Houston Rockets Net Substantial Victory Over Mavericks

By Andre Cantalogo

Your Houston Rockets claimed one of their most importantly wins and not just because they were facing their fierce rivals the Dallas Mavericks. No, it was more because the Rockets are running out of time to take care of business and right the ship.

On the first night of a back-to-back set the Rockets suffered from the onset with a height disadvantage given Donatas Motiejunas and Dwight Howard were not dressed.  The  high paced game featured Houston going repeatedly to the three-point line given their lack of depth. In the end the Rockets managed to grab a hard fought road win.
