The Rockets really looked pathetic last night in Portland. They were trailing this game 75-56 heading into the 4th quarter before a rally made the final score not look so bad. The Rockets were out-rebounded 51-33 and they only shot 37% from the floor and that was a recipe for disaster last night. Aaron Brooks led the way for the Rockets in this game with 19 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals. He was the only starting player for the Rockets that came out with fire in his eyes. Trevor Ariza also started but he finished up with 12 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists. Kyle Lowry was solid off the bench for the Rockets as he finished with 12 points, 3 rebounds, 8 assists and 2 steals. David Andersen also had a good game in his NBA debut with 11 points and 5 rebounds in only 19 minutes on the floor. The Rockets are 0-1 on the season and they are going to lose a lot of games if they don’t start playing better than they did last night.

    It looks like the Rockets are going to be in big trouble without Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming. They are going to need Trevor Ariza and Shane Battier to step up big time. Ariza is going to need to play like he did in the playoffs last year for the Lakers. Actually, they will need even more out of him, as a lot of scoring load is falling on him. Aaron Brooks played great, but like you said, he was the only one who really played like it mattered. Rookie Chase Budinger will be getting more minutes then he expected, and he made some good plays last night, including a nice drive down the middle he finished with a two handed flush.
