Steve Francis picked a good time to go for a career night.
Francis hit a three-pointer to tie the game in regulation and dished the game-winning assist to Yao Ming for a slam with 10.2 seconds left in overtime as the Rockets stunned Shaquille O'Neal and the Lakers 108-104 Friday night.
As for Yao-Shaq, don't let the box score fool you.
Yao's defense on Shaq tonight was phenomenal, despite 31 from the Lakers big man. Yao (5-14 from the floor, 10 points, 10 boards) had 6 blocks -- 4 of which came on Shaq -- and until overtime, when Shaq had two slams over the Chinese Sensation, Yao kept his center counterpart from getting good position close to the hoop.
