Appearing in their fifth game in seven nights, the Rockets were a step or two slower on both ends on the floor. Their defense was ferocious as they allowed the Wizards to score a season high 123 points in the loss.
Although they dug deep to find the extra motivation to close out the game, the Rockets failed to make any stops late the fourth. With the lost, the Rockets fall back to .500 on the season.
