Rockets Split!

The Houston Rockets have split their last two games, the first one at home vs the Spurs where they had the game mostly controlled in most part, leading at times by 20 points and then managing to ketthe Spurs crawl back within as close as 3 late in the fourth quarter. The Rockets escaped with a most need win vs Spurs to stay in the hunt for the eight seed in the playoffs. Also vs the Spurs the Rockets set a franchise record for having 3 players scoring 30 points or more. Kevint Martin had 33, Scola had 30 and point guard Aaron Brooks finished with 31 points, the last 4 from AB came from made free throws. On the next night the Rockets played a complete opposite role just not having anything offer vs the Jazz in Utah. The Rockets from the beginning didn't really have chance do to the face that they where still without Ariza, Lowry and Shane Battier was out as well with flu like symptoms. The Jazz managed to destroy the Rocket hope early and never looked back as the Jazz won the game big 133-110. Houston Rockets have to do some soul searcing if they want to be in the playoff hunt when it's all said and done. The Rockets will play at home vs the Raptors tonight at 7:30pm and the game will be on ch. 678 on DirecTv. Don't forget Rockets fans on Wed.
