    Swept by the Lakers in the 1st round 1991. Yes I know it was only best of 5 but it should still qualify.

    CH is right stop blaming the coach.

    response to a & b -
    Not McHales fault that the shooters were not hitting wide open shots and missing free throws. Guess what, Lin, Harden, Delfino etc.. all were missing wide open shots. The coach put them in position for success, it's the players responsibility to hit wide open shots and make free throws. You want to place blame? Start with Lin and Harden for all the missed free throws.

    response to c & d & e -
    He put in Delfino to try and create offense when our offense was stalling. Like it or not that combination has been one of the most effective all season and if Delfino is on and hits his shots the Rockets win that game probably going away. Lakers had been out rebounding Houston all night long, even with Asik and Smith in the line-up together early in the game. The Lakers did not suddenly start out rebounding the Rockets just because Delfino was inserted into the line-up.


    response to f -
    If you want to assign blame you need to start with Jeremy Lin and James Harden. They were in position to win the game several times but Jeremy misses wide open 4th quarter threes and free throws as well as dribbing the ball off of his leg out of bounds on the base line. James harden misses wide open 3s and 4th quarter free throws and then lets Meeks free for a base line slam dunk. That is why the Rockets lost the freeking game... because they did not exicute down the stretch, not because the coach did something stupid or wrong.

    Learn something about basketball before b****ing non-stop about the coach who actually did a great job this season.

    The Rockets started the 4th with a 5 point lead, and they led by 2 when Delfino went to the bench.

    Apologist says if you are going to throw out a bunch of numbers, they should at least be within shouting distance of reality.

    Playoffs

    Do you think the Rockets will: win in 4, 5, 6, or 7 games, or do you think they will lose in 4, 5, 6, or 7 games?

    you guys who votes for Rockets wins are delusional, it's going to be a sweep if the thunder wants it, they may still be warming up, won't even try 100% to beat us, make this poll on any sites other than rockets sites, it won't even be a question.

    did you guys see how the team performed the last couple of games at the end of the season? Gosh, with the talent on our team, it would be a miracle if we can win this series....
