As everyone knows by now, AK-47 followed up Game 1 by crying about his lack of playing time. In Game 1 he played only 16 minutes and scored just 2 pts. So how did he follow up that impressive performance? By scoring ZERO points in 18 minutes tonight. Wow. I didn't think it was possible for him to play any worse tonight than he did in Game 1, but he managed to do it. Sloan might just want to bench him for the rest of the series. At the rate AK-47 is going, he might start scoring baskets for the Rockets in Game 3.
AK-47 wasn't the only one on Utah to throw up a stinker either. Okur went for only 4 pts. Two starters going for a combined 4 points. Not going to win a lot of games when that happens. Carlos Boozer did his best with 41 pts, but it wasn't enough as McGrady went for 31 and Yao went for 27. The Rockets won 98-90.
