I’m really bummed for all of Yao’s fans in New York who aren’t able to see him play tonight in the Rocket’s only game in The Big Apple this season. Damn. Yao tested his knee before the game, and the powers-that-be decided to give him a couple more days of rest before the Rockets’ next game against the 76ers on Wednesday.
I feel bad for guest contributor Ren Hsieh who bought tickets to see Yao play in the Garden tonight, but he’ll be filing a first-hand report of how the Rockets played. So far, Houston is doing fine, leading 58-55 at halftime.
