Orlando
Houston

[HOUSTON] — The Houston Rockets played host to the Orlando Magic last night and the Rockets did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 100-93 victory. The win bumps Houston's record up to 29-9 on the season, while the loss drags Orlando's down to 16-22. Despite the victory, the result is somewhat hollow considering the offense that seemed to lack much of the kick it's shown so far this season. The Rockets will happily take the boost in the win column, but have much work to do if they want to keep padding their portfolio.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Patrick Beverley's 17 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists, 0 blocks and 3 steals in 31 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Ask anybody, however - Beverley 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, Aaron Gordon did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Magic. Gordon's 18 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

Houston's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Magic, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Rockets will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Rockets will be a date with the Toronto Raptors while the visiting Magic will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers.
