The Houston Rockets ended their four-game losing streak with a 136-105 victory over the reeling San Antonio Spurs at the AT&T Center on Friday.
This has been a seesaw start to the 2018-19 season for the Rockets, to say the least. Their recent losing skid was preceded by a five-game winning streak in which things seemed to be getting on track for head coach Mike D’Antoni.
Chris Paul‘s return to the lineup after a three-game absence was a success with 14 points and 10 assists in 28 minutes. James Harden and Clint Capela also registered double-doubles in the win. Harden finished with 23 points and 10 assists. Capela dropped 27 points and grabbed 12 rebounds.
LaMarcus Aldridge led the Spurs with 20 points. DeMar DeRozan had 18 points and five assists in the loss.
The Rockets return home to Toyota Center on Saturday to host the Chicago Bulls at 8 p.m. ET. The Spurs will play the Portland Trail Blazers at the AT&T Center on Sunday at 7 p.m. ET.
