Let's get physical

Rockets forward Shane Battier saw the video. He knew things had gotten rough, but got an even better idea when he saw Kobe Bryant's elbow and knee bang into his head during their battle for a loose ball.

He did not, however, expect the NBA to act on its look at the video and said he does not care if it does.

"It does not really matter to me," Battier said. "That's playoff Basketball. It's just the way playoff Basketball is played. It looked worse on television than it was."

Moving forward

The Rockets did not have to look hard to find a reminder that winning the first game of a series does not indicate what might happen in the next.

"In the Portland (series), we looked really good in that first game," Rockets coach Rick Adelman said. "In the second game, they came out and we dropped off a little bit and we were in trouble. Hopefully our team learned from winning the first game in Portland that tomorrow is probably going to be the most difficult game. They're going to really come after us."
