It's not often that the Rockets shoot under 40% and win comfortably, but that's what happened Saturday night.
Houston held the Nets to just 24 points total in the first half and cruised to an 83-71 win over the New Jersey Nets in the Compaq Center.
Steve Francis and Cuttino Mobley combined for 35 points while Yao Ming had a rough shooting night (4-13), but finished with 12 points, 10 boards and 4 blocks.
It's worth noting also that there was an "over 40%" breakthrough for Eddie Griffin, who hit 5-11 shots for 11 points and 9 boards.
The Rockets held Jason Kidd to 3-12 shooting for just 6 points and 4 assists.
