What a great game Tuesday night between the Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Lakers. Yao had a double-double and Shane Battier, the absolute unsung hero of Houston, made a huge game-winning three-pointer way out of position with 2.5 seconds left on the clock. The Rockets win a road season opener for the first time in a very long time, and looked great running the Adelman Offense as well. Bummer that Kobe trade talk overshadowed so much of the game, but when it was all about basketball, it was beautiful to watch.
