It's time, Tracy, to grow some balls and stop playing like a little bitch. You, Mr. McGrady, like so many others in the NBA today, have no heart. Stop making excuses and leave it all on the floor. If you are the "leader" than you take responsibility. Bitch.

No argument here. Even on the "bitch" part.

does the series go 2-2-1-1-1? or is it 2-3-2? if it is the latter, i'm afraid tonight will be the last win for the rockets this season.. if it is the former, i still think it's gonna be the rockets last win tonight haha. i think the jazz are too content with a road victory and will slack tonight. if they win though, here comes a sweep

Houston not looking good at the half.

That was a true playoff battle, but your "leader" needs to remember to play all 48 minutes: 1 4th Q point in 2 games.

The Rockets just can't pull away. Too many bad decisions. I'm not sure they'd even beat the Jazz with Yao, but it would definitely be a tougher series. If the Jazz get game 3, this is 100 percent a sweep.

Have to ask... why does T-Mac disappear in the 4th like that?
I really don't think the Jazz changed their D on him.
So did he just not take as many shots (blame fall on him or Adelman then?)?
Or did he just disappear when the team needs him most?

Just wondering... because you see the "stars" like LeBron & Kobe... and they're exploding in the 4th. Not disappearing.

This is one game that I just can't blame on T-Mac(and he was T-Mac this game, not Tracy). The Jazz didn't change anything because they didn't have to...He had to play too hard, for too long this game.

I really think this series is just coming down to Utah having more depth and being able to go further into their rotation. Our guys just look half dead by the end of the fourth.

It is readily apparent that Houston is in over its head. I don't see one western team Houston could compete with.

Perhaps if they were in the eastern conference they'd have a shot against the Hawks. But after seeing the last two games, I think that would be a stretch.

Can anyone say, OVERRATED? It's time to play golf, Houston.

Jazz fan here. I'm amazed that McGrady hasn't absolutely killed Korver on offense. For crap sakes, this Korver on defense: http://www.basketballjohn.com/2008/04/17/ok-this-has-to-stop/

And yes Kirilenko clearly flopped, but he was also fouled by Scola, who is already a master at the left arm pushoff. I hate flopping as much as anyone (I know that Harping and Okur do it as well as Ginobli or any Euro player in the league) but unfortunately it's part of the game.

Bring out the brooms and bring on the Lakers.
