11 game win streak

The Jazz knocked off the Raptors today for their 11th straight win. Which reminds me, weren't the Raptors the 10th game in my 10 game prediction? Why yes they were. I don't want to pat myself on the back too much but I am guessing that anybody who read this post thought I was crazy. Maybe I was but holy smokes they won all 10 of them like I predicted and are riding an 11 game winning streak, sit atop the northwest division, and currently have the 4th seed. Go Jazz!

Yao thinks he's 6'9

Best moment of the Jazz win over the Rockets:

Memo Okur was guarding Yao Ming and he tied up the ball so the officials called a jump ball. When the ref threw it up in the air, the 7 foot 6 Yao shoved the 6 foot 11 Memo with both hands and then jumped to knock the ball to his waiting teammate. The refs of course called a foul on Yao and awarded the Jazz possession of the basketball. Yao is 7 inches taller than Memo but it looks like he thinks that isn't enough of an advantage to win a jump ball!
