Rockets 13-15 at Christmas. There must be a pony around

Rockets 13-15 at Christmas. There must be a pony around here somewhere The Rockets cited all the reasons for losing.


Yao Ming's thumb. Yao's cut face. Tracy McGrady's sore knee. The schedule. The travel. The game time. The Pistons.


Then Rick Adelman said what needed to be said most of all.

"In reality, we'll see when we come back," Adelman said. "We'll see if we
pick it up again."

Maybe the excuses are valid explanations. Maybe not. Maybe they are valid, but the Rockets aren't any good, anyway.


Detroit 94, Rockets 82 did come at the end of a long, hard road, but also
seemed to indicate the difference between the contenders and a wannabe


But if the Rockets want to cite all they believe to have been stacked against them, if they want to believe they were diminished by the schedule and tormented by injuries, there is something they can do.
Prove it.

The schedule returns to normal. There are a few back-to-backs, including one when they return after a four-day break and two practices. But that's life in the NBA.


They have had time to get their offense in order. They will either get McGrady back from his knee issues, or have time to prepare to play without him.

They play three consecutive teams that have beaten them (Memphis, Toronto and Golden State) then go to Boston to face another contender on the road.

之後要連續面對三個今年都曾經打敗火箭的球隊(灰熊、暴龍、勇士),接著要在客場去面對聯盟的另一個霸主--Boston Celtics。

In the past five games, they have won one, and that was against a team
playing its fourth game in five nights.


The Rockets have seemed to make progress, and it was important to begin playing better. They believe they have, that they are ready to win. As Adelman said, "We'll see."


In other words, prove it.


It's time.
