Luis Landry to the rescue!

New, comments

Rockets beat the Durants by 12 tonight, 89-77.  Rockets once again shoot terrribly, but the dynamic duo of Luis Landry carries the team to their third victory to open the season.

Luis Landry combines for 24 points, 17 rebounds and 4 steals to put the game away in the 2nd half.

Rafer and T-Mac still experiencing shooting woes, but the Rockets' team defense continues to be suffocating when it needs to be.  Newsflash!!  Yao Ming actually missed a free throw.  I'm stunned.  And he played another 39 minutes.  That's somewhat of a cause for concern.

The good news?  Luther Head remained glued to the bench the entire game.  And Aaron Brooks looked good, though a little bit turnover prone in his 16 minutes of game action.  Oh, and the Rockets won again -that's what is most important.

3-0!
