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.
