Rockets Defeat Bulls 116-107

The 3-ball came alive for the Rockets in the first quarter, shooting 8-of-13 from downtown.  The Rockets lead the Bulls 35 to 22 at the end of the quarter.

The second quarter basketball however, was not as kind.  The Rockets shot 2-of-11 from beyond the arc, which allowed the Bulls get within 5 at the half.

Houston went on a 14-3 run in the third quarter, and that set the tone for the rest of the game.  

Ryan Anderson struggled again, but made his first and only 3 of the game in the 4th quarter.  "I made one!" Anderson said while walking to the bench after a Bulls timeout.

Trevor Ariza hit three 3s in a row in the first quarter, and then did the same thing in the fourth. 

The team shot 37% from downtown for the game, but still managed to hit 20 from beyond the arc.  

Chris Paul and Eric Gordon had very similar games, each putting up 24 points and dishing out 9 assists.  

Gerald Green did not disappoint of course, scoring 22 points while shooting 4-for-9 from downtown. 

Clint Capela finished with 15 points and 16 rebounds to record his 20th Double-Double of the season.  

The Rockets next game is back home against the Trail Blazers.
