The Rockets picked apart the Bobcats on Wednesday as they cruised to a 107-87 win in Houston. The team improved their record to 24-20 with the victory and are now also 16-6 in home games. The Rockets are still scrambling to try and obtain a playoff spot. In the meantime, the Bobcats lost their 20th road game of the year. The Rockets have a lot of work to do still to try and position themselves for a playoff birth.
The Rockets started off hot scoring 30 points compared to just 18 by the Bobcats. They then scored just 20 in the second, but the Bobcats failed to make up much ground as they scored just 22. In the third, the Rockets came out firing and put the game away by outscoring the Bobcats 36-17. Scola who outscored all players in the contest led the Rockets. In the end, Scola scored 23 points. Dalembert contributed to the win with 10 rebounds while Dragic added 10 assists to lead the squad.
The Bobcats drop their record to a horrendous 6-35 mark this year. Away from home, the team is just 3-20 this season. The Bobcats performance was simply pathetic and has been all year. The Bobcats leading scorer had just 15 points in the game. Their leading rebounder was able to grab just 5 boards. This highlights the many dysfunctions of the Charlotte team. The team may be better off dressing Michael Jordan at this point. If anything, it would at least put people in the stands.
