To Close For Comfort!

The Rockets last night vs the Detroit Pistons played to the level of there competition or there where just not into the game at all even though it was a televised game on ESPN. Rockets looked very sluggish and just could not shake off the Pistons at all during the game last night leading as high as 10 in the fourth only to let Rodney Stuckey and Will Bynum take charge by taking the ball to the Rockets defense when ever they wanted scoring with ease! Afflalo was another player for the Pistons that was hitting from long and short range scoring 24 points Stuckey had 21 points and 10 assist. The Pistons even being short handed last night vs the Rockets did not back down they took it at the home team in every possion and took the Rockets to a double over time game that the Rockets won but did fight for!! Rockets won do to the leader ship of Yao Ming scoring like a machine in the overtimes and played nice D! Ron had a nice night as well for the Rockets scoring 26 bpoints and 4 rebounds for the good guys! Yao had 31 points 15 rebounds and 4 block shots as the Rockets won in 2OTs 101-106. The Rockets now focus on the Timberwolves who come into town on Friday night to play in the Toyota Center hopefully the Rockets wont play around and take this team for granted cause this team last night came close to beating the Hornets in New Orleans losing by only 1!

  1. Hi Ovill, saw the Rockets/Spurs game. Seems to me those final basket ensured that both Yao and Scola are made for each other.

    Now the Rockets leads the Division and with a chance to finish 2nd in the Western Conference.

    Here is my re-cap, please check it out.
