Jordan Hill is starting to step up with the Houston Rockets

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Rookie Reports,Steppin Up by alleyoop on Thursday 25 March 2010 at 5:58 pm

Backup forward Jordan Hill has finally got into the Rockets’ rotation and he has been doing a good job. Hill has played in 12 games (0 starts) for the Rockets this season and he is averaging 16.0 minutes, 6.0 points, 4.9 rebounds and 0.7 assists per game. He has a nice upside and the Rockets were smart to get him in a trade.

Kevin Martin is really playing well for the Houston Rockets

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by alleyoop on Thursday 25 March 2010 at 5:53 pm

Starting shooting guard Kevin Martin has been really solid for the Rockets since coming over from the Kings. Martin has played in 17 games (15 starts) for the Rockets this season and he is averaging 36.9 minutes, 21.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. Martin gives the Rockets a go-to scorer that they didn’t have until he came to town.

The Houston Rockets lose Shane Battier for a while

Blogged under Big Rockets News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by alleyoop on Tuesday 23 March 2010 at 9:05 am

SG/SF Shane Battier will miss the next 10-14 days due to a hyperextended left knee. Battier has played in 67 games (62 starts) this season for the Rockets and he is averaging 32.4 minutes, 8.0 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.1 blocked shots per game. The Rockets will miss Battier’s leadership and defense while he is out of action.

UPDATE: Battier is officially out for the season.

Luis Scola is playing strong basketball for the Houston Rockets

Blogged under Big Rockets News,Bloglockers,General,Steppin Up by Andrew on Friday 12 March 2010 at 6:33 pm

The Houston Rockets’ power forward Luis Scola has been one of the few consistent players down low for them all season long.  He is a strong player who is a solid defender and a great rebounder.  On the season, Scola is averaging 15.1 points, 8.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 0.7 steals while playing only 30.9 minutes per game.  The Rockets have been having an up and down season, and with a record of 32-31 they will likely miss the playoffs in a stacked Western Conference.  You can’t put much blame on Scola though, as he has filled in great for a depleted Rockets’ frontcourt who have been without their star center Yao Ming all season (broken foot).  Scola has been playing very well lately, especially in his last seven games were he’s shooting 50% and is averaging 19.7 points, 12.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 0.9 steals.  The Rockets are 5 games out of the playoff picture, and with 19 games left they will need to put together a lot of wins if they want any chance of making the postseason.  Scola can definitely help the Rockets do that, but everyone else on the team needs to step up.

Sacramento Kings 84, Houston Rockets 81

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,Game recaps,General by alleyoop on Thursday 4 March 2010 at 6:22 pm

The Rockets only shot 39% from the floor so it’s no wonder that they lost last night. Aaron Brooks led the way for the Rockets last night with 22 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists despite only shooting 9 of 25 from the floor. Luis Scola was the only Rocket player who brought his “A” game last night as he finished up with 19 points, 18 rebounds and 5 assists. Kevin Martin finished up with 14 points and 8 rebounds on 3 of 13 shooting against his old team. The Rockets are now 30-30 on the year. The Rockets can’t afford to lose at home to teams like the Kings if they wanted to make the playoffs.
