    Yeah I feel for him. You know Josh feels bad for causes this to his friend too. Rockets still had a chance without Howard if Smith or Jones would have shown up at the end. Not over yet.

    D12 is not missing game 2. He wants as ring as much as anyone.

    Questionable is the right call. I'm sure the Rockets don't want the warriors to know much about the injury good or bad.

    There is no doubt in my mind that the Rockets are the better team and we will win the championship this year.

    Rockets keeping their cards close to their chest... I think he will be back.

    With this development on Dwight, I would LOVE for Capela to get some more minutes (more than the 13 minutes he had in Game 1). He has progressed so quickly out there and would build even more chemistry being on the court during the game. There is no substitute for game speed and playoff experience, to me, is invaluable.

    Weather it was post up or not playoff Dwight is a dominant center and mismatch for any team ( he outplayed deandre Jordan ) which was his worst match up imo

    Howard will miss game 2 in my opinion either way. He needs to get 4 days rest and hopefully dominate unless there is some damage in that knee of course.

    I hope Howard's fine. I can't emphasize enough how this guy's been our anchor throughout the playoffs and is/was our ace against GS.

    I honestly don't know how we'd pull it off without him in our line up.

    So we should blame Dwight for getting hit by smith. ( knowing Dwight always get hit by his own players right ? )

    ok...so the Warriors are going to continue preparing for Dwight regardless. That being said, there is just not much they can do with Dwight in the post. Bogut is great and all, but I would suspect he is gonna get a few offensive fouls for his screens tom. Yesterday was a clear example of how much having Dwight wouldve helped. That bounce pass James left for Josh Smith wouldve been a lob at the rim; and a Rockets lead. Dwight wouldve also stopped any and all back door paint runs...The Rockets are in good shape, but they need a more balanced scoring approach.

    Anyone remember how they listed him earlier in the season? I want to say that listing it as an "injury" instead of "bruise"actually means something..

    You're trying to reason with a poster who thinks Toney Douglas is the key to our postseason success.
