Notebook: Rockets 97, Spurs 90


Matt Miller, for NBA.com
Posted Wed Jan 29, 2014 12:05 AM - Updated Wed Jan 29, 2014 12:05 AM

THE FACT: For the first time this season, the Spurs are on a losing streak.

THE LEAD: Dwight Howard scored 23 points with 16 rebounds and frontcourt mate Terrence Jones added 21 points and nine boards to lead the James Harden-less Houston Rockets to a 97-90 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday at the Toyota Center. Jeremy Lin finished with 18 points and eight assists for the Rockets (30-17), who snapped a two-game skid overall while winning for the fourth time in their last five home contests.

Boris Diaw poured in a season-high 22 points to go with 11 rebounds to pace the Spurs (33-12), who have dropped back-to-back games for the first time since the Miami Heat defeated them in Game 6 and 7 of last year's NBA Finals. Tim Duncan chipped in with 12 points and 14 rebounds, but San Antonio could not overcome a 55-39 deficit on the glass as it failed to reach 100 points for the first time in 16 games.

QUOTABLE: "We missed a lot of shots, and they came out and hit some. That's going to happen some nights, but we didn't give up. We kept fighting, we hit the offensive glass, Terrence got hot for a little bit and we just kept playing."
-- Dwight Howard

THE STAT: The Rockets moved to 3-0 against the Spurs this season, securing their first season-series victory over San Antonio in the Duncan era. Houston last won the season series with the Spurs in 1996-97, Gregg Popovich's first year as San Antonio coach.

TURNING POINT: Marco Belinelli buried a trey to cap an 11-3 Spurs run that cut Houston's 87-77 lead to 90-88 with less than two minutes left in the fourth quarter. San Antonio appeared to come up with a massive defensive stop on the Rockets' next possession when Aaron Brooks bricked a 3-point attempt, but Howard soared into the air, gathered the offensive rebound and threw down a rim-rattling dunk to stretch Houston's advantage to 92-88. The Spurs never got closer.

QUOTABLE II: "That hurt us bad obviously, especially some big ones down the stretch. I thought, defensively, we did a pretty decent job of controlling the game for a long time, and then it just got away from us. ... We just have to get everybody sort of swarming toward the ball when it gets up there."
-- Tim Duncan on the rebounding disparity

HOT: After struggling through a miserable opening half in which Duncan locked him down with stingy defense, Howard made his presence felt in a strong way during the third quarter. The 6-foot-11 center, who has posted a double-double in six consecutive games overall and nine straight meetings with San Antonio, knocked down 10 of 16 free-throw attempts while muscling his way to 12 points for the period.

NOT: Belinelli was one of several Spurs who failed to find their shooting touch from behind the arc. The seven-year veteran missed six of seven 3-point attempts to spearhead San Antonio's dismal 6-for-23 (26.1 percent) effort from long distance.

GOOD MOVE: Houston crushed the Spurs on the boards with gang rebounding, as its perimeter players crashed the glass in relentless fashion after missed shots on both ends of the court. Six Rockets grabbed at least five rebounds.

BAD MOVE: Popovich attempted to defend Jones one-on-one with Diaw and Matt Bonner, and Jones torched the pair of Spurs with his superior athleticism and strength.

NOTABLE: San Antonio's Manu Ginobili left the game during the third quarter after feeling tightness in his left hamstring. After the game, Popovich said the 6-foot-6 veteran will undergo an MRI on Wednesday morning and will miss that evening's game against Chicago. ... Harden sat out with a bruised left thumb that he suffered during Saturday's loss at Memphis. He traveled with the team to Dallas, and his status for Wednesday's matchup with the Mavericks is unknown at this time. ... Popovich said before the game that starting center Tiago Splitter (strained right shoulder) could be back in the lineup as soon as the end of this week. ... Duncan recorded his 785th career double-double, tying Bill Russell for sixth on the NBA's all-time double-doubles list. ... Popovich remains one win shy of passing Red Auerbach (938) for sole possession of 10th place on the NBA's all-time coaching wins list. ... Howard is the first Houston player to attempt at least 24 free throws in three different contests during the same season. ... The Rockets improved to 5-2 this season without Harden and 17-3 when Jones scores at least 11 points. ... Houston has been held to less than 40 points in the first half of each of its last three games. ... The Spurs lost for the first time this season (8-1) when playing the first game of a back-to-back set on the road.

UP NEXT: For the Spurs: Wednesday vs. Chicago, Saturday vs. Sacramento, Monday @ New Orleans. For the Rockets: Wednesday @ Dallas, Saturday vs. Cleveland, Feb. 5 vs. Phoenix.
