Houston Rockets

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.

Brooklyn Nets

Merciless James Harden: destroy exes with a triple-double and set burning Nets on fire

Merciless James Harden: destroy exes with a triple-double and set burning Nets on fire

Star guard James Harden added a triple-double in the first game against his former team and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Houston Rockets on the road 114-132, who added their thirteenth consecutive loss.

The Nets set a franchise record with their seventh consecutive road win and have won 10 of their last 11 games.

James Harden had 20 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds as attacking director for his new team, the Nets (24-13), who remain second in the Atlantic Division and the Eastern Conference.

It’s Harden’s eighth triple-double this season and his second in a row after he scored 30 points, 14 rebounds and 15 assists in overtime in San Antonio against the Spurs on Monday.

James Harden had a mixed reception from the crowd. Many of the 3,615 fans booed him when they introduced him before the game, and more boos came the first few times he touched the ball.

The same happened with coach Mike D’Antoni, who did not want to continue with the Rockets and is now assistant to the Nets coach, Canadian Steve Nash.

The Rockets released a video showing some of the countless highlights from their eight seasons in Houston during a first-quarter timeout.

There were more boos than applause as he played. James Harden walked off the Toyota Center track and raised his arms before placing his hands in a prayer position to acknowledge the fans when he finished.

Point guard Kyrie Irving had 24 points and forward Joe Harris added 19 that also helped the Nets win, who for the eighth consecutive game played without injured star forward Kevin Durant.

Point guard John Wall had 36 points as the Rockets’ best scorer, but they did not prevent one more loss in the face of the lack of definition of the style of play of the Houston team, which this season have coach Stephen Silas on the bench.

Guard Victor Oladipo scored 33 points as the Rockets’ second leading scorer, while forward Jae’Sean Tate contributed a double-double of 12 points and 10 rebounds as the team’s best player in the paint.

But the Rockets remained losers in the longest losing streak for the Houston team, which only had eight players available due to injuries since losing 15 in a row in 2001.

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.
