It is not surprising for the rockets to lose ground against a team with 3 stars in the crunch time. They have 3 goto options while rockets only rely on Yao and the 3pt shooters. The role players just can't execute in crunch.

Yao undid what he did in the third quarter in the fourth. He straight up got dominated by KG.

Yeah I've had enough with Battier. The most overrated defender in the entire league and a horrible offensive player.

We did fight, we should be 'happy'. It was a good game. Without McGrady, we were down by 20. End we got back - good news. But another close game, it is painful cause we played well but damn we are 15-17. You gotta love the offort, heart, but it is painful.

I only hope Tracy McGrady will be back soon and that strained tendon will not keep him out for long (longer than week)

Sad, sad, sad. We did fight but we lost....Sad

trade everybody else (except tmac/yao) for a 3rd superstar like shawn marion or something. so we can have our own version of big 3

This team is depressing , at least we play well in the 2nd half though.


but u can't really blame them for everything. we went to yao on 2 straight possessions WITHOUT THE DOUBLES and he didn't deliver. kg did.

their superstar beat ours. point blank.

sure the role players should take the blame, but they played good enough to keep us in the game despite yao's ineffectiveness tonight.

what i'm pissed is we played well without tmac AGAIN and only have 2 wins to show for it. it's a shame for the team. they did play their hearts out.

like i said. expecting rockets to stay close up to last 3 min or so. Though i suspect they may not do well in the last 3 min but was hoping I am wrong. Somehow it felt bad when I am right.

we played far above our talent level in this game. im not pissed about this, im pissed about other games. we are really turning the corner these past four games.

Yao sucked, we played well without him and play horrible with him, I don't get why he isn't playing well these past couple of games. He is having some sort of trouble? Morey make some **** trades, get someone in here please.

Adelman needs to be brave enough to bench yao. we were killing them when we went small. scola was playing great.

some stupid TO's are still killing us, which means we don't focus 100% through out the game...getting the pass to Yao in crunchtime is of high risk and they should not do it...there are better options of running pick and rolls and having our guards score
