Rockets drop Kings to wrap up busy eight-game stretch


By Michael Murphy, for NBA.com

HOUSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- Talk about your perfect endings.

The weary Rockets, who were hosting Sacramento Saturday, were finally finishing up a brutal stretch of eight games in 12 nights. And they had played four of those games in the previous five days, including a tough last-second loss at Atlanta the previous night.

While all that could have meant a jet-lagged, flat-lined effort, the Rockets instead had enough bounce left in their step to drop a near-perfect finish on the Kings and lock up a 113-106 victory before 16,202 at Toyota Center.

"It was a really long, hard week," said Rockets forward Luis Scola, who finished with 22 points and 12 rebounds. "We battled and played hard. This was a huge win for us. I believe that if we play hard like this, we're going to win."

With the hard-earned win over the Kings, the Rockets improved to 4-0 on the second game of back-to-backs. The flip side is that they are 0-4 on the front end, which coach Rick Adelman attributes more to the quality of the competition -- Portland, Dallas, Phoenix and Atlanta -- than any lack of effort by the Rockets.

"I like the way we are responding," Adelman said. "Even tonight, both these teams were really competing. But we were able to do what we were supposed to do in the fourth quarter and come out with the win. These are the types of games that we have to get at our place to keep our heads above water."

Above water? Against the Kings the Rockets appeared to be in hot water, with Aaron Brooks and Trevor Ariza enduring tough shooting nights (combining for 27 points on 10-for-27 shooting) and Sacramento exploiting its size advantage inside.

A short hook off the glass by Jason Thompson gave Sacramento a 101-99 lead with just over four minutes to play, but the Rockets, fueled by Kyle Lowry's floor game, ripped off an 8-0 run over the next three minutes.

Lowry began the run with a pair of free throws and added two of his team-high eight assists to get by the Kings, who had used a similar late-game run to beat the Rockets just over a week ago.

Lowry first found Scola for a jumper near the foul line to take a 103-101 lead. He then hit Carl Landry for a reverse layup for a 105-101 lead with 3:04 to play. Ariza finished off the mini-run with a pair of free throws, giving the Rockets a six-point lead with 1:24 to play.

"Man, he [Lowry] is an amazing point guard," said Landry, who had 20 points and seven rebounds off the bench. "He can start for almost any team in this league. ... I love playing with him as a teammate. He makes things so much easier for me."

The late burst by the Rockets was a tough blow for the equally resilient Kings, who were playing not only without Kevin Martin and Francisco Garcia, but also minus star rookie Tyreke Evans, a late scratch because of a sprained right middle finger.

But the Kings, mirroring the Rockets' attack, moved the ball to the open man and got out in transition, two reasons they were able to place seven players in double figures. Spencer Hawes led the way, working the smaller Rockets over in the paint to finish with 24 points. Omri Casspi, shining in transition, racked up a career-high 17 points, while Beno Udrih kept the offense crackling with 18 points and eight assists.

"I like the spirit and the effort on this team," said Kings coach Paul Westphal. "Everyone should be pleased with the way they're playing. I like the way we compete every night, but I'm sorry we couldn't cash in on that effort. This team has heart, but we haven't learned how to win."

Not all the Kings were happy with the moral victory, though.

"This team needs to learn the will to win close games," said Thompson, who finished with 15 points, only four of which came in the second half. "We started to learn this at home [with a 109-100 victory over the Rockets], and now we need to learn how to win close games on the road."

After so many games in so few nights, the Rockets now get a much-deserved break before hosting Dallas Wednesday.

"We've said it since Day 1 -- we want to keep our heads above water," said Rockets forward Shane Battier, who had 14 points. "We want to stay in the race. We know it's a tough schedule. I'm not making any excuses for our record (8-6), but it's the [toughest] schedule in the NBA to this point.

"Once the schedule breaks we have to be in position to take advantage of it and make a run like we have in years past. We just want to not have any losing streaks. If we lose, we just want to bounce back, get a win and build."

It's working so far.
