Memphis
Houston

[HOUSTON] — The Houston Rockets played host to the Memphis Grizzlies last night and the homeside took care of business. A 119-95 win has the Rockets and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Houston's record up to 34-13 on the season, while the loss drags Memphis's down to 26-20. Though a win's a win and Rockets fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

An impressive performance from James Harden led all players in the contest and his 29 points, 6 rebounds, 10 assists, 2 blocks and 3 steals in 34 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. 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, Marc Gasol did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Grizzlies. Gasol's 32 points, 5 rebounds and 1 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

From a personal standpoint, Sam Dekker made his presence felt from beyond the arc, toying with defenders all night long and connecting on an impressive 6 bombs. Putting a stop to any NBA calibre talent is no easy task, but even more so when they're red-hot from beyond three-point range.

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 Grizzlies, 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 Milwaukee Bucks while the visiting Grizzlies will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Toronto Raptors.
