Default I hate the rockets.

In NBA 2k8. I play on Hall of Fame and the rockets give me fits. Honestly. It's either they throw it into yao and he backs in for an easy 2, or I double team him and they kick it out to a shooter and he nails a 3. I don't even try to go guard the shooter any more. They make the 3s EVERY TIME. Any suggestions? (I play as the lakers in association with no major lineup changes, except lamar odom for ron artest).

Default Re: I hate the rockets.

lol everytime i play my friend he uses the rockets and i either use the cavs or the lakers, but anyway just let yao get his and play defense yourself on t-mac. don't double anyone or else that'll leave rafer or battier open for 3 . also use someone about t-macs height to d him up . for instance when i use the cavs szczerbiak is supposed to defend him, and i quickly switch lebron to defend him . and yao gets tired really easily which is why i really just leave him alone and let him score , he'll be out of the game eventually and as long as you've been locking down t-mac he should be cold by that time .

Rockets are tough to beat.

I usually get my biggest player and try to take Yao out of the game. Let the CPU cover T-Mac and help on anything going towards the rim.
