The Rockets are making a playoff run with huge contributions from two of their rookies. And there's been a Brandan Wright sighting in Golden State. Here are my latest observations on the top rooks:
• Al Horford made "2 plays" against the Celtics on Sunday, using his left hand to block a Rajon Rondo shot, then racing the floor to dunk an alley-oop pass over Ray Allen. There are no signs of fatigue from Horford, who was taking his game to another level at this time last season when he helped Florida win its third straight SEC tournament.
