Should be a humdinger. Rockets are missing 3 starters (if you count Sura) and have lost 3 in a row. The Mavericks on the other hand have won 5 straight and Dirk is getting solid contributions from the supporting cast. Yao can do what he wants, but the bottomline is we aren't coming close to winning this one unless we get a huge game from Head or Wesley... or a miracle game from Anderson. I'm pretty sure Josh Howard is capable of guarding Swift at times, so we can't try to get Dirk in early foul trouble by asking Swift to attack the basket.

But hey, atleast we have the Dirk stopper! Hopefully the Rockets keep this one close and feed it to Yao down the stretch. Would be a huge W for this team without McGrady and Alston.

Looking good early on - Luther with 9 points already!!

It's down the stretch that I'm worried about though, but positive signs early on

Yao Ming with 13 after the 1st Q!! But picked up 2nd foul already...

Don't wanna be pessimistic but something tells me Yao won't be nearly productive in the 2nd half and we'll end up giving this one away, again. Pleeeeease prove me wrong...

I remember in his 2nd season,he also got 12 pts (5/5) in the 1st Q,I thought it would be a 30 pts game for him,but he only added 8 pts in the last 3 Qs. :angel:

Head playing as expected, should've started from day 1. What worries me is how slow JVG is to make adjustments during games (offensively), and make changes in the lineup as well (less minutes for DA, more for Head). This team seems to be coming together for the time being, if we can have some breaks fall our way (Dallas can't seem to hit a FT) and keep feeding Yao, this could be a comprehensive victory.
