Win Streak

Things are looking up for the Rockets. McGrady is out and Artest, Battier and company are picking up the slack nicely. Sure was nice to send Cleveland packing. Adios king James!

Life without McGrady.

First game back after the break and the Rockets beat the Nets like bastard stepchildren. Tracy who?

All-Star Break

I'm tired and frustrated from the Rockets' roller-coaster ride this season, so I'm taking an all-star break. Happy Valentine's Day everybody!

A win is a win, right?

Wrong. This one was better than usual, and not because of the opponents. The Minnesota Timberwolvews are hardly the class of the league, but even so, they had won 11 of their last 16 coming into Saturday night's game at Toyota Center. What made it special was that the Rockets played as a team. Five players scored in double figures, the rebounding and defense were good and three players had six assist each.

Are they finally putting it all together?

Plodding along

Still on a winning pace, the Rockets seem destined for the playoffs, but their inconsistent performances and continuing injury problems do not bode well for getting past the first round. Tracy is out again, Artest is still hobbled and Battier's injuries still linger.

It's high time for the hospital ship to leave port.
