Yao Ming hit the floor, and the Rockets seemed certain to crash, too. For most of the night, they refused.
Moments after Yao was carried off the court in screaming pain with a leg injury, they opened up a lead. As he was taken to Memorial Hermann for an MRI, they pushed the lead to 11 and held off the Los Angeles Clippers through the second half.
(Yao was diagnosed late Saturday with a non-displaced fracture in his right tibia. He will be out at least six weeks.)

He was making a case of being the best center in the league. The Rockets will sure miss him, he's been a huge reason for their success thus far.

They better hope for Tracy McGrady to return soon.
