Yao Ming - Houston wins 11th straight

by james on February 23rd, 2008

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

Yao Ming practicing his new victory dance with team and referees

How can this be?

It is a reach even for 7′ 6″ Yao Ming to win 11 in a row.

Tracy McGrady playing consistently good?

Houston even trades two players away, do not suit up the guy they get and still keep winning!

How can this be?

Well, admittedly, most of the teams they beat were pretty bad teams, but they did just knock off Chris Paul and the Hornets (sounds like a 60’s rock group) and there were a couple of close scrapes with the Cleveland PreWallace LeBrons led by Cavalier LeBron James, which the Rockets managed to pull out.

Still… They are winning!

And get this, they have not lost in February and finish the month with games against the Big Ben-less Bulls, the Wizards minus Agent Zero, and the Pau-less Grizzlies (get it, paw-less Grizzlies, ok, bad joke).

Sounds like 3 more wins and an undefeated month to me.

Side Note: Your intrepid author was pretty harsh on Houston a while back and is currently flogging himself.

It seems the Rockets are worthy.

When both Yao and T-Mac are on, they are pretty hard to beat. In fact, they will kill you from inside and out.

But there is a new element developing and we will have to see if it stays when they play the better clubs.

The Rockets have held eight of their last nine opponents under 90 points. source

Coach Rick Adelman is trying to get this team to take small steps towards being a top team. Right now they are in a dog fight to just make the playoffs.

“I told the team, ‘You put yourself in position to make a move,’ ” coach Rick Adelman said. “It’s our season to make what we want to make of it. Are we going to take advantage of what we’ve done to get to this point? We’ve gotten back into the whole thing. Or are we going to go up and down?” source

Hard to complain right now. Winning can breed a certain level of confidence that will improve your play once the big boys come into town.

Learning to defend your home court is almost essential.

These are the lessons the Rockets learn as they feed off of Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming.

7 opinions for Yao Ming - Houston wins 11th straight

    man i don’t have an idea wt is going to happen to rockets
    but i think they will make the playoffs and either it will be golden state, Dallas, or Utah that would have to go home
    the thing with Houston is that they play good, have a good system with rick adelman, but they are not used to the system
    for example: Lakers and its bench is used to phil jackson’s system, and i think it is very important for players to actually have a system
    for example: dallas has no style, all they do is put the ball in the bucket and play good enough defence, celtics are identical to dallas the only difference is that they have KG, who gives them post presence,
    now the pheonix suns had a system of run up and down but now since shaq has come they have been out of dat system and paid the price by loosing two out of three since his arrival.
    cleveland is going no where,
    the elite teams in my mind are san antonio spurs, lakers, detroit pistons, anddd no one else.

    Rizzy, break it down, break it down.
    It does appear Houston will move up the ladder. Adelman can coach.
