NBA News - SCOLA On Fire But Spurs Win

San Antonio Spurs 90 Houston Rockets 84

The Rockets were pretty much in an uncertain situation before this game as they were without their ace Tracy McGRADY who was out injured. Much depends on how YAO Ming is going to cope all by himself.

This is where somebody needs to step up be counted and that someone is non other than Luis SCOLA.
From the beginning this was a game not to be missed in which SCOLA had some company in the other end, Manu GINOBILI and Fabricio OBERTO.

Before this game, SCOLA has been averaging 3.9 points, but tonight he was perfect in the first half making all six shots for 12 points. In the end he was the Rockets best performer of the night with 20 points and 4 rebounds.

However Spurs manage to contain the T-MACless Rockets with another brilliant performance from Manu, as he posted 19 points, 9 rebounds, a game high 7 assists, 1 steal and 1 block shot.

OBERTO's responsibility was reduced to defensive as he was at YAO and SCOLA's face for most of the occasion, forcing them to commit fouls and only managing 4 rebounds and 1 steal.

Now I'm wondering is Rockets coach Rick ADELMAN finally believes that SCOLA does deserve a spot in the starting 5.

Toronto Raptors 110 Indiana Pacers 101

Carlos DELFINO saw action for the Raptors, as Toronto improve to a 5-4 record in the league. DELFINO posted 11 points plus an assist, steal and block shot.

Gracias "anónimo". Lo increíble es que esto lo empecé yo (que soy argentino), pero el que le está poniendo más pilas es John, que es de Malasia!!!! Gracias por visitar el blog. Ojalá te tengamos por acá bastante seguido. Un abrazo.

Now John...that was a message to congratulate the job we are doing following Argentines all over the World.

And I wanted to tell you that I did watch that match and I was so pleased to see SCOLA showing what he can do for the Rockets in the first real chance he had to prove himself. It seemed like he could do no wrong last night! I hope he keeps it up (I know he will) and I would love if his manager gives him more playing minutes. Him and YAO could be a serious low-post combination. Maybe one of the best in the league.
