The Houston Rockets didn't know the true ill effects of their costly win until they logged in to the lotto standings this morning, but Wednesday night's inexcusable 115-87 rout of the Sonics could have head coach Jeff Van Gundy cancelling all practices this week.

"I was watching Yao with the spin moves and I told Ray [Allen] 'Dude, I think they're trying'," said Seattle forward Chris Wilcox.

A Rocket loss would have put the Rockets just percentage points away from the 7th spot. Instead, the mysterious victory has Houston tied at #11 with Chicago, while Golden State edged in front of both after their stunning upset loss against the frigid Hornets.

"We came home and got a huge 'L'," said Warriors guard Jason Richardson. "Nobody believed we'd lose this game but us."
