The Houston Rockets come into New Jersey Monday night having lost two straight games at home without leading scorer Tracy McGrady. Houston is near the top of the league in defense thanks to the inside presence of Yao Ming. The Nets are banged up, with Ron Mercer out, and Alonzo Mourning, Jason Collins, Travis Best, Zoran Planinic and Rodney Buford all suffering from minor injuries. New Jersey needs production from their bench, which only scored 7 points against Dallas on Saturday.
