After an embarrassing loss where the Houston Rockets got dismantled by the Pistons, the home team ended their two game losing skid Friday with a defeat of the Milwaukee Bucks. A mid-ankle sprain kept Dwight Howard out of his second straight game. Which forced J.B. Bickerstaff to make some questionable changes to the roster.
The most intriguing news of the night was the return of Josh Smith eight months after his exit. Just hours after the Rockets reacquired him in a surprise trade with the Los Angeles Clippers he made his return to the Toyota Center hardwood. Overall, great game for the Rockets, and hopefully this momentum will carry over to Sunday’s game versus the Dallas Mavericks.
