Rockets vs Jazz,
when you learn to spell "Darren" correctly we'll pronounce it that way
You fricken fetchers. Deron didn't ever complain about Treysee not pronouncing his name right....WE DID. HIS FANS! Don't go ragging on Deron for something he didn't say. Oh and by the way, Rockets suck.Have a nice day.
Then we'll rag on you guys for getting your purple Jazz panties in a bunch because T-Mac didn't pronounce his name right. See in 7.
You weren't at the game CBJ!! I clearly heard him tell TMac how to pronounce his name and then he told him that if he said it wrong again he'd miss another shot.
What the? Where were you sitting? front row joe?That or you have go go gadget ears...If he said it then I take my previous comment back. But for real...pompous cooment on McGrady's part.
I'm just messing with you. But I did give Vince Young a high five last night, so that was cool
Do you realize the Jazz playoff record after humiliating losses like these? The Rockets would have been better off winning by 5, trust me!
I noted earlier concerning the Jazz record in the playoffs after blowout losses in the playoffs. So I thought I would provide a little history lesson...1993-94 vs San AntonioGame 1 4/28/94 Jazz89 SA106Game 2 4/30/94 Jazz96 SA84Jazz win series!1994-95 vs Houston Game 2 4/29/95 Jazz126 Rckts140Game 3 5/03/95 Jazz95 Rckts821996-97 vs ChicagoGame 2 6/04/97 Jazz85 Bulls97Game 3 6/06/97 Jazz104 Bulls931996-97 vs LA LakersGame 3 5/08/97 Jazz84 LA104Game 4 5/10/97 Jazz110 LA951997-98 vs San AntonioGame 3 5/09/98 Jazz64 SA86Game 4 5/10/98 Jazz82 SA731997-98 vs HoustonGame 1 4/23/98 Jazz90 Rckts103Game 2 4/25/98 Jazz105 Rckts902006-07 vs Golden StateGame 3 5/11/07 Jazz105 GS125Game 4 5/13/07 Jazz115 GS1012007-08 vs HoustonGame 5 4/29/08 Jazz69 Rckts95Game 6 5/2/08 Jazz?

If I recall...in 1994 Utah eventually its ass beat by Houston.in 1995 Houston did the trick again.in 1997, Chicago had the eventual pleasure.in 1998, Chicago again. Ask Bryon Russell, he remembers.in 2007, San Antonio beat you down and it wasn't close.Yeah, that was a fun history lesson! Let's do that again sometime!
Props to Sterica for throwing down some serious numbers.I agree that the Jazzers are preparing a J-Slo style beat down on Friday. Don't forget your knee pads Rockets...We know you won't. Dave did the Anonymous Jazz troll scare you out of accepting anonymous comments?
Yeah, I got bored of having to delete and censor. I hate censorship so much, but lines had to be drawn somewhere.Besides, how hard is it to get a google ID and a fake name?
For some Jazz fans? Probably more difficult than you think.
Are you saying I need to post a "your IQ must be this high to enter the blog" disclaimer?
Only one team has delivered a beatdown in this series, and it wasn't Utah.We've lost 3 of 5 at 60% of our starting roster. We've won 2 of 3 with 80% of it. The Jazz is having to work pretty hard to beat Houston without Yao. I can't imagine we'd be having the same trouble if the Jazz were without Boozer or Williams.Also, I'm proposing a new name for A Kirelenko. AK-47 is too macho and tough.Here are a couple of suggestions:The HeliflopterCrybabyThe Weeping Stick3rd Ugliest Jazz ManPlease add your own.

ok...so every year i believe....i put my heart on my line for the rockets and they lose.....and im afraid to do it this time....BUT I CANT HELP IT!!! I BELIEVE!!!! I REALLY DO BELIEVE!!!!
It’s funny to see Mormon land attempt to talk smack. It’s the equivalent to watching Steve Martin try to act like a brotha. You don't quite pull it off. Allow me to clue you in on something, Jazz fan, your backs are against the wall and your best player is doing EXACTLY the thing you have been harping on T-Mac about for this entire series. Funny how that has backfired, tards. Oh, and don't get me started on your brand of basketball. Dirtdre Kirefloppo and Memet Flopkur out front told us that. Lets be clear on this, nobody likes Utah but Utah. They are an unappealing team. They are the butterscotch candy that is always the only left uneaten in the candy dish. Every time I think of the Utah Jazz, I am always sitting on the pooper. Coincidence? I think not.
It's obvious to me that Houston has HOMER glasses on. How in the world can you not see that Luis Scola is just as big of a flopper and menace as any player in a Jazz uniform. I am not going to deny that Andre flops on occasion and I won't deny that we play physical basketball. You have a few scrappers on your team as well and I am sure you love it when they work hard, but to bitch and moan that we play to physical and flop is ubsurd. How do you think you won game 5. Your guys maned up and played physical. You beat us at our game but for some reason you all cried about it for the first 4 games but it's ok when you do it.
The history lesson wasnt saying the Jazz won all those series, but simply pointing out their record after blowout losses! Guess what, we only need one game! This game happens to fall after a blowout loss. Like I mentioned earlier, the Rockets would have faired better winning by 3-7 points. On another note, your 43-48 veteran player (mutumbo) has guaranteed a game 7. Dumb!
Only a doesn't-listen-to-Jazz fan would confuse a prediction like "we're not coming back" with something as innocuous as saying that the series will reach seven games. If slights like that are what your team needs to get fired up, then you're no better than the Patriots and their "who dissed us today" attitude.
@ your 43-48 veteran player Come on now, it's more like 52-57
OOOO, can I play. Since we're setting the cutoff that a Jazz "blowout" is 12 points as sterica said, let's look at some other Jazz blowouts and the following games in the playoffs during the same timeframe. For some reason, these were left out of the earlier post:2006-2007 vs San Antonio Western Conference FinalsGame 4 SA 91 Utah 79Game 5 SA 109 Utah 842002-2003 vs Sacramento Western Conference First RoundGame 4 Sac 99 Utah 82Game 5 Sac 111 Utah 912000-2001 vs Dallas Western Conference First RoundGame 4 Dallas 107 Utah 77Game 5 Dallas 84 Utah 831999-2000 vs Portland Western Conference SemifinalsGame 1 Port 94 Utah 75Game 2 Port 103 Utah 85Game 3 Port 103 Utah 84(Note: Utah did beat Portland 88-85 in Game 4 before losing in Game 5)(Note2: In the first round, Utah lost Game 3 to Seattle by 11 and then lost again in Game 4 by 11 before winning in Game 5, doesn't fall under 12 point rule though)1998-1999 vs Portland in Western Conference SemifinalsGame 6 Portland 92 Utah 80No game 7(Note: Oops this doesn't count, how's this get in here)(Note2: In the first round the Jazz lost by 11 to the Kings in Game 2 and came back the next game and lost by 3. Again, doesn't count)1997-1998 vs Chicago NBA FinalsGame 3 Chicago 96 Utah 54 (ouch)Game 4 Chicago 86 Utah 821996-1997 vs Houston Western Conference FinalsGame 3 Houston 118 Utah 100Game 4 Houston 95 Utah 921995-1996 vs. Seattle Western Conference FinalsGame 1 Seattle 102 Utah 72Game 2 Seattle 91 Utah 871994-1995 vs Houston Western Conference First RoundGame 4 Houston 123 Utah 106Game 5 Houston 95 Utah 91(Note: This is my favorite one since sterica used Game 2 and Game 3 earlier. Hey, guess where Game 5 of this series was?)1993-1994 vs Houston Western Conference FinalsGame 1 Houston 100 Utah 88Game 2 Houston 104 Utah 99Um, so basically, after blowout losses, the Jazz are 7-10. Wow, scary. If you throw in 11 point losses counting as blowouts, the Jazz are 7-13. Wow, impressive. Man, the Rockets should be quaking right now.
Correction to last post:The Jazz would be 7-12 if you count games after losses by 11 points or more in the playoffs since 1993-1994, not 7-13 as the previous post suggests. I apologize.
