So a disastrous 0 ~ 5 start to the season after a defiant display of hearts and guts but a heart-breaking overtime loss to San Antonio Spurs, with Aaron Brooks and Kevin Martin both crashed out in injuries.

And after a tight and energy-sapping over time loss, the Rockets have to play again versus the Minnesota Timberwolves at Toyota Centre.

It seemed like Kevin Martin's sprained ankle was not too bad, and he was benched just for precaution purposes. But Aaron Brooks, even though X-Ray results were negative, might have to sit out for at least 2 to 3 weeks.

So with Aaron Brooks and Kyle Lowry down, Ishmael Smith will have to start for this game. It's unknown who will stand in as the back-up point guard. Maybe Courtney Lee, but it all depends on whether Kevin Martin could play.


If they could just put in the same kind of never-say-die and never-give-up spirit as in the game with San Antonio Spurs, maybe they could finally get their first win of the season.

GO GO GO ROCKETS !!!!

This game could get UGLY!

Brooks out!

Lowry out!

KMart - game time decision

Yao - 1/2 a game

Rox could still beat the hapless Wolves, but wouldn't bet on it!

It's almost a must win game for them, I can't imagine they go 0-6 to start the season.

This season is farked. The Rockets caught the NETS2009 syndrome.

Yao Ming played 5 minutes or so; had 2 shot attempts; got blocked once; scored 1 basket; got 2 fouls; now benched.

2 points (1/2 FG%)/2 rebounds/2 fouls.

15 ~ 10 Rockets lead.

Houston Rockets now leads 82 ~ 57 at the 5 minute mark of 3Q.

Yao Ming played for close to 17 minutes in this game so far. He played 9 minutes or so in 2Q, and then a couple more in 3Q before resting.

NOT SURE WHETHER the Rockets will further risk him, now that this is going to be a blown-out win.

Yao Ming scored 13 points (3/5 FG% 7/7 FT%)/4 rebounds/1 assist/1 block shot, and set the tune for the blown-out win in 2Q.
