Since the 2009-10 season for the Rockets was a disappointment, I will relive it but with the roster updates up to the first of May, 2010. Now we will see whether Yao Ming could've made a difference with this current roster and Tracy McGrady's departure. I might not update this dynasty every day, but when I have time, I will upate it.

Before I start this dynasty, I give special thanks to badreligionau for showing me how to get the players' pictures on here (and for showing me other things). :D

Houston Rockets 108-95 TrailBlazers

The Rockets have lifted off successfully this season as they Blazed a Trail on Brandon Roy's TrailBlazers. The Blazers never exactly had the lead in this game, but they came within one on countless occasions, but the Rockets were able to pull ahead. K-Mart dominated and had 20 points in the first half. Yao Ming dominated the boards, and Aaron Brooks' 26 points sealed a victory at the Rose Garden 108-95. The Blazers didn't go down without a fight though, Roy had 27 points and Marcus Camby went 14 (points) and 16 (boards).

Box Scores-

Houston Rockets 108-99 Golden State Warriors

In a very tough game for the Rockets, they took the lead late in the 4th quarter for the first time since the 1st quarter. Kevin Martin scored 41 points and went 13/14 from the line. Yao and Andris Biedrins battled on the boards and had 15 and 14 boards respectively. Monta Ellis was a pain for the Rockets defense and he scored 32 points.

Sounds like a tough one, but you came out with the win when it's all said and done. You're certainly doing a good job of getting to the line.

Well that's been my specialty in this game, but sometimes the refs are stubborn in calling fouls. :(

That's what impresses me, the calls tend to favour the CPU especially post-patch, so it's not always an easy feat drawing that many shooting fouls.

Nice to see a Rockets story. With this line-up all healthy, you can make some serious noise in the West.

Yeah, it's fun setting a screen for him, then stepping in the paint to get to the foul line.

Thanks, I want this dynasty to take Yao to his first ring. :D

I was wanting to see a Rockets dynasty on here, but nobody had it, so I just started one myself. I hope to make the loudest noise in the West.

Re: Rockets Blaze a second trail [3-0]

Postby Axel The Great on Mon May 03, 2010 12:08 pm

Houston Rockets 112- Portland TrailBlazers 99

Image
Yao Ming didn't enjoy as many minutes, in fact he fouled out in the 4th.


Box Scores-
26 33 26 27 112
31 29 14 25 99

The Rockets headed back home after a two-game roadtrip and had another frustrating game. The Blazers got ahead by double digits in the 2nd, mainly due to the Rockets playing $1 defense (and what I thought were some paid referees), Brandon Roy was dunking at will. In the 3rd though, they stepped up the defense and limited the Blazers to 14 points. In the 4th, the Rockets got ahead by as many as 17, but the Blazers went on a 10-2 run, and had the game gone on a few minutes longer, the Blazers would've caught up. The bench had a good game, Shane Battier scored 14 points, and Mike Harris scored 10, while Kyle Lowry only scored 5, he shared the ball with 7 assists. K-Mart had a quiet night concerning free throws, but Aaron Brooks, like Lowry, shared the ball too. Despite Yao going 4 and 5, and fouling out, the Rockets won their first home game of the season 112-99.

Image
Scola had an explosive night with 12 points.

Image
Even the spectators could've played better defense.


Top Scorers:
Brandon Roy- 39
Kevin Martin- 25
Aaron Brooks- 20

Board Crashes:
Marcus Camby- 12
Chuck Hayes- 8
LaMarcus Aldridge- 8

Assists-
Aaron Brooks- 10
Kyle Lowry- 7

Blocks:
Marcus Camby- 3
Jordan Hill and Jared Jeffries- 2

Double Doubles-
Aaron Brooks- 20 points 10 assists
Marcus Camby- 14 points 12 rebounds

SPOTG-

Aaron Brooks

20 points | 10 assists | 4-4 FT

Yeah, I just hope injuries aren't a factor next season (in real life) so they can cause some havoc in the West.

Rockets play a tune of victory at the Energy Solutions Arena

[3-0]Houston Rockets 107-Utah Jazz 95[1-1]

Image
Jeffries is really known for his defense, and he showed Boozer that.

The Houston Rockets headed to Salt Lake City to extend their winning streak. The Rockets started with a bad 1st quarter, but got things going. They started the 2nd quarter on a 9-0 run, and the Jazz just couldn't play defense. Nobody was really much of a pain for the Rockets, but Carlos Boozer and Mehmet Okur got double-doubles going 18 and 16, and 26 and 11 respectively. Yao, however, had a game high 18 boards, and 15 points to go with that. K-Mart and Aaron Brooks had good games too, with 32 and 22 points respectively. Now the Rockets head back home to Houston to face the Lakers. One team's 4 game winning streak will end there. How much have the Rockets improved? Find out when they play the Lakers.
