    The Hawks gave the Rockets all they handle before pulling it out. 21 anyone?

    McGrady predicted the win against Atlanta. Since the Hawks have had their number recently, delivering on this prediction will help the team build confidence against the looming stronger teams........Lakers Record anyone ?

    Your consistent POV is impressive, or the win streak? :pound:

    I'm tired of getting beat up for the luck comment by you and Ladies Coach. There is an element of luck, good fortune, divine providence, karma, what-have-you, and obviously the undermanned Rockets would not be pulling off a streak this impressive without that intangible element being in their favor. Good teams once in a generation pull of a streak like this. Not Cookie Monster and T-Choke.

    Leave it to the statman to argue for averages. :)

    21 in a row is nothing to sneeze at, however, the New England Patriots proved to us - it doesn`t matter how many reg season wins you get in a row, can you bring it all home???

    Pistons proved that, too, a couple seasons ago.

    21 in a row is a NBA media feel good story. Enough to move games around the schedule on ABC to see if they can bring in more of the curious and up the ratings. Kobe vs[STRIKE] Yaoless [/STRIKE] T-Mac ... Battle for # 1 in the conference as both teams will enter the game with identical 45-20 records

    Oh yeah, once again the Pistons have been relegated to the JV/consolation game with the Hornets who by the way are just a half game by the Rockets/Lakers at 44-20.

    Still confidence is a good thing, Zoo.
    We've all been waiting and knowing this could happen. T-mac getting his with a little help now.
    Whatever happens it's going to be devastating.

    Being out here in Montana, I learned that a "stable relationship" can also happen inside the barn. It's a shame that Rogers couldn't live up to his potential and enjoy a stable relationship with the Lions.

    Since I didn`t get the Pistons game, I watched all of the Rockets/Lakers game on ABC. I don`t think the Rockets are going to take the west, but they are fun to watch right now.

    You get caught up in what they are doing and find yourself rooting for them. They are playing hard, and surprisingly are right there with the Pistons and Spurs, playing the best defense in the league.

    If this streak gets to 25-26 games will they throw Adelmans` name out there for Coach of the Year?

    I particularly enjoyed seeing Battier with his hand right in Kobe's face on a number of shots. I'd like to see him in a Piston uni one of these years.

    Best fan signs at the Lakers-Rockets game: "T-Mac for President" and right beside it, "Kobe for Governor of New York."

    Off the hook! :pound:

    15 point halftime lead without T-Mac scoring a point. Talk about no name team effort.

    Who was the star of the day Jarvis Hayes' 29 pts on seven 3's or Rafer Alston's 31 pts and eight 3's?, and which team needed those 3's the most??:sssh:

    The streak is over and Susan Lucci wins!!!

    You know what mean... The Boston D took over this game right before the half and shot the Rockets down after that. Tmac dished out 8 assists, but they held him to 11 shots so he only scored 8 pts. They beat the Lakers the other night, but the next three games at New Orleans, Golden State and Phoenix could take them from first to sixth and before you know it the streak is all but forgotten.....

    hey where da big butt women at? :)
