He certainy does. The Rockets did a much better job at passing him the ball by changing the angle of the entry pass and he did well to catch it. There was one play where he cut from the top of the key to the baseline, receive the ball from Artes, turn over his left shoulder for a hook shot. They need to do things like that more to beat the fronting defense.

The Rockets have won a game 4 for the 1st time in 6 years. Hopefully that will be the key now to them winning the series.


Not 6 years. They had lost Game 4 in the past 6 playoffs they managed to get in, meaning it could be more than 10 years .....The Rockets did not get into the playoff the year before they drafted Yao Ming, and ever since he joined the Rockets, the Rockets missed the playoff twice.

3 chances to close out the series. Let's see if they can do it. In my view, they should treat it as they only have one chance, which is the next game. I know it won't be easy, but they have to treat the game 5 as game 7.

Game 5 will be extremely tough to win. However the Rockets are a showing a lot of mental toughness. The game 1 win would have given them a lot of confidence to go there and close out the series.

its rox first time trying to eliminate an opponent so everyone needs to play like its the end. i only wish artest or brooks would play smarter and stop jacking up bad shots or dribble too much.

Artest has play really well in the series. He's playing some tough defense and he has been under control most of the series.

Brooks is the player that is out of control and need to understand how to get Yao the ball.

Wafer is the player that has given the Rockets such a boost of the bench. He has been frustrating at times but you can fault his confidence the lift he provides the Rocket. He made two huge plays to start the 4th quarter, dishing to Yao for a dunk and hit the corner 3. The Rockets MUST keep Wafer IMO. He is only going to grow and get better.
