    Down 3 with 32 seconds to go and a 8 second shot clock differential, all we have to do is get a stop and it is a one possession game. By intentionally fouling, we have to have them miss TWO freethrows to even have a shot at tying. We no longer control our own fate and as long as the Bulls make freethrows it is over. I don't think I have ever seen an intentional foul like this when it is still a ONE possession game with time to go.

    So my little question is... WTF WAS HE THINKING?!?!?!?!?!!?!?

    Go get laid, you'll get more out of it than you are right now. That's my advice. I think I'm about to go follow it.

    No, the players are responsible. Not saying we would have won, but how about actually looking at the scoreboard and seeing we need some 3's? Would that be too much trouble to ask of NBA players

    Are you **** kidding me?!

    Get a stop. And go for a three.

    You foul, and the game is over as long as they make ONE freethrow.

    The players blew the game... Not much execution and too many turnovers...

    could have gone in the game thread/analyis...not that bad of a move when you consider how deadly rose and co had been and their defense. He extended the game and gave them more opportunities to win.

    Horrible move to foul. You place confidence in your D and try to get the stop. That decision to foul made it impossible to come back.

    I have no idea why he decided to foul. Make a stop and get the ball back, seems like the no brainer decision.

    We were out-rebounded by 8, and Hill (who was getting almost a rebound per minute) only plays 5 minutes. Extremely questionable decision by Adelman.

    Why ask why?

    Rick loves to play players he trust. Miller has been playing for Rick for so many years. Its obvious.

    Noah is a career 60% FT shooter. Why he didn't hack-a-Asik in the 5 minutes preceding I have no answer for.

    I agree it was a mistake to start fouling with 32 seconds left down by 3. Can't remember the last time I've seen a coach make that decision. Big miscalculation by Adelman for not trying to get a stop and then having Kevin Martin or Brad Miller attempt a 3-pointer.

    Call me crazy, but.... ( lol you guys will probably call me crazy ) there could be a possibility that the Rockets are going to tank this year, and attempt to one of the great young players that are coming out in this years draft. But its speculation, but in all honesty if i were a gm or an owner of a franchise. I would be very intrigued by the young crop of players coming out in the 2011 draft. But yes Adelman could be in tank mode.
