Rockets Burn Out Heat!

The Houston Rockets tonight went up against a young and talented Miami Heat team that is on the rise in the NBA. The Game tonight was pretty much all Rockets due to the great ball team work and once again the passing to the open spots on the floor. Yao Ming tonight was PERFECT!!! going 12-12 from the floor for 26 points and 10 rebounds Yao was pretty much unstoppable making moves to the basket and pulling up for 15 foot jump shots. The game for Yao is alot easier when the team moves the ball around and makes there opponent guessing and making them switch defenders making guys like Haslem stick on Yao instead of Magloire. Rafer Alston is also starting to come to his own again like he did last year when the Rockets had there 22 game win streak making shots from 3 point land and using his floater! Rafer tonight finished with 22 points and 2 assist. Von had another nice quiet game scoring 17 points out of 7-18 shooting. The Heats main two guys had good games for Miami Wade had his Wade numbers going for 29 points and 9 assist and Shawn Marrion had 20 points and 10 rebounds but it wasn't enough for Miami as they go down in Houston 93-86. The Rockets next game will be Monday VS the Denver Nuggets at 1pm due to MLK day.
