The Houston Rockets faced Charlotte to finish their east road trip, but ended up suffering defeat to an inspired Hornets team who extend their win streak to 7.
After winning three tough away games and breaking a couple home-win streaks, the Rockets went to North Carolina to face one of the hottest teams in the league right now: the Charlotte Hornets.
With the help of Marvin Williams’ sharp shooting the Hornets managed to open up a nice lead that had the Rockets in the backseat for the entire game.
Smartly enough J.B. Bickerstaff soon detected Charlotte’s weakness inside the paint and looked to take advantage of it exploring the strength of Dwight Howard and Montrezl Harrell under the rim.
In the fourth quarter it was pretty obvious the Rockets ran out of gas and Charlotte went in for the kill knocking down an impressive number of consecutive three point shots.
