keep this up were going to need some new adjectives Incredible unbelievable They all seem to fall short to describe the Rockets 120118 overtime victory over Orlando in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night It was perhaps the most astonishing chapter yet to this teams improbable playoff run What a great spoil we Houston coach Rudy Tomjanovich said Hakeem Olajuwon pushed around by Shaquillc ONeal much of the night winning the scoring battle between them but losing the rebound fight bigtime won the game with a rebound After trailing by 20 points in the first half alter being headed for certain defeat before Orlandos Nick Anderson missed four free throws in the final seconds of regulation the Rockets hold 10 lead in the series Its been like this from the beginning of the

Wednesdays stunning outcome lurked an ugly monster called scries tone Tlie referees set it and they apparently are ready to let Shaquillc ONeal get away with bigtime bull near the basket ll was forgivable the first time the large guy put his shoulder down and lunged elbow first into Hakeem Olajuwon plowing the center to the floor It got comical the third and fourth time Shuq rammed his way to the goal will only u handslap Iravel Thomas Godley ing call In any other league he would have had five fouls at the half Not in the NBA which promotes oneonone celebrity matchups Shaq on the bench does nothing for ratings Facing that kind of handicap the Rockets had no business stealing Game 1 in Orlando The Magic in all honesty mustered as much as could be expected against the defending champions They took a 20point lead in the second half and at times the new kids looked down right dominating and confident The Shaq was holding his own against the Dream and ihe Magic perimeter game was clicking Guards Nick Anderson Anfernee Hardaway and Brian Shaw looked way too comfortable bombing from beyond the arc Heck in the first half Horace Grant single handedly controlled the Rockets Even as Clyde Drexler was getting into a groove and Kenny Smith was unconsciously connecting on longdistance liners a Rockets fan had to feel lucky to still be in it Rudy Tomjanavich no doubt was counting his blessing when Nick I Only Make Threes Anderson missed four straight free throws Rudy T had to feel good too to see his team tied in overtime with five seconds left and the ball The silence that overcame the frenzied crowd in Orlando told the story It was so quiet that Olajuwon himself fig ured a foul was called and the shot didnt count The moment for some strange reason evoked flashbacks from eleven years ago when the University of Houstons lost the NCAA championship to North Carolina State on a lastsecond shot Maybe it was the way Olajuwon who this lime kepi his eye on ihe ball looked lo the ref erees for assurance The tipin was good and the Rockets can thank their lucky stars for coming away with this one They will however need plenty more prayers from here out in the series if Shaq continues to get his battering ram licenced by the men in the striped shirts Thomas Godley is spurts editor for the HeraldZeitung None better in softball The Braves finished the sea son
