Incremental progress. Through each workout, practice, or game, that is the goal of Rockets head coach Jeff Van Gundy. The Rockets are indeed showing progress, albeit at a snail-like pace, these last four games. The Rockets managed to find their shooting touch Tuesday night but still left Dallas empty-handed as the Mavericks claimed a 102-93 victory before a sell-out crowd of 20,304 at American Airlines Center.

The Rockets started off the game in fine fashion, racing out to a 21-14 lead thanks to the play of Luther Head and Yao Ming. With Tracy McGrady (back strain) and Rafer Alston (right leg fracture) watching from the sidelines, Head and Yao combined for 22 points in the fourth quarter. Yao did his damage by getting to the free-throw line early and often, hitting 7-8 from the charity stripes. Head did most of his work from behind the 3-point arc, hitting 2-2 from downtown. Houston also started the game outrebounding Dallas 10-0 to start the contest, which was the primary cause for a 27-19 Rockets lead heading into the fourth quarter.
