4:14 pm on 19 January 2009

The NBA superstar Yao Ming has set a franchise record by making all 12 of his shots en route to 26 points,as the Houston Rockets beat the Miami Heat 93-86.

The Miami star guard Dwyane Wade says it was unbelievable.

He says Yao is so big and they just didn't have anybody to guard him.

Yao overwhelmed Miami centres Joel Anthony and Jamaal Magloire as he broke the club record for most shots without a miss set by Joe Meriweather, who was 10-of-10 at Atlanta on April 11, 1976.
