RYAN ANDERSON. A. After sitting out against the Nuggets with an illness, Ryan Anderson looked like his normal self on Saturday night. Ryno came off of the bench for the first time this season, but he scored 17 points and grabbed 7 rebounds on 4-7 shooting from beyond the arc. As usual, Anderson’s presence really spaced the floor and he hit some big shots to help Houston close the lead in the first half. It’ll be interesting to see if Anderson’s bench role will be a temporary of permanent spot. The Rockets would like to have a top five defense, and starting P.J. Tucker over Anderson will certainly help them in that quest.. Power Forward. Houston Rockets
