Yao injured in 98-93 loss to Clippers

Blogged under Front Page by Nothing but Net on Tuesday 26 December 2006 at 3:31 pm

Losing Yao with a fractured bone under his right knee is a shocking blow to this team.  He went down after playing only 6 minutes on Saturday and he will now miss at least the next 6 weeks.  Shane Battier really stepped up in this game as he scored 28 points and grabbed 6 rebounds.  Luther Head added 22 points.  Rafer Alston had a solid game with 21 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists.

The Rockets fell to 16-11 on the season with this loss.

Why us?

Ok first of all TMac should be in his prime right now not his descent. But we all see how that is going, then Yao gets his leg snapped by his own player. Chuck Hayes has now brought down Shaq and Yao, who else can say they have stopped those two? It is just soo sad to see all our potential and talent go right down the drain for another year. What did we ever do to upset the basketball gods?

Luther Head steppin up

Blogged under Front Page,Steppin Up by Nothing but Net on Tuesday 19 December 2006 at 4:51 am

With Tracy McGrady’s back acting up, the Rockets needed someone to step up their play and Luther Head is responding.  Head is a great shooter as he’s hit 49.5% of his 3-point attempts so far this season.  He’s averaging 11.0 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game so far this season.  His numbers are skewed a little bit because early in the year he was coming off the bench.  The Rockets need Head to keep playing well so that defenses can’t collapse their defense on Yao.
