Daily Dime recap

Here’s my recap for on the Rockets’ huge win tonight over the Blazers:

MVP: The Rockets’ bench. The bench mob erupted for 66 points, saving this game. Patrick Patterson shut down LaMarcus Aldridge, Chase Budinger hit shots, and Courtney Lee and Goran Dragic accumulated floor burns.

LVP: The Blazers’ starting bigs. Aldridge and Marcus Camby combined for 13 points and 10 boards. On this night, the “bigs” played small, giving the Blazers close to nothing.

That Was … Scary: Kyle Lowry left the game in the third, running straight to the tunnel, his arm hanging awkwardly out of place. Reports are that he suffered just a bruise, but it looked a lot worse.

    Nice write up but i’m not sure if ESPN is aware we’re the Houston Rockets and not the Houston Rocker.

    @andrewmoccasin In that vein, it appears the Cavaliers played both the Clippers and the Knicks tonight.

    Now that was a win that might turn a few heads :).
