    I know it hurts to think about it this way but this is how this series is going to play out. There going to win close games at home, the rockets are going to beat them easily in Toyota center. It will come down to us having 4 chances in Oracle arena and winning just one of them.

    It's not about assuming an identity. It's just about the series playing out in similar fashion. That series saw the Jazz consistently build double digit leads at Toyota Center in Games 1, 2, and 5 only to blow them and suffer close losses. Game 5 was especially close. If Chuck Hayes doesn't draw an offensive foul on Derek Fisher in the final seconds, that one probably goes to Utah. But the Jazz finally broke through in Game 7. They built such a huge lead(I think it was 16 or 18 points) that when the Rockets stormed back to go up by 5 in the 4th, they had nothing left in the tank the rest of the way(hence all the offensive rebounds to Utah that essentially won them the game).

    We'll see how the Rockets perform in Games 3 and 4. If they come back home and win both games convincingly, then it really will look like a mirror image of that Utah series. Then we just have to hope that they finally break through in either Game 5 or 7 in Oakland.
