The Rockets lost a tough one in Indianapolis, 107-102, to one of the worst teams in the Eastern Conference. It was a game they should have won. I’ll be watching it on my DVR later tonight and I’ll file a report a later.
The Rockets’ chances of winning it would have been higher if Yao hadn’t hurt his knee right in the first half. He tried to warm it up at halftime, but everyone thought it would be best to rest it and get it checked out. X-rays were negative and he’s officially listed day-to-day, which is good news. So just when you thought “The Big 3” would be on the court for Sunday’s game, Yao gets hurt. Typical for the kind of year the Rockets have been having on the injury front this season.
