No team in this years playoffs is more underrated then the Houston Rockets. The Rockets play tonight against the Portland Trailblazers and every sportswriter outside oh Houston has Portland taking the series. The Rockets have nothing to lose, based on the fact that losing their All-Star Tracy Mcgrady and the trade of Rafer Alston spelled disaster. But they added key sixth man Von Wafer, who is instant offense, and Kyle Lowry who is a tough point guard the Rockets have missed since Sam Cassell(a long time ago). Look for the Rockets to keep Brandon Roy under wraps and stifle LaMarcus Aldridge with Carl Landry and Chuck Hayes. This series is the Trailblazeres to lose, they have home-court and even Greg Oden is healthy. If Yao is officiated fairly(a big doubt) then the Rockets will have an easy path to the second round where they are likely to face the L.A. Lakers, who wont be looking foward to Ron Artest and Shane Battier smothering Kobe Bryant. This of course would be the upset of the playoffs and piss off David Stern who wants a Cavs-Lakers Finals so bad he can taste it. In the end the Rockets will at least move past the first round for the first time in 10 years and thats all Houston wants.
