Entering the game with a three-game winning streak, it looked like the Houston Rockets had their mojo back as they prepared for an early season rematch against the Brooklyn Nets, Tuesday night. However, after coughing up the ball 12 times, and allowing 32 points in the paint during the first half, it was clear that the Rockets still have a long way to go before they can reclaim their respect as championship contenders.
Although they played sluggish throughout the game, I do not blame their lack of efficiency on one of the Rockets. Due to Dwight Howard‘s birthday bash Sunday night, in the words of R&B singer Jame Foxx, I blame this game on the a-a-alcohol!“
