Guy Lewis should have known to “dance with the one you brung” and what got Houston to the dance was a high-flying, slamma jamma offense.
IIRC he slowed his team down because they were feeling the altitude especially Olajuwon who was sucking oxygen on the sideline. Lewis wanted him for the whole game and was afraid that if he pushed the tempo too much he would lose him. Seems like they pushed the tempo at the beginning of the 2nd half and then shut it down to try and preserve a lead.
I remember the dunks like you do. The commentators had made such a big deal of it leading up to the game that I tried to pay attention like you I think it was two dunks for us and one for them.
