Phoenix
Houston

[HOUSTON] — The Houston Rockets played host to the Phoenix Suns last night and the homeside took care of business. A 131-115 win has the Rockets and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Houston's record up to 23-9 on the season, while the loss drags Phoenix's down to 9-22. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Rockets. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

On this night it was James Harden leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 32 points, 5 rebounds, 12 assists, 0 blocks and 0 steals in 30 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Ask anybody, however - Harden included - and the most important part is that the Rockets walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Though not quite able to steal the show, Dragan Bender did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Suns. Bender's 11 points, 13 rebounds and 2 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Rockets walking away victorious was Houston's ability to limit Phoenix's offensive output. By holding the Suns to less than they usually produce the Rockets made their life considerably easier.

Up next for the reeling Rockets will be a date with the Dallas Mavericks while the visiting Suns will look to bounce back in a matchup with the San Antonio Spurs.
