I wish this guy was here to drill me now.'''

POLITICAL SUPPORTER
Houston guard Steve Francis made a political fashion statement before the Rockets played the Boston Celtics. Francis, who's been out since last season with a knee injury, arrived at the arena wearing a red velvet sports jacket with ``Barack Obama'' spelled on the back in sequins. Francis said he would try to attend Obama's presidential inauguration.

SLOW START
The Spurs (0-3) are off to their worst start since opening the 1973-74 ABA season 0-4. It was their first season in San Antonio after playing in Dallas as the Chaparrals. The Spurs joined the NBA in 1976.

DOMINANT DEFENSE
Boston shut down Ron Artest and Yao Ming in a 103-99 victory at Houston, handing the Rockets their first loss. Artest missed 13 of 16 shots from the field, scoring 15 points with the help of six free throws. Yao went 4-of-14 from the floor and had eight points. ``Probably one of my worst games of all time,'' Yao said.

SHARP SHOOTERS
The Suns shot 43-of-68 from the field and 12-of-18 from 3-point range in a 114-86 victory over New Jersey. The Nets shot just 34 percent, hitting 28 of 83 shots.

SPEAKING
``Some nights everything is going and you can't do anything about it. I think tonight was just one of those nights we shot the skin off the ball.'' - Phoenix's Raja Bell on opponents trying to defend his team. The Suns shot 63 percent and Bell made all six of his 3-pointers in a 114-86 rout of New Jersey.
