and Robert Horry was Ofor6 The Rockets were held to a sea sonlow percent shooting from the field and tied a season low with 82 points Coach Rudy Tomjanovich was amazed at his teams ineptitude on the offensive side We missed layups and outside Tom janovich said We were just hoping some body could break out of it and hit a three You have to give our defense credit for holding a highpowered offense like they have to under 90 But the Rockets couldnt find the basket It wasnt because they didnt get good shots If we didnt have open shots youd have to Tomjanovich said But we were get ting good shots We just have to keep working and those shots will fall for It was a repeat of the second quarter in Chicago on Jan 3 when the Rockets hit 1for 15 going from a threepoint lead to 17 points down at the half Houston lost 10086 Against the Spurs who beat the Rockets for the second time this season the Rockets wasted a solid defensive effort The Spurs had only two field goals in the fourth quarter and

without picking him up Id like to do that commercial over and I can tell you for dang sure Id be driving the car this Jones said I wouldnt mind somebody else getting that Jones tries to downplay the fact he wants to show Johnson he doesnt need him to win a Super Bowl But Jones said when he hired Barry Switzer just about anybody could do John sons job However the Cowboys lost to San Francisco in the NFC title game lasi year They get another shot on Sunday in Texas Stadium against the Green Bay Pack ers On Tuesday Jones didnt want to reveal all of his innermost feelings about winning a Super Bowl without his former Arkansas teammate 1 hear that talk and I guess its logical to relate to part of Jones said But dials a small thing in comparison to winningI he Super Bowl for everything it would mean If we win ii without Jimmy then youre not going to hear me allude to it or wink about it Just having a chance lo gel dial trophy again is all 1 Johnson was in charge ol all lie person nel
