Video of injury's http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/recap?gameId=301106024 Did anyone predict this kind of season for them? some experts had them as sleepers to go far in the playoffs this year.


Then the Rockets (0-5), the only NBA team without a victory this season, gave the Spurs a few more.

Houston lost starters Aaron Brooks(notes) and Kevin Martin(notes) to left ankle sprains, then missed three 3-pointers in the frantic final seconds to let the Spurs escape with a 124-121 overtime victory Saturday night.

Tony Parker(notes) had 21 points and 14 assists for the Spurs, including seven points in overtime. Richard Jefferson(notes) added 22 points and was 4 of 5 from behind the 3-point line. And if San Antonio had managed to lose this one?

“We would be talking about it in three months, tomorrow, next week and in a month,” said Spurs guard Manu Ginobili(notes), who scored 28.

Forcing the Spurs to overtime without Brooks and Martin was of little consolation to the Rockets. Houston is off to its worst start since 1999, and left without knowing if it will have its starting backcourt available Sunday against Minnesota.
Brooks was hurt during an awkward landing after heaving an errant halfcourt shot at the halftime buzzer. X-rays were negative, and the Rockets said both Martin and Brooks would be re-evaluated Sunday.

With the Rockets already saving Yao for Sunday’s game against Minnesota, the injuries to Brooks and Martin left them without three starters for the final stretch. It almost didn’t matter.http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/recap?gid=2010110624

Why in the hell is the jerk(#20) trying to take a charge there. Seriously, a half court prayer right before halftime.

They have the right to swap picks, if they have a worse record then they won't. I wish they had given it to us though.

I think the more important thing is that they forced the Spurs in to OT with Brooks and Martin missing....

It's still early in the season but it obviously doesn't bode well for them.

do you know how bad that would tick off teams that truly need the rebuilding help? The Rox have PLENTY of talent. If luck decides to screw them a bit, that is different.
Besides, they will win over 40 games still. 0-5 sucks, but its not the end of the world

Now I feel really sorry for Houston. They are just too talented to be losing like this.

Despite their early-season troubles, I think the Rockets are still a pretty good team, they've just had some bad luck - losing a few close games, injuries...

The season opener @ LAL showed that they're a gritty group that plays hard, and I think they can remain competitive in the West. Fortunately, they got their first win tonight against Minnesota.

If the rockets keep struggling Yao might be made available.

Sour grapes all you want, but they aren't doing much this year anyways....I'm thinking they'll make a run IF they stay healthy and Yao hits his groove, but I see them as a 5-8 seed.

1-5 we will get better its just a matter of time. We have good backup point gaurds so i dont think it will hurt us that much
