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.

    Tonight, Luis SCOLA was simply incredible for the Rockets. His performance gave Houston the much needed win they were desperate for as this is a crucial time in the NBA for teams who still have a mathematical chances of making it into the playoffs (Please check out my post on his performance against the Nets).

    The Rockets need to realize that they’re more than just about Yao and T-Mac. They have all the talent they need to make the cut. Sure Yao is a big present and T-Mac is fully gifted and explodes when on his best. This is where other can make a name for themselves. And tonight, as it was previous games, SCOLA did just that.

    The Rockets have really played good team basketball this season. I think it will really bode well for 2010-11 when Yao returns to action. Back on point, Scola is a very solid player who they pretty much stole from the rival Spurs a few years ago.
