After two tough road games, the Houston Rockets returned home to the Toyota Center, but had their work cut out for them as they faced the San Antonio Spurs who shook them right back to reality – – and a negative record.

. 94. 169. 104. 29

In a battle between Texas powerhouses the clash seemed like déjà vu to the Rockets comeback effort versus the Blazers. Ultimately the Rockets were just teasing H-Town fans as the ball just wasn’t falling tonight, and the opposition reminded us of who they are – –  the Spurs!

With Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge combining for over 50 points, the Spurs just completely blasted the Rockets who had season lows in points and FG% by halftime.

In the fourth quarter the Rockets once again tried to mount a comeback but it was too little too late, here’s the player grades:
