The Rockets recorded their best field goal percentage of the season, shooting 58 percent(46 for 79) from the field, and 52 percent(13 for 25) from behind the 3-point line in a 124-86 route of the Utah Jazz.

Playing without Dwight Howard, who sat out with an ankle strain, Terrence Jones led the way with 30 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 blocks. Omer Asik started in Howard’s place and recorded his first double-double of the season with 12 points and 11 rebounds. Patrick Beverley scored 19 points and grabbed 7 rebounds, as James Harden played just 27 minutes, scoring 15 points on 5 of 10 shooting. Jeremy Lin and Jordan Hamilton were effective off the bench: Lin added 17 points and 9 assists, and Hamilton scored 15 points.

The Rockets have now won 9 straight home games and will host the Minnesota Timberwolves Thursday night.
