    Deke can defend that Chandler lob way better than Yao could. Just sayin...

    :D I like your spin.

    Thanks for the update. Hopefully Scola and Landry can score in the post, and the jump-shooting is on tonight.

    I would put in a line up of Scola, Landry, Artest, Lowry, and Brooks and try to RUN RUN RUN.

    Artest would take 35 crazy shots, and the rockets may win the games by Deke's great defensive effort and rebound. You never know, anything can happen.

    Can't afford to have Shane in there much if he is not going to be a threat to score.

    Get Wafer some more minutes, we need his offense.

    Play outside in....

    Like watching a train wreck. You want to turn your head, but can't.

    let's see if ron really can carry a team (even without yao, we have some talented pieces). games like these are how he's going to show he deserves that big contract.

    we beat new orleans last yr without yao. we can do it again.
