Who's Your Daddy?!?!

After a furious Lakers' rally from 12 down with less than 2 minutes to go to tie the game; the always-clutch Shane Battier drilled a long triple with 2.5 seconds left from Phil Jackson's lap to nail down a season opening 95-92 win for the Houston Rockets. The three, coming on the heels of chasing Kobe around for 40 minutes, was the 1st game winning shot of Shane's career since his first season in Memphis.
Your move Mavericks!

Two points Dude:

1) Blowing a 13-point lead in the last few minutes to a mediocre West team missing its second-best player is nothing to brag about. Not that I'm not happy to applaud Battier.

2) Given the recent slowdown in activity on the blog, the last thing it needs is incessant NBA talk before it's even November! Both Houston and Dallas, for different reasons, are going to be judged solely on what they do in the playoffs this year. In the meantime, why don't we continue to unite in support of the Cowboys and their journey towards a rematch with the Evil Empire.

But I am disappointed I'll again be unable to use my Mavs/Rockets tickets this year. Except I guess without JB, watching the Rockets just isn't the same.
