16...AND 1!

That expression on Skip's face says it all. After tonight's sound drubbing of the Mavs, the Rockets win streak now sits and a franchise long 17 wins in a row. Before any of you detractors say it, let me knock you down. No, Nowitski wouldn't have made much of a difference. The Mavs were definitely not the team that went toe-to-toe with the Kobe's on Sunday, but even with Dirk, they would've failed to stop the momentum train that is Dem Rockets, baby!
With Yao out for the rest of the season, and the scoring focus shifted entirely to T-Mac, it will take herculean efforts similar to the one from Skip tonight (season high 24 poontas and NO TURNOVERS!!) to keep this train on the tracks during the home stretch. With this 17 game winning streak, the focus has shifted from merely making the playoffs, to now, pushing for home court advantage in the first round...and, hell, let's make a run at the Spurs for the top spot as we're currently only 2 1/2 games out (only 1/2 game behind N.O. for the 3 spidot).

Next up, N.O. comes to the 'Yota center Saturday night as we strive to get legal...18 baby!

the game face is pleased!
and there it is...
