Scola Is Helpful in Houston

Houston's Friday night triumph over the Bobcats marked the team's 21st consecutive win. With the victory they pased the 1970-1971 Milwaukee Bucks' win-streak of 20 games. Only the 1971-972 Lakers have more consecutive wins, with 33. With Yao Ming sidelined, and 17-year vet Dikembe Mutombo in his place, each member of the Rockets' squad was a crucial component in every win. Rookie Luis Scola made his contribution on both ends of the floor. In Houston's 89-80 win over the Bobcats the Argentina-native logged 13 points, six boards and one steal. The theft came in the third quarter when Scola stripped Raymond Felton at halfcourt and then capitalized on the play by driving to the basket and grabbing two points. For his stellar display of intensity on the defensive end, the 6-9 forward received the Steal of the Night honor.
