Nets Travel to Houston

When the Houston Rockets learned that All-Star center Yao Ming would miss the rest of the season with a stress fracture in his foot, the team's winning streak, then at 12 games, seemed sure to end quickly.

Six more victories later, the Rockets are on the verge of joining some very exclusive company.

The Rockets will try to become only the fourth team in NBA history to win 19 consecutive games Monday when they host the struggling New Jersey Nets.

Nothing to Prove

The Orlando Magic are nine games up on their closest pursuer in the Southeast Division, and have proven they can beat the other top teams in the Eastern Conference.

One club they haven't been able to defeat, however, is the Atlanta Hawks.

Orlando looks for its seventh win in nine games Monday when it hosts the Hawks, the only team in the conference it is winless against this season.
