Why are the undersized Rockets off to a 4-1 start in the super-sized Western Conference? Because of their powerful one-two punch in the backcourt. Houston's starting guards -- Steve Francis and Cuttino Mobley -- are combining for 43.2 ppg, 14.4 rpg, 10.0 apg and 3.6 spg. The Rockets try to build on their stellar start tonight when they host the injury-depleted 76ers (9 p.m. ET, TNT).
and inside the preview :
WHO TO WATCH: Houston simply has the best all-around backcourt in the league in Steve Francis and Cuttino Mobley. The guards are not only playing huge minutes and averaging a combined 43.2 points, they're also rebounding like big men; the 6-3 Francis and 6-4 Mobley grab 14.4 boards a game -- only New Jersey's Jason Kidd and Kerry Kittles are close to that number, teaming for 12.3 per night.
Love is good!
