GAME 42: ROCKETS 112, NETS 106

Dragic, Scola lead Rockets past Nets

NEWARK, N.J.Goran Dragic had 23 points and eight assists,. Luis Scola scored a go-ahead tip-in with 62 seconds remaining and the Houston Rockets beat the Nets 112-106 on Saturday night to snap a five-game losing streak.

Courtney Lee scored 17 points, Chandler Parsons had 16 points and six assists and Chase Budinger and Samuel Dalembert added 15 points each to help Houston beat the Nets for the 11th straight time since the 2005-06 season. Scola finished with 12 points for the Rockets.

Gerald Green had a career-high 26 points on 10-for-15 shooting in just his seventh game for the Nets since being signed from the NBA D-League, and MarShon Brooks added 23 points.

Both teams were without their starting point guard, as the Nets' Deron Williams missed his second game of the season while nursing a strain of his right calf and the Rockets' Kyle Lowry was recovering from a high fever. Williams was listed as day-to-day, while Lowry's status was unclear as he was monitored at a New York hospital.
