Rockets bounce back, coast by shorthanded Raptors

HOUTSON (NBA.com exclusive) -- After the Rockets' defense was abused in a blowout loss to Utah on Saturday, head coach Rick Adelman urged his team to show more consistency on defense.

Monday's 116-92 victory over the Toronto Raptors wasn't a bad start.

"After the first quarter, I thought .... we defended really well [and] did what we wanted to do," Adelman said. "I'm not very happy with the way we played against Utah. ... The effort and activity wasn't where it needed to be all the way around."

Toronto got off to a nice start offensively, nearly matching the Rockets bucket-for-bucket as the teams combined for 65 points in the first quarter. But Houston tightened its defensive screws soon after, limiting the Raptors to 19 points in the second quarter and 18 in the third.

"We have to start from the beginning of the game and be consistent," Adelman said. "We know the plays they're running, and we have to anticipate that and do a good job of making them make an extra pass.

"I think that was probably the biggest thing. We weren't reacting [tonight], we were anticipating."

Houston's offense certainly benefited from this increased focus on defense, as the Rockets scored more than 100 points for the third consecutive contest. Aaron Brooks, who led the way with 28 points and seven assists, used savvy dribbling to maneuver his way into the paint and set up several open looks for his teammates.

"We played as a team today," Brooks said. "I think we are all just getting used to playing with each other. We've been moving the ball. Like I said, today it all started on the defensive end and that led to offense."

Crisp passing and quick cutting paced the Rockets' offense throughout the game. Whether it was Brooks spinning a bounce pass through traffic to create a fastbreak opportunity or Chuck Hayes (game-high eight assists) dishing it to an open teammate on the perimeter, Houston simply had its way with the injury-ridden Raptors.

"That's what we have to keep doing. The cutter doesn't always have to be the one who scores," Adelman said. "He could lead to the opening for the other guy, and that's what we have to keep understanding."

With Chris Bosh -- the Raptors' leading scorer and rebounder -- sidelined for the sixth consecutive game due to a sprained ankle, Jose Calderon's absence only made matters worse for Toronto. Calderon sat out Monday after suffering a lacerated elbow in a loss to Oklahoma City on Sunday.

But when Hedo Turkoglu injured his ankle with 10:20 left in the second quarter, Raptors head coach Jay Triano knew his team would have to deliver one of its best efforts of the season to win.

"Without Chris and Jose, we knew we had to pick it up as a team. We have to create more of a sense of urgency," Triano said. "When three of your top four players aren't playing, it's very hard to win. [But] I don't see any reason to panic."

And the Rockets took advantage, raining 3s and jump shots throughout the night. After shooting 8-of-13 from beyond the arc in the first half, Houston cooled off a little to finish 13-of-25 (51.3 percent).

Kevin Martin, who also finished with 28 points and shot 5-of-8 from 3-point range, set the tone early by draining two deep treys in the first quarter. After that, Toronto had no choice but to respect Martin's range and responded with a more relaxed defensive scheme.

Meanwhile, the lanes were kept clear for Brooks to operate. After he spent most of the first half penetrating to keep the Raptors honest, Brooks taunted them with two 3-pointers in the third quarter, the second of which capped a 35-13 run and gave Houston an 80-52 advantage.

"[Martin and Brooks] are a really tough back court, and I think that they've proven they can put a lot of points on the board really quickly," said Shane Battier, who grabbed six rebounds and blocked three shots despite playing with flu-like symptoms. "If we can just play a little bit of defense we are going to give some teams some fits."

Without Calderon's penetration and range, as well as Bosh's scoring and glass-cleaning, Toronto often settled for mid- or long-range jumpers. Once the Rockets picked up their defensive intensity, the Raptors' shots stopped falling and their point total stopped rising.

By halftime, the Rockets had 18 assists on 23 baskets and four players with at least nine points. So it wasn't much of a surprise that they shot 63.9 percent and generated their highest point total (68) of any first half this season.

But while Houston's offense was on fire throughout, it was its defense that put away the game.

After Toronto pulled within 45-39 on a Sonny Weems fastbreak dunk with 7:50 remaining before halftime, the Rockets started putting more hands in the face of Raptors' shooters.

This, combined with Houston's sizzling shooting and quick ball movement, led to a 32-11 run that put the Rockets ahead 77-50 with 8:55 left in the third quarter.

Toronto continued to throw up bricks from there, allowing Houston to extend its advantage to 36 en route to the victory.

"I'm really proud of the way the guys responded after the tough game in Utah," Battier said. "It helped that they didn't have Bosh and Turkoglu got banged up early, but it was a nice performance on the heels of a tough week last week."
