The Houston Rockets lost this game partially because of an awful call on Luis Scola late in the game as Andrei Kirilenko flopped. But, the game was tied at the time so all the Rockets had to do the rest of the way was outplay the Jazz and they didn’t. Tracy McGrady led the way for the Rockets with 23 points, 13 rebounds, 9 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocked shots. Despite those fine numbers T-Mac has to show up in the 4th quarter of games as he only has 1 point in the 2 games of this series in the final quarter. Bobby Jackson did a good job stepping in for Rafer Alston as he scored 18 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and dished out 2 assists. Luis Scola had another decent game with 14 points and 5 rebounds. Aaron Brooks was solid off the bench with 11 points and 2 assists in only 18 minutes. The Rockets are now down 2-0 in this series.
