3rd game in 4 nights. Always seems that we play PHX after a B2B or something like this and get run out of the gym. I think we lose this as well. Again I see us starting off like last year, so-so through the first 20 or so games before things click.
Nice game tonight, McGrady finally looked like McGrady tonight. Aaron Brooks continues to impress. Rafer got ejected LOL. We got Spurs on friday we should beat them too, they are really short handed.

What the hell happened with Alston? Was there a legit scuffle, or was it the normal BS pro sports fight?

He was the victim of a punk move and should not have been ejected. What's worse is there wasn't even a foul called, which is par for the course if you play for the Rockets and get mugged, like Yao gets pretty much every time he goes to the post. But did you see that pass Skip made earlier in the game, shades of and1 under the rim. For the first time all year the Rox D looked like last years suffocating squad, they shut PHX down after the first 5 minutes. Team is right on schedule where I thought they'd be, once Battier comes back watch out, they will be tremendous as Artest can move to the bench where he fits better.

Good luck with that whole Artest to the bench thing. I'm sure he'll be perfectly okay with that.

he said as much when he signed, and if the team is winning, it won't be a problem. He'll still get his minutes, like Ginobli, but we'll see.

I would love to see either Battier/Artest off the bench, doesnt matter who, our bench is deep, Landry, Brooks, Battier/Artest would be great, and when Deke comes back look out.
Nash is a little b***h.
