Hey! Ya Gotta Stop This Butt-Kicking!!


InterDude Battle 1 about as much of a "battle" as the France-Germany battle from WWII. For one night at least, Dirk was very French.

It was clear in the fourth quarter, when the Mavericks threw in the towel down by 16, that the Rockets started launching threes to try and match a certain Game 7 from two years ago. Unfortunately, even with Yao in the game while up 30, the Rockets fell 10 points short.

Yuck, that box score was ugly. First I saw Jason Terry only scored 1 point(!), then I saw the Mavs allowed Skip To My Lou to put up 14 pts, 8 reb, 12 ast!

Which led Weitao to proclaim that he told me that Rafer Alston is going to have a breakout year. I reminded Weitao that Rafer didn't get hot until fourth-quarter garbage time, when the Rockets already led by 17. Weitao also proclaimed that he's concerned about how T-Mac is going to feel now that it's "obvious" he's second fiddle to Yao. The young Asian is excited about his 1-1 Rockets, you gotta give him that! We'll see how he feels after they wrap up their 4-games-in-5-nights stretch. As I reminded him, if early starts meant something, we'd be looking at a Jazz/Lakers conference finals!

And don't forget the Sixers would be waiting for the winner!
