Terrence Jones Emerges as Houston Rockets Dispatch Hornets

By Andre Cantalogo

The Houston Rockets hosted Charlotte Hornets this Monday night in a rather lukewarm game which saw the home team prevail.

The Hornets shot an abysmal percentage of only 34% of their field goals but managed to stay in the game late due to the Rockets substantial number of turnovers and player fouls.  Therefore throughout the game we were treated to a series of sloppy plays with one team handing the ball to the other who in turn just couldn’t score.

In the end the Rockets managed to hold off the Hornets due to brilliant performances by Terrence Jones and James Harden.

And the Rockets are (finally!) over .500!!
