Read this post-game interview of Yao Ming by Wang Meng of Titan Sports after the incredible win over Boston Celtics. Probably a telephone interview.

Yao says the same thing over and over after a win. We all know now, not to be to excited.

They win 1 game, and lose 4 games. Than come back and win another game...

Lets see how well they perform tonight.
