In the second half, however, he turned that around, making 7-of-9 shots, scoring 18 of his 21 points, and making a variety of key plays down the stretch, including a steal of a Kevin Durant pass that gave him a career-high five.

--C David Andersen stepped up with the Rockets shorthanded in the frontcourt following Luis Scola's injury. Andersen had 12 points, hitting several shots in the first half, when the Rockets offense was struggling badly, and had a career-high eight rebounds including four on the offensive glass.


--G/F Tracy McGrady (left knee) has been working his way back from microfracture knee surgery, participating in portions of practices. He is scheduled to practice and then undergo an MRI on Monday.

--C Yao Ming (left foot) is expected to miss the season after extensive surgery to repair a fractured bone and reshape the operation of his foot to remove stress on the area.
