Dec 19: Rockets 107, Kings 96Posted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports: Now in his second season, Luis Scola is more comfortable in the NBA. It’s starting to show. The durable forward from Argentina had his seventh double-double of the season with 23 points and 10 rebounds to help the Rockets beat Sacramento 107-96 on Friday night… Yao Ming scored 11 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter, Tracy McGrady scored 18 and Carl Landry added 11 rebounds for the Rockets, who’ve won six straight at home. John Salmons scored 26 and Brad Miller added 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Kings. Sacramento has lost four of its last six and dropped to 1-2 since Kenny Natt replaced fired coach Reggie Theus on Monday… Yao went 11-for-13 from the field, and 8-for-9 from the free-throw line to reach 30 points for the second straight game.
