I agree. Houston has "choked" in the past but those Laker, Mavs and Utah teams were better than the rockets or had clear advantages (injuries, home court, refs etc)

A meltdown in this series would be an order of magnitude greater than anything else we've seen. Houston wouldn't have to choke a little, they'd have to choke big time multiple times to lose it

Houston simply has too many matchup advantages and the edge on defense. If they lost this... it'd be a serious condemnation of Yao and the team. I think it's extremely unlikely that they'd lose. Somewhere on the order of LA losing to Utah. Houston is that much better if you look at the pieces than Portland

the key is the rockets got a split and now go back to houston. if yao plays aggressive in his "house" then we will be up 3-1 going back to portland; if he plays sub-par like tonight, then see you next year.

It's all on Yao Ming, does he WANT it. He says he does but I am not convinced. In game 1 he played like he wanted it and got the job done. In game 2 he played like he didn't want it and the Rockets loss. Which Yao is going to show up in games 3 and 4?
