On December 7, 2003, the Houston Rockets defeated the Detroit Pistons 86-80.
Yao Ming contributed 22 points, 20 rebounds, 3 assists and 4 blocks. This is the first time in his NBA career that he scored “double 20” in a single game.
Before the game, people speculated how exciting the confrontation between the little giant Yao Ming and Big Ben Wallace would be, but they did not expect that Yao Ming’s performance completely overwhelmed Wallace.
Yao Ming is unstoppable in the interior, and the Pistons are dwarfed in the interior.
The little giant scored 22 points on 9 of 18 shots and grabbed 20 rebounds, 3 assists and 4 blocks.
Under his leadership, 5 Rockets scored in double figures, while Wallace only scored 7 points, 10 rebounds and 1 block.
In this confrontation between the little giant and Big Ben, Wallace, the NBA’s best defensive player, NBA bench press record holder, and “rebound king” was obviously at a disadvantage.
