The Rockets defense continues to struggle overall giving up wide-open looks from behind the arc and letting guys get to the basket too easily on pick and rolls. However, the brilliance of Scola, Dalembert, and Lowry are keeping them in it. Yes, I said Dalembert. So far Dalembert has 8 points on 4-4 shooting, 5 rebounds, 3 blocks, and 1 steal in just 16 minutes of play. Kyle Lowry led the way during the 3rd and is now flirting with a triple-double with 15 points, 11 assists, and 6 rebounds. The Rockets closed the quarter on a 6-0 run to cut the lead to 4 but will need to play better defense to win this game.
