Team Ball Wins Game!

The Houston Rockets tonight played extremely well moving the ball finding the open jump shooter and connecting on 15 three pointers! The Rockets got help from all starting 5 and the bench. This game tonight vs the Nets was not much a game due to the Rockets doubling Devin Harris and not letting him drive inside and letting him break down the defense to find his open shooters as it was Rafer tonight who did what Devin normally does finding his open team mates and at times making some shot of his own. The Rockets tonight had 5 players in double figures in scoring with Yao leading the way with 20 points and 12 rebounds. Luis Scola finished the night with 10 points and 11 rebounds and trust me Luis worked for his rebounds tonight chasing down lose balls down left and right. But the player i was most impressed with was Shane Battier who seemed to get his shot back tonight by hitting 5-8 with the all 5 being 3's Shane finished the night with 19 points. The Rockets win tonight in easy fashion knocking out the the New Jersey Nets 114-88. Before the game tonight owner Leslie Alexender told the media that SG Tracy McGrady would not be dealt before the trade dead line on Thursday. The Rockets Still are in some trade talks with Phoenix (Amare Stoudamire) and the Timberwolves (Mike Miller) Other trades are out there but the Rockets have yet announced what they are thinning about doing. The Rockets next game will be on Friday vs the HATED Dallas Mavericks in Houston and that will be a 7pm tip off 30 minutes before normal time.
