Rockets v. Wi**rds - How Not to Coach

So, let me get this straight...

The Houston Rockets came out flat and cold tonight.  None of the starters had a good game.  Yao was off.  Tracy was off.  Scola was not playing well.  Alston was Alston.

Entering the fourth quarter, the Rockets trailed by 10 points to the 2nd worst team in the league.  Okay, maybe the 3rd worst.  Anyway... the bench comes in.

Artest, Brooks, Barry, Landry and Scola lead the Rockets back to take as much as a 3 point lead.  A 17-4 run to start the quarter.  Which was awesome.

And then someone woke Ricky up.  Dammit.

With two minutes left, Ricky puts Alston, Tracy and Yao back in the game.  The Rockets promptly go ice cold again.  The Wizards regain the lead... and hold on to win.  As the Guinness guys would say:

F-U, Rick Adelman.  JVG would never have allowed this to happen.
