It didn't take Crazy Ron Artest long to influence the entire Rockets team. Artest continues to embarass himself with his "defensive play." He brutalized Paul Pierce and Ray Allen tonight in NH. The always soft and playoff gag-master Tracy McGrady got into the mix by shoving Bill Walker to the ground and then mixing it up with Pierce and Eddie House. Here's a news flash: it takes more than cheap play to make you title contenders. Oh yeah, the C's won 90-89 thanks to a Gabe Pruit 15-footer with 6 seconds left.
