Michael Ventre at NBC says it may be a lack of killer instinct.
Tim Keown at ESPN says the Rocket’s win was not a fluke.
Michael Lee at WaPo:
“This was just one game, so I won’t overreact. I still have the Lakers winning this series in six games, but if they keep having more performances like last night, the Rockets will blow right by them — like Aaron Brooks did repeatedly against Derek Fisher. That is, if Yao isn’t more hurt than he let on. He’ll probably be sore this morning.
The Lakers should be upset.”
