Back To Earth?

The Rockets faced the Utah Jazz in Utah last night riding a 4 game road winning streak. The Rockets came out blazing for the first 1 minute or so taking a 5-0 lead but then let Utah bring it back to there style of game as the Rockets struggled to adapt to the game. Rockets had there chances to take the crowd out of it but they got to crazy with the 3 point shot taking one after the other! The other problem for the Rockets last night seemed to be there spacing they had no spacing it was always crowded in the paint forcing the 3 ball and at times taking the 3 with a hand in there face and that's not how you win basketball games in Utah! Rockets seemed to be out of it heading into the fourth Ron Artest tried to take the game under his wing but was not able to AB had a nice night holding his own vs Deron Williams but it was Brevin Knight playing better than Kyle Lowry and that was one key factor in the Rockets loss tonight besides all of the other stuff we talked about bench was not an issue for Houston Brent Barry missed like 3 straight 3s and Von could not get anything going to the basket as Utah got Utah calls all night long. There was really no one to blame for last nights loss but the team it self there was no FIRE tonight! Rockets fall to the Jazz 99-86 with the lost and the Spurs winning at home vs the Warriors the Rockets fall back down to the 3rd seed in the west and 2nd in the south west. Player of the game for the Rockets was Aaron Brooks who had 20 points and 4 assist. Rockets next game will be on Saturday at home vs the Clippers and that will be a 7:30 pm start. Rockets also signed James White for the remainder of the season as the Rockets GM feels like White is project player and could be a good one in the long run.
