Rockets Put Away Sixers: Great Team Win–Especially for the Money Boys + Smith, Douglas, Morris

The chemistry among the Money Boys (i.e., Harden, Lin and Asik) reminded me of the chemistry they had in Harden’s debut games–except it was even better tonight.

Crazy win over Lakers: Rockets steal a game from Kobe/Dwightmare

Strange night. First, the Wizards beat the Heat, doubling their number of wins for the season and then the Rockets bench came back from being down the entire game (save 2 and 1/2 minute left to go) to beat the Continue reading Crazy win over Lakers: Rockets steal a game from Kobe/Dwightmare

Rockets Beat Jazz: Another Great Team Win

Both teams played well tonight–especially offensively. Rockets moved the ball very well, tonight–as well as they have all season. That’s how they shot 55.4% from the field and 50% from 3-point.
