That means the Rockets is only 0.5 game behind the Spurs. :shock:

This will make the Sunday rematch in San Antonio more interesting, exciting and crucial.

The Rockets might lose both games on the road and they are likely dropping out of the top half of the standings.

I sure hope they prove you WRONG !!! :evil:

Personally I hope they will beat San Antonio Spurs to even the tie-breaker, and lost to Utah Jazz to even the tie-breaker.

Of course if they can win both, the BETTER !!!

I hope they prove me wrong too. But I just think the experience of the Spurs will pay off for them in the end, especially the point guard position. Meanwhile, it's even harder to win in Utah, the Jazz match up well against the Rockets. Yao will have a tough time against Boozer defensively and will get frustrated as usual against Okur on offense. The Jazz will run pick n' roll all night long, the best in the league. It will make you wonder why Brooks can't make passes like D Will when it comes to pick n' roll.

The second round bingo does it for me too.

If they have to meet the Jazz in the later round of playoffs, so be it. But definitely not a good idea to face the Jazz in the first round. The Rockets will have a tough time against a team that matches well against them. Even if they beat them, it will take 7 games. By then, they will drain both physically and mentally for the next round.
