HOUSTON -- Is it possible for a team to be winning a series that's tied, a series in which they suffered a loss that equaled the worst in the franchise's playoff history? It sure feels like the Rockets are doing that. Maybe it's because they're 2-1 since Yao Ming last wore his uniform. Or maybe it feels like everything that can be lost is elsewhere, now that the Lakers are one defeat from watching their championship hopes evaporate in the second round and the NBA could be 48 minutes away from losing the possibility of its dream Finals of Kobe vs. LeBron.
