Rockets Red Glare

The Rockets were missing Yao Ming, the Celtics were missing Kevin Garnett.  The Rockets were missing Kevin Martin and Chuck Hayes, the Celtics were missing Kendrick Perkins and Delonte West.

Neither team could pull ahead all game as the momentum rocked back and forth like a see-saw.  Finally in the 3rd quarter the Rockets built a double digit lead forcing the Celtics to claw back with an 8-0 game in the last few minutes.  Ultimately it wasn't enough though and the Celtics drop their 2nd in a row.

  • Aaron Brooks paced the Rockets with 24 points but this was a well balanced effort from Houston with all 7 players in double figures.
  • You know who misses KG the most?  Glen Davis, who logged over 37 minutes and shot just 6 - 14 (most shots on the team).
  • Actually a very good game from Marquis Daniels who had 19 points off the bench.
  • Not exactly a solid defensive effort, yielding 108 points and a lot of open looks.
