Denver
Houston

[HOUSTON] — The Houston Rockets played host to the Denver Nuggets last night and the Rockets did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 110-104 victory. The win bumps Houston's record up to 53-25 on the season, while the loss drags Denver's down to 37-41. 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.

Team results aside, a monster night from Nikola Jokic is all that fans will be talking about as they process the contest. Jokic pumped out a stat line of 12 points, 19 rebounds, 9 assists, 1 blocks and 5 steals in 34 minutes on the night, quantifiable proof of his place among the top tier of NBA players. Unfortunately for Jokic, 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 Denver back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Rockets in the victory was James Harden and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Jokic, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Harden posted 31 points, 7 rebounds and 10 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 Nuggets, 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 Detroit Pistons while the visiting Nuggets will look to bounce back in a matchup with the New Orleans Pelicans.
