Fun facts of the game:
1. It was the first time ever I saw a ref flew into stands, and nobody from in the stands tried to help;
2. JR sprained his ankle lightly in 2nd quarter, by falling into a bunch of cheerleaders;
3. Tmac was scoreless in 2nd half untill less than 4 minutes left in regulation;
4. Troy Murphy, the GS's leading rebounder, only collected 2 rebounds in more than 40 minutes of play.

First game thread done by me and we had such a nerve wreaking game. Anyway, we got a win and it show the team played with heart and never admit losing until the final minute. Great WIN!

if you subtract 2 points for every foul, and 1 rebound for every TO, this is the first genuine 20/10 game Yao has had this season.

Also, I think it's the first time Yao has led the team in points in a win.

Downside of this game:
1. The PF position stunk tonight. JH and SS played 37 minutes on the court, but only had 6pt, 6rb, 1blk, and 6 fouls combined. Compare that to Deke's contribution------5pt, 5rb, 3blk in just 11 minutes of play;
2. the backcourt must improve their ball handling skill and play with a clear head. Martyn lost the ball out of bounds under 2 minutes, and DW's stupid play with less than 7 seconds left in regulation could potentially cause rox a L;
3. Head at this stage is best suited for a catch-n-shoot role. He at times tries to creat his own shot too much and is heistant to pass when shot clock is winding down. His lack of experience at this level, and a height disadvantage should keep him out of much of ballhandling, other than bring the ball upcourt.
4. DW has lost at least one and half step on defense, and unless his man is trying to post up, his inability to cut opponent off is hurting rox.

You're right. Other than 3 times in preseason, Yao and Tmac both scored 25pts in the win against Hawks.

Looks to me like Yao's scars healing nicely
