of the game not running anything that even resembles a play offense.

    So that is the good side. Of course, there are dozens of other things that can happen so nothing is guaranteed. The Rockets need to play fired up and never back down.
