Dwight Howard gets everything his way overall. He pushed Battier and Wells for his rebounds. Rockets can't win with bs fouls called against Yao. I mean how much more can these refs **** up? Refs need to be penalized when calling more than 3 bad calls a game. Rockets barely won this 1.

Maybe if they have Adonal in there we should have Yao in there too on that last play.

Quality win. Yao outplayed Howard tonight.


Yao not in there so we can switch everything on defense

Yeah imo thats why you count the basket and go to OT , we can get screwed this way if they are wrong but they get screwed more not getting the basket if it counted.

Yao dominated the 1st and 4th quarters and frankly stepped up to the challenge and outplayed Dwight.

Alston was fantastic, 20 points, efficient shooting and the GW. Scola and Brooks came in and changed the pace as well.

Finally we got a break, but can't rest since we play tomorrow.

At least NY will be on a back 2 back as well.

Brooks and Alston are awesome. I don't think Francis or James will be Rockets for much longer.

The last tip basket may be should be coutned but the 2pt lost when they call a BS foul on Yao while Head going for the layup is so lamed that I don't feel sorry for the Magic.

I think Francis we will keep , he has no value and his contract is low anyway.
I hope we can get rid of Mike James , god I was wrong about this guy , but we will get an equally bad player with a bad contract for him , no one will give us something good.

That's quite an incredible call. I missed that play. All you can do is shake your head. I hope the Rockets are recording these and sending them to the league office.

Oh well, we got a big break at the end so I suppose it cancels out.

The refs are a joke plain and simple.
