Notebook: Rockets 104, Spurs 98


Matt Miller, for NBA.com
Posted Mon Apr 14, 2014 11:48 PM - Updated Mon Apr 14, 2014 11:48 PM

THE FACT: The Houston Rockets swept the season series with the San Antonio Spurs for the first time since 1988-89 and only the second time in the history of the Interstate-10 rivalry.

THE LEAD: Dwight Howard scored 20 points and grabbed 17 rebounds, leading three Rockets with at least 20 points as Houston made a late charge to defeat the Spurs 104-98 on Monday at Toyota Center. Terrence Jones finished with 20 points and 11 rebounds, while Chandler Parsons added 21 points and seven rebounds for the Rockets (54-27), who secured home-court advantage in their first-round playoff series with the Portland Trail Blazers by winning at home for the 15th time in their last 16 attempts.

Marco Belinelli netted a team-high 17 points on 6-for-13 shooting for San Antonio (62-19), which became the first 60-win team in league history to get swept in a four-game season series against multiple teams. The Oklahoma City Thunder also went 4-0 against the Spurs, who had six other players score in double figures Monday. Unlike Houston, San Antonio had the luxury of looking toward the future and rested Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, Tiago Splitter and Patty Mills. Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, meanwhile, each played limited minutes and did not enter the game in the fourth quarter.

QUOTABLE: "Very important win. ... Tonight, we wanted to come out here and take care of business and not rely on the last game. We have to focus on what's important now, which is our brand of basketball going into the postseason."
-- Rockets guard James Harden

THE STAT: Houston, which ranks second to last in the league in turnovers, committed a season-low six turnovers.

TURNING POINT: The Rockets struggled mightily to get stops on the defensive end as they watched a 14-point lead quickly vanish as the game approached the home stretch. But Houston's defense reappeared when it mattered most. The Rockets held the undermanned Spurs scoreless on five of six possessions during an 11-2 run that turned San Antonio's 90-87 advantage into a 98-92 edge for Houston.

QUOTABLE II: "[The Spurs] got loose on some coverages where they got in the paint a lot. We were able to make some adjustments. ... That's what we needed to do -- and not turn it over."
-- Rockets coach Kevin McHale

HOT: Jones and Parsons were a two-headed monster for Houston in the second half, combining for 27 points on 10-for-17 (58.8 percent) shooting and 11 rebounds in addition to their key defensive contributions.

NOT: The Spurs rely heavily on the 3-point shot, but they have struggled to find their range in recent meetings with the Rockets. After shooting 4-for-17 (23.5 percent) from behind the arc Monday, San Antonio has connected on only 25.0 percent (15-for-60) of its attempts from long distance over its last three games against Houston.

GOOD MOVE: As odd as it may sound, San Antonio played its best basketball after coach Gregg Popovich pulled Duncan and Parker from the game for good in the third quarter. The Spurs' role players scored on 12 of their next 15 possessions and locked down the Rockets on the other end of the floor, flipping a double-digit deficit into an 87-82 lead.

QUOTABLE III: "I thought [the reserves who changed the game in the second half] were great. It was a good night. We got the minutes we wanted to get for certain guys and got a lot of guys some extra minutes. Nobody got hurt, so it was a good night."
-- Gregg Popovich

BAD MOVE: Harden nearly earned an early exit late in the second period when he lost control of his emotions and committed a blatant offensive foul against Ginobili, because he was upset that the officials did not call a foul on Ginobili seconds earlier. Harden not only picked up his third foul of the game, but also a technical foul before he was restrained by teammate Patrick Beverley.

NOTABLE: Parsons (sore wrist, hip) and veteran forward Francisco Garcia (sore back) returned to action after missing Saturday's win over New Orleans. ... Parsons was involved in a car accident outside Toyota Center just before he arrived to play Monday's game, and the third-year pro said the other driver involved asked for his autograph in the aftermath. ... Houston finished the regular season 33-8 at home, matching its record for wins at Toyota Center set in 2008-09. ... The Rockets improved to 11-0 when Jones scores at least 20 points. ... Houston out-rebounded the Spurs by an average of 52.3-40.3 in their four meetings. ... San Antonio can match its franchise record for victories in a regular season if it defeats the Lakers in its season finale.

UP NEXT: For the Spurs, Wednesday vs. L.A. Lakers. For the Rockets, Wednesday @ New Orleans.
