Game 60 – Bucks
Post Game Analysis:
On the road once more the Houston Rockets faced the young Milwaukee Bucks. But, despite a great game by the Rockets star duo, the home court advantage and Jabari Parker snatched the victory. Furthermore Houston are sinking without a trace under .500 and in jeopardy of missing the post season.
With Jason Kidd betting on his squad’s reach and specifically their height, it took a while for the Rockets to adapt to the Bucks long, slim forwards.
Overall the game was very entertaining with both sides favoring their offensive potential over defensive awareness choosing instead to showcase athleticism and dunks. The game was highlighted by great performances from sophomore Jabari Parker and veteran Trevor Ariza.
Ultimately though the Rockets have suffered when trading baskets with their adversary, the team showed they don’t learn from their mistakes and the Bucks made them pay for it.
