On Thursday, the NBA suspended Derek Fisher for Game 3 after he decked Luis Scola(notes) with a shoulder block as the Rockets forward set a pick. Houston coach Rick Adelman called the shot “malicious” and said the suspension was justified.

“There was just no excuse for anybody doing that,” Adelman said Thursday.

That sucks for Yao, you could see how much pain he is in. Regular season I think they need to limit him to like 20 minutes a game, his body just won't hold up for the grind. :(

Simmons was kind of touching on this on his BS report yesterday, about how most guys that tall crap out around their late 20's, with Kareem being the exception. I don't think you need to go that far. The wear of the Olympics and the season was probably too much.

Rockets tie series 2-2

Behind point guard Aaron Brook's 34 points, the Rockets SMASHED LA today. LA only had 50 points with like 3 minutes left in the 3rd quarter!!! Kobe struggled today, took 17 shots, but only scored 15 points. I still like the Lakers to take this series, but their weaknesses are being exposed. Their bench is not playing very strong right now and guys are not knocking down shots. No way should LA have been blown out in the manner they were today with Yao Ming not playing.

Yep, the little bit I watched was sickening. Take nothing for granted in basketball, next game the Lakers could look like a juggernaut again.
The Cavs look good but so far they haven't played anyone.

Yeah, but the Cavs are beating no ones, not getting drilled off the court by them.

Artest gets a bad rap but he's actually a very good defender and a very intense player. He gets some really shitty calls from the refs just cause he's Ron Artest. People don't realize he's calmed down a LOT since the fights.
