Don't forget that the big Lakers vs. Rockets game is this Friday on ESPN. The last time Shaq opened his big mouth about the "Sacramento Queens", he was made to eat his own words on Christmas Day. Will he end up doing the same after the recent taunts made at Yao ("Tell Yao Ming, 'ching-chong-yang-wah-ah-soh.'")? Trash-talking aside, this is a matchup I'm pumped to see.

I predict that Shaq will have better numbers, but not by much. More importantly though, I believe the Lakers will lose the game and go back into a free fall. YAY

Being a rockets fan here in houston,
I am so looking forward to Friday's game.
As for the matchup, i expect Shaq will get
the better of Yao everytime they play each other
this year. But come next year, Yao will be
the best player in the NBA.

Could I have predicted it much better? I think not. ;-)

Good call, Snooze! Loved to see Shaq get his first three shots blocked by Yao. Round 2 is set for February 18 at the Staples Center.

From the boxscore:

Shaq shot 13 of 26 from the field (50%) for 31 total points and collected 13 rebounds....

Yao shot 5 of 14 from the field (36%) for 10 total points with 10 rebounds...

Shaq kicked his ass.

Oh, yes, the game where the other Rockets had to work 22 points harder to make up for the disparity between Shaq and Yao. Nice job for the Rockets, winning DESPITE Ming. :)

Say what you want about the individual matchup, but if I was playing, I would gladly take my counterpart having a better game than me every single time as long as my team won every time.

Silly me. Thought the thread was titled Yao vs. Shaq. In that case...congats to Moochie Norris! You dominated Shaq! Despite only scoring two points, you were obviously the better man because your team won!

Come on folks, don't pretend Yao had a spectacular outing against Shaq when he didn't. The win came on the backs of Mobley and Francis (73 total points) who walked all over their matchups. The Lakers suck this year, mind you, but please....

Yao's dunk sealed the deal during overtime. What did Shaq do in the extra five?

I have no problem giving that night to Yao.

He did commit a flagrant foul that is now not one.

I dunno about Shaq vs. Yao, but Stevie Franchise (44 points) definitely took out Kobe (22)

Rikidozan, would having a .571 winning percentage through 7 games work out to a 47 win season over 82 games, not 49? Oh well, minor nitpicking. Anyway, they have gone 2-1 in the past few games, leading to a 6-4 record which works out ot be your 49 wins....
