    I can't believe that

    yao was the whole season,

    rox had an incredible 22 strike,

    the two rookies played so well, and

    we are playing Jazzs in the first round again,
    with home advantage again.

    Shall we take a guess of the result? :D

    If it does go to 7 games, I don't see the Jazz pulling out another game 7 on the road.

    It won't be easy, but I believe.

    Rockets in 6.

    its possible to have 10 poll options


    I call officially Rockets in 5 but the way TMAC loves Utah, might be a sweep.

    i'm pretty pessimistic about tis matchup. i think they are too big inside for our guys to handle.

    it's nice that they suck on the road, so hopefully it can be a close series, but inevitably "he who controls the glass controls the game."

    we MUST win the first 2 games at home to have any chance. yes, we won last yr too, but i believe adelman will make a difference offensively when we struggle.

    Rockets better win all the home games cause they aren't going to win in Utah. However, if they can win one there the series is over.

    So what happened last year?

    I fear a De Ja Vu this year. Rockets won't make it past the 1st round, yet again.

    TMAC will be traded.

    I thought last yr we would win, we did not.

    this yr b/c yao is out(even though he does not match up well with boozer/okur) I fear a loss, so maybe we will win.

    they don't have giricheck..sp, nor fisher, so that helps right. Now we have Scola, and Landry and we can sprinkle in a bit of novak,brooks,mike harris and with rafer coming to play after 2 games..........we win.

    I still think spurs, Jazz, pheonix are the best in WC as the same of last year. So Rockets still has big chance to be the 1st round outer.

    By the way, I saw Yao on SF airport yesterday. I can't believe it that it looked like he traveled himself! He's still used walk helper.
