Rockets deliver knockout blow to Grizzlies

HOUSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- Much of the first half of Wednesday's game between the Rockets and the visiting Memphis Grizzlies looked like a pair of punchy teams that could barely muster the energy to get up and down the floor.

Considering that both teams were playing the second night of back-to-backs, punchy is a pretty good way to describe them.

But Houston coach Rick Adelman told his group at halftime that the first team to throw a punch in the second half would go home with the win. And that was the Rockets, who threw not only the first punch, but one devastating flurry after another to breeze to a 104-79 win before 17,220 at Toyota Center.

"We came out dead in the first half," said Rockets' reserve forward Carl Landry, who finished with 20 points and four blocks. "Rick told us that the team that comes out and throws the first punch is going to win this game. That's what we did. We came out aggressive, threw the first punch, and the outcome of the game was a win."

The Rockets were coming off an 18-point beatdown at Dallas, while the Grizzlies were still licking their wounds after a 14-point home loss to Portland. Both teams dragged their way through a lethargic first half that ended with the Rockets up 43-38.

But with Kyle Lowry and Luis Scola leading the way, the Rockets blew out the Grizzlies in the second half. Lowry, beautifully directing the break, had nine of his game-high 10 assists in the second half, while Scola dropped in 18 of his game-high 22 points to lead the Rockets to a 61-41 blitz.

"I'm really pleased with the second half," Adelman said. "At halftime we talked about the fact that we didn't come out with the energy we needed to. We didn't come out with a spark. But in the third quarter we got into the open court and got some fast-break points."

Getting most of those were Luis Scola and Landry, the Rockets' 1-2 punch at power forward.

Scola punished the Grizzlies inside with 22 points and 15 rebounds, while Landry snaked his way around the bigger Memphis defenders to hit nine of his 13 field-goal attempts. For Landry, the effort capped a four-game stretch in which he averaged 20 points on 72-percent shooting.

"Wow," said Landry, unaware of his recent shooting efficiency. "I kind of got off to a bad start this year. I really wasn't shooting the ball well, and I was a little down about that. But 72-percent shooting, that's really good. I'm just playing really good basketball right now."

The same cannot be said of the Grizzlies.

Indeed, Wednesday's result was just more of the same for the Grizzlies -- it was their seventh straight loss and eighth in nine games to start the season. And it's the second straight game in which the Grizzlies were held to 79 points.

"We haven't made baskets and we've turned the ball over too much," said Memphis coach Lionel Hollins. "I'm just happy the game is over. We can't just watch turnovers and bad plays. If we don't do it on the court, it will be a long season.

"They [the Rockets] outhustled us and got all the loose balls. They did everything they wanted to do to get the win. Their will was stronger than our will."

According to Scola, the second-half run was a nice reminder that the Rockets have play that way every night.

"This was a great teaching game for us," Scola said. "If we play the way we played in the third quarter, then we are going to be able to beat anybody. Our margin for error is so slim, that we can't afford to take a night off, a quarter off or a possession off. We have to play at 100 percent for 100 percent of the game."

That approach allowed the Rockets to again score 100 points, the seventh straight game they have done so. It's the first time in 15 years that the Rockets have strung together this many games of at least 100 points, and they're doing it without their big-money go-to guys, Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming.

Yet the Rockets have flourished on offense, and they've done it by getting back to the basics.

Against the bigger, slower Grizzlies, the Rockets moved the ball (30 assists), got out in transition (27 fast-break points) and made sure they were getting good looks at the basket (44-of-88 shooting, 50 percent), with guys like Chase Budinger (15 points) and Lowry making up for an off night by Aaron Brooks (eight points on 3-of-10 shooting).

The Rockets also ramped up their defense, limiting the Grizzlies to 39.5-percent shooting (32-of-81) and winning the rebounding battle (46-43). O.J. Mayo had 19 points, but got only six second-half shots, and Rudy Gay finished with 18 points, but had three of his shots blocked by Landry.

"I don't know what to say," said Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph, who finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds. "It [leadership] is not coming from anybody. It's like we're out there going through the motions. We get down, drop our heads and stop playing the game."
