SHAMEFUL
Mavs humiliate Rockets in second half, Rockets humiliate fans
By Clutch
JANUARY 29, 2003 10:42 PM  |  BOX SCORE  |  HISTORY VS. MAVERICKS
Yao Ming was 6-6 from the floor for 16 points in the first half and the team seemed to be clicking, holding a 7-point edge at halftime.

Then the wheels came off... completely.

The Mavs got smoking hot, the Rockets completely fell apart and Dallas went on to spank the Rockets 104-81 in front of a national TV audience.

The way the Rockets crumbled was an even worse sign. No offensive cohesion whatsover, no defensive adjustments on the three-point line (as the Mavs hit 8 triples in a 37-point third quarter), constant complaining to the refs and a couple of near fights.

It was truly an embarrassing half of basketball for Rockets fans.
