So after a nail-biting and hard-earned win over Phoenix Sun, the Houston Rockets will play against a visiting Charlotte Bobcats in Toyota Centre.

Houston Rockets' win did not help to reduce the 3-game gap between them and #8 Memphis Grizzlies. They are still 11th in the Western Conference, but 0.5 game behind Phoenix Sun and 1 game behind Utah Jazz. Any slip up of the other 2 teams might propel the Rockets to #9. Of course, the Houston Rockets need to win their remaining games as many as possible.

This game with the Charlotte Bobcats is therefore a MUST WIN.

This will be the second time both team meet. Charlotte Bobcats beat the Rockets last time they visited Charlotte. So the Rockets will need to play with energy, intensity, urgency and conviction if they are to avoid losing to the Bobcats on their own home court in 6 years, and be clean swept for this season.

GO GO GO ROCKETS !!!! GO FOR A WIN !!!

1H ended. 49 ~ 39. Houston Rockets led by 10 points.

The Rockets did quite well so far. Pretty good defense, limiting the Bobcats to a low 44% FG% and 16% 3-pointer%, while they shot at 46% FG% and 54% 3-pointer%. They out-rebounded (21 vs 15) and out-assisted (12 vs 8 ) the Bobcats, and had fewer turnovers (6 vs 7).

Hope they can stretch the lead further to put the game away from the Bobcats in 3Q.

Captain Chuck Hayes MVP for this game.

He played AWESOME on both end of the courts.

94 ~ 78 WIN !!!!

Great defensive game played and pretty distributed balanced scoring!!!


All 5 starters (Kyle Lowry, Kevin Martin, Chase Budinger, Patrick Patterson, Chuck Hayes) and Jordan Hill were in double digit scoring.

As Phoenix Sun lost to New Orleans Hornets, the Rockets now moves up to #10 of the Western Conference. :P

OOPPSS !!! :oops:

For some reason, 2 points were deducted from Captain Hayes stats, but added to Patrick Patterson.

9 points/17 rebounds/7 assists.

Nevertheless, still MVP performance, with EVEN MORE assists than Kyle Lowry.

For real? What I heard was that someone said that you were too busy with work and that you couldn't post for both websites. What did they ban you for if you don't mind me asking? Uploading too many pics or picking fights like you do here?
