By the time I made this thread, the Houston Rockets had wrapped up their training/preparation in Toyota Centre yesterday (October 22) and had left Houston for Sacramento for their last preseason game.

Rafer Alston would not be travelling to Sacramento; but when asked if Steve Francis will get minutes in this game, Rick Adelman rejected the idea and said Steve Francis is not yet ready.

Tracy McGrady will probably start tomorrow in this last preseason game, even though Rick Adelman was not satisfied with his form and condition. In yesterday's team practice, Rick Adelman even had to spend time to give Tracy McGrady an extra walk-through session.

On the other hand, Shane Battier went through a MRI test and results revealed that inflammation on his knee had subsided, and he was cleared to step up his rehabilitation training.

8 minutes played.....Rockets leading 23 ~ 18.

Tracy McGrady played very rusty and hesitant..... 1 unforced turnover and 2/3 so far with 4 points.

Yao Ming was 2/2 so far with 4 points.

Ron Artest was the highest scorer, 1 3-pointer and 3/4 FT% for 6 points.

Yao Ming twisted and injured his feet after deflected a shot and leaped to grab a rebound towards the end of 1Q. Now went back to rest room for treatment.

1Q ended. 32 ~ 25 Rockets leading.
