Landry burns Rockets in his return to Houston

HOUSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- In Carl Landry's return to Houston, the Sacramento Kings took a page from the third-year forward's book.

With Landry leading the way, the Kings hustled, scrapped and gritted their way to an 84-81 victory over the Rockets on Wednesday at Toyota Center.

Sacramento's offense struggled mightily for most of the game, but its effort after missed shots made the difference. Despite shooting only 32 percent overall, the Kings' 24-13 advantage on the offensive glass led to 23 more shots and 16 more second-chance points than Houston.

"We didn't make a lot of shots, but we played defense," Landry said. "Defense wins games.

"(Our young guys) just continued to attack the boards. I just tried to stay calm and collective and let the game come to me."

Landry made his return memorable, scoring a game-high 22 points while grabbing a team-high 10 rebounds. After he was greeted with a standing ovation when starting lineups were announced, Landry repaid the 15,651 fans in attendance by giving his trademark gutsy effort in the first half.

Landry played with even more energy in the fourth quarter, using his body to his advantage on defense while effectively dismantling Chuck Hayes in the post. After the game, he had no problem cracking jokes at his former teammate's expense.

"Chuck had a long night, didn't he?" Landry said. "It was fun. I didn't get that opportunity much in practice when I was here. He tried to get me with his spin move, but it didn't work.

"We talked a little trash, but that was all. That's my man. I'll probably go over to his house tonight and get a plate (of food)."

That intensity spread to his teammates, as Sacramento (21-40) kept the paint clogged and forced Houston (30-30) into numerous mid- and long-range jumpers. With the Rockets unable to regain the shooting touch they found against Toronto on Monday (51.2 percent overall), the Kings didn't need much offense to win.

"It was very gratifying," head coach Paul Westphal said. "To get a road win with our offense struggling to get baskets was big."

Although Sacramento entered Wednesday with a 5-26 road record and was on the second night of a back-to-back, it was Houston that looked sluggish for most of the game. The run-and-gun Rockets wanted to push the ball and keep the Kings' off-balance, but had no way of doing so because of their rebounding and offensive struggles.

Wednesday's loss also exposed one of Houston's biggest weakness  the lack of a consistent presence in the post. Aside from Luis Scola, (game-high 18 rebounds) the Rockets' top rebounders Wednesday were wing players Kevin Martin and Chase Budinger (eight boards each).

"(I'm) just not happy with the way we played," head coach Rick Adelman said. "They beat us to every loose ball. They killed us on the boards. I don't know if we thought we were going to come out here and blow a team out just because we won a game the other night."

After scoring more than 100 points in its last three contests, the Rockets' new-look offense was looking awfully effective. But the Kings had a solution to Aaron Brooks and their former teammate Martin, who was coming off three consecutive 28-plus point outings.

Martin was held to 14 points points on 3-of-13 shooting, mainly because players such as Francisco Garcia kept a hand in his face throughout the ball game. Martin struggled to penetrate against a Kings front line that was more than familiar with his favorite spots on the floor for slashing and shooting.

"I thought we played good defense, but we just didn't get into any type of rhythm," Martin said. "There was no flow or anything tonight. You hold a team to 32 percent (shooting), you would bet any amount of money that you would win. But not tonight."

Brooks led the Rockets with 22 points, but shot only 9-of-25. He struggled to penetrate against Tyreke Evans, whose lengthy wingspan caused problems for any player who matched up with him Wednesday.

Despite all of this, the Rockets still may have won with a better effort at the free-throw line. But they shot 16-of-26 from the charity stripe, allowing Sacramento to end its four-game losing streak on the road.

But while Houston's offense experienced issues, its defense played well enough to keep the score close. In terms of opponents' field-goal percentage, the Rockets put together their top performance of the season, holding Sacramento six percent below their previous best.

Shane Battier blocked a career-high seven shots and shut down Evans, who failed to score in double figures (nine points) for only the second time in the last 52 games. But Landry's aggressive approach in the paint kept the Rockets' interior defense reeling all night.

Brooks made a layup to cut Houston's deficit to 82-80 with 33.4 seconds remaining. Evans misfired on a mid-range jumper that would have essentially put the game away on Sacramento's next possession. He made matters worse by fouling Brooks on the ensuing Rockets possession, but Brooks missed the front end to leave the Kings ahead, 82-81.

On its next possession, Sacramento went to Landry, who was fouled immediately after catching the inbounds pass. But with the fans now booing, Landry calmly swished both free throws to give Sacramento an 84-81 lead.

Brooks had one last chance to tie the game, but couldn't connect on a wide-open 3-pointer at the buzzer.

That was exactly what Landry wanted to see.

"I just wanted to win," Landry said. "When Tyreke got that rebound at the end of the game and the horn sounded, it was a sigh of relief."
