Game #81: Houston Kevin Martin’s (Rockets) at Kings

Okay you know I don’t exactly object to the Kevin Martin trade. Tonight, I hope he gets very loud cheers from the crowd (booing or not cheering is not an option tonight). Having said that, game on. It is the last home game of the season, and tomorrow is the season finale (against the Lakers in LA).

The Rockets play at the 8th fastest pace, are 16th in offensive efficiency and 17th in defensive efficiency. Sacramento is 7th in pace, 20th in defensive efficiency, and 22nd in offensive efficiency.

The Matchup’s of the night will be Aaron Brooks/Kevin Martin vs Tyreke Evans/Beno Udrih. Whoever wins this matchup wins the game.

Carl Landry must score well against his former team (and Luis Scola) as he did in Houston. JT must win his matchup against Chuck Hayes too.

For a Houston perspective, read The Dream Shake or Red94.

Game is at 7pm PST, TV is CSNCA, and Radio is 1140. Enjoy!

UPDATE: Paul Westphal’s option was picked up for the 2011-12 season. More on what this means later. (As is in later tonight or tomorrow.) H/T to Vfettke.

UPDATE 2: Sam Amick talks to PW about it on a piece for Fanhouse. H/T Aykis.
