    You didn't see those words come from me... because it's absolutely false. Do you deny that the Rockets have a pretty decent bench?

    Our offense is very predictable. When we're hitting our shots and rolling, I expect Carlisle to hack-a-Rocket to slow us down and get us out of our rhythm. I can see Dallas stealing a game that way, and them outright winning one. Our team should still be able to win the series, though.

    But, our second round opponent will be trouble. We're doomed against the Spurs, and we have a better chance against the Clippers.

    You actually can win while being predictable, depending on your talent. We just dumped it to Dream. LA just dumped it to Shaq or let Kobe go 1-1. Miami was very predictable the last 4 seasons.

    It's up to Harden and Howard to play like the studs we expected them to be, and others to hit open shots. It's like that for most title teams.

    Mind games to try and get Harden to play differently, to mess up his game? A star player only needs to be near unstoppable on 1 or 2 moves. They key part being near unstoppable not versatile.

    Yep, how else can you explain the continuous disrespect to DM, Coach McHale and the team shown on thei Rocket "fan" forum?

    They are wishing for a first round exit...no doubt about it. The worse the loss, the happier they are...really perverse.

    Looks like Cuban took some lessons from Chandler on Bulletin Board Material

    "I'm the best Small Forward in this series"
    "That is not a very good team"

    Cuban has a good point. Rockets are predictable and McHale is never going to make adjustments in game. That's why we have a chance to lose this series despite being more talented on paper.

    Guys, guys, guys! Seriously! It's Mark F**king Cuban shooting off at the mouth which is what he does. Every time some jackass bleats something negative about the Rockets, folks here experience a collective meltdown. Cuban can spout off all he wants but it won't be his words that beat the Rockets it will have to be his Mavericks on the court. And that ain't happening. One other thing: If as he says that the Rox are so predictable, then why were his Mavs only able to win one game against them?

    Cuban is not going to come out and say he expects his team to lose. Instead, he redirects the conversation to the one clear area Dallas has an advantage, coaching.

    You bet they are. NBA coaches are bamboozled every time Dirk gets the ball on the block and shoots a one-footed fade away. No one can EVER see that coming!

    Funny because the Rockets and Mavs championships were all one dimensional. Give to Dream and Dirk, that worked out fine. Anybody heard of give it to Lebron lately?

    Dwight is ready. Oh and Cuban's a turd.

    If we can stop Rolando Blackman, we have a chance.

    Its true but not true. Worded wrong.

    Rockets Never had a healthy team. No other all-star focuses all the Defense on Harden.

    We got a good team just no one else to really their to help Harden out on an off night. Harden consistency all year to make the Rockets 2nd is MVP

    And overpaid for both.

    I want the Rockets to win this series in the worst way. Really hoping we really put it on these guys.
