R1-G5: Rockets vs. Blazers Prediction Game

Well this is an unfortunate situation. Rockets have their back firmly against the wall now and need to win 3 straight to take the series. Kevin McHale's post-game presser was anything but awe-inspiring. I'm hoping that at least Mo William's bitchass move puts some fire into this team to go out there and play with passion. This series has been decided by 7 points in 4 games. That's less than a basket per game. Additionally, the league has rescinded the phantom technical on Dwight in addition to that Game 1 bad call. That's potentially a 3 point swing. That means 1 free throw, on average, have decided this series. There's still hope. I know the players believe in themselves. It is up to the fans in Houston to go out and do the same.

Also, WTF, NBA? As the higher seed in this series, we get only 2 weekend games and both are on Sunday evenings? The Blazers (if this goes to 7) will have had 2 Friday games and a Sunday game.

Finally, since I'm tired of Blazers fans coming here and shitting on everything most passive aggressively, I'm removing them from the standings. Sorry if y'all were the good Blazers fans but I guess that means that you have work to do as a fanbase.
