Charlotte Bobcats vs. Houston Rockets preview -- Game 10

Game Overview:

I don't really know what to make of this Rockets team. Kyle Lowry may not be a household name, but he's one of the best young point guards in the league. He can shoot, has great court vision and is a triple-double threat any day of the week. But he's day-to-day on a bruised foot right now, so we'll find out soon whether he'll play against the Bobcats. In his stead, the Rockets are getting by with Goran Dragic, the speedy Euro guard and former Phoenix Sun, who can score in bunches. Kevin Martin starts at SG and is a sharpshooter. In fact, the Rockets have a good bit of scorers in the lineup, including Chase Budinger, Luis Scola. The problem is their best defender is Samuel Dalembert, who is in fact, only one person.

Key Matchup: Gerald Henderson vs. Kevin Martin - In Houston's two wins, Kevin Martin has scored 25 points or more, including an astounding 10-18 from behind the arc. If he's scoring like he can, Martin can help the Rockets put a strain on most defenses with their inside and outside play with Scola.

Oh man, Anthony Randolph.
