Rockets Beat the Knicks! (Again)

And prediction one is true! And on Friday night prediction two will come true as well. Then we are out of the prediction business for a few days anyway.

Four games in a row and another dominant performance by Yao:

And another domination of this guy:

He also only played 26 minutes and 2 of those points came while unguarded in the last minute of the game. Isn't Yao the one that people think doesn't have stamina? Yao, played 32 minutes by the way kicking ass and taking names.

Yao dunked 6 times in this game, I'm pretty sure that makes him awesome.

This post would not be complete without a mention of Rafer Alston. And it's a positive mention. Borderline great game by Rafer. Coming home I thought he might try and shoot 85 times, but all but one of his shots was completely in the flow of the offense. He also had 6 assists, 3 rebounds and 2 steals. Again, solid night. The 4 turnovers were tough, but only 1 was completely inexcusable, and I'll take that.

Good game for Luis Scola as well. The Rockets needed someone to step up other than Yao in the second half with 19 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals.

Overall, a good game for the Rockets. Final 101-92
