Game 54 - Nets @ Rockets - Tuesday, February 17, 8:30

Assuming the Nets have the same players they do Monday, the big story in Houston will be Yao Ming vs. Yi Jianlian. But then that assumes Yi will play, returning after a 16-game absence. He plans on playing in spite of some swellling in his pinkie and tape wrapped around two fingers. The game is expected to attract as many as 200 million viewers in China. Stromile Swift has returned to the team.
