NBA News - No YAO, No T-Mac But Got Scola

Houston Rockets 103 Seattle Supersonics 80

Rockets prove that the rest of the gang was as good as their dominant duo and always ready to step up in their absence.

Especially for Luis SCOLA, as he manage to collect another double-double performance with 13 points, 12 rebounds along with 4 assists, 1 steal & 2 block shots.

“It was a huge victory for us,” SCOLA said. “If we lose Phoenix and Utah and everybody is going to get over us, we would lose home-court advantage and it would make things much more difficult.”

San Antonio Spurs 79 Phoenix Suns 96

Once again, Spurs struggle against a what could be potential Western Conference team that could challenge their supremacy.

More worrying for me is that Manu has been a little bit down in his recent performance. Saving the best for the play-offs maybe?

“It’s turned into a concern because that’s three games we really struggled offensively,” Manu said. “We didn’t score more than 80 this weekend. The main concern is offensively. We’re just not sharp enough. We’re not making shots. We’re playing too slow. So we’ve got to work on that.”

Tonight he was only able to post 8 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal & a block shot.

Fabricio OBERTO was better compare to his performance, posting 6 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists & 1 block shot.

Toronto Raptors 111 Milwaukee Bucks 93

The Raptors keep strengthen their position for home court advantage in the East. Carlos DELFINO, coming from the bench, manages to post 4 points, 2 rebounds & 2 assists.

Philadelphia 76ers 101 Detroit Pistons 94

Never mind of this defeat as the Pistons are safe and sound at second post in the Eastern Conference. A rare run by Walter HERRMANN saw him shooting one down town towards the end of the game.

Orlando Magic 115 Chicago Bulls 83

Nothing to say except for the Andres NOCIONI posted 7 points, 5 rebounds & an assist.

i underestimated shaq. the spurs lost a critical game, but what's important now is to keep the whole team intact. Manu needs to rest. Tim Duncan and the rest of the Spurs have to double their efforts to win the next games, which will be against the sonics, lakers, kings, and jazz.
