Go Rockets!

I was surprised to see a big man get up after a hit like that. Odom literally landed flat on his back from about 6 feet in the air. A basketball court has a minimal amount of give, so when he hit the ground, you know it had to hurt. I hope he gets better so we have another "even" match-up.

Yeah I'm glad we won today but the Rockets really need to cut down on thir 3 point shooting. i mean we were hitting today but we shouldn't shoot all the time we were up by 29 points and the Lakers caught up because of us shooting 3's but like i said the rockets live and die by the 3. Also i seen what happened to Odem that was not pretty now Lakers fans will see how we feel about right now. But i hope his alright and will be prepared for the next couple of games.

too me personally lakers are lazy and their top defender is andrew bynum, ever since his injury occured he not putting too much effort in playing offense defense cuz that stupid knee injury and for kobe he doesnt ball hog like before and he doesnt drive to the rim as much before and bryant needs to do that also they need to step their defense up. if the lakers play like this all series then they are screwed and for odoms back spasams that not good at all. The reason why odom gets to start is that bynum knee if still messed up i mean if bynums knee was healthy to 100 percent i guarantee that the lakers in round one would have had 20 to 40 points leads guaranteed its just the injuries destroy players seriously and last year they did well because of the offense and minor defense their offense as inn the bench was better than now and their defense was through odom and gasol but when finals came they got screwed because they were not as tough and this year they were tough during the season without the injuries and when injuries came they got screwed also this years playoff in round 2 the rockets are getting lucky battier all luck and brooks all luck rockets are garbage without mcgrady. lakers had more injuries than rockets cause most players on court are playing injured

How are the Rockets garbage without McGrady, out of anything were better because if he would have continued to play we wouldn't have won 50 games or gotten out of the first round. I don't even think we would have made it to the playoffs let alone make it past the first round. And also the Lakers had way more injurys than the Rockets are you kidding me. Now im a Rockets fan aswell as I am a Lakers fan and I watch all off their games when ever I can get a chance but honestly the only two people i recall being hurt for the Lakers was Andrew Bynum in the reguar season and Lamar Odem this sunday. The Rockets have had bad injurys all year starting with Battier missing like the first 4 months then Aaron brooks playing hurt like his first 2 weeks in the begining of the season. Then T-mac did that gay sh*t and got hurt for the rest of the season and in the playoffs Mutombo got hurt in the first round and now Yao in the second and Artest was hurt for awhile to so dont even start with the injurys because we have had it rough this year ever year. And also how was Brooks and Battier lucky in game 4 first of i dont believe in luck i believe in hard work and the Rockets worked hard. And also they were open the whole game they was suppose to hit if no one is gaurding them that what should happen. And that was the Lakers fault blame your team and stop making excusses you don't see Rockets fans calling LA lucky when Farmer was killing us in game 3 he just played hard and beat our a$$ and we retalieated without Yao, Deke,
T-mac and with an off Ron Artest its not like the series is over both teams still have a chance.
