Default Jazz at Rockets

http://the.honoluluadvertiser.com/ar...914025378.html

Yao's out. Sounds like bronchitis or something along those lines. With Tracy still recovering from his knee injury, this should theoretically make the Jazz favourites for tonight, but with their piss-poor form on the road, anything can happen.

The perfect night for me would be a:

Jazz win (Seems likely with Yao out)
Portland loss (Seems likely at the moment. Down 15 at the half to Atlanta)
Denver loss (Seems likely considering Dallas is so good at home, and Melo isn't playing)
Golden State loss (Don't know yet)

Remember when Adleman's Kings went without Webber for a while? They were very run-n-gun, maybe we'll see something similar with Yao out.

Yeah, he gets a lot of backup minutes. Brewer starts, and it seems like they split the sg minutes down the middle.

He is playing well in the offense, spreading the floor from the weak side for the high Williams/Boozer pick and roll.

Edit: hey, Price is getting minutes.

Slow start for both team so far. Lets see if Houston can pick it up in the second.

19-16 Jazz at the end of first. D-Will in foul trouble with 2, which is affecting the Jazz. Korver not in yet. ;)

The Rockets look bad without Yao, the ball is mostly thrown around a perimeter until someone throws up a contested jump shot. Tracy looking sluggish, clearly not 100% yet.

Rockets starting to turn it over excessively.

Korver is such an improvement over Giricek, it's not even funny. And he doesn't even really know the system yet. I can't believe Philly agreed to this trade, especially since the pick involved will probably be in the 20s.

It must be contract length. Korver is signed through '10/'11 with increasing salary (5.5m the last year), Giricek is an expirer at 4m.

Edit: I have seen Boozer take a few Duncanesque bank shots in the last two games. Anyone else see the same thing?

41-35 at the half. The Jazz playing half-heartedly and passing up opportunities to blow the game open.

T-Mac is 1-8 from the field. Rockets largely being pulled along by their rookies.

Kirilenko is everywhere. There was a good play with about a minute to go in the half where Rafer crossed him over, blew by him for a lay-up, only for AK to come back, stuff him, and tip the ball to Okur while falling out of bounds.
