NBA MATCH REPORT : WIZARDS 131-119 ROCKETS

NBA MATCH REPORT : WIZARDS 131-119 ROCKETS

Guard Bradley Beal kept on fire with his offensive game and 37 points (14-24 shots from the field, 3-8 from the field), 8 rebounds and 3 assists, helping the Washington Wizards beat the Houston Rockets 131-119. The Houston Rockets have their sixth defeat in a row.

Former Rockets player point guard Russell Westbrook also stood out especially with a mixed performance in what was his first game of the night in a row after they faced the Boston Celtics on Sunday.

Westbrook had a triple-double of 16 points, 13 rebounds and 15 assists, but only made 6 of 20 shots from the field and had 5 turnovers.

The performance of both players was the key to the Wizards’ triumph and they ruined point guard John Wall’s return to Washington, his first visit with the Rockets since he was traded last year by Westbrook.

The much desired return of Wall, which had a video of recognition by the Wizards, occurred at the worst moment of his new team that came to the game with few players when having the losses of center Christian Wood, power forward PJ Tucker and bodyguard Eric Gordon.

For the Wizards, it seemed like a winnable game, but what stood out during the first half was the Washington team’s lack of physical power after Sunday’s big game against the Celtics.

The Wizards gave up 69 points in the first half, but in the second everything changed with their best defense and they returned to the work they did against the Celtics when they only allowed 91 points.

Wall had 29 points with 9 assists, including 22 points and seven touchdown passes he made in the first half, which was when he made his best individual game, which in the end could not save the Rockets from defeat either.

Houston Rockets

DeMarcus Cousins ​​and Houston Rockets are reportedly facing separation – Lakers are probably interested

DeMarcus Cousins ​​and Houston Rockets are reportedly facing separation - Lakers are probably interested

The Houston Rockets and Big Man DeMarcus Cousins ​​are reportedly facing a split. The Texans apparently want to shrink and rejuvenate themselves in the front court and give cousins ​​the opportunity to stay with another team. There are already interested parties.

As Shams Charania from The Athletic reports, the separation between the Rockets and DeMarcus Cousins ​​could take place in the coming days. Apparently, the 30-year-old center is about to be fired or traded. When released, Cousins ​​could choose his next team as a free agent.

As Kelly Iko (also The Athletic) adds, DeMarcus Cousins ​​was a good influence in the dressing room and helped the young big men in the squad with tips. But the Rockets supposedly want to reduce and rejuvenate their front court. Cousins ​​recently had difficulties with his restricted mobility after an Achilles tendon and a cruciate ligament tear, especially in defense.

After Christian Wood was injured, DMC moved into the starting five, but couldn’t convince in the bigger role. On average, Cousins ​​comes out of the field in 25 missions this season with 9.6 points and 7.6 rebounds at 37.6 percent. The Rockets only announced on Friday that they would guarantee his one-year contract for the rest of the season. This step was probably taken to thank the center for its professionalism and dedication to the team.

According to a report by Kevin O’Connor (The Ringer), the market for cousins ​​is limited. One team that will show interest is allegedly the Los Angeles Lakers. DeMarcus Cousins ​​was already under contract in Hollywood in the 2019/20 season, but tore a cruciate ligament before the start of the season and did not play a game for the Lakers.
