Still can't believe it...:lol:

Summary:

Houston trail by as much as 10, T-Mac make 2 FTs to tie the game at 90 in regulation.

In OT, last 4 plays, T-Mac bait a shot with no call to take a 96-94 lead. Aldridge later got fouled and 2FTs, rockets miss on the other end, and here comes the heroics.

Roy came down, off balanced Artest and hit a shot to take the lead at 98-96. Yao later got double teamed but hit a fadeaway shot and got the And1. He hit the FT to make it 99-98. With 0.08 secs left, Brandon Roy took the inbounds pass near the sideline, turnaround and shot a high arching 3 that WENT IN!!!! I could have sworn there was no arc!!! But it went in and Portland broke loose.

Yao's and1 was remarkable, but roy's just took it off the records.

Rockets headed to LA with the loss. I was watching this game to see how 'good' Houston is....

Yeah...also the 0.4.

Eh anyway, I made a mistake, it's 00.8, not 0.08....=.= 0.08 is a tip in.

If you watch the video you'll see that Rick Adelman specifically tells Yao to crowd the guy inbounding the ball and use his length and size to shield him from getting the ball inbounds

Ref tells Yao to give some space...so he stands in my estimation at least 5-6 feet from the inbounder and never moves closer to contesting the inbound...DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB PLAY. Yea he's jumpin around but he's not even close to him

he gave enough space for the inbounder to give the ball to Roy who finished the deal

^ LOL I remember that, I think they contrasted with his height, which looks like tallest blocking shortest on the court...but yeah, until you said it, it didn't hit me that he stood quite far away....initially I thought it was to block out that side of the pass or something, like baiting them to pass to Yao's left and the other help defenders can cut the pass off.
