Rockets/Lakers Game 1: Screw you, Mongolians!

Go away, Mongolians!  You are not knocking down our city wall!


Yao Ming overcomes a scary moment when he bangs knees with Kobe Bryant.  After a few tense minutes, Yao returns to the game and helps the Rockets put away the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 1.  Final score:  Rockets 100, Lakers 92.

Yao finishes with 28 points 10 rebounds and 2 blocked shots.  Most importantly, the Rockets win.  Los Angeles has no answer for Yao and Aaron Brooks.

The Great Wall stands tall.  Rockets 1, Lakers 0.
