11.13: Jerry and Grant Postgame Wrap
Everything going the -- way down the stretch. They lost to lead by fiscal slight margin in the third quarter but they were able -- you know. This guy from weather the storm -- -- of whether -- school for that's exactly what. It was a and they really weren't playing him very well of the Rockets really had the momentum going but they hung in there and done in there and got a couple second chance points and maybe got a break from a -- -- -- here there and that's what you have to do nothing has not always going to go your way an awful lot of other real key here was with Renault the momentum was being -- Paul Westphal went to his fans brought in Ime Udoka. And I'm telling you that guy other than that -- the game without -- that they would not have known the game without you don't think he really settle this team down made no mistakes played solid defense and make shots. You know very key player in this -- especially the second half when the momentum. Switch -- if you talk about team basketball feel look at history Perry and during this winning streak you can't single out one player and you could -- 89 guys even a player like Kenny Thomas comes in tonight I'm not so sure they win without his country's -- they would have because defense when he really did change some things at the basket he got defense -- rebounds in a crowd no other they would have been an again. -- you know Paul Westphal has set I think is so so true you know he is basically substituting. By the gain. Not trying to establish some sort of -- I rotation -- That I some of the media types what I want to see you know planned by the numbers is like well tonight Kenny Thomas Jon Brockman. You know they play have a bigger role and they made the very next game depending on the situation but in this game. Boy it would it worked out exactly right I -- we look at the remarkable play of the game. The remarkable play of the game it. -- by rarely used and go there. Others and there are look at Beno and off the track. Critical critical possessions well. Sometimes you need to pass yourself -- -- pistol -- but -- thought about that Jason Thompson a career night the end of the 27 points but Jason. Was that just terrific. His athleticism and size. Just feel left and of course. You have that extra effort so Jason will find a way to penetrate the ball make him that the outside shots -- running the floor like he always does. A couple of easy baskets that way and that. Jason Thompson again. You know showing news second season now just make it real strides to move up the -- of the elite power forwards in this league and he is up movement up the -- Fail us moving up the ladder Tyreke seventeenth in -- real strong start to this game you know I refuse to penetrate early. Thing is -- Houston Rockets really focused. Plays a lot of different ways certainly has improved his outside shot or. Down the long ball made a couple of tonight. But I think I was impressed as much by the numbers he put up because he's been really focused their defense on time they tried different. Shane Battier Trevor reason to outstanding defenders long athletic guys to keep him out of the paint and he still. Got in their -- -- made two big shots down the stretch -- one was -- maybe a little -- off the -- but he made two big shots -- they would also -- -- he has the -- hands -- only a few turnovers in this game -- just he's just getting better and better -- taken care of the basketball making plays just -- your future we're just going over the -- for Aaron -- for an outside shot now the last -- really a little bit -- no question clock running down almost lost his balance -- -- -- pretty well. And he cannot goes glass metal thinking that -- -- itself out and you've got to get it up fair enough really I think. Probably around the league is people back -- may be watching some of -- -- he may have noticed that he really really good you know we talk about validation that's the one -- DePaul was -- -- during this win streak and here we -- tonight against -- five and -- he can't say well -- Golden State -- Memphis -- of the basketball team -- -- -- -- and I felt very good basketball team that just competes and plays hard plays within the strengths and and -- the kings let up a little -- -- got down about the the -- gone back in the third quarter we've seen that -- -- come from behind in the and the kings last year we get down and maybe left the game get away. Thought tonight they fought back scrapped through water around and there wasn't very pretty it's right but stuff found a way to keep -- and get the momentum back for you can see the confidence growing with this team and I he's gotta love their defense when they have to come up with stops there were able to do it they're able to get the rebounds this so fun. Africa just makes all the they're really struggling offensive find a way to get any kind of saved her basket by dale Landry. Donte -- taken on Shane Battier good defense stripped the ball now you don't have guns in their little double team. And look all the white shirts involved and forcing. Bad shot at the that's just what it takes to win -- extra effort everybody get involved.
