With impending travel and the Rockets team looking worse than ever, I’m going to take a break from watching, analyzing and writing about each game and instead just concentrate on the watching (and hopefully devoting the freed up energy to prevent myself from breaking things around the apartment).
Today’s loss to the Thunder was tough to watch, which is why I did not watch a lot of it, instead choosing to play (and suck) at basketball myself and cook and eat dinner. The tilapia turned out pretty good if I say so myself.
Anyways, hoping that the Rockets turn it around but things look gloomy until we get some health back. A lot of people, including me, were quick to say that Aaron Brooks’ injury may have been a blessing in disguise, but as it has played out so far, we need his offense worse than ever. Our team’s offense currently consists of Martin and Scola. That’s it. Budinger, when he is not injured and not out of rhythm is a poor man’s third option. Yao coming back next week (or the week after) will help, but this team is digging a hole out of which it will be difficult to grab a Western Conference playoff berth without a massively long run.
