For the third installment of the Rockets Weekly Wrap-Up, don’t expect a whole lot of anything new. The Rockets put forth an 0-4 standing last week, losing to Dallas, Phoenix, Memphis, and Chicago. It’s the “same ol’, same ol’” when it comes to Houston. They play solid, consistent defense, and play sporadically on offense. As the overall season record stands at 3-11, injuries have been the downfall of the Rockets. Tracy McGrady has missed eight games, Rafer Alston has missed six games, and, as of Friday against Memphis, guard Jon Barry has a left foot injury. Considering that the concept behind this team has been to put parts around McGrady and Yao Ming, it doesn’t help your cause when half of that base is M.I.A. Despite strong play from Luther Head, Moochie Norris, and Stromile Swift, the Rockets still lack a go-to force in crunch time, as Yao has proved that he is not yet ready (or willing) to accept such responsibility.
