Rockets Mini-recap

So the last time I wrote I had just finished watching us win at Phoenix to start 2-0 on our 4 game west coast swing. That high was immediately lost with a horrible 2 game losing streak to Golden State and Sacto, respectively. Against the Warriors (L 113-94) we were really never in the game. T-Mac and Yao combined for 21...POINT BLANK PERIOD end of story. What was worse was the total lack of effort, energy, excitement...hell anything that starts with "e" 2 nights later against the Kings (L 107-99). Yeah, T-Mac dropped 40 (but took 30 shots) and Yao had another double-double (29-11) but the rest of the team put up diddly squat. Believe me, the final difference was 8 points, and we led at the half...but the 2nd half was where the effort failed. A not so wonderful 1st trip back to Sacto for Coach Adelman.

3 days off plus a little practice time proved to be just what the doctor ordered after Wednesday's home win over Memphis (W 105-92). Note to the rest of the league, if you match up a 6' 1" guard against Bonzi Wells, he'll make you pay. 24 poontas (11-14 from the floor) in 29 minutes...yeah, son that's what I'm talkin' bout! Our bench outscored the Grizz 42-9 with Bonzi and Scola going for 40 combined! Not to mention T-Mac going for the trey-dub (3rd of his career) as well. Just what we needed going into the upcoming 3 game east coast swing.

and there it is...
