Rockets Take Care Of Wolves!

The Houston Rockets took care of business on Saturday night with good defence for almost a whole game they played 3 solid quarters of Houston Rockets defence that are used of seeing from them in the past. In the first quarter the Rockets played some what OK making the first shot of the game a Tracy McGrady 3 pointer and then went on to take a 8-2 lead but that was all of that in the 1st. The Timberwolves fought back with the help of there non All-Star center Al Jefferson (Who Should be an All-Star!) Jefferson just took Yao an Rockets to school with different looks scoring from the inside and mid range game and rebounding. Al Jefferson and company took an early lead in the ball game leading up to as many as 15 points in the 1st half but that was all for the Minnesota cause Yao got mad and the rest of his team mates followed him! Yao had two back to back MONSTER dunks that just seemed to ignite a fuse in the Rockets cause before the half the Rockets erased the 15 point lead by the Wolves and tied it at the half 50-50. The Rockets didn't lift there foot of the gas petal at all in the second half cruising to a 107-90 win over the TImberwolves. The Rockets played good on the defense side but in the offense side still needs to be worked out cause at times the Rockets feel like they have to throw up like 20 3's a game to win or to make them happy just do what you need to do to win Houston and that is feed the ball down to Yao and let him work and see what he has if nothing then you know he will kick it out to you then you can either take a 3 or work it in for a foul or a easy 2 with ball movement!!! The Rockets top performer was no other than Mr.Yao Ming! who had 30 points and 6 rebounds. for Minnesota it was Al Jefferson who poored in 36 points of his own. The Rockets next game will be on the road against the Milwaukee Bucks Monday night at 7pm tip-off.
