Divided Focus...and some Rockets/Celtics Thoughts

Thank goodness that CBS is streaming the NCAA tournament online, otherwise I don't know what I'd do with myself tonight.

Houston Cougars vs Maryland Terps at 8:40pm
Celtics at Rockets at 7:30pm

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.

3.) I'm looking at the Ray Allen vs. Kevin Martin and the Trevor Ariza vs. Paul Pierce matchups tonight.  Should be exciting.  Also, look for Shane Battier to get some time checking Pierce tonight. 

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?

No cursing in title. No pirated material, such as links to online game streams. Do not cut/paste entire sections of content from other websites. Thanks.
