Remember last season :) He couldn't even make it when he was open, right now it's easy even with Curry in front of him.

good win..Yao was extremly aggressive in the first half..he had 3 dunks worthy of top 10 plays..even got a nice stare at the crowd after that dunk on Malik Rose

Im disappointed in Wells though when he was in he jacked up unnecessary jumpers and didnt really add to the team when he wasn't scoring

Battier really needs to get his jumper back but i still like his defense

Rafer..what can i say..hes on my fantasy team..but 5 turnovers..only thing hurting me right now

Gotta catch this game on broadband. But looks like Yao bounced back and dominated the Knicks once again.

BOBCATS WIN IN BOSTON. OMG wow. anyway great win. rafer is the MIP . he's game has gone to another level under adelman. scola looks like a stud. he can easily be a 17-6 player in this league. what a pickup.

Yao was yao a great stud.

Yao was just utterly dominant. 36 points, 11 points, superb shooting and didn't turn the ball over. A lot of strong powerful moves to the basket. What a great game.

Scola and Alston chipped in very nicely. Alston with 20, 8 and 6 and Scola with 19. Hayes also had a quiet 13 rebounds, along with Battier with 5 blocks.

Good win on the road, liked the fight we showed after being up double digits, losing it, being down 6, only up 1 into the fourth and then end up winning by a convincing margin.

Rafer improves his floaters (remember reading an CHRON article that he works with the trainer on that)

Yea, check out his fg% comparison from last year and this year, last year 37.6% fg while 36.3% from 3 pointers, this year 40.2% fg and 30.9% from 3 pointers lol.

Good game guys, our team just flat out stinks, and Isiah refuses to change the starting lineup.

Nate and Lee are the only 2 guys playing, sad.

Yao is just turning into a beast, mentally that is, he's always been physically imposing and gifted, now he's got a bit of attitude to go along with it.

Rockets do seem to play better at home than away so far. So 5 home games in a row will be good.

Way to finish.

Might be the first time (correct me if I'm wrong) that Adelman played Scola in the 4th down the stretch - been a while coming for sure!

Today, instead of being subbed out for Yao, it was Hayes that took a seat. In fact, I think Scola might have played every minute of the 4th.

Hopefully a sign of things to come.

Arriba Scola! Vamos Luis!

I only missed Brooks and Wells. They're both not agressive enough, Brooks can really shoot. But with that speed he just has to drive, take to the basket, make layups, make guys open. I hope they will step up next game.

On the 5 home games, it will be the perfect opportunity to integrate Tmac. more home games mean less travelling and more time for practices to iron out the gitches.

Screw Yao's aggressiveness, the improvements in Rafer's game from borderline starter to legit starting PG, and Adelman's system. The real reason we have won these games is because of the man quoted above.

Seriously, don't put a goddamn sig up.

I have to say, Rafer is so, SO much better this year. He's playing like a top 15 point guard, and good for him.
