Houston Rockets 83, Atlanta Hawks 75

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Game recaps, General by alleyoop on Friday 14 March 2008 at 12:07 am

The Rockets only shot 33% from the floor on Wednesday Night but it didn’t stop them from winning their 20th game in a row!

Chuck Hayes pitched in with 8 points and 12 rebounds in 33 minutes off the bench. The Rockets are now 44-20 on the season.

The Houston Rockets bring in Justin Williams

Blogged under Big Rockets News, Bloglockers, Comings & Goings, Front Page by alleyoop on Thursday 13 March 2008 at 1:35 pm

The Rockets have signed F/C Justin Williams to a 10-day contract. In his first game with the Rockets the 23-year old played 6 minutes and scored 3 points and grabbed a rebound. Williams has now played in 23 games this season with the Kings & Rockets and he is averaging 5.4 minutes, 1.5 points and 2.1 rebounds. Williams should be a decent addition to the Rockets as long as he behaves off the court which is something he didn’t do in Sacramento.

The Houston Rockets got a nice haul in the NBA Draft

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Rookie Reports by alleyoop on Sunday 2 March 2008 at 12:43 pm

The Rockets drafted Carl Landry and Aaron Brooks but stealing Luis Scola from the Spurs is what’s making the front office smile the most. Scola has played in 58 games (15 starts) this season for the Rockets and he is averaging 22.1 minutes, 9.0 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game. He is a good shooter from the floor hitting 53% but he’s only making 61.9% of his free throws. Look for Scola’s numbers to improve big-time now that he’s in the starting lineup. Carl Landry has also been quite a find for the Rockets. He has played in 25 games (0 starts) this season for the Rockets and he is averaging 15.8 minutes, 7.9 points, 5.0 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game. He is shooting better from the floor (64.2%) than the free throw line (62.9%) and that’s pretty odd. Look for Landry to get more playing time to make up for the loss of Yao Ming to injury. Aaron Brooks has been buried on the depth chart of the Rockets but they really like him. Brooks has played in 37 games (0 starts) this season for the Rockets and he is averaging 11.7 minutes, 4.5 points, 1.0 rebound and 1.6 assists per game. His shooting is a little off from the floor (38%) but he’s hitting 84% from the free throw line. Look for Brooks’ shooting % to go up when he starts getting more playing time in the future.

Houston Rockets 116, Memphis Grizzlies 93

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Game recaps, General by alleyoop on Sunday 2 March 2008 at 2:13 am

The Rockets shot 50.6% from the floor and they outrebounded the Grizzlies 53-40 which explains the ease of victory on Friday Night. Tracy McGrady led the way for the Rockets with 25 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists and 2 blocked shots. Luis Scola was an energy ball in this game as he finished with 15 points, 5 rebounds and 5 steals. Luther Head was only 3 of 11 shooting from the floor but he still finished with 15 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists. Carl Landry had another solid game as he finished up with 15 points and 3 rebounds in only 16 minutes. The Rockets are now 38-20 on the season.
