Landry returns to lead Rockets past Clippers

HOUSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- Before the season started, most everyone within the Houston organization was certain that, even without injured superstars Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady, the Rockets would be able to compete.

A scrambling defense and a pedal-to-the-metal approach on offense would take care of that.

But while the Rockets would compete, nobody was really sure if they would be able to complete games sans their go-to stars. Well, they're doing just fine in that department, thank you.

The latest proof of that came Tuesday before a crowd of 17,126 at Toyota Center. Facing a Los Angeles Clippers team that was imposing physically, if not record-wise, the Rockets again made all the right moves at all the right times to earn a 108-99 victory, their ninth win in 12 games.

"It was a good win," said Rockets coach Rick Adelman. "In the first quarter we certainly didn't guard anyone, but I thought we settled down and in the fourth quarter we made some big plays to win the game."

That they were able to make those big plays was the most impressive aspect of the victory, considering that the Rockets managed to pull it off despite getting few contributions from their two leading scorers, Aaron Brooks and Trevor Ariza.

The two combined for a mere 14 points on 4-for-19 shooting, which could have left the Rockets desperately searching for offense. But with Carl Landry and Kyle Lowry leading a 62-point bench effort, the Rockets were able to chalk up another win.

"That (different players stepping up) has been a constant all season with our team," said Luis Scola, who led the starters with 19 points. "That's what we were talking about before the season started, and so far we are doing it right. We need to keep it going because that's the only way we are going to succeed."

With Brooks and Ariza struggling, much of the fourth-quarter offensive grunt work was left to Landry, who gave the Rockets an early Christmas gift by coming back from dental surgery to lead the charge against the Clippers.

Landry dropped in 13 of his team-high 27 points in the fourth quarter, a kinetic performance that left an impression on the Clippers.

"Wow," said Clippers' forward Marcus Camby when asked about Landry. "He just keeps getting better and better every game he plays. He is undersized, but he plays so much bigger on the court."

Landry's return could not have been more well-timed.

Facing the Clippers' twin towers -- 7-foot Chris Kaman (a career-high 29 points) and the 6-11 Camby (12 points, 19 rebounds) -- the Rockets needed an interior scorer to balance out the offense and take some of the load off Luis Scola.

Mission accomplished.

"Camby is a great shotblocker, and Kaman is having a heck of a season, so our job -- me, Luis and David Andersen -- was to come in and attack them," Landry said. "We wanted to be aggressive and make them work at both ends, and that's what we did."

Even if it meant exposing Landry's tender mouth to even more hits.

"I took a close hit to the mouth tonight, and I thought about it for a couple of possessions," said Landry, laughing. "I was thinking that maybe I should come out, but I'm fine. After what I went through, when it's late in the game, a couple of (hurt) teeth aren't going to keep me out of the game."

The Rockets got another gift on this night -- McGrady. The 6-8 swingman looked very much like his old self, riddling the Clippers for 10 points and three assists in just under eight minutes of action.

"I felt good out there," said McGrady, who had his first double-figure scoring game since Feb. 7 of last season against Minnesota. "Each game I'm getting better -- I'm feeling a little more confident, in a little bit better rhythm and a little bit better shape.

"It's a process. There's really not much you can do in seven minutes, but I'm just gradually trying to just go out there and not think, just play off instincts."

McGrady, still having his minutes budgeted as he returns from microfracture surgery, put on a clinic in his brief stint.

Subbing for Shane Battier with 7:50 to go in first period, McGrady needed just 11 seconds to knock down his first shot, a 20-footer from the top of the key. After drilling a 21-footer from the wing, McGrady then attacked Kaman off the dribble to draw a two-shot foul.

McGrady, who added two more free throws and a driving layup to finish off his scoring, ended the period -- and his night's work -- by hitting Kyle Lowry (16 points and a team-high seven assists) for a 3-pointer that gave the Rockets a one-point lead entering the second quarter.

It's all about being aggressive, McGrady said.

"Absolutely. That's my whole thing," he said. "I'm just trying to get back to where I need to be. Those first few games, I was just trying to feel it out. I didn't want to come out (and play) because we had such a great chemistry going on with our team.

"I didn't know how to approach it when I got thrown out there. I'm feeling things out with how the team is playing and tonight I just went out there and played basketball."
