Brooks Shows Up As Rockets Beat Wolves!

Aaron Brooks after a terrible game last night vs the Chicago Bulls came to live vs the TImeberwolves. Aaron and his Rockets teammates played well in the second half tonight but in the first half it looked like it would be another one of those scary down to the last second games but luckily it wasn't it was a nice and most needed win for Houston. In the first half the Rockets seemed to be maybe a little tired from last nights game cause they where sluggish at times. Yao played well tonight and was able at times to get some what of a position on his defender when he was being fronted by Kevin Love. It was close going into the half as the score was 53-54. The Rockets in the second half seemed to pick up there level of play as they cruised in the third period scoring at will on fast breaks and open jumpers. In the third quarter the Rockets did not lay down like they did vs the Bulls do in much part of the double point guards on the court at the same time cause Lowry played the point and Brooks the 2 guard spot and it was hard for the Timberwolves to really match them with there quickness. The game came out on the Rockets favor tonight as they beat the Timberwolves on the road 105-94. Yao finished the night with some nice numbers going for 17 points 11 rebounds and 6 block shots. AB finished with 22 points and 10 assist and Ron Artest had 23 points and Luis added to his number of double doubles in the season going for 15 points and 11 rebounds. A nice and needed game for Houston after last night disaster in Chicago cause now the Rockets are 2.5 games behind the Spurs in the Southwest division. Rockets next game will be on Tuesday night at home vs the Toronto Raptors and that will be a 7:30pm tip off.
