The Houston Rockets and the Miami Heat are teams going in completely opposite directions. The Rockets got 23 points and 10 assists from Tracy McGrady to fly by the Heat 112-100 last night, reports the Associated Press. The win was the 10th straight for Houston, while Miami lost its 10th straight and has lost 25 of its last 26.

Yao Ming also had 21 points for the Rockets, who have won 14 of 15 and ride their longest winning streak since winning 15 straight in 1993-94. Dwayne Wade had 33 points and Shawn Marion had 10 as Miami became the first team in seven games to score more than 90 on Houston. The Heat, however, never got closer than eight in the second half.
