Rockets hope improved depth will curb any health issues
Notes : McGrady impressed with Novak

AUSTIN -- Kirk Snyder still shakes his head in bewilderment when he thinks about a game he played against Houston last season.

During a home game as a member of the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets in March, Snyder was stunned when he showed up for his pregame routine and discovered the team didn't have a complete scouting report on the Rockets.

Names were missing in Houston's lineup. No one had been given defensive assignments. And, even crazier, no one in the organization seemed to know who the Rockets would put on the floor that night.

Snyder had heard the Rockets were dealing with some injuries, but he couldn't believe Houston was that depleted because of them.

"During pregame, we usually talked about what we needed to stop and who we needed to look out for," said Snyder, who joined the Rockets in a trade this offseason. "But no one -- not even the coaches -- knew who was going to be in Houston's lineup. I couldn't believe it."

The Rockets are betting that doesn't happen again this season.

Default Going Deep?

It is way, way too early to rate how well the Rocket will develop a chemistry, but it is clear from the coach is handling this year's two-a-days that he feels this is a team of professionals and schooling in the fundimentals in not a priority. It is also clear that the Rockets are a team of 19 very talented basket ball players, otherwise they will not be with the Rockets. The trick is to develop the best chemistry among 15 and release or put into the developmental league the remaining hour. Coach Van Gundy is one of the best and we will get the chance to see what he has to work with on Tuesday, October 10. The game will be broadcast on FSNSW beginning at 7:30 pm. Only after that game can any of us, including the coach begin determine which 15 will remain wiht the team.
