Yao back in action; Rockets win another preseason game

After sitting out Wednesday’s game against Memphis, Yao Ming was back in the lineup Friday night against Sacramento.

Yao scored 15 points in 26 minutes, hitting 7-of-11 from the floor. But shockingly, he only made 1-of-5 free throws. He left the game in the fourth quarter after tweaking his ankle, but he’ll be fine.

Meanwhile, Ron Artest played well against his former team, scoring 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting. He also had 3 steals and two assists.

Aaron Brooks had a fantastic game, scoring 23 points since he got more minutes (42) than normal because Tracy McGrady sat out to rest his sore right knee. Brooks made 7-of-16 field goals, including 4-of-8 from 3-point land.
