‘Must-See’ NBA Game For November 5th: Tracy McGrady, Yao Ming, Luis Scola, & Houston Rockets Versus Dallas Mavericks

This season, Mike James and Bonzi Wells have looked great. But the addition of Luis Scola interests me. The Argentine gives Houston a legitimate four-man. He could develop into Yao’s Otis Thorpe, a blue-collar, glue guy, who does all the little things …

NBA schedule for November 5th, 2007

  • Houston @ Dallas.

Our pick as tonight’s ‘Must-See’ game: Houston @ Dallas.

Why: One game is scheduled for this evening. Do not despair hoop fans, the Rockets and Mavericks will entertain.

Houston have been impressive this season. Their defense is still stingy, but there’s more freedom, creativity, and movement on offense. Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming have led the charge, but don’t overlook the Rockets’ new supporting cast.

Through three games, Mike James and Bonzi Wells have looked great. And the addition of international star Luis Scola fascinates me. The Argentine finally gives Houston a legitimate four-man. He will become Yao’s Otis Thorpe, a blue-collar, glue guy, who does all the little things.

Meanwhile, Josh Howard has returned from his two-game suspension, so Dallas are back at full strength. This year, the Mavericks have changed their starting line-up. Devin Harris is in as point guard, while Jason Terry is now coming off the bench.

The reasoning here is simple: Harris is a natural table-setter, Terry is an instant-offense combo guard. But will this move be enough to help Dallas finally win an NBA Title?
