The Yao Line 01.22.08: Still Squeaking By

38:33 min | 30 pts | 12-19 FGs | 6-9 FTs | 17 rebs | 3 blks | recap

Another ugly one. Not to much to say here, only caught the tail-end of this one, but the Rockets inability to finish strong is still a problem. It's not going to happen overnight but it has to start somewhere. There was no better place than Seattle... or Philadelphia for that matter. T-Mac, again, looked good off the bench, making some clutch plays and getting Yao looks the other Rockets just can't--and vice versa. Might this line-up work down the line?

On the bright side, it was a huge statistical night for Yao. Fantasy owners rejoice! That means you, Train. Hope trading Marion for Yao isn't the worst move you ever made. Add Collison to the poster list.
