Yao joins his teammates on the bench for the first time since having toe surgery a few weeks ago.  With Yao cheering them on, it looked like the Rockets were going to snap their losing streak, but their shots didn't fall in the fourth quarter, and they lost 86-80.Yao joins his teammates on the bench for the first time since having toe surgery a few weeks ago.

SATURDAY, 1/14/06 – The Rockets continue to not execute down the stretch when it counts. They held a lead for most of their game against the Hornets Saturday night, but were then outscored 18-6 at the end of the fourth quarter to lose their fifth straight, 86-80, and their sixth straight at home.

Other than the Hornets beating Houston for the fourth time in a row, there is really nothing else worth reporting for this game except Yao was able to sit with his teammates now that he is cleared to wear a shoe over his big toe. Before, he couldn’t sit on the bench because the NBA dress code requires injured players to wear shoes.

As you can tell, I have decided to file very brief reports while Yao and T-Mac are out. Even I have my limits to the amount of pain I am willing to endure covering these guys.
