So just so we're clear TX, you think the rox match up better with the Lakers than the Jazz, even though the Lakers swept you guys this season? I'm not trying to start crap, I'm just trying to interpret your post.
I think if you look at it in terms of individual matchups, the Rockets matchup better with the Lakers in the aspect that the Rockets players don't have to go out of their comfort zone whereas Okur and Williams can spread out and break down that Rocket defense.
The Lakers are just sound overall but the don't put the Rockets out of their comfort zone. It's just a matter of containing Kobe.
I don't think Stoney either understands what match up means, or is just such a fanboy that any possibility of anyone beating LA clouds his ability to read. For the record I already said LA is the favorite. The question is about matchups.
By that logic, let's talk about who has the nicest hair-doos. It has nothing to do with what will actually happen on the court, but it makes good conversation.
