Knicks Steal the Ming spotlight
Rockets Cough It Up
4 critical turnovers late result in 10 Knick points in loss to New York
By Clutch

After a huge comeback in Boston by the Rockets, the Knicks gave Houston a dose of the same medicine.

Led by Yao Ming (who had a large part of the New York crowd cheering for him), the Rockets led by 14 points in the first half, but the Knicks came back in the second half and when the Rockets coughed up 4 costly turnovers late - 2 by Yao - the Rockets were cooked 102-95 in New York.

Cuttino Mobley led the Rockets with 25 while Yao added 24 in his Big Apple debut.
