Houston Rockets: Jeff Van Gundy isn't asking too much of his team. "I know this: I know we can come out and play one great game," coach Jeff Van Gundy said in the Houston Chronicle. "We need to play one great game to get back in the series." And how hard can that be? "It's a lot shorter list what was done right," Van Gundy said. "You can go possession by possession. It was awful defense. It started with a lack of determination. Give L.A. credit. They played well offensively. We made far too many mistakes. We didn't show enough defensive discipline. We were down four with a minute to go (in the third quarter), and it goes to 10. It was a workable number. Then it goes to an unworkable number. What we're trying to do is make corrections from what we did wrong, come back and do it better. But we need the guys playing the big, big minutes to be very determined and disciplined."
