    Who are those guys on the right? Just some random Yao fans from China? That dude with the headband is hilarious. :laugh:

    Rockets are a very good defensive team... they play LB style of ball.
    I don't see anyone coming close to slowing Meow down.... his only nemisis has been his knack for turnovers lately.
    I'm not seeing a victory here unless Billups plays (he would dominate the matchup)

    Ben was so small but always played Yao very well. I think that if CWebb challenges Yao off the dribble, he can be negated through foul trouble.

    Yowser is 7'6", but only plays like a 7'2" guy because of his short arms. I guess that is still a problem for us, isn't it?

    Oh well, let him go off and contain everyone else. T-Mac/Yao can't be any harder than Kobe/Shaq.

    In the Dallas loss, the Pistons let the unknown factor hurt them and get off with Devin Harris scoring 22 points.

    Tonight they can't let Luther head do the same thing by slacking off and ignoring him.

    You know the Pistons..if they lose, usually some unsung hero has a career night against them.

    Go Pistons, play some D and don't get intimidated by Yao's presence in the middle.

    The Pistons have had to use Rip Hamilton to guard McGrady the last few times they've played Houston since Prince was getting lit up. Tay's been playing decent defense lately, but I'm not sure what he'll be able to do against a scorer of T-Mac's caliber.

    If Chauncey returns to the lineup it will be interesting to see how Flip and Fino can adjust to less playing time (probably with Flip back into the 12-15 minute range at the 1 and 2 and Carlos 10-12 minutes at the 3).

    It probably will come down to which team can hit their long jumpers.

    We have no chance to win as Houston keeps on winning recently especially after Yaoster's back.:yellowprison:

    funny thing is, t-mac sells more jerseys in china than yao.

    for the record, the Pistons have won six straight against the Rockets and nine of the last 11, including two in a row in Houston.

    Roscoe, that clip of the rox fans singing is classic stuff. I saw some highlichts of the rox last game and they did enuff to pull through with the win. One thing that surprised me was the accuracy at the line from yao... he was 12/13. How many centres in the league can you name shoot as well as he does? Lets see some tight pistons defence for a 93-90 win. :winner_first_h4h:

    If you know your fantasy stats then its no surprise. He is in a league of his own from the stripe really.

    Yao is 86.3%, while 2nd in FTA among C's
    Bosh, Amare, Pachulia, Okur, Ilgauskas and Brad Miller all shoot in the high 70's.

    I really like this Houston team. They seem to have let downs at times against the leagues top teams though, however, they beat the teams they should beat.

    Staying healthy is the key. Thay have a strong bench and the other Van Gundy is doing a very good coaching job through the injuries to Yao and T-Mac.

    Don`t be surprised if this team goes far in the West this post season.

    I sort of assumed there would be some sort of meaningful double-team on Yao.

    Player notes
    This was the first suit Ronald Dupree's worn all year that I didn't much like. This isn't the '70s anymore; I thought we'd realized that nobody can pull off that shade of green.

    Are you kidding? How could you stop watching after only a minute? You must have the willpower of a Saint. I watched it all the way through 3 times! :pound:
