    Shane will have to make shots or let Artest/Wafer jack shots.

    Deke will wag some fingers tonight unless the Adelman hate continues. Hayes might start and Scola might slide in.

    this is terrible.. and i was so looking forward to the game..

    i'll still watch obviously.. but might as well tally this one under the loss column..

    won't get a decent measure of how competitive this team would be in the playoffs.. seeing if they'd actually lose 3 straight games against post-season teams.. without Yao..

    Too bad Yao is sick.....but i think this team can pull together and win this. We will see more fast ball. Man also play White...why not....

    This just in from 610:

    "The Rockets have conceded the game to the Hornets and will come back home to prepare for the Pistons who will be without Rasheed Wallace and Allen Iverson. Though there are rumblings that the Pistons will concede the game to the Rockets as well."

    :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:


    Some of you people SHEESH!!!

    Well you need to able to breath running up and down the court. Too bad he's out. I was so looking forward seeing the whole team play tonight.

    If at minimum Artest doesn't waste possessions free lancing and Shane comes out of his slump they could steal the game tonight.

    this should be like a review from last year when we went 22 without Yao. Should be a piece of cake.

    Deke must play. We need somebody to guard the basket.

    Deke
    Wafer
    Artest
    Scola
    Brooks

    There's our starting lineup right there, to balance out Deke's lack of offense.
    We cannot have Hayes or Battier in the lineup with Deke at the same time.

    So what if Rockets do win tonight?
    Will this make Adelma play Deke some more?
    Will the board split over wheter Yao is Da Force?
    Will Brooks be next Iverson again?

    Keys to victory.

    - Go small and run em off the court!

    - Come out running and gunning and don't let the crowd get into the game from the get go.

    - Start Lowry at the point.

    - Play Brooks at the 2 like Nate Robinson in NY.

    - When Posey comes in bring Battier in. Hopefully they just cancel each other out.

    Starting lineup should look like this.

    Lowry
    Brooks
    Wafer
    Artest
    Scola

    If we have Brooks and Lowry in at the same time and Brooks is able to roam free he'll easily be able to drop 30+ (which is exactly what we need with Yao out) and lead us to victory.
