MONDAY, 1/16/06 – I have a dream that one day…the Rockets will have all their players back, make the playoffs this season, and shock the world by winning a couple of playoff series.
That dream is a stretch after seeing Houston lose 94-83 to Atlanta, a team that is now 10-26 with the worst record in the league. The Rockets aren’t too far behind with a 12-24 record.
If there was ever a game the Rockets could win without six players injured, this was going to be it. The Hawks were playing their fifth game in 7 days. They had lost four in a row. But unfortuntately, the Rockets were without T-Mac for the fourth game in a row, resulting in Houston losing its sixth straight. The Rockets are now 0-12 without T-Mac.

The good news is that Yao, who has missed 13 games in a row because of the surgery he had on his big toe, may be back in action in about two weeks.
