The Houston Rockets Fall to the Golden State Warriors 106-97
The Houston Rockets have been hot lately, but dropped one Sunday to the Golden State Warriors 106-97. Both Teams share a common link in the fact that neither one saw the potential of Linsanity. (Jeremy Lin) Lin, who is now lighting the NBA on fire, was waived by both teams.
Regardless of their misjudgement of Lin, The Rockets may have misjudged the talent for the Warriors. Klay Thompson, Monta Ellis, and Stephen Curry sparked the Warriors on a late run, and sped past the Rockets.
Kevin Martin played a solid game for the Rockets scoring 28 points, and Luis Scola chipped in 13 rebounds. The Rockets shot only 31-75 from the field and 11-29 from behind the arc. They out-rebounded the Warriors 47-35, but the Warriors shot over 50% from the field.
The Rockets have been playing well in spurts this season, but if they hope to make it to the post season, they need to find more consistency in the way they play.
