Game Preview: Houston Rockets vs. Los Angeles Lakers - Game 4 - 2:30PM CST

I've got nothing.  Every chance the Rockets had of beating a better Los Angeles Lakers team in this series went out the window in the last 5 minutes of inexplicable play by Yao Ming that was allowed to happen by our coach.  There was absolutely no reason for Yao to be out there.  The team wasn't getting him the ball and he wasn't helping on defense because he was hurt.  I can't help but think that the fracture happened during that time because he was favoring his knee and his ankle.  Yao went from limping to running in agony in those last few minutes.  Why was he out there?  Anyone?  That's it guys, I'm sorry, I want to stay optimistic.  In fact, I'll be there with Dave tomorrow cheering my heart out.  The Rockets could even pull one out.  But it is very likely that this series is over in 5 or 6.  For those of you thinking I'm not a real fan because I'm not blindly following my team, I just kindly disagree.  I love the Houston Rockets, heck, I paid 90 bucks to sit in the upper deck for Game 4.  I just see what I see.  And the differences in this series were Kobe for the Lakers and Yao for the Rockets.  Yao won that battle in game 1, Kobe won it in games 2 and 3.  Without Yao, the Rockets cannot conceivably beat the Lakers in a series.  A game?  Sure.  A playoff game?  It remains to be seen.  I'll still be there, Rockets red pumping through my veins. 

Prediction:  My hearts already broken for Yao
