    It's simply unbelievable. No Yao,no Deke,no McGrady. WOW! I'm very proud of these guys.
    Aaron is no PG and he can hardly defend anyone.Battier is not likely to ever get so many points in a playoff game and Ron was all over the place. We had no business in winning this one,but we pulled it out. Hayes is a great defender.
    It's understandable to get excited, we are not likely to replicate this. We do have every reason to feel very proud of our team.
    I would hate to see Yao retire or be unable to succeed in the NBA after all what he has gone through,but this could be a glimpse of what a future Houston Rockets team might look like with additional talent.

    Why not? We've already seen he can find the open man downfield, and I bet he can take a hit better than Schaub. ;)

    With the momentum and this team's firey emotion and heart, we need Artest's veteran leadership and composure more than ever. He's gotta be vocal, composed and help maintain perspective through the rest of the series.
