Notebook: Rockets 106, Heat 103


Matt Miller, for NBA.com
Posted Wed Mar 05, 2014 12:30 AM - Updated Wed Mar 05, 2014 12:30 AM

THE FACT: Dwight Howard became the first Rocket to post 40 double-doubles in a season since Charles Barkley (42) in 1997-98.

THE LEAD: Dwight Howard led five Houston starters in double figures with 22 points and 16 rebounds and the Rockets ended the Miami Heat's eight-game winning streak with a 106-103 victory Tuesday at Toyota Center. The victory also snapped the Heat's string of seven straight wins against the Rockets.

James Harden added 21 points and 11 assists, while Terrence Jones also finished with a double-double, scoring 19 points and grabbing 12 boards. The Rockets (41-19), winners of 12 of 14 overall and a season high-tying six in a row at home, improved to 13-0 at home this season against Eastern Conference competition.

Dwyane Wade netted 24 points and dished out six assists to pace the Heat (43-15), who remain two games behind the Indiana Pacers in the race for first place in the Eastern Conference. A noticeably fatigued LeBron James finished with 24 points and six assists, while Michael Beasley contributed a season-high 24 points on 9-for-13 shooting off the bench.

QUOTABLE: "I fought through it in the first half, but it just wasn't there for me."
-- LeBron James on his lack of energy in the wake of Monday's historic performance

THE STAT: James, who poured in a career-high and franchise-record 61 points Monday against the Charlotte Bobcats, went scoreless on 0-for-3 shooting in the fourth quarter Tuesday. For the first time in six games, James failed to connect on at least 66 percent of his field-goal attempts.

TURNING POINT: The Rockets took a 13-point lead in the opening minute of the fourth quarter when Jeremy Lin hit a 3-pointer, but Miami stormed back to tie the contest at 89-89 with less than eight minutes remaining. Jones helped steady the ship for Houston by scoring the team's next seven points, including converting a reverse layup while drawing a foul. That three-point play sparked an 11-2 run that put the Rockets ahead 104-95 with 2:37 left.

QUOTABLE II: "[Jones] had a huge offensive rebound. He had a big, short left baseline jumper when we started extending the lead out. His last game was tremendous. He's getting his juice back."
-- Rockets coach Kevin McHale on Jones' fourth-quarter surge

HOT: The Rockets' Patrick Beverley has been locked in from the perimeter over the last two games, knocking down 58.8 percent (10-for-17) of his 3-point attempts. After tying a career-high with five made treys Saturday against the Detroit Pistons, the 6-foot-1 guard nailed five more 3s against Miami. In addition to the scorching shooting from the outside, Beverley's intense defensive effort helped Houston disrupt the Heat's ball movement and perimeter offense.

QUOTABLE III: "He brings some of the difference to this team. He comes in with that point-guard mindset of locking his guy down and knocking down shots. He's been big for us since we got him."
-- James Harden on what Beverley means to the Rockets

NOT: The Heat's starters combined to shoot 0-for-12 from behind the arc, led by Shane Battier's abysmal 0-for-5 effort.

GOOD MOVE: The Rockets took the post-up away from James' offensive arsenal and turned him into a jump-shooter for most of the second half by sending Howard over as a help defender and shifting into a zone defense behind the 6-foot-11 center. Of course, James' high level of fatigue also played a factor in his underwhelming outing.

BAD MOVE: Harden tried to beat the Heat's fullcourt press with a home-run pass across the court to Howard with Houston holding a 106-103 lead with less than 20 seconds remaining. The long toss sailed well over Howard's head and traveled out of bounds, giving Miami a chance to tie the game on the final possession of regulation and sent it into overtime. Fortunately for Harden and Houston, James' desperation 3-point attempt at the buzzer did not drop.

NOTABLE: Miami played without reserve big man Greg Oden, who took the night off to rest. "We just told him we don't want him to play [both nights of] a back-to-back right now," coach Erik Spoelstra said. "He should be available the rest of the trip." ... The Heat never led, marking the second straight game in which the Rockets have not trailed. ... Harden has handed out at least 10 assists in back-to-back games for the first time in his career. ... The Rockets improved to 14-2 when all five starters score in double figures. ... Houston has won 19 consecutive games when it reaches 100 points, the longest active streak of its kind in the NBA. ... The Rockets have allowed an average of 19.7 second-chance points over their last three games. ... Miami fell to 20-2 when it scores at least 50 points in the paint. ... NFL stars Adrian Peterson and Andre Johnson took in the action from courtside seats.

UP NEXT: For the Heat: Thursday @ San Antonio, Sunday @ Chicago, Monday vs. Washington. For the Rockets: Wednesday @ Orlando, Friday vs. Indiana, Sunday vs. Portland.
