Yao Ming dominates but Rockets lose to MavsPosted by Inside Hoops
Yao Ming finished with 30 points, a season-high 15 rebounds and a season-best six blocked shots. Yao, who has had at least three blocks in seven of his 12 games this season, posted his first 30-15 game of the season. Yao also scored at least 30 points in a game in which his counterpart, Gana Diop, was held scoreless. Erick Dampier also played 10:21 off the bench in tonight’s game without registering a point. Yao did this previously against Diop when he scored 36 points vs. Dallas (3/15/06), while the Dallas starting center did not register a point in that contest.
