If you guys can win this, the Grizzlies move into a tie for 5th place in the Midwest, and the 6th playoff spot overall. I don't do it often, but I'm rooting for you guys to win this one handily.

Rockets up 3 at the half...Giricek misses a layup that could've cut it to 1.:upset:

I don't have stats to back this up, but the Rockets have a helluva winning pct. when Yao has a good offensive game. Forget Francis and Mobley - when Yao dominates, Rockets win :worship:
Good luck containing Yao in the 2nd half :D

Good luck containing Andrew "The Hammer" DeClerq in the second half. He's due to explode for a monster game after about 5 years of mediocre ones.

37 and 10 for Yao....wow, he was awesome tonight.


On a positive note, there was a Reece Gaines sighting!

Orlando gives up another career night, this time to a good player in Yao.

Most telling stat, at one point, I think late in the 3rd, they showed the plus/minus for Tmac ... +2 in the game, -14 out of the game.

How about this telling stat:

Andrew DeClercq's heavily productive 23 minutes of Action: 2 Points(0-2 FG) 1 Rebound, 4 Fouls, 1 Turnover, terrible defense that allowed Yao to have a career night.

On a side note, Keith Bogans left with an injured quad, though it doesn't appear to be serious, he should play the Magic's next game against the Cavs, where LeBron James will also make his return.
