Thank goodness that CBS is streaming the NCAA tournament online, otherwise I don't know what I'd do with myself tonight.
On one hand, I gotta support my college team (go Coogs!) but on the other end, this is potentially a big game tonight for the Rockets. So yeah, with that aside, here's some thoughts to the Rockets game tonight.
1.) We're going to get to see 2 of the more underrated PG's in the NBA go head-to-head in Rajon Rondo and Aaron Brooks. Both guys do it differently; Brooks is more of a pure scorer where as Rondo is more of a playmaker for the Celtics. Either way, whomever wins the battle at the point will go a long way to determining the winner of this game.
2.) Luis Scola is playing like a man possessed lately. Its like he's been ON FIRE lately. I love what I'm seeing from this Argentine, and I hope it continues against Kevin Garnett and the Celts defense. Controlling the interior will go a long way towards winning this game.
4.) Jordan Hill continues to impress. I didn't see the Memphis game on Wednesday but Hill continues to show growth and lots of potential. We FLEECED NEW YORK. Man, getting their 09, 11 and 12 picks was a STEAL guys. A Yao/Scola/Hill 3-headed monster next year, with mixes of David Andersen and Chuck Hayes (for matchup purposes) is going to be awesome.
5.) Oh, and of course there's always this: Kyle Lowry, please keep your promise and play tonight. We NEED you.
So how is everyone feeling about the game(s) tonight?
