Do you guys think the Rockets can come back from being 14-29 about 2 weeks ago to 22-30, now winning 7 of their last 8, and get back into playoff contention? I think they can battle it out and make the playoffs. Your guys' thoughts?

Rock on man. I told you guys that we will start winning games again once T-Mac and Yao are healthy and getting back into their groves. If we can keep this up and our main guys stay healthy, then we could be on a playoff run.

If they can somehow manage to get the number 6 seed which is currently occupied by the Hornets, and things stay the way they are seeding wise, we would match up with the Nuggets in the 1st round. I think that can be a very very winable series.

I think so, I like your team a lot. The key was getting everything back healthy, Tmac at 100%, and obviously getting Yao back is huge. You've got some 3 point shooters to go with a top 5 player at the forward and center position.

We are playing against the high powered offense, but I have enough faith in my boys that we can pull out a hard win. Yao, Alston and T-Mac will be the key for us tonight and our defense has to stop Nash from being Nash.

I guess you haven't watched Alston in the past ten games. He started to really improve his game when Yao came back from his injury.

Prime

We are playing patheic against the Suns. :rolleyes2


They double up on Yao everytime he gets the ball, so he passes it. We aren't defending the 3 pointer and they are shooting 3's left and right. We are letting Nash controling the whole game and are guys can't get opened to shoot. I have a feeling this will be a long night.

Im sorry.


I'm sorry by how my team is letting the Suns hit so many 3 pointers. They are at 10-17 right now from the 3, while we are 3-13 from it. Yao is being shutdown completly. He has ZERO points and ZERO rebounds. T-Mac and Swift are the only ones that are scoring the points. Hopefully this patheic game will teach the players how to play defense against a high powered offense next time.

First to respond to Budd. Alston is playing really well recently and hes doing a great job sharing the ball.

2nd off...yes they can make the 6th seed. They are only 5 games behind Lakers and 6 behind the Hornets...not too difficult to wrap up the 6th seed

3rd off the rockets are FLAT right now. They cant defend, get open, score, rebound, or anything positive. This game hopefully will be a wakeup call for them and its alright because they will have the whooooole Allstar break to relax and think about it. Theyve got a tough 29 games after tonight left...

The Rockets are only going to get dusted even if they by some miracle get into the second round. Even the most optimistic fan cant think they can beat the Suns, Spurs, or Mavs. So why would you want your team to make the playoffs? Might as well join the lottery and hope for a high pick.

Because thats not the mentality we want our players to have. We want to win and we want to win now. Its gonna build momentum for next year and it will also show who we want to be here next year. You never wanna tank the season especially when you have two great players on your team. You never saw shaq and kobe quit. Why should Tmac and Yao?

This just in...Steve Nash has just recieved a warning from the NBA because of his repeated offenses. The NBA leauge and David Stern have reportedly received many complaints of how disgusting and gross it is for Nash to lick his fingers, wipe it off on his butt, touch the ball, and lick his fingers again. The ball is now a danger for the players in the NBA and it has caused quite a commotion. Even Rockets' Superstar Tracy McGrady spoke out on this issue.

"Yeah i took myself out of the game tonight. I couldn't take it anymore...All the licking and touching, man it was just getting to me. I think the whole team feels this way and thats the reason why we just quit playing."

As for Nash, we will see if this will change his habits. He has been warned before but he has yet to change his disgusting ways.

A Shaq led team has always been in contention for the title. Face it, you have two soft players. A center who takes fade-away jumpers and a SF who prefers to take long threes than go to the basket. Neither goes to the line like a superstar is expected to do b/c they avoid rather than initiate contact.

They made the TMac deal b/c Yao was supposed to develope into a dominant player, but its not gonna happen. The supporting cast isnt enough for them to compete for a title and its all locked up for the next 4 yrs.

Maybe if Yao learned how to lick his fingers he wouldnt have been completely removed from the game...Dont be jealous just because your team is suckin it up right now and got utterly embarassed last night by a superior team.

We just sucked last night against the #1 rated offensive team. We let them hit the 3's and T-Mac didn't do anything for us after the 1st quarter was over. I do admit we are a crappy team this year and our big reason for that is because of injuries. We have been playing quite a few of 12 guys and we couldn't score in the high 80's. We have improve alot with Yao and T-mac healthy and back and not every team will do great every game. I do find it pretyt odd that we win a game by 30 points two days ago and then we lose a game by 30 points just last night. I think that we fit in nicely with the label of weather. You won't know if we are hot or cold.

Bro its a joke...I know the rockets are not comparable to the Suns,they cant even match up against them but not many teams can. Shaq couldnt do much vs the suns either so dont get smart about yao. Im not jelous i know they are a great team and i knew the rockets were going to get beaten i just didnt think it would be in such an embarassing fashion. But the rockets are 16-7 when both Tmac and Yao play so thats also saying something. Tracy Mcgrady is one of the biggest threats in the game. He could go 2-20 through 3 Q and reel off 20 pts in the 4th

He did have more then 7 points. He had 36 points total in the game. The best player in the game didn't get it. James got it because he was the best player on the winning team, not the best player in game.

Ace he means that since the West lost...Tmac needed more than just 7 to edge lebron out for mvp. Maybe 10-12 would have sealed the deal. like if Tmac had 40 to Lebrons 29...i think Tracy would have had it.

We will be without T-mac for a few games because of the death of his fiancée's mother. I know that this is a really hard time for him and his face shows it everynight. I will keep his the family in my prayers and hope they can make it through this.


Hopefully the rest of our guys can come up strong and beat the Warriors tonight.

Finally!


We actually WON a game without T-Mac tonight. This was our first win without him and it was a close game right at the end. Yao stepped up his game with 22 points and 21 boards. All of our starters scored double digit points and even Head had a good game. It's kind of a shocker that Head actually shot well because most of the time he doesn't.

They really need to get a revamped bench and maybe a new starter or two. I have a feeling Wesley is gonna be somewhere else next year. Rafer is strugglin as well as Tracy. We really need to pull it together and at least CONTEND with the powerhouses of the nba and not just turn over after being up by 9 and end up losing by 17. Thats rediculous.

We have one hell of a sch ahead of us, but I'm not giving up the playoff hope. Alston has been doing good, it's just that he had a off game tonight. I hate to see this, but I doubt we will be seeing the real T-Mac at all for the rest of the season. He's family problems is really killing him and I don't see him pulling it all together any time soon. Hopefully in the offseason we can get a good 2 guard and a reampe bench with better shooters.

Well this game sure as a hell of alot better then Wednesday game. I figured that the Nuggets would be better then that after that big win against the Pistons. T-Mac shooting was good and he actually went 4-8 at the 3 point range. One thing that we deeply need help at is our guards and power foward. Alston and Wesley can't shoot anymore and Howard has bad games and some good games. Yao was just two boards away from having yet another double-double. It was a nice win for us overall.

Bad news......T-Mac missed because of back pains once again.



Good news........we beat the T-Wolves with Yao leading the way with 30 points and 13 boards.


Had a bad 1st quarter, but started to step it up after that. We kept the Wolves with like 5 points in the 1st half of the 4th quarter, but then they started to come put on us and I was kind of nervous there for a mintue. It was patheic to see them put the ball in the basket every time they start in the last half of the 4th. Our defense seemed like they got worn down and alittle cocky towards the end. A win is a win and I'm happy with it. we play the Pacers tomorow night at our house and I hope that T-mac can be back on the court. But I am starting to feel pretty safe with Yao taking over because he is doing that even with T-Mac on the floor.

Glad to see our defense playing strong in the last minute or so and not letting the Pacers catch on fire. Slowly but surely this team is starting to become Yao's team instead of T-Mac's team. He might not be now, but Yao will be a great center in the leauge for years to come. He has finally came out of his shell and showed some toughness near the basket.

bro Tracy didn't even play in the 2nd half...but to comeback and win after being down by 17 late in the 3rd is impressive. From 14-29 last month to 29-33 now...BIG improvement. Watch out for Houston if they make it:fire:

It's likely. If Yao can continue to dominate and if a few more of our players can step it up, then I wouldn't be suprised if we made it. But the chance of that happening is low because we really don't have a guy (besides Yao) that we can trust each and every game.
