Wow, I'm very happy. I started watching the game mid 2nd quarter and I didn't find any downside in the Rockets with the exception of David Andersen. They defended well, made their shots, drew fouls, and executed with perfection in the end. I'm most impressed with Chase Budinger. He was a big part of the key run in the 3rd quarter. Had 7 points and a rebound I think. Also, I'm starting to think that Chuck Hayes is not a liability on offense anymore. Whenever Brooks drives it, the baseline is always open and Chuck took advantage of that every time. Maybe this won't put the Rockets into the elite team discussion but it should definitely have an impact on everyone thinking they're a lottery team. I'm just pretty happy right now, had to say something.
