Game Story

HOUSTON (Ticker) -- Andre Miller and Elton Brand each scored 27 points to lead the Los Angeles Clippers to a 94-83 victory over the Houston Rockets. Brand scored 15 points in the first half, when the Clippers shot 57 percent (24-of-42) from the field and opened a 54-45 lead. The Rockets never got closer than four points in the second half. The Clippers led by as many as 16 points after a 21-8 run in the first half. Wang Zhizhi scored five of his eight points during the spurt, including a 3-pointer. "Those two guys played on the national team together," Clippers coach Alvin Gentry said of Wang and Rockets rookie center Yao Ming. "Whenever you're playing against someone who's been a teammate, there's a little incentive to play well. The 3-pointer loosened him up and he made some good moves to the basket." Houston shot 54 percent (20-of-37) in the first half but slumped to 32.5 percent (13-of-40) shooting after intermission. Yao, who scored 12 points in the first half on 4-of-5 shooting, scored only four points in the second half, making 1-of-4 shots. "(Wang) told us about (Yao's) two best moves and his head fakes," Gentry said. "I think we were as prepared as anyone's been to play Yao." In the teams' first meeting, a 90-89 victory by the Clippers on November 24, Yao scored only four points. Yao grabbed nine rebounds, but Houston was outrebounded, 44-36. The Clippers got 16 boards from Brand and 10 from Michael Olowokandi. "They came in here and were more physical than we were," Rockets coach Rudy Tomjanovich said. "They wore us down, they hurt us on the boards and they got more shots than we did." The Rockets lost for just the second time at home this season. Los Angeles has won three of five games in Houston after winning only twice in 31 tries there. "We came out flat, big-time," said guard Cuttino Mobley, who led the Rockets with 19 points. "You're supposed to come out with some kind of incentive. They beat us at their place and now they're 2-0 against us and that shouldn't be." The Clippers have won five straight games against the Rockets. Los Angeles finished a tough four-game road trip that also included visits to New Orleans, Dallas and San Antonio with two wins.
