Pathetic= Last night

I'm still sitting on an ice pad, my butt is a little sore.

Here are some playoff stats that I got from 82games.com, espn.com and nba.com.

Yao shot almost 86% from the line last year during the playoffs with the following
game 1 12-14
game 2 9-9
game 3 14-16
game 4 4-4
game 5 9-10
game 6 7-9
game 7 11-13
Take away his FREE throws, let alone all the other stuff he brings and the Jazz sweep last years series. I feel that the Jazz will take the series in five, losing one game when Tracy goes off for 41 or so.

If Memo keeps playing the way he has been playing the Jazz could possible sweep. A lot of people are picking this series to go 6-7, and some with the Rockets winning. I know that the Rockets won 22 blah blah blah. I feel that the Jazz have the Rockets number. If the Jazz score 102 points a game they will win every game easily, the Rockets do not have the fire power to outscore the Jazz. The only way the Rockets will win this series is with defense and you know they can't d up the Jazz at home. Maybe I don't know basketball as well as I think I do, but I don't see this series going more than six games at all.
