Last night at Toyota Center in Houston:


The Wizards were helpless against Rockets center Yao Ming, who tied his season high with 38 points on 15-for-25 shooting.


“It felt good leaving my hand. All five of the ones I missed tonight felt good.”

— Wizards forward Antawn Jamison, who shot 4-for-9 from 3-point range


Center Brendan Haywood, who missed his second straight game because of back spasms, said he probably will play today at San Antonio.

“I think I’ll be ready to go,” Haywood said. “It’s one of those things where I can walk around and it feels fine. Then all of a sudden, it will stiffen up, and it seems like I’m right back where I started. It’s one of those things that just takes time.”

Haywood is averaging 7.4 points and 5.9 rebounds a game.

The Wizards game at Boston on Wednesday, originally scheduled for ESPN, is no longer scheduled on the network. But the Wizards’ April 14 game at Chicago was picked up by ESPN.
