    The Houston Rockets were expected to play better than they have so far this season, but don’t blame Luis Scola, who is having a career year.  While the Rockets stumbled out of the gate, they appear to be righting the ship with wins like the one they earned last night against the Detroit Pistons.  Scola […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 3/15/10 – Aaron Brooks

    Going into this season, no one would have guessed that Aaron Brooks would emerge as the star of the Houston Rockets.  In fact, no one would have thought any star at all was going to emerge in Houston.  Even with the acquisition of Kevin Martin at the trade deadline, Brooks has shined brightly for the […]
