Once more on the Road, the Houston Rockets faced the young Milwaukee Bucks. But, despite a great game by the Rockets star duo, the home court advantage and Jabari Parker snatched the victory.

And the Houston Rockets are sinking without trace under .500 once more in jeopardy of missing the post season.

89. . 121. 169. 128

With Jason Kidd betting on his squad’s reach and especially height, it took a while for the Rockets to adapt to the Bucks long, slim forwards.

Overall the game was very entertaining with both sides favoring their offensive potential over defensive awareness and showcasing a lot of athleticism and dunks. The game was highlighted by great performances from sophomore Jabari Parker and veteran Trevor Ariza.

In the end, despite continuously suffering this year when trading baskets with the adversary, once again the Houston Rockets showed they can’t learn from their mistakes and the Bucks burned them to the ground.
