Rockets Road Sweep

The Rockets (38-25) keep creeping up on the Mavericks. The Mavs (41-21) have kept a slight lead in the Southwest Division. But, the Rockets are not taking it lightly. We won the last four on the road; in other words we swept those fools with their foolishness!

The team high was taken by Tracy McGrady (no surprise) with 20 points. Yao Ming added 14 points and 15 rebounds. The final score came out to 97-94. The Mavericks pushed hard to regain a foothold on the game, but the Rockets stayed strong.

"It's a great road trip. Too many teams in this league can't say they went out west and won four in a row. There's some pretty top teams in this league. It's hard to win in this league and it's hard to win on the road. It wasn't pretty for us tonight but we'll take it and we'll go home and play with some confidence at home."
- Tracy McGrady

Juwan Howard added in 18 points, but he had to leave the game in the fourth quarter due to a sprained right knee.
