It seems he's fallen into a bad habit these last few games of picking up two early fouls, but he's been able to play through them. I don't have NBA TV so I don't know if the fouls were legit or not.

I don't have NBATV either :(, forced to only listen to the game. It's free on NBATV if you didn't know. :wink:

It hasn't been much a problem IMO. Last time he fouled out was the first game of December and since then he's had only one game with 5 fouls.

That is. Every night we need guys to step up, is appears like tonight will be Head. Lets wait and see also if AB0 has something to bring to the table tonight.

31 pts after the 1st period - you gotta like that but it should have been about 12 pts lead. But ok, we need to be more agressive defensivly, we cannot get in the foul trouble like we did in that quater.

On the offensive end, go to the basket, make layups, find open shooter, draw fouls. Just stay agressive.

Good quarter. But a run is coming. Wiz have actually played better without Arenas b/c other guys have stepped up. We just need consistent offense at this point b/c there is noway the Wiz should stop us from scoring as long we don't settle for jumpers.

The Rockets are the best at that. No doubt, they can lose EVEY lead, doesn't matter, really.

Now tell me how bad is that? Yao already 3 turnovers in that quater. THEY CALL NO FOULD WHEN BROOKS DRIVES. And they call a freakin' puchin' foul on Scola? Are you serious? The refs already know who wins the game.

Come on Rockets !

we're playing ok overall. Rafer with a really nice game so far, and everyone else chipping in. Yao a little sub-standard, but making it hard for them on defense, and boxing out their big rebounders well.

Main impression is that the Wizards are either overrated from playing in the East, or are having a bad game ...

You see what happens when we are agressive. That makes open shoots for Rafer, Yao, Luther. I only tought Brooks and Bonzi should drive a lot more often.

Only the refs are really kiddin' with their calls. They're just kiddin'. The do not allow us play any defense, it's sad and we still win by 9.

I hope we win
