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, Aaron Gordon's 18 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists, 0 blocks and 1 steals in 35 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Unfortunately for Gordon, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Rockets. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Orlando back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Rockets in the victory was Patrick Beverley and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Gordon, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Beverley posted 17 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists in the win.

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.
