Rockets Shake Off the Rust in Win Over Jazz

posted by Andrew Pisano - 

The Rockets played their first game since Sunday, but it didn't take them too long to get back in rhythm.  Houston drained 18 from downtown in their 112-101 victory over Utah Thursday night. 

James Harden received a technical on a questionable call in the 1st quarter, to which he immediately responded with a 3-pointer while getting fouled to make it a 4-point play.

The Rockets put the game out of reach in the 3rd quarter, which seems to be the trend as of late, outscoring Utah 37-20.

Chris Paul was one rebound short of a Triple-Double, but finished with 18 points and 13 assists.

Ryan Anderson made his first 8 shot attempts, ultimately scoring 23 for the night, while hitting the most 3-pointers of the team with 5.

James Harden ended his night with 29 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1 steal leading his team to their 8th straight win.
