Another L.

The only reason why we've had previous success against the Rockets is because Harrington had great games guarding Yao and spreading him out to the perimeter.

Plus, of course, we had Baron to break down the defense and had a somewhat personal rivalry with Alston.

What also sucks is that Jack has had a hard time guarding Artest in the past.

If we had Artest on our team I bet he'd start at center against Yao.

I might be crazy, but I like the Rockets a lot more when T-Mac is out and Luther Head starts in his place.

Come on man, with the talent we have.............we should have beat Memphis X2!!!, Chicago, Sacremento, Washington, Knicks.............even the Heat.

Coaching has screwed us in every one of those losses.

Andris should start speaking in the third person.
