On the Rockets' 22-game winning streak, the second longest in league history:
"What Houston has done has been phenomenal. Without Yao Ming the Rockets have had to rely on ball movement, motion and screens to get open looks—but they are getting them. That offense is running so crisply it's scary. Pressure isn't being put on Tracy McGrady (right) either; in the first half of Sunday's win over the Lakers, he didn't score a point and Houston had a 15-point lead. I can see the Rockets going into a shooting funk eventually, and points are going to be tough to come by. But the way they play defense, even if they only score 85 points, they can still win games."
